Boomkat Product Review:
Yo La Tengo drop the political bomb on us. Fuelled by the world war misery threat and pre-post 9/11 lunacy they enetered the studio to recut one of Sun Ra's most political and downright killer tracks. 'Version 1' is the core Tengo unit with ace vocals 'we talkin' nuclear war - yeah, it's a motherf**ker', James McNew, Georgia Hubley and Ira Kaplan share vocal chanting alongside percussive breakdowns. 'Version 2' adds childrens vocals and extra sheets of sound. 'Version 3' is the real deal, untilising their friends from the downtown free jazz community like Daniel Carter, Susie Ibarra, Sabir Mateen - twisting vocals dark hole propulsion and fiery horn solo's. Mike Ladd rounds things off with a broken hip hop beat remix. Limited edition.
