Yeah, I really like it too. It's definitely up there with the other floaty ones we mentioned.

I suppose people just don't have the patience for a ten minute remix, though, alas.

Do remixes still happen? Love some of the remixes but think the band/label have a bit of a checkered history with em really. I've got all the 12" remix promos from 94-02 and I love having them in my collection, very rarely listen to any of em mind. Looking back now, I find it kinda funny that they exist at all. My white label Lionrock remix of Australia has a feedback sheet with it - when and where was that going to get played? Wonder if there was a point when labels were pressing promos more for collectors than DJs.

Interesting the stuff that has and hasn't been remixed too. Course I've never done a remix meself so I'm not sure what people are looking for when they decide to do one, but think stuff like The Love Of Richard Nixon, Empty Souls and Your Love Alone sound more remixable than Pretension/Repulsion. As far as This Is My Truth goes, there are a couple of tracks on the 12" promos that never made it onto the cds, wonder if there's owt else that never made it onto the promos. Or course, if any of the sods who did the Journal mixes but weren't around in 98 fancy having a pop. Could be interesting.

I think my favourite one is Pretension/Repulsion, which sort of has James speaking in tongues.

The Jonathan Krisp remix of Bag Lady is the highlight for me, but I adore all the JFPL remixes with the stark exception of The Horrors remix of Door Closing Slowly, because it isn't anything. I really like the Horrors, but felt they couldn't be arsed there.

Remixes do still happen - the Erol Alkan remixes of Europa Geht Durch Mich were the most recent. Unfortunately remixes have fallen victim to the death of the single - the role of a remix was very often a space-filler on a single.

A good example of remixes done well is the recent (ish) RMX/RBN project where she got people to remix iconic songs of hers. It's not a big release, but keeps things ticking over. Without singles they'd probably go straight on streaming services, but could be fun nonetheless.
