Moebius - Light My Fire

Yes, the Doors song… as covered in a new wave-meets-disco style by LA band Moebius in 1979, and now remixed for 2010 by French bod Mirwais (or not, as you see fit – an extended edit of the original is also included).

The vocal's a bit out of tune but this was something of a staple for Daniele Baldelli back in the day, apparently (and also a Top 10 hit in France). And now it's back to delight the cardigan-wearing Shoreditch hipsters. So there.

Out: This week

About: This is on a new label called Light Sounds Dark and has the catalogue number LSD001. Can't seem to find out much about 'em but they did that Sherm Sticks & Other Nasty Joints album last year, about which Kris Needs said in Record Collector, "Light Sounds Dark are obviously aiming for those demented souls craving something fresh, freakily danceable and previously nearly impossible to obtain." Which would seem to sum things up nicely. If you want to obtain this now, try Phonica.
