Back in May, Richard Fearless resurrected the Death In Vegas alias for Transmission, a throbbing journey through the veteran producer's EBM and dark-wave influences. Here, he looks to the band's past, serving up an expanded, double-disc "deluxe edition" of acclaimed 2003 set Scorpio Rising. Recorded at the height of Death In Vegas's "live band" era, the original album effortlessly joins the dots between Arab Strap style lo-fi rock looseness, post-Britpop dancefloor indie (Liam Gallacher and Paul Weller were amongst the high profile guests), and crackling psychedelia. The second disc boasts the full recording of a long-forgotten BBC session, plus notable period remixes from electroclash outfit Adult, dub type The Scientist, and The Polyphonic Spree.
