As an FYI, if you order the SMD album from Record Store (http://www.recordstore.co.uk/), not only do you get a signed copy of the album, some badges and a sticker, but you also get a free SMD Rarities disc ("Attack Decay Sustain Release: Limited Edition Rarities Disc" - black cardboard sleeve) with the following tracks on it:

1. Clock
2. I Believe (Pinch’s I Believe in Bass Therapy Remix)
3. It’s The Beat (Masseymix)
4. It’s The Eat

The Masseymix is the long, 14 minute, version btw.

I think that I've now got everything SMD have released (all purchased legally)...

Lovely stuff - thoroughly recommended right from "The Mighty Atom" EP through to the re-release of "Hustler" (featuring a lovely Kevin Saunderson remix)!

:D

Yeah I think SMD are underrated when it comes to the music they make (as opposed to their production) as they hang around with the indie crowd. Meeting one of them (James Ford? I can't remember the name of the one at Wang!) was really cool.

And for another (vague) 808 link, their mix of Bjork's 'Innocence' is easily one of the tracks of the year, IMHO!

Strictly speaking this is off-topic, but I'm enjoying how we've managed to keep all SMD postings in just the one topic (for a change) :

The January 2008 issue of Mixmag (issue 200) features an exclusive SMD DJ mix and is out now. The mix features SMD's Sleep Deprivation (seems to be album version). There's a nice little misprint on the sleeve for all trainspotters: Artist 'ZZT' (track 13) is incorrectly printed as 'ZTT'. :)
