Re-discovered in part by Sonic Youth’s Thurston Moore, this limited 12” expanded re-issue does some of the job in satisfying that demand, including the original, a radio edit, and three remixes (including one from Lemon Jelly’s Fred Deakin).

If this record was any cooler you might have to put on some mittens to pick it up and put it on your turntable. I'm not talking a dog in Ray Bans cool, I mean glacial cool. It could probably get into any ultra hip New york night club, where after a few lines of Colombian Devils Dandruff it could be seen draped over a Bolivian supermodel, talking about how amazing some tight trousered new band are. This reminds me of Tom Tom Club with its slick bass line and taut production. Thurston Moore got hold of this at a party and couldn't put it down, allegedly... and that had nothing to do with the super glue incident that befell him earlier that evening. It has some intriguing remixes by some characters from Lemon Jelly and some other cool chipmunk from Advisory Circle!!!!!. It is destined to be a club hit and you should have a looksie...if you can only prise it from Thurston Moore's ultra cool super glued grip.

It's on Betty Botox - Mmm, Betty! compo from 2008 - great track and a good mix CD. Originally from the early 80s.
