Peggy Lee’s “Fever” gets the full 80’s treatment with this cover by Ex-Bow Wow Wow’s front girl, Annabella Lwin. Big electronic drums, sampled orchestra stabs and rock guitars produced by Jimmy Lea of Slade, great fun!
The B-side , “War Boys”, is much more dance floor orientated, with a cheeky nod to Duran’s “Wild Boys”. Produced by John Robie who gives it an electro feel, with loads of short samples chucked into the busy production with plenty of horns and metal guitars. The dub mix is worth a listen for fans of early electro. Remixed by electro pioneer , Raul A. Rodriguez , Hit That Perfect Beat / I.O.U. immediately spring to mind, Robie was Arthur Baker’s right-hand man, not bad for 1986.
