Tole-Doh! Rock

I’m heading for the not-at-all greener pastures of Toledo Ohio for the next few days. So this will be the last update of the week. I’m twice as depressed as you are about that fact, I can assure you. The stuff from tonight are all Record Store Day exclusives, most of them being from the Record Store Day 2009 Edition exclusive LP. Half of it was stuff that was already released or from upcoming releases, but there were a few choice rare/exclusive cuts, here they are.

Glasvegas – Daddy’s Gone (Live from KCRW)
I know very little about this band. I just know what my friend Lisa tells me, and according to her they are Jesus wrapped in awesome. Although I’ve learned never to trust her opinion when it comes to UK stuff, since she’s biased. Not a bad track though.

Raphael Saadiq – 100 Yard Dash (101 Yard Remix)
What I said about Glasvegas goes double here. Another good track, but I’m too lazy to Wiki the guy and see who the hell he is right now.

Franz Ferdinand – No You Girls (Vince Clarke Remix)
I’m seeing these guys Sunday in Detroit and I haven’t been so stocked to go to the Motor City Hellhole in years. I’ll give a full report of the awesomeness (and sure-to-be-annoying-Hipsters) when I return. This remix is by Vince Clarke of Depeche Mode/Yazoo/Erasure. Vince Clarke remixing a Franz Ferdinand song is the most gay thing that isn’t actually gay in the history of faux-gay ever.

Black Kids – Look At Me (When I Rock Wichoo) (Kid Gloves Remix)
This is probably the song I like the least on Partie Traumatic, good beat/groove on this remix though.

Pyschopathy Red
I Am A Mistake Of Nature
I Am A Mistake Of Nature (Reversed and Sped Up)
Slayer motherfucker!!! SLAYER!! These tracks weren’t from the Record Store Day exclusive vinyl, but from a special single that was also available on Record Store Day. It’s blood red, big surprise. The song Psychopathy Red is about Andrei Chikatilo, the Russian serial killer. Typical happy happy Slayer stuff. The b-side is a slowed down backwards message, which I presume is a translated statement made by Chikatilo. I’ve gone ahead and sped it up/reveresed it for you, while also provided the original version. Enjoy the murder and I’ll see you Monday.

    Raphael Saddiq was from the R&B group Toni Tone Tony (ive probably spelled the names wrongbut thats what google is for) Some marginal success and then they broke up, he made a group of sorts with I think a girl from Envogue called some Pearl. Last I heard.

    “Vince Clarke remixing a Franz Ferdinand song is the most gay thing that isn’t actually gay in the history of faux-gay ever” – LOL!

    Hope you’ll have a nice time in Franz Ferdinand’s concert. They’ve been here in Rio de Janeiro twice, and both times they were amazing.

    Thanks for sharing the remix!
    Cheers from Brazil

    Aw fuck. I am drunk. And never leave comments to scatalogical jerks. But in your case I’ll make an exception because your tart turn of phrase with those damn cool cuts keep me glued. Cheers.
