Could the Cher/Nancy Sinatra classic “Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)” get any more haunting? After hearing noise musician Pharmakon’s cover, the answer is a resounding yes.
In honor of Record Store Day 2014, “Bang Bang” gets the power-electronics treatment courtesy of Brooklyn-based Pharmakon, aka Margaret Chardiet. Chardiet’s voice is absolutely arresting over Earth-shaking warped gunshots, giving the eerie ’60s slow-burner one of the darkest makeovers to date. The song will be available on Sacred Bones’ Record Store Day compilation Todo Muere Vol. 4.
