Thor Johnson remixed a piece of mine posted a few months ago:
"Tasteful Triphop (Thorrific Shruti Box Remix)" [mp3 removed].
The original tune is here:
"Tasteful Triphop" [mp3 removed].
Johnson's version is darker and more haunted. It is no longer tasteful, but instead might be described as a combination of Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music and Can's "ethnographic forgery series," with a modern but gritty digital edge.
Johnson also has a new web video
(approx 24 MB Flash file), a psychedelic montage of Dick Cheney's recent, much-booed "throwing out the first pitch" photo op with the debated-and-then-quickly-forgotten clip of American soldiers shooting the wounded in Fallujah. The repressed returns to mingle with the banality of evil (that baseball jacket!).
