Arthur Russell - The Sleeping Bag Sessions

Sleeping Bag was Arthur Russell’s record label, set up in 1981 with Will Socolov and Kurtis Mantronik. This compilation presents his work in various roles credited as Editor, Writer, Mixer, Remixer and Producer. The Opening track ‘5 Minutes’ by Bonzo Washington is included in two forms remixed by Russell, with stuttering tape edits spliced together to create an freaking wild Art Of Noise style sample collage with a mean electroboogie groove, while Felix’s ‘Tiger Stripes’ crediting Russell as writer under his Killer Whale alias is a real dancefloor classic. The 1984 joint ‘Radio Rhythm’ by Clandestine feat. Ned Sublette sounds like an ancient Primus track but in it’s remixed form by Russell takes on a proto technofunk vibe. The two versions of Indian Ocean’s ‘School Bell/Tree House’ are sublime, as well as the 12 minute, heavily reverb-treated Walter Gibbons mix of Dinosaur L’s ‘Go Bang!’. Strongly recommended! Also available on vinyl.
