Artists: LA ROUX
London’s synth-pop duo featuring singer
Elly Jackson and producer Ben Langmaid
Active: Since 2006 / 3 studio albums
La Roux is part – along Idles, Gary Numan, Warpaint and more – of
the double LP called The Problem Of Leisure. A tribute to Andy Gill,
the late genial guitarist of post-punk sensation Gang Of Four, who
passed away on 1st February last year – only 64 – due to multiple
organ failure and pneumonia. The records came out last June.
La Roux picked DAMAGED GOODS, GO4’s best-known track,
but not the easiest one to cover unless you turn it entirely upside
down like it happens here with a hip-shaking reggae-like vibe.
Damage some goods here…
The cover is now part of a new 6-track La Roux EP with no less
than 5 remixes of the song. You can stream it all on Spotify.
