Cold Cave – Life Magazine (An Optimo (Espacio) Flexi-Pop Mix)

Unreleased wee gem from Cold Cave via FACT Magazine.

I'm off to see this lot at the Captain's Rest in Glasgow tomorrow night and cannae fuckin wait. Haven't seen them before, but will soon get the chance again at the Primavera Festival in a few weeks. This superb remix won't be on any of the formats of the new single, and is only up on FACT for a week, so here's a perma-link for anyone who missed it.

For the uninitiated, Pitchfork said that their sound "weaves incomprehensibly distorted vocals with bits of synthetic feedback", but some songs "also come bearing serious hooks." What a load of wank, eh?

Anyway, if you're in the area you could do a lot worse than getting the fuck down tomorrow...

Only just discovered your rather fine blog.
Went to see Cold Cave too and was blown away. Ian Curtis meets LCD via The Fall.
With you re. Factory Floor too, remarkable.
BTW what's with the Captains Rest crowd. With a few honourable exceptions they just stand rigid and stare... they make for a good photo mind.
