More cowbell on "Alsatian Cousin" from remastered "Viva Hate"?

Discussion in 'General Discussion archive 2012 (read-only)' started by Anonymous Bosch, Apr 13, 2012.

  1. Is it just my old ears hearing things, or do I now hear cowbell in "Alsatian Cousin"? If so, then give me the un-remastered version any day.

    Excuse my ignorance, but what is "cowbell"?

    I don't do coffee. I do Discos though. See you there.

    What a coincidence; I don't do discos.

    You don't need that accent on the first e in utilisee. Or the second one, for that matter. Or the e at the end of musicale. But thanks. I didn't know it was so simple!

    No Discos? Bit like this site. They don't like Discos either. Death to Discos, they all shout, Death to Discos!

    Farewell, Skylarker. Farewell Billy Scissors. Don't forget me, my massive appendage or my stripper friend. And if Jukebox Jury is still visiting these parts, I hope you are well.

    Au revoir.

    They've hidden all my posts and I can't send PMs. People are claiming that I have a small penis and am a "faggot" and that I'm not funny. Time to go.

    Don't let the bastards grind you down.

    No, your ears aren't deceiving you, there is a cowbell in the remastered version. It's telling, though, that people are now actively straining to hear things in the remastered version that they hadn't heard in the original recording. If you pay attention, the cowbell is plainly audible on the 1988 version.

    This just underscores the point that 'remastered' albums are no more than a pathetic attempt by music corporations and their employees (e.g. Morrissey) to afford their products a longer shelf-life.

    An instrumental subtlety that was barely audible previously and is now as clear as day underscores the superfluousness of remasters?

    Yeah, it confused me too. We need lindsey1151 in here with her 120 IQ to break it down for us of inferior intellect...
     
  15. You're probably right. I'll have to listen to it again. Thanks.

    Amen.

    Clearly heard from 0.21, I think the answer in this case is 'yes'

    No, the fact that fans feel moved to find differences between the two versions of the song (which turn out, in fact, to not exist) underscores the superfluousness of remasters. The cowbell is equally audible on both editions of the record.
