LACK OF AFRO – When The Sun Goes Down (7″ Single)

Freestyle FSR7039: 17th September 2007
1. When The Sun Goes Down
2. Spooky

I’m a sucker for these Funk cover 45s and this is one of the best.  First up is a reworking of Arctic Monkey’s ‘When The Sun Goes Down’ (aka ‘Scummy Man’).  Lack Of Afro have turned it into thrilling chase music from a Blaxploitation film, which is bizarrely set in Sheffield.  ‘Spooky’ is a cover of the Dusty Springfield classic with crashing Mark Ronson style Drums, a gorgeous Sax solo and furious marching band madness towards the end.  Either song makes this 7″ essential.
