I did it! I updated my blog for five days a week every week for a whole month! Now I can finally go back to barely updating this thing.
Just kidding, don’t worry. Part of the reason for that exercise was for me to finally motivate my lazy ass into writing a bit about music again. I can’t believe I’ve in Japan for eight months now, and I just now am finally getting back into the groove of writing on a somewhat consistent basis. To be perfectly honest, a lot of that has less to do with me moving halfway across the world, and more to do with me having a full-time leave-my-house office job for the first time in eight years or so. That was way more a culture shock than moving to a foreign land let me tell you.
So my plan, barring another damn illness or mental breakdown, is to go back to my regular schedule of updating this site at least twice a week, and Mostly-Retro, the review site with no purpose nor readers (sob) at least once a week. Let’s see if that sticks.
Now lets get fucked up and go to a rave.
Gravity’s Rainbow (Van She Remix)
Gravity’s Rainbow (Nightmoves Remix)
Gravity’s Rainbow (To My Boy Remix)
Ladies and gentlemen, I present to you the second through fourth greatest remixes of “Gravity’s Rainbow.” In case you were wondering, the greatest remix of this tune is the Soulwax Remix, which I am not including in tonight’s post because you can buy it on just about every digital music marketplace. And you fucking should buy it. That remix does shit that I’ve never heard any other remix do to a song. If I could frame that remix I would.
These are great too, but they’re the Gregg Allman to the Duane Allman of the Soulwax remix.
Oh, by the way, I reviewed that new Allman Brothers release over at Mostly-Retro, so go check that out.
Yes, I just segued a blog post about the Klaxons into a plug for an Allman Brothers review. I’m a great writer.
Come Together (Richard Fearless Mix)
Come Together (Two Lone Swordsmen Mix)
I remember one time seeing an album by Spiritualized forerunner Spacemen 3 entitled Taking Drugs To Make Music To Take Drugs To. I feel that the sentiment of that title has continued to reverberate through all the reverb-filled music that Jason Pierce (former Spacemen 3 frontman and the man behind Spiritualized) has made ever since. The original version of “Come Together” is a fabulously trippy tune, and these remixes keep the acid freakout going, with distortion effects and random audio sample abound. Be careful with these ones, the might trigger a bad trip big time.
OH GOD THE ZOMBIE ELEPHANTS ARE BACK.
