out of stock

another strong collection of music from the Late Night series, this mix flows between dark & light, introspection & affection, dancing & horizontal appreciation.

Franz Ferdinand Join the dots between Can, Serge Gainsbourg & The West Coast Pop Art Experimental Band, Sandy's Nelson's percussion work-out 'Let There Be Drums', the irrepressible Ian Dury, funky sensations Zapp & the Disco Dub Band & sonic explorer Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry in a hugely enjoyable musical journey. Also included are a set of waywardly brilliant cover versions: Justus Köhncke’s dizzy interpretation of Neil Young’s ‘Old Man’ & R. Stevie Moore's ‘I’m Only Sleeping'. It wouldn’t be right for Franz Ferdinand to produce a mix such as this without a nod to the country that brought them together, so Glasgow’s Life Without Buildings, whose uplifting ‘New Town’ appears alongside ‘Reach For The Dead’ by Boards Of Canada.
