‘Little Joy’ from these guys was one of my favourites when it came out. It didn’t even get reviewed here (not enough hours in the day!) which is a shame cos they’re a top band. Temporary Residence know what they’re doing! Here’s a remix 12” featuring 4 tracks.... 2 originals and 2 remixes by Factory Floor and Justin K Broadrick.
The original of ‘Wrapped Coast’ is a beast with huge tribal drum rhythms, chuggy bass, scrawly guitars and low in the mix vocals. Reminds me a little of ‘Drums Not Dead’ Liars but it’s a lot heavier and moodier. It also reminds me a little of Factory Floor but without the techno which is a coincidence as they’ve got ‘The Floor’ to remix it. Unsurprisingly they techno things up with a minimal beat (keeping some of the original rhythms) but it’s much sparser than the clattery original. Both tracks are ace though! Let’s flip it over.
‘All I Can Do’ is a slow driving dubby tune with wandering guitars which eventually turn into squawling guitars. It’s what I term a ‘head nodder’ as that’s what I’m doing uncontrollably as I type. Just as well everyone is too busy to see me looking like a plank. This is a perfect tune for Broadrick to remix. The king of slow and hard fuzzes things up and almost makes them a little shoegazey at times. Shoegaze dub... there you go. Whatever the fuck it is I like it. An excellent single from a band you should really check out if you’ve not done that yet!
