Grinderman: "Hyper Worm Tamer" [U.N.K.L.E. Remix]

An album once described by band member Warren Ellis as "stoner rock meets Sly Stone via Amon Duul" would not seem to require a remix album - and truthfully it doesn't - but several producers have managed to enhance the fuzz / psych quotient through electronics without trying to make the underlying song too clubby. U.N.K.L.E. do perhaps the best job of this, the A Place To Bury Strangers mix of this same track going too far into industrial dance territory. Still, there's debatable merit to the release of Grinderman 2 RMX, which is largely just a collection of b-sides from individual singles... not sure how much point there is to that in the iTunes era, but maybe ol' man Cave is trying to buy himself some down time before getting the Bad Seeds back into the studio.
