I’M NOT GONNA BEAT ABOUT THE BUSH HERE WITH SOME OVER THE TOP MEGA WORDED POST ABOUT THIS SO I’LL GET STRAIGHT TO THE POINT.
Words fail me when i try to describe the feelings i got when i read this….
“FEBRUARY 4TH, 2011
It’s been 5 years since Death From Above 1979 played a show, 10 years since Jesse played me the first demos & 11 years since we sat in his parents basement and played so loud we knocked the china off the shelves upstairs. 11 seems to be a YES number for me. Though I am usually a pretty rational guy, if I have something on my mind and I see an 11 somewhere, I know I’m on the right path. It’s one of my last remaining superstitions. 2011 has a nice ring to it & if you’re so inclined, it may be the last year ever! So why not say YES? Why not say YES to Coachella? Why not say YES to playing the music we designed to be an undeniable source of power? Why not say YES to stirring up a writhing pit of sweaty humans? YES to riots! YES to heavy music! YES instead of maybe, and YES to make death your adviser and remind yourself always, that this is not a dress rehearsal. This is the big show.
Jesse and I have decided that what we can do together should not be denied.
Together again, as was always the intention, as a collaboration.
The collision of two different worlds.
As this all takes shape, we will reveal it to you.
All of it happening, as it always has, in our own way.
Thank you all for sharing in our excitement!
Yes indeed Sebastien. Yes infuckingdeed. There’s a pig in shit somewhere right now that is as happy as i am.
MP3: Death From Above 1979 – My Love Is Shared

ps. i’ll get the post about the oncoming slew of gigs up tomorrow night.
Another new section, just a simple post about cover versions of songs i like, dislike or maybe even just find funny. I’m gonna do 5 songs each post (well it’ll actually work out at 10 cos both versions will be included). Usually i would post MP3 versions of the songs so that you would be able to download them but i’m having a few problems with my external hard drive at the moment and it has practically all of my music on it. Over 200GB of music just vansihed 😦
Anyways, videos will have to do for the time being…and even at that, it won’t be the official videos. YouTube doesn’t allow you to embed “official” videos.

ViciousCounterPopErosion is the first mixtape i made. It contains remixes and edits of songs that i’ve done and also some of my favourite songs that i’ve maybe just tweaked a little by adding a beat , dub, sample, loop or a break and so on.
The mix also contains some out-takes from some of my favourite films (i’ll let you see if you can spot them yourself) and part of a Barack Obama speech (i thought it fitted nicely between two certain songs/themes).
ViciousCounterPopErosion is pretty heavy/loud/fast paced the whole way through so at the end i thought i’d stop the noise dead in its tracks and bring the level down a notch or two with one of my favourite new bands The Temper Trap. Very different from the rest of the mix, some might say too different but i thought it was the ideal way to finish the last 4 minutes.
I recorded and mixed the collection all in one go, it lasts about 1 hour 18 mins (short enough to fit on to a standard CD), all the songs meld into each other. Unfortunately i don’t have the software or know how to make the file into a ZIPfile/folder. Sorry. Just means you’ll have to listen to the mix the whole way through!….or skip it to a certain song, i suppose. Up to yourself.
