Greie Gut Fraktion "Wir bauen eine neue Stadt shortcut (Radio Mix)"
The killer combo of Gudrun Gut and AGF, known together as Greie Gut Fraktion, do a fascinating rework of Palais Schaumberg's 1981 classic, replacing angular bass and guitars with dubbed-out synths and high-frequency meanders. What's most interesting about the duo's work, though, is that they keep the original's death-disco beat almost intact, and the vocal phrasings are equally similar to those of the original. There is only one major departure from Thomas Fehlmann and Holger Hiller's masterwork, and that is the inclusion of bizarre and menacing English lyrics towards the piece's end. It is safe to say, though, that this alteration does not taint the end product, which is a lovely updating of what should be a better-known song.
