VARIOUS ARTISTS - Seventies Mutation CD

A satirical take on pop and rock legends of the much maligned decade. From the karaoke music stylings of xper.xr to French art music outlaw Costes' synthetic screaming weirdness to the claustrophobic sounds of Scatter My Atoms to the disco grindcore of His Hemorrhoids Are Gone, it's none of the original artists playing none of your favorite songs.

WFMU says: " Well, if you enjoyed that mutant version of "Boys of Summer" that Puff Tube put out years ago, this is for you. French performance freak Costes does Lennon's "I Found Out", and you also get completely messed up versions of "Black Magic Woman" (by Xpr.xr), "Have You Never Been Mellow" (Phigg-Newtons), "She's Always a Woman" (Slippery Fingers), "Le Freak" (His Hemmorhoids Are Gone) and many more gems not only covered but deconstructed into piles of smoldering electronic goo."
