Who Sung It First? “Little Black Angel”


Ladytron have amassed a decade long catalog of influential and catchy tunes. To celebrate the decade, they have just released a retrospective of many of their hits (but why oh why was She Took Him To A Movie not included and Evil only on the deluxe version?). Two new tracks, Ace of Hz, which was recently released and this track, Little Black Angel appear on the album. The song is super catchy and is actually a cover of Industrial innovators, Death In June, who first recorded it in 1992. To me, their version reminds me of Some Velvet Morning by Lee Hazlewood and Nancy Sinatra. Which version do you prefer?
