Lost Chord remix The Cast Of Cheers!

I had this in my inbox when I got home last night. It's a remix by David Phelan, singer with Lost Chord, a Galway band. So two bands I've been rather excited about over the past while. Brilliant! I'd generally be wary of band members remixing songs under a name that's already familiar (not to say that Lost Chord are a massive band), but after hearing Jape's Fight Like Apes remix, which I really hated, and recently I heard another Cast Of Cheers remix by one of the Super Extra Bonus Party guys which, again, I thought was balls. I love Jape and Super Extra Bonus Party, but it's all left me further wary of remixes. If they don't enhance the original in an interesting or dancefloor friendly (see Soulwax Nite Version of Gossip's Standing In The Way Of Control, or MSTRKRFT's remix of Justice's D.A.N.C.E). Jaysus I'm ramling, but hey, if you're up for a bit of musical discovery today there are two remixes to check out, as well as four of the best Irish bands around today, The Cast Of Cheers, Lost Chord, Jape (and The Redneck Manifesto, of whom Jape is a member) and Super Extra Bonus Party!
