T. Rex / Remixes: limited triple vinyl set

Potentially controversial remix set • Very limited 3LP coloured vinyl

Demon Music are to mark the 40th anniversary of Marc Bolan’s untimely death with a project that is sure to divide fans of T. Rex. They have commissioned new remixes of classic tracks such as Metal Guru, Telegram Sam and 20th Century Boy for a two-CD set that is also available as a strictly limited 500-only triple coloured vinyl set.

T. Rex Remixes features 16 modern remixes by people you have probably never heard of, including The Reflex, Wye Oak, STOOF, Castleman, Ra Ra Riot etc. There are also 12 bonus instrumental remixes on both the triple vinyl and two-CD editions (they have exactly the same audio content).


Only 500 of the translucent red vinyl package will be pressed (click to enlarge)

I’ll admit, I was prepared to hate this, but having been given an early sneak audio preview, some of the remixes are surprisingly good. The ‘Jaxon Frank Remix’ of Children Of The Revolution is full of unexpected pathos and the STOOF remix of 20th Century Boy keeps the structure and heart of the song in place, but with a sprinkle of 21st Century audio dust.

For the most part, the remixes are respectful enough and there’s no really hideously ‘boom-tish’ club transformations, although I accept that this isn’t going to be for everyone.

However, the 500-only triple vinyl is pretty desirable and limited for a T. Rex release and it is an Amazon UK exclusive. Non-limited black vinyl is also available, as well as the two-CD set.

T. Rex  Remixes will be released on 1 September 2017. Update 9pm 13/7 – Red vinyl appears to now be sold out.
