Memories...

Clor - Love and Pain (James Ford Remix) // MP3 Wha? What is this? An old one? A reallly old one, like a FEW YEARS AGO old? This is older than, like, Blue Monday, or something, I imagine. Back when Simian Mobile Disco weren't the ultra-cool-super-hipster nerds that they are, before the 'Hustler' craze (even Spank Rock, in a very non-elegant way, put it in their weak Fabric mix). That was, kids, before Kitsune spotted them, before the great remixes, Suck My Deck, and the new album. Even before the backlash that will onslaught us afterwards - James Ford, of SMD, was pretty much anonymous.

This great remix was rejected by Clor, such an unfortunate decision by them, which might explain their split later - bad decisions all along.

James Ford and his mate James Shaw have become this decade's Chemical Brothers (and if anyone heard 'Do It Again' yet - they should know how irrelevant the Bros are these days), Ford produced the Klaxons' album (good songs, bad attitude). Things have evolved.

And Clor? Clor has been fogotten ever since. The blogger kids don't play them in their puny parties anymore, or include them in their puny mixes anymore. Van She is ok, Guns N Bombs is fine, Justice is excellent, but no, no Clor.

At the end of the day, all in all, at any rate and anywho - this is of course a fantastic remix, an "old gem", if you will. Maybe even an obscurity, given you're a 16 year old blog reading teenager that listens to The Teenagers. Tell your friends.

Guns N Bombs are fine, yet T Messing is more than excellent (a bit of the Walla! attitude, I know, but what can I do)..
