Manic Street Preachers, “Virginia State Epileptic Colony” (Fuck Buttons Remix) MP3

Last night at some ungodly hour, the entire FADER staff worked away to create the next issue of our magazine. Somewhere close to midnight, someone put on Fuck Buttons' undeniably epic Tarot Sport, their new Andrew Weatherall-produced record that sounds like a bunch of vampires having a rave in a church (see also: the first two Blade movies). We have never turned out pages faster than while we were jamming that record. It turns out that in addition to their new album, FB have been working on other stuff, like this remix of Manic Street Preachers' "Virginia State Epileptic Colony," which sounds more like an outtake from Fuck Button's debut record, anchored not by hypnotic drum pulse, but ground to dust under the weight of synthesizers and cement mixers and pedal loops or whatever the hell it is these dudes use to make their music. In addition to the Fuck Buttons remix, the Manic Street Preachers have a grip of reworks featuring the aforementioned Weatherall, Optimo, The Horrors and others on a second disc that will accompany their record.
