Bot'ox / Goodbye Fantasy Ep
Goodbye Fantasy is sung by Mark Kerr who was already featured in previous album “Babylon by Car” and can be seen on stage at Bot’Ox’ live performances as the lead vocalist and a guitarist. In terms of format and influences, Goodbye Fantasy is the track from the album that fits most with pop music standards. Unlike other songs steeped in a gloomy or nervous feeling, this one focuses in its melodic strength and its condensed dynamic. No euphoria to be expected though: lyrics are all about giving up with one’s illusions.
Four remixes are included in the release. Belfast man Phil Kieran delivers a club version in line with his crossover project “Le Carousel”. Moscoman, whose first EP was released by I’m a Cliché, provides a remix filled with emotion. Roman Azzaro’s remix, under his Rouge Mécanique moniker, is all about funk with rock guitars tailored for techno clubs. And finally, In Flagranti, whose recent EP on Phantasy was acclaimed, deliver a dub high on ketamine.
