    I know you'd probably hate it, but I kinda dig Ed Rhone's remix of 'Clowns'. It's unofficial.

    Yes, I rated that on YouTube a while back. I like what he does with the vocals.


    He did an excellent job. 'Clowns' is considered an 'unremixable' song by many. Well, he proved them wrong. Notice that he didn't turn it into a disco dance clash. He still remained within the realms of Seventh Tree atmosphere, ambience, so to speak.


    For me there are no remixable songs. You'd think Lovely Head falls into the same category and both remixes/reworkings by Goldfrapp are excellent and blew me away when I first listened to them. I think we agree a song like Clowns doesn't make it easy to do an alternative version. Have to listen to this Clowns remix right away.

    Have to say though, don't have your hopes up. Ed Rhone's remix of 'Clowns' is certainly nowhere near the Miss World and Stare Mesto wonder. ;)

  • I listened to it and you're right. It's not as magic as the LH reworkings (can't call them remixes because there seem to be additional vocals) but it's nice. I wouldn't have minded something like this on a single.

    As much as I love b-sides, especially the Goldfrapp ones, I don't think we'll be treated with one (I'd be quite happy if we get a cover). This albums seems to have a much more completed concept compared to the other albums. There seems to be a story behind it while the others were more about a general feeling or vibe. At least this is my impression. There might be unfinished songs but like always we don't get to hear them. Hopefully I'm wrong and we get a single with a decent b-side.

  • Every era had at least one b-side. I'm sure Tales of Us will be no exception. :)

  • "All worst" except for Clowns and A&E.  Only joking.... "All worst" except for Clowns, A&E and the improved "live" version of Little Bird.  ;)

    As you can tell this was a dark/disappointing time for me, after the wonder that was Supernature.  I quite like the video to Caravan Girl (if you turn the sound down).  Well, its just too much like the theme tune to Jim'll Fix It (and thats not a good thing to be reminded of nowadays).

    Okay, here are the votes from the *insert Eurovision country name here* jury:

    1) Clowns
    2) A&E
    3) Road to Somewhere
    4) Little Bird (but only if I can have the live version.  Otherwise it gets relegated to above Happiness)
    5) Some People
    6) Monster Love
    7) Eat Yourself (but preferably only the 2nd half)
    8) Caravan Girl
    9) Happiness
    10) Cologne Cerrone Houdini


    Though we may deserve it, it will be worth it.

    But to be honest the whole album is sublime. Not a weak track on it, in my opinion.

    I had a king in a tenement castle, lately he's taken to painting the pastel walls brown. He's taken the curtains down. He's swept with the broom of contempt, and the rooms have an empty ring. He's cleaned with the tears of an actor who fears for the laughter's sting...
  • Along with SN their best album so choosing the best is difficult, but here goes:
