Slap and Tickle from the Squeeze tribute project!

Black Sugar Transmission: Spiky on the outside, Squeezy on the inside?

As fascinated as I was to hear about the massive 4-album Squeeze tribute projectSqueeze Revisited, I really had no idea what to expect from the resulting tracks.

After all, the participants are largely unknown artists (although Chris Holland is doing a song!), and they’re basically unpaid too. They are people from all over the world, recording the songs with whatever tools they have available to them, and sending the almost-finished product to Burning Sky Records to be mastered into a cohesive album collection. Kind of a pig in poke!

But as David mentioned recently in the comments to my original post, the first song is up now on the Squeeze Revisited MySpace page, and I have to say, I love it! Because I don’t want to make this too long, I will simply tell you three things I love about it:

– It still really sounds like Slap and Tickle, but it also feels fresh and new
– It has a dance beat, but there’s also something sensuous about the song – it’s sexy Slap and Tickle!
– You can hear every single word clearly

That’s all. Go listen for yourself; I think you might like it too!
