The last one is just the standard 4:48 mix, unless I'm mistaken.

Only just got around to listening to the new mixes.
Rather wonderful, I think.

The song is so light and breezy and the remixes highlight certain elements that I hadn't really noticed in the standard mix.

I think the band should remix themselves more often. Would be nice to hear different versions of any future tracks.

Maybe they are waiting for the Mark Reeder Remixes to be finished so they can add it to the cd , it will probably have these 3 remixes plus more, I am only assuming

I was going to say the 12" comes with a download code for both MP3 and FLAC, so I was second-guessing whether a CD single release would happen, but I forgot about the Mark Reeder mixes.

Maybe a second 12" single with Reeder's mixes plus a CD combining everything?

Nice 12”. All mixes have something to offer. I love barneys vocal on this track but at the same time loving Bernards instrumental version. Too much vocoder on his vocal mix. Very playable and addictive versions on this 12”

12 inch arrived just before my lunchtime whilst working from home. A welcome relief from the tedium, and great to hear these mixes for the first time direct from the vinyl.

The track has slowly grown on me, but the original mix still sounds very demo-like. Barney's mix is by far the best mix, despite not including quite all the lyrics and replacing some with the vocoder (which I love). Kind of a very cool hybrid of an extended mix and a dub mix. Love it, and as mentioned, the instrumental version also sounds fab.

Steve's mix is also great, but has more of a 90s Motiv8 remix feel to it, so it's all about the Barney mix for me. I like that the previously released shorter version of Barney's mix isn't a straightforward edit, but rather a different arrangement of the same mix with a slower build up - although the full mix is much better and just gets straight into the beats.

Interesting that both mixes feature bass guitar melody lines that are barely audible or non-existent in the single mix. Both remixes expose sound and rhythmic layers tucked away on the original mix that I hadn't picked out before - the light electronic tom drums, and "Hooky" bass riff (which is in the single mix just before the first chorus if you listen carefully) for example.

When you look back and think of all the acts they've produced or remixed over the years, it's amazing they've not thought to do their own individual band member remixes of their singles like this before, and I really love the concept. Who knows, maybe if Hooky had been encouraged to do his own mixes of their singles from 'True Faith' onwards for each 12" it might have made him less resentful when his bass was less prominent in the album versions.

Barney's done some wonderful remixes over the years (ACR's 'Wont Stop Loving You' and Years & Years' 'Sanctify' to name just two). This one is up with his very best.

An above average song, but a wonderful 12" release with some fab remixes.

I tagged Mark Reeder about when we'll hear his Be a Rebel remix in a Tweet regarding Stephen and Bernards. In addition to his reply, he was nice enough to DM me with more detail:

"I have no idea re the BAR release date. everything got delayed (even though i finished my rmx first, back in august) hopefully, it will be worthy of inclusion on the vinyl/physical release, but i guess that will all depend on how many likes i get or how many people write to mute..."

It's seems bizarre to me that Twitter "likes" and people pestering Mute would determine if and when they release something that's already complete.

Got the 12 inch yesterday, and found the stickers.

I cut a little slit in the side, and stuffed it into that so I won't lose it someday.

Packed away the box, with the rest of the other records. Maybe someday I will
open it up to look at it.

The fact that Bernard discussed recovering from COVID-19 in the interview I posted drew focus away from what I think is the most interesting bit: That Be a Rebel is about his youngest son struggling in school due to not fitting in. Bernard also had this issue which explains the "...it's a family affair" lyric. Overall, this has given me a new appreciation for the song, just as much as the remixes having beefed up the sound.

Amazon are knocking out the digital 4 tracks for £1.79 which is a bargain, I think. Enjoying the tracks, still can't quite shake the feeling the original version is going to go into Sink Or Swim by Bad Loo at any minute but the remixes are lovely.

Someone noted on Facebook that Barney's mixes are different on the vinyl and download - something about being slightly longer on the vinyl and not featuring the pretend "Hooky" guitar. Someone suggested Barney tweaked the mixes slightly after they'd gone off to be pressed.

Not checked yet myself, but will do a comparison this evening...

Hmm... I think it did seem like extra guitar on the download of one or both Bernard mixes compared to the vinyl but I just assumed I simply hadn’t been listening closely enough to the vinyl. Will have to compare again.
