Aphex Twin Remix Of ''heroes'' Reissued

on March 25, 2003

We can be Heroes, for ever and ever...

Released in the US today (yesterday elsewhere) is the double CD Aphex Twin: 26 Mixes for Cash. This finally makes available, at a reasonable price, the Aphex Twin Remix of "Heroes". The track originally had a limited release in 1997 as a free 3" CD with Japanese pressings of the "Heroes" Symphony by Philip Glass. (See above)

Personally I love this version, I honestly think it's a beautiful re-working which marries together the original Bowie vocal with the Glass orchestral version, and then gets shoved in to the Aphex Twin blender by Richard D James.

We asked you "From which song in the Ziggy Stardust Motion Picture is the silhouette of Ziggy in the image above taken from?"

Well, this certainly seemed to fox a fair few of you. In fact, almost half of you answered incorrectly.
