I’ll go for the x2 clear vinyl and the CD. Not fussed about the tee. August though eh? That’s a few weeks short of a year since the single was first released ( to streaming) . Talk about stringing 1 (one) song out.

I was reading the following Twitter thread this morning, which had input from some labels, talking about a current lead time of around 4-8 months on vinyl production here in the UK at the moment, which might explain the August release date:

Doesn't bode well for the 'Low-life' boxed set coming out in 2021, even if the current and former band members can all agree the content speedily.

Yeah, I couldn't be arsed this time around. One year and yet another live DVD on is extracting the urine. And after the 1993 - 1995 experience... Mind you, I'll probably check out Arthur Baker. His 1963 is actually more NOesque than the original.
Am I too negative? Not now https://www.comedy.co.uk...6346/spice-world-sequel/

Cheers for the heads up on this everyone.

I've ordered the CD single.

Nice that pretty much every mix is on it. Was thinking that a few would get missed off.

Well there’s a second remix by Mark Reeder - The Cheeky Devil mix that doesn’t appear to have made it to the CD or vinyl unless I’ve missed it. The Dirty Devil mix has made it but not the Cheeky Devil mix.So technically not all the official mixes. Unless the Cheeky Devil mix is not classed as official?

I guess if there's no 'Low-life' set this year, this 2 x 12" + CD single release can count as 'Be A Rebel (Definitive Edition)'...

All the remixers will have variations and other attempts that won't be released, Mark is putting it out himself I think.
There will also be instrumentals of all of them, which may find their way out digitally.

The other Reeder's mix is available (flac/mp3 only) on Bandcamp (full new Reeder's album).

I have listened to every mix of this song, from the original through all the remixes, and I just don't see the point of any of them aside from the Maceo Plex mix. The rest of them just move around the various elements, and don't really improve on what started off sounding like a Bad Lieutenant one-off. I had hopes (misplaced given his post 86 work with the band) for the Arthur Baker version. But at least the Plex mix is interesting and goes in some different more experimental directions. I wasn't familiar with him but checked out his stuff after listening to his version of BAR--quite liked "Cinemax" and could envision an alternate reality where NO was more electronically experimental again. But then maybe we wouldn't have Tutti Fruti which is my favorite track since Technique and one of my top ten in general. Can't wait for the next proper full length. Go City

You were doing so well.

Speaking of what Be A Rebel sounds like...
Way back in 1989 I remember thinking that Run sounded like John Demver. I had been subjected to his greatest hits in the family car from about the age of 11, so was very familiar with (some of) his stuff. I think I must be the only NO fan who wasn't surprised when legal action followed.

In one of Hooky's instagram chats he said there are teams of people who check simlarities for songs. Anf there's a rule that if there's somethibg like 7 or more notes out of every 12 that are the same, then there's a case for plagiarism.

Anyway I haven't counted the notes, but I think Be A Rebel sounds like this Coldplay song. Really quite a lot.

Ordered the x2 12”. From what I could work out , the CD has versions that I already have and/or will have once I have the x2 12” so didn't order the CD. The x2 12” comes with a download code of all the tracks featured on the two vinyl according to the blurb. Couldn’t log into my Mute account and when prompted to reset my password it wouldn’t rec my my email . Gave up and ordered from the nasty Amazon.
