Teaching Children How To Swear

January 12, 2008

The Slutty Fringe love for DFA Records grows ever deeper in 2008, our grubby mitts secured practically the last copy of the excellent new Syclops 12 inch from Phonica last night – Monkey Puss is all sorts of heavy!

And now we share Blind, the first proper release from Hercules & Love Affair, following the limited 12inch put out last year. Blind is on some lovely parpy disco tip with vocals from Antony Hegarty, he of the much vaunted Antony & The Johnsons fame. I Am Bird Now, the Mercury  Music Award winning album, never really tickled this pickle but  whiteman doing Nina Simone seems to fit perfectly over some deep discoid sounds.

And let’s show some love for the awesome remix by Chicago House Legend Frankie Knuckles which goes for a more chugging house beat and adds a more prominent disco bassline and synth washes – Say alot about DFA that they can coax a rare remix of Frank.

Blind will be released on March 3rd, preceding the album which drops a week later!
