A couple of posts by other blogger's yesterday is responsible for today's track. First up was SA's over at the Bagging Area where he had posted a belter of a track (aren't they all) by Beastie Boys which got me thinking about Luscious Jackson and then I headed over to the Swede's bit where he had an excellent bit of Scandi Kosmiche called Propeller Propulsion by Swedish four piece Automatism. So after I turned off the lap top I rooted around in the Indie/Hip/Hop/Baggy 12" single cupboard for the Propellerheads heads remix of Naked Eye by the first signing to the Beasties Grand Royal label.
If the truth be told I was rather underwhelmed after playing it, it's alright don't get me wrong but just not as good as I remember it being. That could have something to do with the intervening 23 years, fuck, TWENTY FUCKING THREE years! Unless my memory is totally screwed I did always prefer the British Big Beat duo's remix but now the original mix is the one that's doing it for me. Tastes change I suppose.
Tomorrow I'm going to give Fever In Fever Out, the album Naked Eye comes from a spin. It the present time I have no recollection of any of the other tracks from it! Old age does not come itself.
