Fine Young Cannibals ‎– Don’t Look Back (Remix) (12″)

Or FYC as they were marketed in 1989. This was off the hugely successful “The Raw And The Cooked” album and has a bit of an Indie guitar feel with a large drum sound. Remixed by Steve Thompson & Michael Barbiero (& Youth) there was a raft of remixes for that album that even spawned a remix release of the LP.

The 12″ includes 2 more previous singles remixed by Prince Paul and Monie Love. The Cannibals always had a knowing eye on the club scene.

Prince Paul adds a loads of crazy samples on his remix giving it a completely different feel, adding a harmonica rift as well as cut ups from Film / TV Themes and jazzy overdubs, excellent stuff.

On the Monie Love Mix they tighten the beats and minimize the backing but keeping Gift’s fragile vocals on the top until Love raps over it.

Here is the refreshed link to the normal 12″ – you can get the set!
