the duration of Death in June’s lengthy career, Douglas P has shown
a penchant for releasing remixed and alternate versions of main album
tracks. In part "Abandon Tracks!" continues this ethos by drawing
together a collection of remixed & partially re-recorded versions,
compilation contributions, tracks originally released on limited edition
formats and two tracks that remained unreleased until now.
Statements from Douglas P indicated that the initial idea for this compilation
originated whilst trawling through his recorded archives during the infamous
legal battle with his former (and now defunct) distribution company: World
Serpent Distribution. Thus to this end some of the remixed & re-recorded
versions seem intent on rewriting Death in June’s history by entirely
erasing the prior contributions of former allies from WSD days.
That said, the alternate versions of various songs are certainly invigorating
for the Death in June completist, however of particular interest is the
unreleased track, ‘The Concrete Fountain’ consisting
of a beautiful sullen acoustic guitar and keyboard melody, underscored
with modern, almost dance oriented drum programming. Likewise the song
‘The Only Good Neighbour’, and the difficult to find
track ‘Unconditional Armistice’ make exceptionally
welcomed additions to this rarities compilation. Although not forming
new and current material from Douglas P, this is a worthy addition for
any Death in June fan.
