Genre-hopping Philadelphia electro post-grind trio Genghis Tron released Board Up The House a few months ago and have been touring since (in August they head out with the Faint and new Matador signing Jaguar Love). Instead of coming up for air, they’ve prepped five limited-edition vinyl-only remix LPs, which will be released by five different labels: Temporary Residence Ltd., GT member Mookie Singerman’s Lovepump, anticon, GT’s current home Relapse, and Crucial Blast. The re-mixers and knob-twiddlers include Black Moth Super Rainbow, DNTEL, Telefon Tel Aviv, Subtle, awesome Norwegian ex-black metaller Ulver, Odd Nosdam, Jesu’s Justin Broadrick, Tim Hecker, the Finnish crew Circle, and others … like Rob Crow. We have Crow’s rattling, dynamic remix of “Things Don’t Look Good,” which otherwise shows up on the first 12″. He’s definitely channeling his Goblin Cock.
Genghis Tron – “Things Don’t Look Good” (Rob Crow Remix) (MP3)
You can take a listen to “Things Don’t Look Good” in its original form at GT’s MySpace. This Crow’s appears on Temporary Residence’s installment with Steve Moore (Zombi), Jesu, and Eluvium, which is available for pre-order via Temporary Residence as of today. The series continues through 2008, so keep your ear to the ground. Each is limited to 1,000 colored vinyl copies and features a cover by California-based Board Up The House artist Jon Beasley.
