This weeks show was wriggling with remixes and exploding with edits, so it seems just and decent that we should wang one oop here for a mo. The edits were courtesy of Paris's supreme Dirty Soundsystem whose most edutaining blog, alanfinkielkrautrock, you can spot just over to the right amongst the fistfull of the whiffily endorsed sites. Their brand new 'Dirty Edits Volume 2' CD, and the scorching new Pilooski 12" taken from it, dropped in the mailbox today and I'm frankly surprised the K Road Post Office managed to contain such mightyness within its' walls, yes... that large!
On the remix tip, the new Skull Disco compilation is Shackleton and Appleblim's last release in the legacy, and the final chapter in the trials and tribulations of the appallingly treated, titular soundboy. Since the label kicked off in 1995 that soundboy has had his "nuts grounded up proper" (on the scorching 'Blood On My Hands' 12"), his bones getting repetitively "buried in the dirt" (on the Shackleton/Gatekeeper split 12" and the Shackleton/Appleblim 12" with the knee-knockingly moody 'Hamas Rule' ) before his "ashes were chopped up and snorted" on the devilish depth charge that is 'Vasan/You Bring Me Down'. The game was up, and the jig was juggered earlier this year, when the "soundboy's suicide note" was discovered, featuring Shackleton's darkest explorations yet (The Rope Tightens/The Branch Is Weak) on a fearsome four tracker.
Concluding the misery of the much maligned figure is the new compilation, 'Soundboy's Gravestone Gets Desecrated By Vandals', which is a double-disc, deathly delight with originals joined by remixes from a stellar cast of widescreen innovators. Every remix is worthy of the source material, but I've pulled out Rupture's brief ballistic makeover of In The Void because it's exquisitely odd, and not like much else out there (you can check Ruptures Mudd Up and Dutty Artz blogs on me bloglist just to your right too!) That's points and prizes in my book.
And their covers have been harmoniously unique and downright brilliant too!
(Buy) Enzedders should be able to get this local yokel style without too many worries in the dance.
Done already, buy the CD, you owe it to yourself.
