ESG - Moody (Remix)

ESG - Moody (Remix).

So, it turns out I'm not the only one who thinks of ESG and Liquid Liquid in the same frame of reference.

Although I've only really known a handful of either group's songs, it turns out these 99 Records labelmates have enough in common, sonically, to have been paired together in Volume 2 of The Perfect Beats series (thanks for that heads up, Andy Kellman).

Early on in their career, Bronx natives ESG also caught the eye of Factory Records magnate Tony Wilson, who brought the group over to Manchester to gig and record their first 3 song single with the legendary Martin Hannett.

You can hear the original version of "Moody", recorded with Hannett, here. Enjoy!
