Baxter Dury’s ‘Say Nothing’ – one of the highlights from his recently released, critically-acclaimed new album ‘The Night Chancers’ – has been given two remixes, one by Minsky Rock – Syd from Working Men’s Club and Ross Orton the Sheffield producer, who have recently remixed JARV IS..) and created the Working Mens Club meagmix – and one by South London dub pioneer Wrongtom. Of the Minsky Rock version, Baxer says: “This how to take the basic cells of a sleepy spoken word number and turn it into a bastard 80s electro animal”.
Wrongtom says ‘Spring boarding from Baxter’s description of laying down on a motorway, I wanted to make it sound like being run over by some kind of disco – reggae juggernaut’
Bill Brewster on Baxter Dury’s ‘Say Nothing’ “is a tale of two contrasting remixes. Ross Orton is a former member of the Fat Truckers who, thanks to strict government guidelines, has slimmed down a Well-Toned Trucker. His association with Syd Minsky-Sargeant began when the former produced the latter’s astonishing soon come debut by Working Men’s Club. Minsky Rock is their bastard love child. Their remix is a muscular workout that sounds like a souped-up Steve Gadd drum demonstration with an unrelenting pace that drives from nose-to-tail. Baxter does indeed love you. Dubmeister Wrongtom who has been turning in some killer remixes for True Thoughts of late, delivers a beautiful, lilting Lover’s Rock style rework that retains the tempo of the original while launching the song somewhere towards the Pacific, on a raft entirely made out of raffia and reverb.
Also, Baxter’s new tour dates below have now been moved to March next year.
