Scissor Sisters - Inviisible Light vs Frankie Goes To Hollywood - Welcome To The Pleasuredome - various mixes.

Our hero Captain Obvious travels to Ancient Greece and Babylon in search of Dionysus, Apollo, Silenus and Bacchus for a Bacchanal and to Xanadu where did Kublai Khan a pleasure dome erect (trans: a right royal knees up).

OK it’s not as pretentious as it sounds, but then again not many bootlegs contain quotations from Nietzsche’s Birth of Tragedy, Coleridge’s Kubla Khan, Dionysus, Babylon, Geoffrey Palmer AND Ian McKellen? Actually it’s a party record containing the Scissor Sisters track ‘Invisible Light’ which is obviously a rip of Frankie Goes to Hollywood’s ‘Welcome to the Pleasuredome’ – even down to the speaky bit. So I’ve reunited them via the Thomas Shumacher and Fruitness mixes of FGTH, and the Siriusmo and original mixes of Invisible Light in two parts.

This is my homage to the ZTT production team and their long extended DJ mixes I grew up with, usually including quotations (hence the Birth of Tragedy from the Fruitness mix – but both songs mention Dionysus/Bacchus too interestingly) so this at 7:33 is the Dionysus vs Apollo full length DJ mix.

If you download the full album you *might* just get the shorter mix as well!
