Grinderman are pleased to announce the release of Grinderman 2 RMX – 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 26 March 2012, 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.
Grinderman 2 RMX’s many outstanding tracks include “Super Heathen Child” – a collaborative version of Grinderman’s “Heathen Child” (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” by Yeah Yeah Yeahs’ guitarist Nick Zinner (about which Grinderman enthuse “It shits all over the original!”) a remix of “Mickey Mouse & the Goodbye Man” by producer/-musician Joshua Homme (Queens of the Stone Age); “When My Baby Comes” by Cat’s Eyes (a duo consisting of Horrors’ front-man Faris Badwan and soprano Rachel Zeffira); “Evil” reinterpreted by Silver Alert (Grinderman’s Jim Sclavunos) and The National’s front man Matt Berninger; and Grinderman’s original demo version of “Evil”, “First Evil”.
