Puff Rider (featuring Dave Cloud)
Single Released: 17 Mar 2008
The Fire records/Various Production partnership in dark mash-up continues with this (relatively) more upbeat dancefloor-ready 7". Another Bonesy classic image, this time a suitably playful and disturbing cover. Sonically, it's nasty rather than dark; it's a stormer of electro-popping stomp warped by Dave Cloud's characteristic breathy and gravelly vocals and attitude. The lo-fi original on side B (from last year's Napolean Of Temperance) is a distorted disco classic karaoked by a loose-screw genius who seems to be in some sort of party/war zone.
"Bitchin' boogie of the highest calibre."
