Ahead of the release of their 20th anniversary album RemixedThe Body have shared sonic agitator Ren Schofield aka Container’s pummeling, acid-tinged rework of “Ten Times A Day Everyday A Stranger”. Schofield focuses in on the visceral, noisy textures at the start of the track, reconfiguring vocal samples of Kristin Hayter (Lingua Ignota), strings and bass into pounding jackhammer rhythms. Remixed will be released digitally on October 11th, with a limited-edition LP out October 25th, pressed on white/black swirl vinyl and containing an oversized double-sided poster showing nearly all the shirts The Body have ever made up to this fall.  

As a former Providence RI resident, Schofield met The Body through his involvement in the city’s burgeoning experimental music scene. On his love of the duo, he explains: “For me, it was a pleasure and an honor to do a remix for Lee and The Body, and I thank them for the opportunity. In 2016 when they played at Aurora in Providence, doing a mostly (if not entirely) electronic set, an alienated former fan yelled “You used to be real!” in genuine anger as his girlfriend led him away, inconsolable over the bands new direction. This man was a fool, as The Body — clearly — could never be anything but real.”

Throughout their two decades of making music together as The Body, drummer Lee Buford and guitarist/vocalist Chip King have been consistently releasing the most forward-thinking work in heavy music, both on their own and in collaboration with likeminded artists like ThouFull of HellUniformThe Haxan Cloak and The Assembly of Light Choir. Emblematic of their love for the collaborative process, The Body’s 20th anniversary record brings together remixes from friends, artists who the duo have influenced or been influenced by, and artists with whom the band share a mutual respect, including Moor MotherMoss of Aura (Future Island’s Gerrit Welmers), Lingua Ignota and more.
