Afghan Whigs Tribute: Skibunny covers “Miles Iz Ded”
When we first solicited recordings for the Afghan Whigs tribute album, we were overwhelmed with the response. There were a number of songs that we loved but just couldn’t fit onto the album. Over the next few days, we’ll be making some of our favorite non-album tracks available for download.
Skibunny: “Miles Iz Ded”
Perhaps more appropriately labeled as a re-imagining of “Rebirth of the Cool” – the first remix in the Afghan Whigs’ official canon – Skibunny (Website | Myspace) close out our bonus tracks series with a fun, uptempo party version of the classic song.
The Whigs never shied away from dance versions of their songs, later releasing a 12″ remix of “Somethin’ Hot”. Keeping with that tradition, “Belfast’s no.1 remixers, promoters and commotion causers” (via NME) create a 2009 update showcasing the versatility of the Afghan Whigs.
