The B-52’s – Channel Z (UK 12″)

Well you can tell people are back at work. Blog stats are down, enthusiasm (including mine) is down. Dark rain soaked mornings. So here we have the B- 52’s to lighten things up. To me they have been doing the same song for decades, but it’s been a bloody good song! So from 1989 we get Rock Lobster version 2.7 with added Dance bleeps and electronic burbles. Don Was and Michael Hutchinsons produces a suitably weird “Rock Mix” but you gotta love those harmonies. An entertaining  (with messed around vocal effects) and thankfully a not very rocky “Dub” mix finishes off the trio of tracks.
