M-802. “My Cat [Automatic Speed Remix]” by Jack Off Jill

After enjoying a relaxing Father’s day today, I decided to sit out on my lanai, have tall cold adult beverage, a fine cigar and write about music with a Chromebook. So onward to Track Six of 1998’s Covetous Creature we go. As with the last track, this remix is the Electric Dance Music (EDM) vein that was popular at the time. This could have very easily been popular track spun by DJs at your local dance club. In that regards, it really diminishes, if not complete erases any of the song’s Riot Grrrl cred.

Stepping back and evaluating the remix in the EDM Perspective, it is well suited for any DJ’s playlist even today. The fade-out with the one word repetition lends itself as the perfect transition into the next track in the set. In fact, I would play this track in between “Doctor?” by Orbital and “Internet Friends” by Knife Party.

I am just precocious like that.
