If you're in the US and ordering the 3xLP vinyl, it's about $20 cheaper to order from the UK site (Virgin EMI) than the US site (Astralwerks). $60.44 vs $79.72 including the cheapest shipping option. The UK site has no details on packaging, but I'd assume they will be the same release. The US site says:
  • RIGID SLIPCASE
  • 3 X HEAVYWEIGHT VINYL
  • 3 X SPINED SLEEVES
  • 3 X PRINTED INNERS
  • 12 X 12 INSERT

Just a note to add about how the album may play out:

I decided to listen to the studio recordings of Free Yourself and MAH back to back and I predict they may play back to back on the album as they use the same 4x4 style beat to introduce each track. We know from past albums they like to strip down tracks all the way down to a kick drum to the next track (even in live sets).

I hope this is the case, the chems opted out of this tradition on BITE for whatever (unfortunate) reason

UPDATE: No interview or questions asked at all. The collaborations will be interesting with the chems though from old and new discoveries we'e come across.

Just thought I'd add this in, in case she might mention the work she's done with the brothers when they might ask the old question of "So what have you been up to/whats up next?"

^ LOL, I overlooked that reference until now.




Following up with Orangwedge's new discovery this morning... All the titles of songs we know about so far (and assuming they are all on the new album), seem to have a present day message to them. This looks to be shaping up into a concept album.

No Geography

Free Yourself

Mad As Hell

Got To Keep On

Eve Of Destruction

We've Got To Try

That's exactly what I thought might be the case when T&E were only subtly anwsering Lauren's question about the album's title in their Desert mix show.

UPDATE: No interview or questions asked at all. The collaborations will be interesting with the chems though from old and new discoveries we'e come across.

Damn, this is fantastic! The first song is just wonderful. Sort of reminds of an own track I "produced" years ago.
I love this KEXP's concept of live sessions and discovered some really interesting and unknown artists through them!

Pie-chart music. That's what I have for dessert.

Free Yourself is different on the album?
Is track 2 a cover version of this? Probably not, but I was thinking about Basement Jaxx earlier...

1 Eve Of Destruction
After release of the album the bros can use Eve Of Destruction as an opener. The start of the song fits wery well. The rhythm that keeps in anticipation and then the funky beat that makes everybody dancing.
Well, I was close.
Oh, and pelmeni are frigging delicious!

Some bizarre track names  :)). Not so sure my prediction of a concept album stands strong anymore.

I've had another idea about Bango:

The Todd Terry Project had a track called Bango


Which sampled a vocal from a track called Go Bang (which incidentally is kinda like two Chems song titles put together!) by Dinosaur L (sample at 3.19 below). Hot Chip did a cover of this track too. I wonder if the Chems Bango also samples Dinosaur L.


[Incidentally this record came out on the same Sleeping Bag label as Weekend by Class Action which is sampled in Eve Of Destruction]

Am I getting carried away? Yeah, probably.  ::)

maybe bango is alluding to bongo (or in this case bango) drums, so Here Comes the Drums possiblity. prayers O:-)
