Paul Hartnoll Feat. Robert Smith - Please (Remixes)

Belfast-aside, I never had much time for Orbital. Had them filed in with the Chemical Brothers and the Prodigy as dance music for people who don't like dance music, NME readers and such-like. Does that make me a dance-music snob? Guilty as charged, your honour.

When I heard the news of a Paul Hartnoll solo album I wasn't exactly chomping at the bit to hear it but when I heard THIS tune I soon changed my mind. My long-suffering girlfriend is a massive Cure fan as well, so the 7", 12" and CD singles were duly bought. All featured different mixes. The CD single ones can be bought so I'm not uploading them, and the 7" got left on a bus after a drunken DJ-ing gig so here are the three 12" mixes in all their glory. My pick of the bunch is The Whip's mix - they are one hell of a live band as well. Go see 'em if you get the chance.
