The Heat Is On

I first found this song on Agneta Faltskog’s (blond woman in Abba)  album “Wrap Your Arms Around Me” which was produced by Mike Chapman who also produced “Parallel Lines” by Blondie and wrote “Simply the Best”. I was then told by Olly that it was actually originally a song by Noosha Fox (who the girl out of Goldfrapp has based herself on) which is even better. Here are both versions to compare and contrast, as well as the two women. (Look out for Noosha’s knee based dancing, Agneta’s spectacular arrival in fur coat and silver volvo, and the inspired choice of auld herring pickler Svendersson on accordion)

Recording New Songs

September 1st, 2010 § 0 comments § permalink

Last night Randan Discotheque spent a couple of hours recording new material in the Wee Red with Alex Fenton of Fentek Audio. The definitive version of “My Dad’s Going to Afghanistan”, “Where Did You Come From”, “Lets Call it Dirt” and an as yet unnamed song, lets call it “Runrig Discotheque”. We’ve also got the masters back from Alex for “Heather the Weather” and “The Duke & His Orderly” – so a lot of fun things on the horizon – hopefully Hugo Phillipe Laurent de Verteuil will be back soon and he can add his wizard/urchin touch to the tracks.
