for me the version they blew the roof off the venue in edinburgh with is the definitive one!

(see Greenberg soundtrack). be still thy ego.

Also, I think that cover of Sharivari is pointless. for alternative version to it, I dig the Ectomorph remix
NIce idea to have Carl cover one of theirs back, be interesting, seeing as I’m generally not massively enthused by much of LCD’s songs.
AntonWed, 12 Jan 2011 19:01:51 +0000http://www.littlewhiteearbuds.com/?p=17637#comment-16379I have to agree with Carl. I’ve seen LCD perform this live and it was such a treat. The recorded version might not be as good (difficult to capture all of that energy) but I still think it was worth pressing up. Good on you, C2 for taking this step.

This is a song that James has long been performing as part of his LCD live show and blows the roof off the house when he does. I have been asked too many times when It would be released by fans of mine and his alike. It’s an honor to work with James and his DFA posse and I look forward to covering one of his classics very soon!
With love from Detroit

DiscoMikaelWed, 12 Jan 2011 16:46:03 +0000http://www.littlewhiteearbuds.com/?p=17637#comment-16372have to agree, don’t hate it by any means but there is a lack of pow to separate it from the original. it was at least good opportunity to pick up the original. maybe it will introduce it to some younger audiences?
