|More Arthur Russell ...

At some point apparently they repressed the "Go Bang #5/Clean on Your Bean #1" record on Sleeping|
Bag, and it came in the mail today.
Both of these tracks are Francois Kevorkian remix/edits of Arthur Russell experimental disco
tracks. If you like Theo Parrish or Moodyman, this is the white, 80s downtown NY version. There's
something so home-made and offhand about these tracks, and the way that the material mutated
and was resampled over and over again. The girl singing "Bango Bango" shows up in the Todd Terry track "Bango" which is yet another remix of this same basic material.
The original Go Bang, though has great fusion-y electric piano and trombone, and trumpet and it manages to build up to its own unique lateral-thinking climax.
