Friendly Fires – Strangelove
09 Sep 10
Friendly Fires!? Covering Depeche Mode!? FOR GUCCI!? Whodathought that would be a good idea!?…(Except from every organism under the sun…yeah even plants…). In a move that sees the St Albarns trio cement their place as the funkiest, hip gyrating remixers this side of a Bootsy Collins record, (further evidence here bro) and as proper fully fledged popstars, the threesome have taken the Mode’s Strangelove, and made it into something digestible for an audience who like watching perfume adverts, dressed as odd black and white art house films. Flappy ”dad at a wedding” dance moves, cowbell and chinos all round!
