Here’s an interesting record. It’s got BJM’s Anton Newcombe putting a couple of tracks from Tim Burgess’s excellent recent ‘Oh No I Love You’ under the knife and turning them into something a bit different and as you would expect, more psychedelic. On the first side he attacks title track of sorts ‘The Doors Of Then’, taking the main vocal line and turning it into a looped mantra over a shuffly Beck-esque rhythm with looped shimmering bleeps, warm boomy bass and ethereal walls of brass which trickle over the track’s crunchy backbone like warm treacle. It’s nothing like the original but it’s really nice.
The other side is clearly marked as playing at 45rpm, but when I do the vocals sound comically pitchshifted and when I play it at 33 the backing sounds weirdly slow, so whichever way you listen to it it’s weird but my money’s on 33, which gives you a long, sultry psychedelic groover with some dense fuzz guitar which buzzes and wibbles invitingly over a lazily stomping beat. These aren’t so much remixes as sample-heavy new songs in their own right, so Brian Jonestown Massacre fans should definitely pick this up.
