Eugene Francis Jr 'Electric Hobo' Remix!
Eugene Francis Jr was on the site a while ago for a REALLY catchy single "Poor Me" and I figured it was time we checked out what he was up to again. Normally his "sound" isn't up my alley but I really enjoyed his songs...
I got my hands on a nice *cough* 'new rave' (didn't I say I wasn't going to use that phrase anymore?) mix of his new single... so I'm hoping you iPod folks and the DJ kids get into this one... 'HOBO OCCUPATION' (aka 'Electric Hobo')... this will actually be perfect for fans of Bright Eyes "Digital Ash In A Digital Urn" album...

Those are pretty big names so I suspect big things in Mr. Francis' future. Once again glad to get in on ground level with his career so that a year from now when he's blown up I can still get an interview lol... Here's the video for "Poor Me"...
Hope you enjoyed... there's probably another post coming today about Roses Kings and Castles, a project from Babyshambles' Adam Ficek, for which I have some dope remixes. Stay tuned...
