Listen: Cold Cave, “Life Magazine (Arthur Baker's Not Going Back Remix)”

The other week Stereogum posted a remix of Cold Cave's "Life Magazine" by Pantha Du Prince, and now they're premiering Arthur Baker's take on the track. From Baker's recent interview with the Village Voice:

I’m working with this group Cold Cave. I really love to experiment, and I love to boldy rip apart a track, but I really like to start with something that’s good. I passed up the Happy Mondays’ first record because I just thought the songs were shit. As it turned out, they’re a really good band, but the songs weren’t good. With me, it’s my personal taste. I’m sure I’ve passed on things that have become hits. But to hit the studio and work on things I don’t like? You can’t polish shit.

You can download the track here.

Cold Cave performs at LPR on April 29th. Get tickets here.
