Remixes By For Greater Good now available as FREE download!

After the work and effort of the Remixed and Reworked series, we were looking at our Bandcamp page and discovered an album that went a bit in a shady corner… so we thought it was time to revamp it: the Remixes by For Greater Good!

Unlike the R&R, where other bands covered our music, in this album we did the opposite, FGG remixed songs by other bands.

Recently, we sent some mails around, and everyone agreed to put these remixes as free downloads! You can download every track for free, or download the whole album in one go!

You can find remixes here by these nice bands: WUMPSCUT, GENERIC, NO MORE, PSY’AVIAH, LIQUID G., SAY HELLO TO MY KIDS and DARK CONTROL OPERATION!

As this is a nice gesture by the bands we remixed, please show your appreciation by visiting their websites, listen to their music and buy what you like!

The HOT 2011 Aftermath

Well, this was interesting! This has been the earliest FGG gig ever, at 1400 hours in bright daylight. Not our natural biotope at all. Yet, it was a very good one, we received some very nice comments afterwards, and the atmosphere was top!

A big thank you to the Homerecording crew, for this unique opportunity. The event was a real winner! Also thanks to all people attending the performance, and lots of familiar faces for supporting us!

Loads of thanks to our new guests on stage: Peter DK on found-percussion and Peter G playing bass clarinet, clarinet and Breton shepherds’ flute. And of course thanks to Raya, singer with Antwerp Faerie-electro band Dark Poem, lending her lovely voice to some of our songs.

This was the first time we had our new sound technician behind the desk, welcome Mark Burghgraeve! He had the difficult task to lead all this mayhem into battle and he did an awesome job! We’d like to thank our former soundman Wim for all his help at past concerts, and let it be known that we’ll meet each other again soon and often, thanks Wim!

Setlist was: Le Jugement Du Roi En Jaune – Orbit – Love Your Terrorist – Insane Asylum – Synchronism – Rush Hour – DTFN – Distress – Ihtyll
