I should really just go to bed already

As I write this I have to leave in six and a half hours to catch a plane to go to Florida to go to Delunafest to see Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Joan Jett, The Joy Formidable and a few other bands I love. And I know that was a poorly constructed run on sentence but I’ve been writing like a madman all week and I think all my grammatical abilities are nearly shot.

But not shot enough to plug my fire sale! Please, if you’re interested in buying any of the records I have for sale let me know! I’ll be taking them off my site sometime next week and moving them to eBay. Don’t forget, all prices are negotiable! Also, I plan on selling some concert posters (mostly Pearl Jam) as well. So keep an eye on that if you’re interested. I might even try to sell my comic book statues. So if you REALLY like Spider-Man or Punisher, let me know.

But until then, hey, music.

Cutting Crew
(I Just) Died In Your Arms Tonight (Remix)
Me buying this 12″ single just proves that I will buy damn near any extended version of a pop song from my youth. Well, I guess that’s not true. You’re never going to see any 12″ singles from the Thompson Twins (“Hold Me Now” can fuck right off), but that’s really about it. Shit, if there’s an extended mix of The Outfield’s “You Love” I’ll probably get it at some point.

Also, this song is gross. Google it.

Siouxsie And The Banshees
Kiss Them For Me (Snapper Mix) 
Staring Back/Return 
I bought this single and then less than 24 hours later a friend of mine emailed me and asked if I had a remix of another Siouxsie song. That’s some Siouxsie symmetry right there. As great as “Kiss Them For Me” is, the real star of this 12″ is “Staring Back/Return,” a two-song suite that is powerful, beautiful and a must-hear for fans of Siouxsie. I can’t believe it was never released on a proper album by the group.

Frankie Goes To Hollywood
Welcome To The Pleasuredome (Brothers In Rhythm Rollercoaster Mix)
Welcome To The Pleasuredome (Elevatorman’s Non-Stop Top Floor Club Mix)
Welcome To The Pleasuredome (Elevatorman’s Deep Down Bass-ment Dub)
My quest to get every single Frankie Goes To Hollywood remix continues. I know it is an exercise in madness, because the discography of “Relax” remixes is greater than some bands complete musical output, but dammit I’m still going to try. I know own five different versions of that 12 inch, and three different 12 inch singles for this track. These remixes aren’t “original” mixes, instead they come from a 1993 re-issue, but I don’t care. I love me some Pleasuredome and I will take it anyway I can get it (I’m sure that’s a phrase that one person from Frankie Goes To Hollywood said at some point).

Both the Elevatorman remixes are decent, but if you want some bang for your unspent buck, check out the Brothers In Rhythm mix first. It is 16 minutes of hedonism-loving joy.

Sneaker Pimps
Spin Spin Sugar (Farley + Heller’s Fire Island Vocal Mix)
Spin Spin Sugar (Phlude’s Creeping Vine Mix)
Sneaker Pimps is a hideously horrendous name for a band. I posted these remixes a few years ago, but I totally forgot I own this single and I just bought it, and recorded it again this week. So hey, this recording sounds better probably, so you should just go ahead and download it even if you have the other one.

Also, if you want to buy this fucker, let me know. Because I’m stupid and I forget what I own apparently.

    What the hell is wrong with Thompson Twins ?
    If u don’t like them ur not a true fan of Synth Pop 4 a start !
    Cutting Crew-i just wish people would like the better Pop in the 80’s & not just stuff in backgrounds of films,Soft Rock(Girls Rock with bad gairdo’s that never looked good),or on countless compilations & remember the better first of the 80’s properly… >: S
