Various - Life Beyond Mars - Bowie Covered

Usually I run a mile from this sort of album, but the lure of Bowie being touched up by the likes of Carl Craig and Joakim was too much to resist. This is a surprisingly good set of techno / electro / fucked-up covers of tracks by David Bowie, a few unlikely track choices as well.

Mind you, I reckon the biggest Bowie fan you could find wouldn't recognise Life On Mars - I think The Thing is taking the piss with that one...

WYV - I had that Pergon 12" but it met an untimely death unfortunately. Got some Hardfloor knocking about though...

Cheers for that - will do a proper post on the Pergon track at some point.
