The Weathermen's latest release, the ultra rare white lable remix EP featuring mixes from Embedded by Jenny.exe, File not Found, This Fish Needs A Bike, Rotersand and Front 242's Daniel B, is now available to purchase from the now-DRM free iTunes.
Go buy it now. You know you want to. All the cool kids have got a copy...
Sadly it seems that indie vinyl merchants We Rock Like Crazy have had to shut up shop, mainly due to the lack of interest in indie vinyl (major label abuse is "in" this season. Bling bling. "I want my mp3" as Dire Straits would have sang if they'd released that song now and weren't elderly and stuff).
This means of course that the promised Weathermen Dear God remix 12" won't now see the light of day.
Or will it? Seemingly they have some white-labels in stock which they are happy to sell to the public.
Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
There has also been talk of digital releases so hopefully this great 12" will see public consumption in another form before long.
Keep watching the skies... but not while walking through traffic.
According to The Weathermen's new blog, PIAS are finally to release The Last Communique compilation at the start of the new year. We take back all the bad things about their mothers (though they'll be kept in storage in case they pull a sly one). Whether it'll be the same version of the album that The Weathermen have been letting people download from their website for the past few years or a re-jigger-ed version remains to be seen. However now those of you who are allergic to digital downloads will be able to buy a hard copy... plus all of you who felt great guilt for getting so much great music for free can redeem yourselves in the eyes of your god/goat/granny and buy a copy too.
...And so can the rest of you, because you know they deserve it.
Prior to that however will be the long awaited release of the Embedded remix EP, Dear God. It'll be out in December finally on We Rock Like Crazy on funky vinyl and shiny mp3. Possibly also on iTunes. Sure everything is nowadays...
Finally, the brand new The Weathermen album Embedded with The Weathermen is out now on Fire!Zone Records and Urgences Discs and is available from better record stores, including CDBaby. The album contains ten new songs of social commentary, wit and lunacy held together with funky electro beats, sinister industrial noises and smooth loin-stirring jazzy rhythms. The enhanced CD also contains, as a bonus, the original videos for The Weathermen 1980s classics: Poison! & Bang!.
The full tracklisting for the CD is :
