THE IMBECILES

Medicine used to be, we expected, good for us. Albeit with added sugar. Now medicine is a huge problem in itself, with vast companies caught mis-selling dangerous drugs. It’s one of the biggest scandals ever. How on earth did we get here? Who did this?

The Imbeciles are on the case.

“It’s about the dark side of prescription ‘medicines’. Oxy, Xanax, Ambien, all that. Big pharma is pushing these addictive ‘medicines’ that we don’t actually need, to desensitise / numb / kill. All for profit,” says Butch Dante.

A new classic from The Imbeciles. They know. And they made a video. Watch it here.

Now they’ve been remixed. By these people:

C.A.R.:
Impossible to categorise, and all the better for it - London based, Franco-Canadian, C.A.R., flirts with elements of new wave, cold wave, synth-pop, post punk and off-kilter disco; and without doubt wields some of the most satisfyingly other-worldly melodies and synth lines around.

Ryan James Ford:
One of the most exciting underground techno producers on the block - Ryan doesn’t constrain himself to any one rhythm, aesthetic and motif, but can always be found to be hitting the listener with thick atmosphere, dark melodies and an upfront, experimental attitude.

Legowelt:
A true pioneer of left field house and disco, this Dutch master draws from disco, italo, dub, dancehall, techno and many more sonic pools to create his wonderfully engaging, but always envelope pushing sound.

Decider Remixes (Inc. Deetron / Benedikt Frey / Fort Romeau Remixes)

Mesmerizing, ghostly, seductive, urgent, poignant, “Decider” is about the ultimate endgame: death. This track draws you into its web and holds you there. There’s no escape. Is there anything after ‘the end?’ If there is, will it bring happiness, or just more pain

The inspiration, if you can call it that, for the song comes from the band’s own recent experiences. ‘We’ve lost a few people recently that we were close to. It does tend to make you ponder the universe, and whether you get a second act,’ says Butch Dante, guitarist.

Filmed on location in the Texas panhandle, the video will be the second of a triptych of films written by Butch, focused on the band’s main preoccupation: the fact that the world is ending and people should be kinder to each other while it does.

Now they’ve been remixed by three top bods of the dance music world: Deetron, Benedikt Frey and For Romeau all providing very different takes on their fatalist sound.

This Swiss maestro Deetron takes big inspiration from the big expansive, moody sounds of Detroit. Sam Geiser also borrows percussive influence from Chicago house whilst instilling his very own atmospheric personality, making for one hell of a ride on his remix.

Benedikt Frey provides an esoteric, speaker-testing rub down for blackened black rooms and low ceiling dance establishment, haunting vox and ghostly washes decorating his gothic remix.

Cin Cin boss Fort Romeau concludes with a decidedly different take than his textured electronic dancescapes that have made him an almost household name. Drawing out the clanging metallic bass, emphasizing the krautian repetition and snarling from behind ripped denim and safety pin-adorned boots; this is a punky-krauty-dance party folks and worth the entrance fee along!

Also included is the intoxicating original, heavy with slashing guitar lines and dark emotional content; it’s the perfect ode to our crumbling times…
