||1.||"Funky Nassau" (Danny Krivit re-edit)|
The wait for some straight up new Orgone heaviness has ended with this 12". Adding to the occasion is a bonafide legend. Danny Krivit checked Orgone's "Nassau" and heard a groove he simply had to take on in his immitable style. His beast of a re-edit takes on a whole side of this new12" and, perhaps predictably, warrants just that. The other side is pure elbows-up feet moving territory. "Hambone" doesn't stop surprising - an uptempo masterpiece that builds and builds, and drops...and builds again. The band live as you get, with their heads down for nearly 8 minutes, giving us something for the floor - funk, disco, live house!? - call it what you will. Then there is "Sophisticated Honky" - classic Orgone - roughed up funk guitar leading this stomper whilst huge horns battle for their place amidst the boom bap. Be sure to behold the percussive breaks on both these original Orgone killers.
