Hello This Is Gorgeous, Does Anybody Out There Read Me?
More from Primal Scream- this is what I was actually looking for when I got distracted by Echo Dek. Kill All Hippies was the opener to 2000's war on vowels XTRMNTR album. It was an album on heavy rotation (as they used to say) round here. I bought the vinyl for home listening and a copy on cassette for the car. Kill All Hippies samples the voice of Linda Manz (from Dennis Hopper's 1980 film Out Of The Blue) and eventually winds itself up, kicking into a distorted riff and a drum loop, a filthy bassline from Mani and some heavily processed electronics. Bobby consoles himself with a falsetto explanation of art v commerce.
Two Lone Swordsmen chipped in with a couple of remixes, pioneering the use of the hashtag as well as putting even more numbed out, dislocated electronic funk into proceedings than the original track had.
