To celebrate the upcoming reissue of British pop duo Rexy’s only album , Running Out of Time (originally released in 1981), the weird and wonderful Connan Mockasin has lent his talents to a cover of the title track.
Rexy had this to say:
“Running out of time is about surveillance and
paranoia, although written in a time long before
computer surveillance. We are delighted that
Connan covered this track, we’re big fans of his
and thrilled with the results.”
The LP will be released under London label Lucky Number, in-conjunction with new label URU, spearheaded by solo artist Samantha Urbani (of Friends). The LP has become a coveted find for fans of left-field pop, and through the rewards of its wry, forward-looking song craft, has been championed by the likes of current artists such as Ariel Pink, Joey Negro and Connan Mockasin.
And since I’m such a huge Connan Mockasin fan as well, here’s a bonus music video by my favorite directing duo Fleur and Manu.
