On the heels of David Lynchs hugely successful sophomore full length, The Big Dream, comes a very limited edition 12-inch, Bad the John Boy. While technically this track qualifies as a non-album or bonus track, Dean Hurley, Lynchs producer had this to say about the song: it wasnt really recorded with the LP in mind, but it was done around the end of last year when the bulk of the album was being made. It was earmarked for something else entirely, but that thing didnt happen in a way that required the song... so up until now, it was ‚a song with no home.
Complimenting Lynchs left-of-center A-side, the B-side proudly features a Venetian Snares remix of the albums title track. Despite the fact that Canadian electronic musician Aaron Funk has been known for reinventing breakcore, with this remix he breathes a completely new approach into the song, turning it into something far from your typical dance remix. Hurley describes this track as, music for the end crawl of a bootlegged sci-fi/horror film that you borrowed from your friends older brother and caused you to realize for the first time that you were actually scared in broad daylight.
