A Tried And Tested Method
The Longcut will release A Tried And Tested Method as their next single on October 2nd 2006, taken from the critically acclaimed debut album A Call And Response, The track comes with an essential remix from Brighton funksters The Go! Team, who add trademark quirky beats to The Longcut's original.
In fact it's a double header of a release as yes, there's more.. an exclusive, online download EP for the bargain price of Ã‚Â£1.50. Four tracks in all, including Idiot Check as an exclusive plus Vitamin C, Lonesome No More! and The Kiss Off from their debut album. Produced at Airtight Studios in Manchester with Giles Hatton from fellow Manchester legends The Earlies at the controls.
Built around Lee Gale's dreamy guitar picking, A Tried And Tested Method is one of the mellower moments on the band's high-octane album. Lush, refined and melodic, this is The Longcut at their hypnotic best - just listen for the bit where the lilting breakbeat gives way to a pulsing 4/4 stomp. Textured, layered and intense, it's a fine example of that marriage of the mathematical and the chaotic, the instinctual and the calculated,
the elements that make The Longcut's sound so visceral and exciting.
