I Introduce “Twenty First Century Saturday” – unless “New Music Saturday” crops up once in a while.
So debuting on here are the Scottish group Bis with their cover E.P. of Factory Records artists. Releases by Joy Division (Love Will Tear Us Apart), New Order (Hurt), A Certain Ratio (Shack Up) and Section 25 (Looking From A Hilltop) covered in an electro style.
Bis are composed of Steven Clark (Sci-fi Steven), John Clark (John Disco), and Amanda MacKinnon (Manda Rin).
“Love Will Tear Us Apart” gets electro beats and vocoder. It’s certainly different ! New Order’s “Hurt” isn’t really a patch on the original, still relying on the sequencers.
The remix of “Shack Up” works, normal vocals. A cover of a cover ! Original track by Banbarra (1975) and covered by A Certain Ratio (1980). The highlight is “Looking From A Hilltop” working on the sequencers, it’s a slightly darker but those synth chords make it.
It’s a loud one folks! (sorry Fred) Enjoy some Bis with your breakfast.
