Buffalo Daughter, one of the cooler bands signed to the Beastie
Boys' Grand Royal label (which is saying a lot), will release a remix EP on
June 10 called Socks, Drugs and Rock and Roll .
The 6 song EP is
comprised of songs from the band's moog pop noise 1996 debut, Captain Vapour
Athletes, and features a remix of "Dr. Moooog," by Atari Teenage Riot
leader Alec Empire, B-Boys keyboardist Keyboard "Money" Mark laying his hands
on "Big Wednesday," DJ collective U.N.K.L.E. re-arranging "LI303VE" and Stock,
Hausen and Walkman remixing the non-album track "Daisy." That same track is
also revived by 25 Ton, otherwise known as Alex Young and the band does their
own reorganization of the album track "Silver Turkey."
The artwork on the
CD was compiled by none other than Mike Mills, graphic designer extraordinaire
and member of Grand Royal sister band Butter 08. BD are tentatively scheduled
to release a still-untitled new album in September.
