Get Yourself High is really cool too. Vocals/rap comes from K-Os, which has some nice stuff too. Check his album Joyfull Rebellion out. it's not all good, but there sure are some cool tunes on it.
not all that albumn is good┐ blasphemy!!!!

and i agree with gambit about get yourself high and golden path being great... can understand why they aren┤t on the albumn though...

anyhow, that is cool news about the rumors of the next albumn

Re: A Chem. Bros. question
i agree that there have been some great Chem Brothers B-Sides as of late, and even "H.I.A" from the "Come With Us" era was rad. But there are also some clunkers. "Base 6" and "Nude Night", for example, seem pretty thrown-together. That's probably why they're not on the albums! It's all subjective, though.

Concerning "Acid Children" (Electronic Battle Weapon 7)...yes, it sounds blistering live (based on boots i have), but the CD single release lacks the energy, imho...the song itself isn't incredible, but put it in the mix in a live setting, and i'm sure you can think it's the best. thing. ever.

Finally, i'm a little surprised with the rumors for their next release already. The Chems are on something of a 2-3 year cycle with releases...counting promo singles, "Exit Planet Dust" is 94-95, "DYOH" from 96-97, "Surrender" from '99, "Come With Us" is late 01-02', "Push the Button" from late 04-05. (not counting the greatest hits collection in there, though that did spawn two more singles). Seems a bit early for details about the next project, especially as they just released the live EP.

I was too when I heard about it. I guess the rumor is they signed like a six album contract and want to release the sixth one as soon as they can to get out of it.

Re: A Chem. Bros. question
Well that rumor was over the summer. They have EWB8 coming in the next few months and on NYE there was 4 new tracks unleashed. Ed said to me that they will be in the studio most of this year and I expect they will play a few Glint events.

What the hell? This is some damn good stuff, and they're not putting it out on their albums.

(Also, I LOVE the DFA remix of "The Boxer." Highly recommend it to all Chem. Bros. and DFA fans.)
I agree, those 2 b-sides are VERY excellent tracks.

Really all I can say is that they have always done this. Not Another Drugstore was a b-side, and that easily could have been on Dig. But I'm betting that they had to choose between that and Block Rockin' Beats as the album opener, and clearly we all know how well BRB went over.

The only other way that I can put it is.. sometimes bands or groups record as many as 100 songs for one album, but at the end they may only choose the best 10 or 12 that work and flow best together as a concept. And unfortunately, like in the case of a duo like Boards of Canada.. there's a very good chance that we may not ever be able to hear any of those other tracks. But as a fan of the Chems., we're lucky because we have the chance to hear what is quite possibly the better of the leftovers on the single releases.
