VARIOUS PRODUCTION – Phortune / Limbs (7″ Single)

Various Production VARS015: 17th September 2007
1. Phortune
“There’s fortune in my name, currency in letters, if this life is just a game, I’ll try to play it better”
2. Limbs
“Sitting by the bed, I can see through her skin, she can hardly breath a word, her body is so thin”

Apparently, Various Production were commissioned to do a Remix of Emma Pollock’s (Formerly of The Delgados) ‘Limbs’ which was rejected when they replaced Emma’s music and vocal (Meaning it was basically a cover).  However, since their version of ‘Limbs’ was so good they reworked another Pollock track called ‘Fortune’ and put both productions on this beautifully packaged 7″.

‘Phortune’ is a delicious mix of Grimey beats (A touch of Re-e-wind) and sweetly sultry vocals.  ‘Limbs’ has the eerie sound of Radiohead and Massive Attack at a creepy midnight fairground.  Both tunes are totally different and totally wonderful, improving on the originals in every way.

  1. Hi! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any issues with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no data backup. Do you have any methods to protect against hackers?

  2. Please let me know if you’re looking for a author for your blog. You have some really good posts and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some articles for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please send me an e-mail if interested. Many thanks!
