Gobby gets remixed! Three tracks from the weird wild and wonderful album “No Mercy Bad Poet” get put under the microscope and come out sounding tweaked and twisted, as if they needed any help in that area.
The remixes come from Earthly (Break World Records), Eric Copeland (DFA, L.I.E.S., 1/3 of Black Dice) and the enigmatic Dean Blunt (Hyperdub, Rough Trade, 1/2 of Hype Williams).
What each remixer does with the original is a revelation, Dean Blunt pushing vocals of "The Dishwasher" to the front of the mix, Eric Copeland reinforcing "Hometown” a subversive trap-pop song, into something more scuzzy and pounding. Earthly takes “Alcoholic" and transforms it into something else altogether, a wildly original piece of sample-soup with many surprises packed into its brief three and a half minutes.
