8/10 Mike Staff review, 16 April 2014

The first rule of covers is to be wary when approaching an iconic piece of music - there's already a definitive version and most likely already a long list of people who've done it badly. On this 7" Schizo Fun Addict laugh in the face of such rules, going straight for one of the most iconic pieces of film music ever made - Goblin's theme to Dario Argento's horror classic 'Suspiria'.

Thankfully it's far from a straight cover, opening with wildly modulating synths before a pulsating drumbeat comes in with the melody dropped rigidly on the on-beat and some great shuddering Morricone/Link Wray sounding guitar chords. It's pretty groovy actually, it's the drumbeat that saves this one I think.

Over on the other side is a piece of music I'm less familiar with - 'In the Long Run' from Russ Meyer's 'Beyond the Valley of the Dolls'. This is what I was talking about - I'm much less wary of this because I have no attachment to the source material. It's a nice hippie-ish ballad with girls singing and trumpets and jangly guitars. It's got a really warm, sun-bleached Californian feel, a little bit twee but just too indulgently lovely for me to mind all that much. Enjoyable 7". Also comes with a DVD titled 'Towers' which I haven't watched.
