Published Jan 05, 2012Grinderman may have just put themselves on an indefinite hiatus, but the Nick Cave-led rock quartet will deliver at least one more album, in the form of a remix record, before the troupe gets back to performing in the singer's other group, the Bad Seeds.
Simply titled Grinderman 2 RMX, the collection of re-envisioned numbers from their 2010 set Grinderman 2 reveals a number of big players. Yeah Yeah Yeahs six-stringer Nick Zinner offers up a different spin on "Bellringer Blues," which you can stream below. Elsewhere, King Crimson guitarist Robert Fripp joins the Grindermen for a reworked version of "Heathen Child". The group proper deliver a demo take of "Evil" (billed here as "First Evil") and the Horror's side project Cat's Eyes do a cover of "When My Baby Comes." Also appearing throughout the project are Queens of the Stone Age's Josh Homme, the National frontman Matt Berninger, UNKLE, A Place To Bury Strangers and more.
You can check out the full tracklisting for Grinderman 2 RMX, which comes out March 13 through ANTI-, down below.
