Now on Gomma: The solo project of Nancy Whang of LCD Soundsystem. After years as vocalist and keyboarder in James Murphy’s superband finally Nancy comes up with an own project: 4 cover versions of big songs from the 70ies. Produced by some big names of today’s electronic scene: Audiojack, Etienne de Crecy, Bonar Bradberry, Drop Out Orchestra and The Revenge.

The first single is a rework of Dennis Parker’s Like An Eagle. Audiojack transformed the Disco classic into a melancholic, space techno odyssey. The remix by Toy Tonics acts Black Loops is also a bomb!

Munk feat. James Murphy – Kick Out The Chairs! Remix (12″)

Release: 24 January 2005
Cat#: Gomma 051

Kick Out The Chairs! was the first single of MUNK’s debut album Aperitivo and came out in October 2004. It features the vocals of James Murphy and Nancy Whang of New York’s DFA. Here you get a very Old school funk version of the track – played by new Gomma band WHOMADEWHO from Kopenhagen.
On the flipside there is a dance edit of B.F., also a track from the album. Made by The Glimmers from Belgium – who already had a quite intensive connection to the Munk guys in the last years: they invited them several times to their partys in Ghent, djed them self a few times at partys in Munich and at the recent Gomma/Lodown party in Berlin. They liked the B.F. track and so Gomma asked them to do an own version.

Tracklist:
A1) Kick Out The Chairs! (WhoMadeWho Remix)
A2) Kick Out The Chairs! (Acapella)
B) B.F. (Glimmers Remix)
