“All these things…in me…”

I meant to put these together in November of last year when I returned from London, having snapped up the five limited edition 12″ singles of remixed tracks from the RiverRun series of downloads, but I’m glad I waited.

The first mix contains six songs most people haven’t heard: Peggy Sussed, Vanilla Monkey, JAL To Tokyo, and Play Pig, all of which come from those singles, along with Crocodile and Beautiful Burnout which appear on the forthcoming album Oblivion With Bells.

The second mix contains two live versions that were made available by the band in 2003, and a little piece of history: Doot Doot. At the dawn of the 80’s Karl Hyde and Rick Smith came out of Wales with a 5-piece nu-romantic group that had an unpronounceable squiggle for a name, later revealed as Freur. I remember seeing the video for Doot Doot on MTV, and I even ended up with a copy of the album. I don’t think anyone at the time could have predicted they’d go on to become critically and commercially loved pioneers in electronic/dance music, soundtracks, film/video, and print media.
