Standing in the Way of Control

Single Review

Surely everyone's already heard this haven't they? You reading this, you've already heard it millions of times haven't you? So why re-release it? Well, it was played round-the-clock on Channel 4 over trailers for their "edgy" yoof show Skins, and the great unwashed finally cottoned on to what a great song it really is.

Yes, overexposure have tainted it quite considerably, but there is something delightfully incorrigible in Beth Ditto's primal howl and the raw punk thrash of her skeletal band, that suggests that this is a truly special track that will be seen as a classic in years to come.

The Soulwax mix from the Skins advert is included here, which would sound remarkably fresh if it didn't conjure up images of obnoxious little twits talking about doing it and stuff. Ugh.
