Grinderman to release a remix album
The recently deceased Grinderman, one of our favourite bands from the last few years have had a bunch of their filthy tunes remixed by a unholy crew of salivating yet very adept sonic miscreants. The result is a pretty astonishing piece of work.
‘Grinderman 2 RMX’ is a collection of remixes, reinterpretations & collaborations based on the songs contained in the band’s 2010 critically celebrated album ‘Grinderman 2’.
Out on Mute on 12th March, ‘Grinderman 2 RMX’ marks the first time all these tracks have been collected together. The album will be available in a deluxe double vinyl edition with CD insert, as well as CD and digital formats.
To mark the announcement Mute are exclusively streaming a previously-unreleased remix of ‘Bellringer Blues’ by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner on their Soundcloud page here:
‘Grinderman 2 RMX’s many outstanding tracks include “Super Heathen Child”Â – a collaborative version of Grinderman’s “Heathen Child”Â (MOJO Honours Song Of The Year 2011) which teams the band up with legendary guitarist Robert Fripp (King Crimson, David Bowie, Eno); an exclusive previously unreleased remix of “Bellringer Blues”Â by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner (about which Grinderman enthuse “It shits all over the original!”Â) a remix of “Mickey Mouse & the Goodbye Man”Â by producer/-musician Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age); “When My Baby Comes”Â by Cat’s Eyes (a duo consisting of Horrors’ front-man Faris Badwan and soprano Rachel Zeffira); “Evil”Â reinterpreted by Silver Alert (Grinderman’s Jim Sclavunos) and The National’s front man Matt Berninger; and Grinderman’s original demo version of “Evil”Â, “First Evil”Â.
