A topical and sympathetic remake of the 1983 Kraftwerk classic.
Gulp is the side project of Super Furry Animals bassist Guto Pryce and features Linset Leven on vocals and Glaswegian producer Julian Corrie, aka Miaoux Miaoux, joins in to lay some modern heavy beats over the gentler original.
In some respects, the differences emphasise the change in the nature of the race. In 1983, the machines ridden in the Tour looked like they'd come off the shelf of your local bike shop. Today, they're as exclusive as an affordable dwelling of adequate size in London, and priced accordingly. More hi-tech, more style, but ultimately recognisable.
While the race ends on Sunday, this track is released on the following Friday, July 31, on Elk Records. For more details, follow Gulp @gulpworld
