Dark and almost early Bauhaus-esque is this reworking by Caribou. Caribou grabs Virgo Four’s “It’s a Crime” and takes it to a darker and goth like cavern of sound.
Background on Virgo Four’s Limited Box Set: Resurrection
Resurrection is the follow up to the reissue of Virgo (Four)’s S/T album, which was released by Rush Hour in 2010. This album is a collection of unreleased tracks that were produced over a 6 year period between 1984 and 1990 in various home studios around Chicago. The tracks were selected from 100’s of 4-track tapes that had been untouched and unreleased all these years due to local record business politics and disinterest. These demo recordings have been restored and mastered for release. The CD release holds 15 tracks, while the limited edition vinyl box set contains 15 tracks, totalling a cool 30 tracks. Resurrection really shows the the rich, diverse and unique quality of Virgo Four, which leaves you wondering what impact they would have made on the (Chicago) house scene if they would have gotten released back in the day. For now we are really glad these gems have been unearthed and are proud to give Virgo Four the spotlight they so much deserve.
