disappears / cloudland canyon
kraftwerk? ja bitte
a Kraftwerk tribute single, featuring 2 exclusive covers by a couple of sonic cathedral's favourite American bands.
Disappears take on ‘Trans Europa Express’ (note geeky original German spellings; one of the run-out grooves reads ‘Vorsprung Durch Techno-Pop’, the other ‘Kraft Kase’!) & simultaneously humanise it & make it even colder than the original. No mean feat. Cloudland Canyon, meanwhile, get their Geiger counters all over ‘Radioaktivität’. If that wasn’t enough, both tracks were mastered by none other than Spacemen 3 & Spectrum legend Sonic Boom.
