This is what Sex Swing say about the IDLES remix:
"The remix is by Bowen from IDLES, who is one of the guitarists and main songwriters in the band. The guys are big fans of the band after seeing us play at the Exchange in Bristol last year. I think he’s done an amazing job, stripping the beat down until it’s almost synthetic sounding, then adding extra layers of noise. Reminds me a lot of Suicide in that respect."
And Mark Bowen from IDLES said:
“Sex Swing are one of my favourite bands. One of the things I like about them is that they combine harsh, caustic, anxiety inducing sounds with some sick head bopping grooves. You’re screaming on horror but tapping your feet. The new album has really distilled this idea down. With the remix I wanted to separate those two parts out and bring them to the fore. Hence the droney horror-show intro with the krauty-groovy second half, always striving to maintain that sense of unease, like its all going to fall apart at any moment.”
Sex Swing's latest album 'Type II' can be bought on CD and Ltd 'Cream/Grey Swirl' and 'Frosted Clear' LPs from here or from your local record shops:
