Please go to this fine site and download Andrew Weatherall's remix of "Soon" from 1990. What makes me feel old? That this remix was released seventeen years ago? No: that none of the posts discussing this mix mention that Weatherall flips the guitar intro from Gang of Four's "What We All Want." Yup—when your "canon" is revealed as a photograph you've mistaken for a fact, you know time has passed. That's fine. But please listen to the Gang of Four song if you haven't recently—the live version is one of my favorite sound recordings ever ever ever.

If anyone has a 320 rip of the Weatherall, hit me.
