Addicted To Drugs

Album: Off With Their Heads (2008)
  • Kaiser Chief bassist Simon Rix told Drowned in Sound about this twist on Robert Palmer: "It is a first because it's the first time we've done two different versions of a song in the studio. There's one melancholy one, which we worked on for a while. It had a couple of bits we really liked but one day we thought we should have another go at it because the combination of the title, the sentiment and the downbeat-ness made it sound judgmental, something we always try to avoid. The second version started with a beat and loads of percussion, including Mark (Ronson, co-producer) playing the a-go-go bell."
