Sendelica - Nite Flights 7"
Fruits de Mer Records (crustacean 76)
You never know what kind of stuff Sendelica will cover next... They've done at least Velvet Underground, Funkadelic, Donna Summer, David Bowie and Hawkwind before and now it was time for "Nite Flight" by The Walker Brothers! The track is from their 1978 album with the same name and this was during their art rock / disco phase so don't expect any 60s stuff. Sendelica of course makes the track much more spacy and heavier and the female vocals work also splendidly. This is actually a really good, groovy space rock version! On the B-side there is another, extended version of the track: "Nite Flights (Astralasia's Tabla Mix)" and you know that things will get more psychedelic here... I'm really happy that Marc from Astralasia is working with Fruits de Mer these days and I always enjoy his mixes as well as his original music of course. This instrumental mix is excellent and complements the vocal version on side A. There are two different colours of this 7" on purple and clear purple vinyl and both versions include three postcards with alternative cover designs that were not used. Superb!
