A classic hit is reborn by Doctor & The Medics, "Spirit In The Sky" on Madman Records.
Wow, history is about to repeat it's self again with the rebirth, 29th anniversary remixes, of this classic hit by the Doctor & The Medics. Thanks to our friends at Sobel Promotions for getting us involved with turning this into a 21st Century hit. How about a little history lesson to bring you up to date with this group & their music?
The time was 1986. The New Romantic movement was in full swing. Androgyny was king (or queen.) Groups like Culture Club, Adam Ant, Eurythmics, and Duran Duran ruled the charts. Out of A UK underground club scene came another band, totally unique and formed to win a bet!! They were called Doctor and the Medics. The group adopted a look inspired by the UNCOOLEST elements of Psychedelia, Glam Rock and Punk. With music combining the COOLEST elements of those genres they had several indie chart hits.
On one fateful night, the leader of the Medics, the Reverend Clive Thomas Jackson, otherwise known as The Doctor, had a dream. That dream led to a studio session, and a cover of Norman Greenbaum - Spirit In The Sky and the rest is history. Hitting #1 around the world. Selling millions of copies and I know that you were playing it on your dance floor or dancing to it yourself.
Flash forward 29 years. Why 29 and not 30? Look at the Doctor. Do you think he does anything conventional? We bring back the song that you couldn't get out of your head in the 80's with the release of the 29th Anniversary Remixes. Featuring mixes from some of Sobel Promotions finest remixers - Parralox, Julian Marsh, Middlemen (Joel Dickinson & Jason Lanoux), Dirty Disco and Jose Jimenez. The single that hit around the world is poised to do it again with all of the old fans singing its lyrics and I am sure it will develop a brand new fan base.
