M|A|R|R|S ‎– Pump Up The Volume (US 12″)

Still Dancing ??

THE track of 1987 from Colourbox and A.R. Kane as Goth/Shoegaze label 4AD went to the dancefloor. (There is plenty of sampled weird guitar in here)

The instrumental is here without most of the samples. Whilst the Bonus Beats is a stripped down to the bone whilst keeping a few samples, a good alternative listen.

Now over to the B-side. Well, well , well. A hidden gem.

Industrial-lite beats and more Colourbox in style. More shoe-gaze in style with buzz saw guitars and dub effects.

  1. Ironically, the track you describe as “more Colourbox in style” is mainly the work of A.R.Kane. I agree it’s a hidden gem, though it’s a shame the US single only has an edited version (IIRC it’s longer than the UK 7″ edit, though).
