Continuing his proclivity for the remix album, Charlatans front man and O.Genesis proprietor Tim Burgess is releasing a remix version of his 2014 Record Store Day release ‘Oh Men’. Remixes come from Stephen & Gillian from New Order who have now adopted the moniker The Other Two, alongside The Invisible Conga People and Carter Tutti. If 2013’s sonic mutilation of Burgess’ 2nd LP ‘Oh No I Love You’ is anything to go by (which accomplished the rare feat of surpassing the original) then ‘Oh Men (remixes)’ could well be similarly triumphant.

7/10 Clinton Staff review, 06 February 2015
Lush, thick, vibrant and glowing bright amongst the dull mediocrity elsewhere. Incredibly impressive and full of life. Anyway, enough about Tim Burgess’s hair and onto this latest 12”, taken from his much admired ‘On No I Love You’ album.
Prolific twitter guy Tim has loads of celeb pals and enlists some of them here to rework his ‘Oh Men’ song. First up The Other Two (aka the Arthur Mullard and Hilda Baker of New Order Stephen Morris and Gillian Gilbert) electronify his music, adding in some dancing synths and programmed drums culminating in some sweet pop shapes. Peaking Lights haven’t done much for me since their excellent ‘936’ record. I miss the murk and this kind of digi dub doesn’t cut it. The fact that all remixers use Tim’s vocal track starts to grate by the time Grumbling Fur’s mix comes round, but they add some nice strings and sing some backing vocals of their own. Invisible Conga People kind of squash everything down and Carter Tutti do everything you’d expect them not to do by making a very sweet electronic ballad with lush vocals. Musically this is the best thing here for me. Lovely.
Each mix taken on its own merits is pretty decent but due to the nature of the project this will be a samey listen when taken as a whole.
