8/10 Brian Staff review, 07 March 2014
Proper wild bit of 60's psych weirdness here. I think I’m not actually playing the correct side. A mid-tempo lollop recorded in an echo-laden cupboard seemingly including murky spider-like vocals verging on the indecipherable and an overwhelming amount of druggy time-and-space distortion. It’s a really fascinating, weird-as-fuck and involving tune with loads of genuinely exciting psychedelic ephemera and disorientating effects. A proper outsider-psych connoisseurs curio for sure.
Without the Rhys Webb and Josh Third remix treatment much of the alarmingly out-there magic of the tune is tragically absent and as an “original composition” it falters, resembling a blandly-paced and almost forgettable plodder that is subsequently not without its gentle merits and undeniable charm.
Kudos to the Horrors boys for transforming a sleepy average tune into something truly cherishable and remarkable. I’m glad I played the flip first as it blew my mind and amps up my “score” considerably.
