Psychic tv, je t'aime!,
This review is from: The Singles Vol.1: Hex Sex (Audio CD)
This album contains all of Psychic TV's European hits including the famous Godstar (in the rare "Ugly" remix), their tribute to the Rolling Stones guitarist Brian Jones and a wonderful straight interpretation of the Beach Boys' Good Vibrations. Despite their uncompromising musical reputation, their singles are mostly accessible to mainstream rock fans. This version of Godstar sounds just like the Stone Roses and the energetic Good Vibrations will appeal to all. Note this truly bizarre rendition of the Serge Gainsbourg/Jane Birkin classic Je T'aime (Moi Non Plus), and the eerie Papal Breakdance featuring the voices of Pope John Paul the 2nd and John F. Kennedy, which is truly impressive with its nervous but lilting rhythms. Another impressive cover is their remake of P.F. Sloane's 1960s hit Eve Of Destruction. Other resounding tracks include Roman P, their tribute to Polanski, and Supermale. Psychic TV were truly one of the great experimental bands and Hex Sex is perhaps the best place to start investigating them.
