There's A Lot Of Ruins (Mike Simonetti's Version For Fred)
Do You See What I See (Mike Simonetti's 1982 edit)
Iced Bear (Mike Simonetti's Cold Re-Do)
Review: 'I Love It When A Plan Comes Together' features new edits by Mike Simonetti of Italians Do It Better. Three post-punk jammers are put to wax in part one of his Mike series. Mike decided not to go the typical route and edit rare Balearic tracks or unknown boogie. Instead he went into his past as a punk and did some re-edits of post-punk gems. You may recognize some of these tunes; he promises to bust out the rare joints next time.
Needs more Cowbell (Taking out The Bad Parts edit)
Who Let The Dogs Out? (Pooper Scooper Droop re-do)
Review: Round two of edits lifted from the archives of IDIB boss Mike Simonetti's extensive record collection. A live version of everyone's favourite Fleetwood Mac song is extended across the A Side whilst the flip is one for the disco obsessives with Simonetti tweaking an obscure percussive freakout and an 80s no wave rarity.
Review: Italians Do It Better label boss Mike Simonetti takes the chance to indulge a baying audience of fans eager for more Chromatics and Glass Candy material with some of his class A edits. The latest 12" in the ongoing Mike series sees the erstwhile Simonetti introduce a wider audience to the talents of one Chris Burns, engineer to Mike's debut release proper Capricorn Rising last year, and also one half of the M + C music project alongside Simonetti. All four tracks are on a house tip and Burns' incendiary update of a mid 90s Strictly Rhythm classic on "Smooth Retouch" is a particular highlight here alongside "Steal The Vibe", a rough hewn journey into piano stab heavy house.
