As ever with DIV, good attitude...
Following the batcave atmospherics of their last album (1999’s ‘Contino Sessions’), ‘Leather Girls’ and ‘Natja’ are the sound of [a]Death In Vegas[/a] cautiously re-emerging into the sunlight, shades firmly in place. A double A-side teaser for their forthcoming made-in-India epic ‘Scorpio Rising’, it finds London’s two coolest men (aka Richard Fearless and Tim Holmes) brilliantly welding together some of their traditional obsessions (Neu!, Spiritualized, acid house, [a]Death In Vegas[/a], Detroit techno) into spectacular new forms. ‘Leather Girls’ (good title) is the pick of the two tracks. A propulsive eight minute instrumental, it shudders to a halt halfway through in a squall of space-feedback, before promptly turning into Spiritualized‘s ‘Electric Mainline’. As ever with [a]Death In Vegas[/a], good attitude.
