Get Well Soon – I Sold My Hands For Food So Please Feed Me

If you remember Verve from the 1st time around then you’ll more than likely know the inspiration behind Get Well Now’s Underworld cover. ‘Born Slippy’ was the trio’s biggest hit, undoubtedly helped on its way by the song’s inclusion on the ‘Trainspotting’ soundtrack. If any one tune encapsulated the lad culture and general mayhem of the mid-nineties it was this one. The Nuxx appendage refers to the version with Karl Hyde on vocals, which appeared as a b-side to the full instrumental ‘Born Slippy’ original. 12 years on and it has taken a pan European collective (which includes Dubliner Paul Kenny on drums) to recreate the majesty, albeit in a much more reserved manner. Led by the Berlin based Konstantin Gropper Get Well Soon recently released their debut album ‘Rest Now, Weary Head! You Will Get Well Soon’ to notable acclaim. It is one of 2008’s finest albums and in ‘I Sold My Hands For Food So Please Feed Me’ it possesses one of the year’s most exhilarating tunes. KD
