    cd/12": echo [ECS166]

  • the mogwai mix was due to feature amongst the b-sides of engineers 'home' single. however, this was pulled at the last minute, and downgraded from a full release to download-only, available via itunes (more details at the engineers website). it appears that some copies had already been pressed before the decision was taken to pull the record.

    there were a number of cd promos on ebay, but these are one track only and do not include the mogwai remix. copies of a five-track cd ep, which does include the remix, have proved more elusive.

    from the daily record:

    frontman kevin sherry revealed: "mogwai remixed the single and we're all big fans of theirs. they have reworked the song in a mellow, interesting fashion.

    "they have broken down the song and taken the basic elements of the melody. it's a slow and hypnotic mood they've put on it. you wouldn't know it was the same song unless you heard the lyrics.

    "they've put samples and wee elements on there that make it sound like adifferent composition but tremendous nonetheless. it sounds like a robot on benylin. it's an ego massage when bands who are your heroes reinterpret your stuff. i was at their first ever gig."
