Live at the Social Volume 3 featuring Andrew Weatherall and Richard Fearless is out now. Tracklist is somewhere below in this page. Mine hasn't arrived yet, but someone has said it is definitely the better of the two mixes.
MUZIK MAGAZINE AND Grooverider, who was guest reviewer, didn't like the new Two Lone Swordsmen 7" on Slut Smalls. From Jockey Slut (04.05.99): "Weatherall and Tenniswood provide two exclusive tracks of wigged-out electrics on the A while over Twisted Nerve's Dakota Oak Trio turn in sublime and gragile melody. Not to be sniffed at. Crap label though."
OLD-NEW SABRES NEWS, well to this Sabres fan. I just got the 12" of LMNO's Silcock Express and whoa! the mix is different than the CD. cool.
JUST ADDED TO the Flightpath is a quick link to text-only discographies. Latest stuff gets entered there first.
THE TICK TOCK remix of Chiapet is similar to the Klunk recordings. A Stomping beat with crunchy fuzzed-up snoring?! The runout reads "RGC plus 2 remix" / "Swordsmen".
'UNITY GAIN' 12": JEGA AND KID SPATULA: Unity Gain 12" (PLANET MU). "Strictly limited edition clear vinyl split single. 2000 only for the world, in special artwork, split between Jega (Dylan Nathan) and Kid Spatula (Mike Paradinas). Jega: 'Unity Grain' is essentially a remix of a Two Lone Swordsmen track which was due for release on Warp. Kid Spatula: only album to date released by Reflective in the US. A slab of dysfunctional gabba."
IF YOU STILL haven't picked up 'Stay Down', it's available in the US very soon. Here is a press release:
TWO LONE SWORDSMEN: Stay Down CD (MATADOR). "Two Lone Swordsmen (Keith Tenniswood & Andrew Weatherall) are lined up to be the third Matador/Warp co-release. Stay Down is an intense conceptual soundscape (think the KLF's Chill Out in Davy Jones' locker, instead of on the high plains) that is neither wholly focused on the head nor the feet, but somewhere in-between with its submerged atmospherics and vacillating rhythms. After a slight respite, Stay Down is followed by five bonus tracks from the A Bag of Blue Sparks EP, an invigorating mix of electro-funk that stands in sharp contrast with Stay Down's shadowy forms. Slinky, pulsating, visceral and essential."

THERE ARE FEW remixes of the Lord Sabre's work, but when something gets remixed it gets done right. To jog your memory put on Versus or Swimming Not Skimming--yeah, both of those mini albums of top-notch remixes. Anyway, JEGA give 'Black Commandments' the remix treatment and have not failed one bit. Further along the ideas of 'Black Commandments 2', now with lots of scratching/cut-ups over a more prominent moody melody. Look for it on the Domestic US release of 'Spectrum'. (This was out a long time ago, but i didn't have time to pick it up--sorry.)
THE ELECTRONIC REMIX comes straight out of the Bag of Blue Sparks sessions and sounds nothing like the original. (The promo mix and commercial release are in fact the same despite the differing track names.) Where the original is rather slow and somewhat droning, the Swordsmen have injected the Prodigal Son with the sort of electro deemed for breakdancing. Fantastic stuff no less.
