The Velvet Underground & Nico album was one of the most underrated albums of its era. It was not a big success of that time, a lot of people was thinking it was a simply egocentric trip of Andy Warhol. After some decades Velvet Underground is recognised as one of the most influential bands of the 70ís, sometimes happen. Beck Hansen started 2 years ago the Record Club, a project in which he re-recorded entire albums with friends, The Velvet Underground & Nico was one of the first albums chosen for the project. Here we are in 2012 and Castle Face, super underground label of Thee Oh Seesís leader John Dwyer, is releasing on vinyl a special remake of the album including a lot of friends and a special cover by glaswegian artist David Shrigley (take a look his works are amazing). The list include Thee Oh Sees for sure, The Fresh & The Onlys, White Fence, Ty Segall and more. The first 500 numbered copies are sold out, but the second press is on board and you can pre-order a copy at [www.castlefacerecords.com].
Here I am to present you Attaque brand new video under Bad Life. Dominic has a very strage story we like the end, he is becoming an amazing producer and a big column of Autokratz label Bad Life, who has inside the Future Techno style. His first EP on Bad Life was 'Light Falls' and it shook the very foundations of electronic music. Huge support from the biggest names and BBC Radio 1 followed, whilst Mixmag made it their "track of the month". I met Dominic last summer at Mysterylan I assure you he is a very nice guy focused on his music. This is Blinded By The Moonlight, enjoy.
Finally A Wrenched Virile Lore, the Mogwai remixes album, is out (under Sub Pop in US and Rock Action | PIAS in Europe). Remixes are not a new way to develope music for Mogwai. Kicking A Dead Pig released in 1998 by Chemikal underground records was the first step. Itís more interesting to listen how the music world of Mogwai is changed in 14 years and which is the point of view of their remixers. Here is a little pill from the album. Letters To Metro (Zombi remix). Zombi is a cool band often all around with Maserati who developed inside also different projects like Majeure very close to electronic sounds tipycal of artists like Tangerine Dream and Giorgio Moroder.
