Klaxons Bug Out!
- Words: Fred Miketa
Where do London’s Klaxons find their influences? The Chemical Brothers? Wu Tang Clan? Well, guess no more. For the band’s next release, bassist Jamie Reynolds has teamed up with New State Records to collect two discs of Klaxons’ favorite tracks. Bugged Out (a.k.a. Disc One) is comprised of varied club-friendly cuts and Bugged In (a.k.a. Disc Two) is filled with some of the outfit’s most cherished sources of inspiration. Featuring everyone from Luke Vibert and Pedro Campos to Liars and Roy Orbison, these 27 tracks may freak out even the most fluorescent-clad fans.
All this comes packaged with an unreleased remix of Klaxons’ “It’s Not Over Yet” by Brodinski, which features vocal samples from one Aleister Crowley (Ooooh, spooky). If listening to the trio’s favorite songs doesn’t seem that interesting, you may want to check Klaxons on yet another tour rampage, sharing the stage with the likes of Justice, Apes, and Simian Mobile Disco.
A Bugged Out Mix by Klaxons is out now on New State.
