Two Lone Swordsmen - Sex Beat

Maybe I'm showing my ignorance, but I haven't heard of The Gun Club, who originally recorded Sex Beat. In this incarnation at least, the song is dark, electro-tinged rock, reminiscent of Iggy Pop or The Contino Sessions era Death In Vegas. It's unlikely to catch on in the same way as Aisha, but is still an excellent single.

However, an unnecessary remix (taking the track further in a growly electronic direction) and instrumentals aren't enough to justify a purchase if you already have From The Double Gone Chapel, the fine album from which this is lifted.
