Listen: Hunters & Collectors - Talking To A Stranger (Avalanches Rework) [Edit]

The Avalanches gatecrash soundcloud with a pounding disco-punk remix of Hunters & Collectors' 1982 track Talking to a Stranger.

Lifted off a forthcoming tribute album, it's a significant departure from the Australian pub rock anthems normally associated with the band. Hunters & Collectors were once cooler than you'd think. It's little known that their name is actually a reference to a Can track, while two of their early albums were recorded at Can's Cologne studio with krautrock heavyweight producer Conny Plank.
