Warpaint - The Fool [Deluxe] (2011)

The track is mixed by Pulp bassist Steve Mackey and is a complete re-working of the original version from the band's debut EP Exquisite Corpse, produced by John Frusciante (ex-Red Hot Chili Peppers).

This new version of 'Billie Holiday' will appear on the band's deluxe album (also out on 19th Sept). The album consists of their current album The Fool, Exquisite Corpse and various remixes.

why did they have to in-effect EDIT and (what sounds like poorly) REMIX Billie Holiday? lol. Who is this Steve Mackey and what gave him the brilliant idea to do this? a friend of the bands? as that description says, he plays for the band Pulp. Yeah, I'm sure they do a lot of mixing of mellotrons in that band, lol.

This "deluxe" edition, I probably will pick up, but it reeks of another case of a record label trying to Milk something good until it becomes overdone. Something special, becomes less special.

Sometimes, it's best to just to leave things alone *shrug*
