Various Production VARS015: 17th September 2007
“There’s fortune in my name, currency in letters, if this life is just a game, I’ll try to play it better”
“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.
