The Teardrop Explodes – Tiny Children (parjo01 re-edit)

 

Camden-20141122-00080

Yes, that Teardrop Explodes. They get a danceable remix from Parjo01.

The Teardrop Explodes were a seminal late 70s / early 80s indie (post punk) band featuring Julian Cope. Most people remember them for the brilliance of brass-blasting Reward. Although I recall buying Kilimanjaro (their debut LP), I don’t remember late single Tiny Children which was released in 1982 and narrowly missed the Top 40.

The original lacks the verve of The Teardrop Explodes’ more successful poppy moments. It’s a sombre, dreamy tune drifting past on soft keyboards and Cope’s lamenting vocals. Nary a guitar in sight. Parjo01’s remix gives it a more upbeat tone with the keyboards pitched higher up and the beats making the track groove. I really like the remix (more than the original TBH) but I assume purists will find it all too much.

And the original c/o TOGWT
