David Byrne ‎– Back In The Box (US 12″)

Where Meat Beat Manifesto remixes David Byrne!

Released in 1994 this has a couple of mixes by Jack Dangers as well as a couple of nice bonus tracks.

Jack brings his beats and funks up this track from Byrne’s self titled ’94 album. Giving them street edge as well as being slightly sinister with off-kilter bass behind those distinct vocals.

As a bonus there is a live cover of “Gypsy Woman”, a huge club hit that year for Crystal Waters; here it is guitar led, superb little cover. Byrne attempts a bit ambient with a quiet mix of the track, “A Woman’s Secret” weird instruments are included such as a Jew’s Harp and tribal, primal screams! You would expect nothing less!
