HOT CLUB DE PARIS – Shipwreck / Your Face Looks All Wrong: Remixes (7″ Single)

Moshi Moshi MOSHI48: 16th April 2007
1. Shipwreck (Jamie T & Ben Bones’ Stormy Weather Mix)
“Drowning Bitter, despite of all the late nights, drug abuse, lost times, swear man she just gets fitter”
2. Your Face Looks All Wrong (Lo-Fi-Fnk’s Scouse House Mix)
“Your, your, your face looks all wrong”

Ben Bones and Jamie T (Creator of 2007’s best album so far) have waved a production wand over Hot Club De Paris’ last single ‘Shipwreck’. Jamie’s remix of Gorillaz‘s ‘Kids With Guns’ was nothing short of genius so I expect a lot. I’m not disappointed by Jamie’s insane mix of Folk, Jazz, Ska, messed up Laptronic Bangra (If there is such a thing) and brand new lyrics delivered at almost incomprehensible speeds. With Hot Club De Paris’ shouts of “Stormy weather” it comes across like some mad drunken sing-along on board a fishing trawler.

Any remixer is going to be the underdog when they’re pared up with Jamie T, but Sweden’s Lo-Fi-Fnk rises to the challenge. He’s turned in an hilariously named ‘Scouse House’ remix of ‘Your Face Looks All Wrong’ that comes off like a swarm of killer Bees fighting to the death with a bunch of Ducks while trapped in a Synthesiser!

Check out the original versions of the two tracks if you like your Indie Guitar music to be as mad as Phil Spector.
