EQ fave SIRPAUL takes the lead on a remake of a classic hit of the 90’s by Love and Rockets “So Alive”. Although, having lived it and spent a crazy amount of time wired into the sounds of the 80’s / 90’s, I’m not going to pretend, I hold my hands up to the fact that I am not versed or familiar to the original at all and never heard of Love and Rockets prior to this although, I was aware of Love and Rockets previous incarnation as Bauhaus, so took to Youtube to seek out the original.
The original of the time, took its core from a post punk darkness amidst a stinging slap of pioneering new wave freshness, the Simulover re-make, lavishes a burst of vibrant dance energy from Alex Lauterstein, whilst SIRPAUL steps up to deliver a consummately provocative vocal in the way that only SIRPAUL can, flanked by some further sassy ambience provided in backing from his talented Sister Cherylyn.
