The first thought that runs through your
head with this maxi-cd is; The 1978 classic "Being Boiled" from the Human
League; How often has that already been misused?
a band have to do a interpretation of this
track, before they receive
the permission to publish their own
stuff [it was also the first single
of HUMAN LEAGUE,
only it was their own..]
put that aside. What
us this time? With the door into the house falling:
my eyes the best cover of this piece was
the orginal, that really blew the house down,
until now that is!
The class of this new interpretation lies
original, solely a couple breaks
incorporated and let
somewhat more in time.
That never brings in the original power
of the track
and that otherwise depressing
Sound becomes yet less boring.. Next to that *jolly manner* "original" [like
self-critically *g*] named version,
the Silberling include the
shorten the "Zombie nations RMX", that
offers more BPM,
isn't as remarkable.
Exited! A. F. A. may now hit us
with their own

The Human League are enjoying
something of a resurgence at the moment with all sorts mashing up their
tracks. Mark Hawkins has put ‘Sound of the Crowd’ through the mincer and
Richard X has already bootlegged ‘Being Boiled’. AFA go for a straight
cover, a very minimal dub styled version, another similar romp and my
favourite, the Richard Anderson mix which is a slower and dirtier groove
altogether. There is a saying if it ain’t broke it don't need fixing and
this doesn't really do enough to dispel the myth, although one version is
worth a listen.

Covers of Human League tracks.
All very retro clash sounding a mix for the floor and a couple of more
experimental versions but the mix for me is the very Leftfield sounding
Richard D Anderson mix, slow paced heavy electronic dub.
