When the day that Thatcher dies comes, there is going to be one hell of a party in Scotland (and hopefully no state funeral in England). Mogwai’s most recent album Hardcore Will Never Die, But You Will contained the track ‘George Square Thatcher Death Party’ and now the entire album has been remixed by a fine troupe of remixers.
Mogwai are, of course, no strangers to remixing having done it both for other people (including Manic Street Preachers and Bloc Party) and releasing the Kicking A Dead Pig album, back in 1998, which was remixes of their debut Young Team.
The tracklisting is as follows:
George Square Thatcher Death Party (Justin K Broadrick Reshape)
Rano Pano (Klad Hest – Mogwai is My Dick RMX)
White Noise (EVP Mix by Cyclob)
How To Be A Werewolf (Xander Harris Remix)
Letters To The Metro (Zombi Remix)
Mexican Grand Prix (Reworked by RM Hubbert)
Rano Pano (Tim Hecker Remix)
San Pedro (The Soft Moon Remix)
Too Raging To Cheers (Umberto Remix)
La Mort Blanche (Robert Hampson Remix)
Like the generous folk they are, simply by signing up to the mailing list, you can get the opening track, the aforementioned ‘George Square Thatcher Death Party’ remixed by Justin K Broadrick for free. You’ll be glad you did so, but if you are too mean to do so, you can (for now) download it with this stream of the track:
