All Remixed Up, Don't Know What To Do
Firstly, please accept my most heartfelt apologies for making reference to 311 in the above title. It's the first thing that popped into my head and I'm too lazy to think of something better. Anyway, I just recieved (5 days ago) this official press release from nothing records about the upcoming NIN remix record and I thought I'd pass it along, since you all probably care.
Now, because I'm just Mr. Big Shot With Close Connections To Nothing Records, I've obtained these exclusive scans of the new remix album (pay no attention to the ones at nin.com, they're just a joke), as well as some other info I dug up.
As it turns out, it's not really an EP, since it has 18 damn songs on it. But let's just overlook that. I know you're thinking, "Wow, there's a lot of 'Version's on there!" But there's no need to be worried or frightened. The songs are your friends. They are not there to hurt you. Well, except for Track 10... I wouldn't mess with that one.
Here's the rundown on the various "Starfuckers Inc" remixes:
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [4:34] - Remixed by Charlie Clouser and Trent Reznor at Nothing Studios, New Orleans.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [5:03] - Reconstructed by Keith Hillebrandt at Nothing Studios, New Orleans.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [28:43] - Looped over a boring, repetitive beat by Porter Ricks.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [0:48] - Hummed by Trent Reznor in the shower at Nothing Studios, New Orleans.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [7:14] - Remixed by Meathead in Meathead's Basement.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [4:58] - The original version of Starfuckers Inc. played backwards by Trent Reznor while bored at Nothing Studios, New Orleans.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [2:29] - The original version of Starfuckers Inc. sped up 2x by Rob Sheridan before Trent Reznor came in and smacked him for touching his equipment at Nothing Studios, New Orleans.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) [1:03] - Partial cover by Pearl Jam during one of Eddie Vedder's frequent lapses of coherence.
Starfuckers Inc. (version) (version) [0:11] - Sound clip of Carson Daly talking about "Starsuckers" on MTV while trying to sound like he knows anything about NIN.
Also, this record features NIN's long-awaited cover of the Gary Numan song "Metal" (hint: the 'leaked' track on Napster isn't real, dumb ass). It also featuers the not-so-long-awaited cover of "Like A Virgin" by Madonna.
If you're not excited already, get excited, damn it! This fabulous new CD hits stores in October. If you don't go out and buy it, I will personally track you down and introduce you to a whole new world of pain.
