Bang bang bang on the wall... Ladyhawke again!
So last night I watched the film adaptation of the Luke Davies masterpiece Candy (starring the late Heath Ledger)... and not only did it make me wonder if that film was more responsible than any other for his demise... but it made me think more about how we totally overlook Australia constantly.
I mean shit... The Presets, Van She, Modular HQ... That should be enough to keep people focused on Australia for a while but if not we can throw Ladyhawke into the mix.
This is the third post Arcadia has dedicated in some way to Ladyhawke... and in some small way I think that means that she gets a full on stamp of approval. Maybe even induction into Arcadia family?!? We'll see. She's not British, but she's living in London from what I hear, and she is from Britain's prison island (it's just a joke, just a joke) and I think that's probably enough to at LEAST put her in the extended family lol.
This remix is the type of stomper (especially for people who need to stop playing "Standing In The Way Of Control") that will get you wild in a club even if it's the first time you've heard it.

Here's some press sheet info...
Released: 15th September 2008
Ladyhawke is the alter ego of New Zealander Pip Brown. After spending time in Sydney in various bands, she has upped sticks even further still, and now resides in London, where she wrote her forthcoming debut album (released 22nd September)
Other remixes on the release include The Shoes and Linus Loves
Having toured with We Are Scientists and Soulwax this year, Ladyhawke has also appeared at Glastonbury and will be playing Bestival on the Isle of Wight.
Nice stuff yeah? That Linus Loves remix is a fucking banger, I bet ya! Hope you enjoy. In the meantime... we've got ummmm... well more ads yeah? Quite a few lol! I'm trying to figure out how to make this less intrusive and more content oriented so... we'll see what happens. In the meantime bare with me... I haven't made shit doing this blog and frankly I'd be nice to so I could post more.
P.S. On a totally unrelated note, are we ever going to see a Late Of the Pier album?
