KATAKANA EDITS: Vol. 13 & 14 (2013)

The Katakana Edits label returns with Vol. 14 from Timewrap. Cue a bit of skankin deep disco boogie plus a dubby edit of Duran Duran’s eighties breakthrough hit Girls On Film entitled Girls On Drugs. The original uncensored video for Girls On Film contains alarming (especially for then) images of female models rubbing themselves off on greased poles during a pillow fight, female models snogging, female models mud-wrestling semi-naked, female models having their bare nipples teased with ice cubes, female models in see-through plastic underwear and at least one full muff shot. And I should know, I’ve just watched it in the interests of journalistic integrity. The only thing more alarming than this is the selection of New Romantic couture sported by the band who preside over the whole thing. And Simon Le Bon’s ‘dance’ moves. No doubt the whole thing was fuelled by industrial amounts of cocaine. Girls and indeed men, on drugs. Someone else who’s also recently sashayed down the Katakana catwalk is Morlack and for the second time this year no less. In Vol. 13, he parades no fewer than six booty edit thingies in a collection which features jungle, boogie-funk, disco, and hip-hop. Because variety never goes out of style…
