David Hepworth has written about reading the first volume of Mark Lewisohn's book about The Beatles. It's an excellent piece, and it almost makes me want to read Lewisohn's monumental tome. In fact, were it not for the enormous pile of 'to-be-read' (physical and electronic) already towering above me, and the fact that it's not publicly available until October 10th, I'd be tempted to dip in right away. Because as much as I dislike The Beatles' music, all of the details that Hepworth mentions are thoroughly seductive and appealing. But then that's the great thing about books: even when they have such implicit soundtracks, you don't have to listen to them.
Is it safe to say that you have already grabbed a copy of Flies On You's marvellous EP of 'Josephine' remixes? It is? Jolly good. As you were. If not, then goodness me you are missing out on a treat. Watch the video above for the scrathcy unembelished single mix, or head over to our latest mix to check out a muscular remix by The Shend. If you're quick you can download the whole mix and get a version of The Very Things' classic 'Motortown' as a special extra reward. And then of course you'll want to hop on over to Flies On You's Bandcamp presence to grab the whole EP for the extortionate price of FREE. What's not to like?
