In case you haven’t noticed, I’ve been upping the number of posts I do here. I have a feeling my complete lack of posting had me loose a large portion of my audience. So if you’re still reading this stuff and digging the tunes let me know, and maybe shoot me some recommendations too!
White Stripes – You’ve Been Striped
I picked this up at The Leech Pit, and I know nothing about it. It’s a remix of ‘Seven Nation Army’ done up all techno and big-beat. For some reason the vinyl is labeled as ‘You’ve Been Striped.’ Also, it has a Trojan logo on it. I think it would’ve been awesome if it came in a GIANT condom wrapper, but alas that was not the case. Its the only track on the LP (it’s one-sided) and there is not copyright info on it at all. I’m at a total loss on this one.
The Yeah Yeah Yeahs – Mr. You’re On Fire
This is a B-side to at least two singles I have by them. It’s a pretty cool tune, but definitely B-side material.
Foo Fighters – FFL
This song is fucking ANGRY. I’ve always like The Foos when they go balls out heavy, but I think this is the heaviest they’ve ever been. It also has a quick reference to Queen’s ‘Fat Bottomed Girls’, which automatically makes it awesome. I’d love to hear them record a full album at this tempo. That might make people’s heads explode.
Korn – Here To Stay (Mindless Self Indulgence Remix)
I’m not a big Korn fan. I liked them for about 20 minutes in junior high, because it was required by law for junior high school students in the mid-90s to have at least one Korn or Offspring CD (I had both, I don’t know why.) Anyways, this is a remix of one of their better tunes, done by the amazing Mindless Self Indulgence. If you’ve never heard MSI and you like hardcore music you have to check them out, they are one of the most exciting bands in the scene. Their remix of this song basically turns it into an MSI song, which is probably why I like it so much.
