Maynard James Keenan's shock-rock strangeoids Puscifer will be remixed by Sir Mix-a-Lot on a forthcoming full-length dubbed All Re-Mixed Up. In other news, remember Sir Mix-a-Lot? Indeed, the ass-obsessed Seattle MC-producer who gave the world "Baby's Got Back" is mounting a comeback on August 27 via his "F.U.B.A.R. remix" of "Conditions of My Parole" from the 2011 Puscifer album of the same name, as Antiquiet reports.
In fact, all 12 songs from the industrial-ish group's second LP are getting reworked. Other contributors include Queens of the Stone Age affiliate Alain Johannes, Aaron Harris of Chino Moreno's Palms project, Telefon Tel Aviv's Josh Eustis (now of Nine Inch Nails as well), This Mortal Coil founder John Fryer, Rani Sharone of Stolen Babies, and occasional Puscifer member Carina Round, who co-wrote 2009's "The Humbling River."
While the Conditions revisions sport names such as "Giorgia O’Queef mix" and "11AD remix" (presumably a play on 4AD and This Is Spinal Tap), Keenan and his motley crew clearly take the process seriously:
"All Re-Mixed Up is the continuation of the Puscifer tradition to release alternate versions, reworks, and remixes of what we consider initial thoughts," said the mustachioed mastermind via statement. "For instance, Carina Round was nervous about how to approach her version of 'Telling Ghosts. Mat Mitchell put her at ease by asking her to think of it as a song half written, advising her to 'now write the other half.' It's extremely liberating in the digital age to approach composing and creating in this manner. Infinite paths to explore, reinterpret, and re-present."
