Martin Degville - Sputnik vs. Bowie (part I)

Martin Degville has a new download album out with cover versions of old David Bowie songs.

The result is very good and all songs are electronic rock'n'roll versions of the old classics with that special Sputnik touch. Lloyd Price has done the programming and he's done a great job. Considering how crappy Bowie's version of Sigue Sigue Sputnik's "Love Missile F1-11" sounded, then it's a pleasure to know that Sputnik has always had a great flair for cover versions of Bowie tracks and Degville still has that touch fully intact.

Initially I gave it a 4/6 rating, but having listened to the album many times now in full 320 kbps quality, I've decided to go for 5/6. I really like this EP album. I find it just as good as some of Trent Reznor's (Nine Inch Nails) revamped Bowie tracks.

There should be a part II of more Bowie tracks in the works and that is really not a bad idea judging from how well part I turned out.

Rebel rebel, you've torn your dress
Rebel rebel, your face is a mess
Rebel rebel, how could they know?
Hot tramp, I love you so!
