I`m speechless ... Instead of talking, i`m dancing around in my bedroom. The Gossips thundering anthem «Standing In The Way Of Control» is being released again - and with a couple of new remixes. Good ones. Really, really, good ones. Soulwax does one. Headman does one. But the one for me is being served by Tronik Youth! Tronik Youth turns it into a «synth-pop-fest- for-electro-fiends».
It`s just pure energy, and the energy and soul of Beth Gibbon and The Gossip is still intact.
This has to be one of the most deliciously slazy tunes out there. I´m talking of course about Nude feat.Sunny Suits «Black Leather» Biker Mix According to Discogs the lyrics was written by Pete Burns. The Pete Burns? The freak unique? That`s so kool!
«i am what i am / and i do what i like / and i like it on the back of a motor bike / black leather / when i was born i refused to cry / they thought i was dead / but i refused to die / now that i`m old enough to do what i like / i do big heavy muscle boys on motor bikes / black leather / i like `em big, tall, strong and twelve inches long / black leather / i like cold weather / i like black leather / i like warm weather / i need black leather / put me all together / put me togheter black leather / now that i`m old enough to have what i like / i have big heavy muscle boys on motor bikes / in black leather / come here now and show me how / in black leather / come do it again and we`ll be up in pain / in black leather / now that i`m old enough to ride what i like / i ride big heavy muscle boys and motor bikes / in black leather / now that i`m old enough to have what i like / i`ll have a filthy, greasy cock on a motor bike / in black leather / now that i`m old enough to ride what i like / i certainly don`t ride a motor bike / i ride leather / i ride leather» «Black Leather/Dead Sexy»12” // MEMOR 004 // Memory Boy Records // 2003.
