Hawkwind "Valium Ten"
- Words: Jennifer Marston
JD Twitch is probably best known as a DJ and for being one-half of Glasgow's legendary Sunday night party Optimo (which he conducts alongside one JG Wilkes), an event that's seen everyone from Richie Hawtin to LCD Soundsystem grace its dancefloor. Twitch recently turned his attention towards another project though, releasing the MMM Betty! compilation under his Betty Botox moniker. Nine spliced-up, fairly obscure tracks from the last 30 years make up the compilation, which musically includes everything from kraut-rock to nu-disco. Here, Twitch has taken on British space-rock band Hawkwind. The original version of this track first saw light in 1982.
