Murder On The Dancefloor
By Jon Corbett on February 10, 2011 in Music
Our favourite moody groovers Retriever are at it again with the release of the dark ‘Murder’ on the Berlin label Relish Recordings.
The new collaboration between Newcastle label Splash One Records and the German outfit marks a new era for the group, who will now present their Tyneside fuzz moves all over the chuffing globe.
For those of you who should know, Retriever are a three piece Rock & Roll group steeped in an unholy mix of 60’s garage, 70’s krautrock and 80’s post punk.
Their debut single ‘Murder’ (released late last year on Splash One) is a dark, driving slice of rhythmic howling menace.
The band layer cutting (femme fatale) vocals, spikey guitar and pounding bass over primitive drum machine beats to create a sound that will blow your grandma’s dentures out.
After falling in love with Murder, Swiss No-wave disco daddy Headman decided to approach Splash One about a remix collaboration release.
And so… ‘Murder Remixes’ comes with a fittingly eclectic assortment of mixes. Here’s one of the little beauties for you now. Enjoy.
