Black Ships Ate the Sky I remix by JG Thirwell
Just when you thought David Tibet completed his transformation from industrial/goth icon to neo-folk troubadour, he drops an EP of club jammers. For those well-versed in electronic dance music, Black Ships won't supply any life-changing epiphanies. However, both featured remixers, the omnipresent Matmos and J.G. Thirlwell (aka Foetus), do some cool things. Thirlwell gets all minimal electro and synth industrial; his stuff grooves. Matmos, meanwhile, turns Current 93 into neo-Arthur Russell.
