Extra Life – “Head Shrinker (Tyondai Braxton Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)

In 2001, Extra Life leader Charlie Looker and Tyondai Braxton played in a band together (with Period’s Mike Pride) called Antenna Terra. After that, Looker studied music at Wesleyan with Tyondai’s father Anthony. The ongoing association/collaboration continues with Tyondai’s insectoid scratch-implosion of Made Flesh’s “Head Shrinker,” giving the BTW their first pair of slippery dancing shoes. The remake appears on Splayed Flesh, an EP that also collects remixes by Justin K Broadrick (aka Jesu), JG Thirlwell (aka Foetus), and Caley Monahon-Ward (aka collaborator/Extra Life violinist). Here’s Tyondai.
