CHICKEN SWITCH - One Month to Go

On September 29, 2009 my all-time favorite band - The Melvins - will be releasing a remix album entitled Chicken Switch. Remixes have been around for decades but are generally just an extended version of a popular song chopped and edited by other musicians and DJs. The Melvins however are doing something entirely different. They are presenting their remixers with an entire album to play with. Here's the lowdown from the band's website:

The Melvins will release Chicken Switch, the long rumored(since 2003) remix cd with a twist, on Sept. 29 via Ipecac Recordings. Unlike usual remix cds where the remixer is given a single track to work with, for Chicken Switch each remixer was given a full album to work with and pull from to create their track (and in some cases, more than one full album was used as source material). The song names were also newly selected by their remixer.

  1. Eye Yamatsuka — Washmachine Sk8tronics
  2. Christoph Heemann — Emperor Twaddle Remix
  3. V/VM — She Chokes Her Dying Breath and Does It In My Face
  4. John Duncan — AAHHH…
  5. Matmos — Linkshänder
  6. Lee Ranaldo — EggNog Trilogy: i) She’s Ivanhoe ii) Cancer iii) Inebriated
  7. Merzbow — SNOW REM REM IBVZ
  8. David Scott Stone — Prick Concrète/Revolution M
  9. Panacea — Queen (Electroclash Remix)
  10. Sunroof! — The Silky Apple Butter of Youth
  11. Kawabata Makoto — 4th Floor Hellcopter
  12. Farmersmanual — disp_tx_skel_mach_murx
  13. Void Manes — Overgoat
  14. RLW — Over from Under the Dog, Girl & Boy Treatment
  15. Speedranch — Hard Revenge Milly Bloody Battle VS. The Melvins Ozmatized Gore Police (Feat: Cardopusher of the Five Deadly Venoms)
