A good way to start the week.. The good folks at Caught By The River in association with Heavenly Recordings are streaming a new remix of Birds Flew Backwards. The remix was done by Chris Watson, one of the founder members of Cabaret Voltaire, now famed wildlife sound recordist. Do check out his website, he’s done some pretty amazing stuff.
Also announced today at Caught By The River, is the second Birdsongs compilation. This time the compilation has been put together by Jimi Goodwin! To get the download, you must sign up with your email address at the site. The download will be sent out to members on Wednesday. So if you are not signed up, do so now! Artwork for the compilation has been done by Matt Sewell, which features a Robin as requested by Jimi.
Also whilst your at Caught By The River, check out the Happy Mondays post featuring some good Factory Records video footage. Great stuff!

Check back on Monday for news of a new doves remix and a Compilation put together by Jimi.
Until then, why not check out the new song from Broken Social Scene! Just released at their website as a free download, World Sick is a pretty special tune. They are big fans of doves too, really nice guys. Great to have them back.
Thanks to Alan, for sending the link for this interview Aeroplane did, wich has a wee mention of Brazil, which apparently doves didn’t like..
The Doves remix they were kind of upset because there was a really cool guitar that was doing the whole track. We never even tought about keeping the guitar we just skipped to vocal.At the end the remix was completely different than original.That is not what they expected at all.But that is what makes us exciting about remixing
Otherwise, not too much going on in doves world. Tickets for the Ritz Dyslexia Awareness benefit gig are now only a fiver. See the new flyer on the right for details. I have got a couple goodies lined up for tomorrow.
