The Running Man Cometh :: Utah Saints Return with Something Good

A 1992 single gets tech'd up and remixed for 2008.

Just when you thought Utah Saints went the way of the dodo, they turn out a smashing remix of their 1992 powerhouse single "Something Good". Like the original, "Something Good '08 (Van She Remix)" features that mind-drilling Kate Bush sample from "Cloudbusting". The music video features a hilarious video spoofing the origination of The Running Man dance made popular by MC Hammer. Those Welsh were way ahead of the game, it appears.

The single is gaining in popularity receiving heavy rotation on Radio 1 from Jo Whiley, Annie Mac, Chris Moyles, Scott Mills, and more. Zane Lowe and Pete Tong made it a 'Hottest Record In The World' and 'Essential New Tune' respectively. The single pack includes remixes from High Contrast, Ian Carey, Prok & Fitch, eSquire, and Bart B More.

About Utah Saints
Having sold over 2 million records to date, recorded with the likes of REM’s Michael Stipe, and performed with U2 and others on mega-stadium tours, Utah Saints remain one of the most trail-blazing outfits within electronic music. Following a self-imposed exile, Tim Garbutt and Jez Willis buried the Utah Saints name in the early Noughties (following unreleased albums and contract oblivion), vowing to return under that guise when the time was right. In the meantime they’ve produced and remixed under their Beatvandals moniker, DJed all over the world, and run the highly successful club night, Sugarbeat, in both England and Scotland.

Now ready to take the world by storm once more, Utah Saints are back in 2008, recording new material for a studio album and playing gigs across the UK, with a mix compilation also planned before the year is out.
