so, whats in it for me?so the ever growing list of bands championed by the nme is full of floppy haired art school geezers from london who hang out around camden market in their scruffy jeans and stripey jumpers with aspirations of libertinesque proportion. well fxck that, and god bless bloc party. men of the moment, and winning the race to be the new-new wave restorators they sure are. the nme got it right this time. finally a bunch of fellows doing something awesome, and who sleep at home each night - rather than in some dingy soho police cell trying to score some crack from the whore next door.
and so here we are, listening to a helicopter remix.... which just so happens to be from the cd single 'so here we are'. normally i find remixes to be criminal butcherings of what was once a monumental piece of musicianship. simon bookish really did fuck michael in the ass. im still bitter from it, and franz should be sore too. sherif whitey gets props though. helicopter is an amazing song, and whilst his remix doesnt quite have that instant dance til you drop factor of the original, it does give an eerie extended twist to a song that will continually let the good times roll.
