The Glamorous Strife

I have to give props to another blog out there, and since everyone knows what an egotistical self-centered prick I am then you know that really means something. The guys at Trash Menagerie have taken it upon themselves are hosting The Noise Crew’s drastic remix of Portishead’s amazing new album Third. The result is Third Floor and it’s shockingly good. Go check it.

Okay, enough about other people, let’s get to back to me and my impecible taste in music.

Lay All Your Love On Me (Justin Strauss Remix)
Lay All Your Love On Me (Restricted Mix)
Lay All Your Love On Me (Radio Hot Mix)
Lay All Your Love On Me (Phil Harding Metal Mega Mix)
Funky At 45
I am not an Abba fan. Never have been and unless I suffer some bizarre head trauma I highly doubt I ever will be. Strangely, I do like it when other artists cover their music. I own Erasure’s ABBAeqsue, and whenever I listen to it I have to immediately listen to Motorhead afterward to balance myself out. Anyways, I’ve always like Erasure’s take on this song, but after hearing Information Society’s take on it I’m going to have to say that theirs is even better. Now if they could just cover “Gimme Gimme Gimme (A Man After Midnight)” that would be amazing. In case you’re wondering, “Funky At 45” is the b-side.

Depeche Mode
Shake The Disease (Edit The Shake)
Master And Servant (Live)
Flexible (Pre-Deportation Mix)
Something To Do (Metalmix)
Enjoy The Silence (Ricki Tik Tik Mix)
Enjoy The Silence (Harmonium)
More from The Great Depeche Mode Purge of 2008. I hope to get the other 20 billion or so Depeche Mode tracks I have from singles and imports up here someday. The first four tracks are from the Shake The Disease 12” single and the last three are from the CD single of “Enjoy The Silence”. The Metalmix of “Something to Do” is one of my favorite Depeche Mode remixes, it’s not as good as the mindfucking wacky “The Dead Of Night (Electronicat Remix)” but it’s damn close.

The Glamorous Life (Club Edit)
The Glamorous Life Part II
I’ve been strangely infactuated with this song ever since I discovered The Fever’s remake (and remixes) on their b-side to “Ladyfingers.” I guess I’ve been getting more and more into Prince over the past few months, and I should just break down and buy some of his albums already, I don’t even own Purple Rain but I own the single to “7”. I have fucked up priorities. The Club Mix is an extended mix and “Part II” is a dub version/drum solo.

    I’d like to point out that it was Noise/Floor Crew who did the Portishead remixes and not Trash Menagerie. One of the members of NFC just happens to write for TM.

    You are correct sir, I have corrected my egregious error.
