I put a spell on you

Ride on time. Ride on time. Techno, techno, bloody techno, darling.

"The Spell" is the new and much talked bout, 90s Italo house inspired single from Alphabeat, the zany Danes that brought us fabulous, pop gems like "Fascination", "10,000 Nights" and "Boyfriend", the Pete Hammond remix of which singlehandedly brought back the amyl nitrate nights of the late 80s and early 90s. I guess you can tell we liked those jammy jams quite a lot.

The new single is out on October 19 and should be followed by their sophomore longplayer shortly thereafter.

Speaking of the Pete Hammond remix of "Boyfriend"...

Damn! This mix should have been released on the CD single. Missed opportunities abound in the music "biz". Don't they, kittens?

And some industrious student of popular music has done a super mash up of "Fascination" with "Blitzkrieg Bop" by New York City, punk pioneers, Ramones.

  1. Aahhhh. Pete Hammond and his 'version excursions'! LOL. I'm such a sucker for (non-US) bubble gum pop. This band is FUN!
