As a commenter mentioned in a post on March 5th, “Remember ten years ago, when “sounds like Roni Size” was a compliment?” Even if you can’t remember, Mr. Size himself remembers. He’s bringing back the “classic” album New Forms–which as a reminder won the Mercury Music Prize over OK Computer and Fat Of The Land–in a re-edited form.
The re-edit mysteriously adds tracks instead of subtracting them, which makes me wonder if the British have a different definition of the term “edit.” Either way, Size adds “The generation of those who missed it will be able to appreciate the album with the new coat of armour I have added to the original tracks.” This news makes me sad on several levels, but largely due to the fact that apparently an entire generation has passed since 1997.
