And Then He Kissed Me


"And Then He Kissed Me (ft. Violet Skies)" by Stumbleine

Originally by The Crystals 

… one of the stand out tracks from the sessions is a cover of “And Then He Kissed Me”, the Phil Spector produced, girl-group classic from The Crystals. Here, on this re-imagining, Stumbleine and Violet Skies mix soulful R&B with sweet and dreamy electronic pop and shoegaze soundscapes to craft an ace of a cover.

David Bowie - Love Will Tear Us Apart (Joy Division cover)


David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by  Joy Division.

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”
