Product description

Amazon.co.uk

Double Hipness is a confusion of delights. Twenty-five rare and unreleased tracks which neatly fill in most of the gaps on the Associates' mercurial, tempestuous career. There are tracks from MacKenzie and Rankine's late 1970's cabaret roots, and early demos which owed a fair amount to both Station To Station-era Bowie and the collected poise of The Sparks. (Watch out for the imaginary dance craze "Do The Call Girl".) There are six tracks from the ill-fated 1993 reunion, even featuring a camp, glitter stomp riposte to The Smiths' own Associates tribute song "William it was Really Nothing". There are dark demos of "Party Fears Two" and "Club Country". There are out-takes from the first album The Affectionate Punch, recorded after the pair were given endless hours of studio time. There's the Bacharach tribute, "Saline Drips". There's the emotionally heightened take on David Bowie's "Boys Keep Swinging". There's the rather bewildering and perverted title track... and so on. Perfect for both the casual observer and obsessive fan--who probably will have many of these on crackly bootleg already. --Jerry Thackray
