INDIE DANCE: NAD / BLACK DOG / BEAUMONT HANNANT
A couple of weeks ago we had a couple of Beaumont Hannant remixes of Neds Atomic Dustbin. Here is another one from Hannant, alongside a rare Black Dog remix.
NAD were an archetypal indie guitar band of the early 1990s. They formed in November, 1987 and disbanded in October, 1995 (although they did reform in 2000).
Today’s tracks again come from 1995 single “All I Ask Of Myself”. The original version is full of standard Ned’s guitar fury – and none the worse for that. But the remixes are quite explicitly going for a different market. And the mixes, here by Beaumont Hannant (previously featured) and The Black Dog (previously featured), remove pretty much all traces of guitar and turn it into a claustrophobic electronic click and crackle fest. Again, for anyone who ever liked anything from Warp’s IDM days.
