White Zombie Biography - White Zombie Discography - All Heavy Metal Bands

Description

Remix albums are often iffy propositions. Either the remixes add nothing to the originals, or veer off so unrecognizably that you wonder what made you want to hear the damn songs in the first place. Well, this disc–essentially a chopped ’n’ channeled version of the Zombies’ Astro-Creep 2000–deftly avoids both of those pitfalls, thanks in large part to the indelible freak-show presence of Rob Zombie. Some mixes, like those by house music whiz Mike ”Hitman” Wilson and psychedelic rappers P.M. Dawn, push the envelope extensively, while industrial master John Fryer and the ubiquitous Dust Brothers just enhance the band’s freak-show quintessence. Fans of the surreal should note the presence of a cover of K.C. & the Sunshine Band’s ”I’m Your Boogie Man.” –David Sprague

  • Usually re-mixes bore the hell outta me and for the most part I don’t see the point? If you have a good cd/song, why mess with it? Why take good songs and destroy them completely? Examples, Yes and Queen re-mixes come to mind just off the top of my head as really bad attempts at this. Anyway this is not the case here. Sure their are a few short comings, but for the just cranking it up at parties factor this cd rocks and the girl’s a nice touch as well.

    Overall a decent attempt that deserves some notice.

  • Remix albums are most of the time not done too well (see Rob Zombie’s “American Made Music to Strip By”), but this is the only case I have come across where a remix album is quite good. The songs from “Astro Creep 2000″ are remixed pretty good, adding a techno vibe to the songs, plus there is a cover of “I’m Your Boogieman” which is also on “The Crow: City of Angels” soundtrack. Sadly though, this was White Zombie’s last official recording before their untimely breakup.

  • Usually remix albums are a horrible thought. Very rarely do they deliver a complete experience and most remixes these days seem to just take one line out of a song and repeat it over a crummy breakbeat. However, Supersexy Swingin’ Sounds is more like another interpretation of one of the best albums out there, Astro Creep 2000. All the sings from Astro Creep are remixed here (excluding Creature Of The Wheel and I Zombie) plus a remix of “I’m Your Boogie Man” which originally appeared on the Crow City Of Angels soundtrack. All the mixes on here sound awesome, I don’t think there is a track on here I don’t like. I pretty much wore out my Astro Creep CD, so this is a new way of listening to it. My favorite remix would have to be the Wine, Women & Song Mix of “El Phantasmo & the Chicken Run Blast-O-Rama” which just almost surpasses it’s original (It’s also pretty much the theme song of a radio station here). If you are a fan of White Zombie’s or Rob’s work, I strongly recommend you pick this up. It’s not like other remix albums and I promise it won’t disappoint.

  • First off,let me say just how much I LOVE the lay-out art work on this CD release(hubba-hubba!).They used several full color adult pin-ups from(would have to be)the late ’60’s era.I must also admit that I may like this disc better than I do their ‘Astro-Creep:2000′ mostly because it has a diverse sound on just about every tune.Totally dug the after dark mix of “Electric Head Pt.2″,the raw mix of “Grease Paint And Monkey Brains” and the ass-kicking wine,women and song mix of “Blood,Milk And Sky” the most.Great compilation CD.

  • When I bought this, it was really cheap and this was the only White zombie CD not in my collection so I figured, why not? Well I prepared myself to cringe, figuring Astro Creep would be butchered, since Rob Zombie’s American Made Music to Strip By had done just exactly that to Hellbilly Deluxe. Half of the Remix’s on here are not bad at all, the other half of them are not that great but none of them are nessisarily agonizing to listen to. The best one’s have been remixed by Charlie Clouser (Electric head pt. 2, More human than Human, Real Solution #9 and El Phantasmo…) The only song from Astro Creep that hasn’t been Remixed is Creature of the wheel and the reason for that I think is that that awesome sludge song would have been pretty hard to remix. So instead, the Dust Brother remixed White Zombie’s cover of K.C. and the Sunshine Band’s I’m Your Boogie Man, which was originally found on the Soundtrack for the Crow (which by the way is a really good movie). Other remixes that are not half bad include the I’ Zombie Remix and the Super Charger Remix. However remixes like those of Blur the Technicolor and Blood, Milk and Sky fall flat into annoyance. The worst remix here is by far the one for Electric Head pt. 1, in which the original was so good that it’s honestly no surprise of how bad this version is. It’s not a must have to own in your collection, only if you are a big fan of Rob Zombie and White Zombie. Get this cheap or used, and you can appreciate it a little more. As for Rob’s other remix album, don’t even bother. And as for the CD jacket, well there is no nudity but I have the sudden urge to buy a hammock. Hoped this helped.
