This track is now available for download as part of a bumper collection of Mr Stormy's Monday Selections - his second year of random romps through the murky, cavernous DGM archives, torch in hand, fedora upon his head.
Bill Bruford memorably likened the recording of Thrak as similar to entering a hard-hat area on a building site. All kinds of things were being constructed and, in the case of this particular selection from Mister Stormy, deconstructed. David Bottrill, who had played such an important part of the Vrooom / Thrak precursor, The First Day by Sylvian & Fripp, is given free reign to reimagine and reinvent the Double Trio. There’s a decidedly spooky ambience in which the track, much like an old friend, is seen at an unexpected and unconventional angle. Ultimately, the experiment was left behind once the band decamped from Real World and the album was released. Until now.

why isn't there an entire remix album of kc????, Wed., Sep 30, 2009

Fantastic! I always was disappointed that the electronica version of KC never materialized. In the mid 90s that was really the scene that was happening. So vibrant and intelligent, world music, drum and bass, disco, techno all coming together.
The remix thing was another strand of this scene. Originally put on the road by groups like Soft Cell, Depeche Mode, New Order, etc, it developed into its own genre by the late 80-s, when the Detroit house music scene exploded. New groups emerged and developed. Moby started as a DJ and developed into a dj/rock musician hybrid, groups like The Grid, The Future Sound of London (both of whom Robert Fripp collaborated with) emerged. A group like Orbital deleveloped live shows with live improvations, similar to jazz or psychedelic rock(or KC if you like) but sticking to the genre of dance music.
The remix became what live improvisations were for jazz. You took a theme, or well known song, deconstructed and reconstructed it and turned it into sth. new. Fantastic and so refreshing. Even though the idea was not new, the sound was new.
As for KC, there are so many songs I would like to see remixed, fist of all Dangerous Curves, One More Red Nightmare, Larks’ Talks In Aspic Pt II, The Sheltering Sky, Elephant Talk and many more. So, if there more "remixed versions" of KC tracks, please keep it going ...!!!
