The B-52’s ‎– Wild Planet – 2007 Remix EP (12″)

More from the Planet Clique label and some 21st Century interpretations from The B-52’s 1980 album “Wild Planet” – they also released one for “Whammy!” but Fred hadn’t got his hands on that one.

S’Express (Mark Moore) goes quite Electroclash. About the pet dog “Quiche Lorraine” it chungs on nicely with the main guitar riff and quirky lyrics.

The Grid goes a bit dub step on the lively “Private Idaho”, Michael Ball providing the Soft Cell bassline. Again it works really well, keeping the vocals and the organ riff.

Superjupiter (Norwegian trio of Hal 2000, Ivar Stenrud and Terje Buflod) provides the darkest mix of the compilation. Complimenting the song really well with it’s harder edge. “I’ll give you fish. I’ll give you candy.”

Formatic provide a harsh, full sound with bits of vocals and guitars. Laptop grunge.
