Bison settles into Can’s legendary Innerspace Studio to flex their oddball lowslung muscle on this limited 7”. The result is ‘Mandy’, a seedy late night boogie in a private smoking club with JJ Cale and Mark Lanegan, on the set of a sci-fi B-Movie at the wrong end of an underpass... Check!Narrated with sultry vocals from a tempting hostess and the gentlemanly yet sinister host, the legendary Holger Czukay. A grinding, guttural bass, rolling groove and slinky guitar lines, all finessed with weird space-ocean noises.
The B-side has the Power Boy mix, a tougher beat, and a good dose of
organ and a slightly jauntier step. The results are of the kind when records become loved for their obscure oddity and otherwordliness. A track that doesn’t fit anywhere, but works everywhere.
