SOME STUFFS: New Frankie Goes To Hollywood compilation to come…in August

War is peace. Freedom is slavery. Ignorance is strength.

For the casual fan, it might seem odd that there is yet another Frankie Goes To Hollywood compilation CD, or in this case a double CD. “Aren’t deluxe editions enough?” might be a question that comes up. Considering how many mixes were created for their songs, it seems the possibilities are almost endless, and fortunately for fans of FGTH and the Zang Tumb Tuum happy camp, there’s still a good amount of music left.

The subtitle of Sex Mix is Archive Tapes and Studio Adventures, Volume One, which if the title is any indication, there will be at least another set in store sometime in the future. For this new one, scheduled for release on the 6th of August, the focus is on mixes found on their cassingles and CD singles, which were different from those mixes found on vinyl. FGTH fans (like myself) sought after the cassingles (or what they call a “singlette”) because the programs on each one were different, it often had liner notes unique to the format, and it made for a completely different listening experience from what you’d buy on vinyl. Here is the official track listing:

Disc 1

Happy Hi! (All in the Body)
Welcome to the Pleasuredome (The Soundtrack from Bernard Rose’s Video)
Get It On (Long Version)
Welcome to the Pleasuredome (How to Remake the World)
Happy Hi! (All in the Mind)
Relax (International)
The Power of Love (Extended Singlette Version)
The World is My Oyster (Trapped)
Holier Than Thou (FGTH’s Christmas Message)
The World is My Oyster (Scrapped)
Holier Than Thou (further festive messaging)
The Power of Love (Instrumental Singlette Version)
The World is My Oyster (at its full length)
Don’t Lose What’s Left
Rage Hard + ++ *

Disc 2
Relax (Sex Mix)
Later On (from One September Monday)
Ferry Cross The Mersey (…and here I’ll stay)
Two Tribes (Keep the Peace – Intro)
One February Friday (Singlette Version Part 1)
Two Tribes (Carnage)
One February Friday (Singlette Version Part 2)
War (somewhere between Hiding and Hidden)
One February Friday (Singlette Version Part 3)
Two Tribes (Keep the Peace – Outro)
Warriors of the Wasteland (Compacted)
Do You Think I’m Sexy?
Watching the Wildlife (Voiceless)

After seeing this, what could a Volume 2 consist of? At this point, who knows. There are still a few mixes that have not been officially released by ZTT but can be found in bootleg form. No matter, Sex Mix is sure to satisfy the FGTH/ZTT fanatics out there who must have every variation of their favorite songs.
