Themes From Great Cities

It might have come to your attention that I'm not a regular poster of love and understanding, which you will just have to get used to. I will however, have bursts of creativity where I move completely randomly from post to post with no rhyme or reason.

Some of the rips are my own, but many more are from other blogs on the interweb and I’m just sharing the wealth.

Should you have any Questions, Comments, Ideas, Re-up Requests or just general straight forward Requests post them in the relevant comments boxes and I’ll get back to you.


Mesopotamia (The Remixes)

David Byrne of Talking Heads, long a supporter of the band, was brought in to produce the sessions for the B-52’s third album, but creative differences between Byrne and the group, as well as a lack of enthusiasm from their record labels, led them to scrap the project. Some of the completed tracks were issued in early 1982 as an EP, Mesopotamia, but that is not what we have here. The lovely people at Planet Clique produced a 7 track remix promo CD with versions of Love Land, Cake and no less than five versions of Mesopotamia. 

Ripped from the 2006 promo CD to Tech House FLAC
