Audika are granting the stunning 1986 track the full reissue it deserves later this month.
The urgent, ticking bomb of a song Let’s Go Swimming , Arthur Russell’s prescient 1986 track, is finally being given a full release later this month.
Audika will be releasing the single as a 12”, CD and download, and the release will include several mixes of the song, including the Gulf Stream Dub, Puppy Surf Dub and Coastal Dub, as well as an 11-minute keyboard funk version of Make 1,2 .
The video below was made for the track by Walter Gibbons and a relentless VHS pause button, and was recently unearthed by Arthur Russell’s partner Tom Lee. As you watch and listen, try to imagine that it’s 1986, and have your mind blown.
