Skeewiff – Misirlou / Amen Brother (7″) [Jalapeno Records JAL422V]
A – Misirlou
B – Amen Brother
Skeewiff have gained recognition for their canny ability to turn a retro track into a bona fide modern hit. And so they return with a limited 7” release featuring their outstanding version of the traditional song ‘Misirlou’. With its fusion of Eastern Mediterranean and surf rock influences, the memorable riff was made famous by Dick Dale, and it has become a cult classic thanks to the movie ‘Pulp Fiction’.
But it doesn’t end there, because the duo turn their attention on the flip to the stone-cold classic that is ‘Amen Brother’ by The Winstons! Known best for the honour of being the most sampled drum break ever, once again Skeewiff make it their own. This pairing represents the essence of Skeewiff’s distinct sound, reflecting their musical obsession to achieve perfection whilst having fun along the way.
