While my personal knowledge of MBV's body of work was (and in a way remains) extremely low, the Weatherall remix version of "Soon" marked my teenage years with repeated listens and stayed forever. There is just something amazingly hysterical about this particular version - that the original, despite its own charm, cannot match.

From the strange clatter-rotating intro and cowbell-fueled groove, the song develops into a crazy combination of dub and dreamy goth, thanks to the drilling white noise and nasty guitar cut-ups (courtesy Gang Of Four). The "here we go" and "ah-huh" samples might appear a bit too funky (read: over the top) within a My Bloody Valentine context, but without them you can tell, something would be just as missing.

Inbetween, the seducing female vocal bits are sequenced into this adorable skip-and-go repetition, like sirens captured in a glass bottle, in their hazy dreamlike state - the liquid ingredient that threatens to burst but instead complements the ear with its purple lure.

Makes me dare say, I'm an MBV fanatic, due to this single track.

Fantastic Weatherall workout of the MBV classic. It seems incredible that "Soon" could get more propulsive and sinuous, but there you go. Hats off and sabres rattled to Mr. Weatherall.

Another storming classic from the balearic days up there with Leftfield's Not Forgotten, great sample from Westbam Alarm Clock, awesome.
