Little Boots covers Bronski Beat's absolute 1984 classic Smalltown Boy for Ministry of Sound's compilation Uncovered Vol. 4 with an awesome result. She managed to infuse her own unique style while still staying true to the original. The song itself is a social commentary addressing LGBT issues with homophobia and rejection within small communities in the UK in the early 80's. Jimmy Sommerville's tormented falsetto tells the story with a chiling effect. Boots darker tone paired with the warmth in her voice creates a new space for the song - she could be the safe harbour of love and acceptance all the Jimmys meet fleeing to the city and heading out into the neon nightlife even in 2012.
