Remix of Record Shop and Lullabye from The Bobby mcGee's forthcoming 2nd album.


Jimmy mcGee asked the internet if anyone wanted to remix tracks from their forthcoming album. I said yes, having done 'No Friends' previously. Soon, he had sent me two cds with the entire sessions in source material and notes on every song.

Having trawled through all the material, I was drawn to the sombre 'king of england', and the begging-for-a-lust-for-life-refitting 'record shop'. I was also intrigued by Jimmy's notes on 'lullabye', saying he wanted to let rip with full-on 'sweet-child-o'-mine' guitars, but was vetoed, and there would be no such limits on my remix.

Now, I have no love for SCOM, so I didn't think about it too much. The trouble with 'Record Shop' was that there was a drum solo in the middle, and I was stripping out all the drums. So I thought back to the shorter Lullabye and thought, well, I can just slot that song in here and do Jimmy's slash-esque guitars, which in the process became more grungy, more suedey. So what we have at the end is a mashup of the two tracks.

In order to fit the songs to the programmed and sampled drums (Dildano's 'go skippy' and Dead Kennedies' 'forward to death' I had to time stretch all the songs by cutting up into individual bars and timestretching each one to fit, like I had to do with 'no friends' back in the day; but new better software has made it much easier and I would reccomend the technique to anyone who wants to remix material that was not recorded to click. In this case though, I had to do my own sub-mix of the 'Record Shop' song, and then timestretch that to fit.
