On February 7th, the Duke Spirit released the deluxe edition of their latest album Bruiser, which features newly remixed bonus tracks.

Singer Liela Moss says that the sultry and sinister remix that synthpop pioneer Gary Numan made for "Procession" was the result of a chance meeting and a good cup of tea. "I made such an absolutely fantastic cuppa that Gary asked if he could join my band. I had to let him down gently, and so he suggested he could do a remix to appease him for the time being, and the rest is history," she says.

The more electronic remix still keeps up the track's rock vibe, and Liela shares "we love his reworking of the track, and are in awe of his wizardry. He has turned 'Procession' into a devious, sinister ghost-train of a ride."

“Money For Nothing”

Dire Straits | 1984

Mark Knopfler wrote this song with Sting, and it wasn’t without controversy. The Dire Straits frontman's original lyric used the word “faggot” to describe a singer who got their “money for nothing and their chicks for free.” Even though the slur was edited out in many versions, the band, and Knopfler, still took plenty of criticism for the term. “I got an objection from the editor of a gay newspaper in London--he actually said it was below the belt,” Knopfler told Rolling Stone. Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
