Three Memes


Hot on the heels of their new Mr Dynamite album with US singer John Grant as Creep Show, the electronic 3 piece Wrangler release a new EP. The lead remix is by Crooked Man (Richard Barratt aka Parrot) who started mixing drum machines and soul music in Sheffield 30-odd years when Stephen Mallinder was still in Cabaret Voltaire. He later became one half of Sweet Exorcist with Richard H Kirk – early pioneers of techno on Warp label – is a founding member of the band All Seeing I, works regularly with Roisin Murphy and is now creating forward looking house music for DFA Records. Another new, previously unreleased track for this EP is LoneLady’s remix of ‘Space Ace’ from Wrangler’s debut album, LA Spark. The guitar and vocals are instantly recognisable on this collaboration which is their third together, following LoneLady (Julie Campbell) contributing guitars on Wrangler’s ‘Dirty’ (from second album, White Glue) and Wrangler remixing LoneLady’s ‘Bunkerpop’ from Campbell’s album of the same name. The other remix on the EP is Daniel’s Miller’s fantastic take on ‘Theme From Wrangler’ which has up to now only been available on the limited edition Wrangler album, Sparked.
