TUNE Factory Acts - Are You the Singer?
Taken from Are You the Singer? extended single release for Cassette Store Day 13 Oct 2018. Featuring a 15m44s full track and a remix of Leave the World to Us.
"With classic 808 epoch defining sounds in the nexus of rhythms and basslines where Detroit gay clubs met the back-street bacchanal of Manchester, the track is given a sprinkling of feminist finesse, an attitude reminiscent of The Slits and the raw, repetitive beats of 20 Jazz Funk Greats era Throbbing Gristle.
With its cutups and spoken word samples of phrases and statements that female musicians have had to endure since the day Sister Rosetta Tharpe picked up a guitar – and probably before - Are You the Singer? takes a righteous and rightful source of female anger from the streets to the dancefloor in blistering fashion.
