- Bowie Tribute Split by Warpaint / Sister Crayon
8/10 Clinton Staff review, 27 August 2010
Warpaint are the lot that Brian likes. Well he's a red blooded male, they are attractive ladies with a predeliction for on stage wind machines - who can blame him? The pressing plant have cocked up the labels so the A side is labelled the B side and vice versa. Idiots. Can't anyone get anything right? Which makes it even more confusing as its a split single but strangely both bands sound the same. Warpaints 'Ashes to Ashes' and its extremely faithful to the original. Again like my whines last week about the same songs being covered over and over I wonder if theres any need for this. I mean Keane all but covered it a couple of years ago. But as its played slower it does have a certain melancholy about it and hearing lovely lady voices rather than the quivery Bowie delivery does definitely add something. They've definitely manage to pull it off with aplomb, Brian. There's a bit of Hope Sandoval in the vocal delivery and something of the XX in the playing of Sister Crayon who tackle another Bowie track 'The Bewley Brothers' on the other side (the B side as we call it in the trade). This song is unknown to me so its of more interest despite the really annoying synth which snakes through the track.
