THE GRINDERMAN SINGLES (7)

I mentioned last time out about my unwillingness to get involved in the shenanigans around Record Store Day which means that Palaces of Montezuma is  the only physical copy of a Grinderman single not in the collection.

The facts coming up are that Evil was also part of Record Store Day 2011, but that’s not my recollection.  I certainly picked up a copy outside of RSD and I still smile at the idea of someone at Mute Records coming up with the idea that it be given the catalogue number of MUTE 666.

mp3 : Grinderman – Evil (album version)
mp3 : Grinderman – Evil (The ‘Michael Cliffe House’ Remix)
mp3 : Grinderman – First Evil
mp3 : Grinderman – Evil (‘Silver Alert’ Remix)

The Silver Alert remix has a guest vocal contribution from Matt Beringer of The National and it’s most likely the strangest thing he’s ever done.  All told, it’s a very bizarre and very unconventional 12″.

  1. It was indeed a RSD release and a very beautiful object came from it. Alas I don’t own a physical copy of it as RSD Shenanigans prices it out of contention in 24 hours but it’s a killer tune and the albums are beautifully packaged too.

  2. Sorry this is off-topic, but: any idea what’s happened to The Swede? His blog hasn’t been updated in ages, with no explanation or response to comments.
