Tanz Mit Laibach (EP)

In anticipation of a forthcoming Laibach Album* (Volk, due Oct. 23rd), I present Tanz Mit Laibach, the advance single from 2003's WAT. Tanz was Laibach's answer to George Bush's New World Order - or was it? As usual, you can't take Laibach product at face value. They apparently mock authority systems and methods by imitating and assimilating them. Here they praise German/American relations (and namecheck D.A.F. in the credits) with the frightening couplets:
Amerikano Freunde,
und Deutscher Kamerad,
wir tanzen gut zussamen,
wir tanzen nach Bagdad!
Stylistically the song sounds a lot like DAF's Der Mussolini and also Der Sherriff, their own Gulf War indictment. Lyrics also mention the dictator characters from Chaplin's The Great Dictator (Ado Hinkel, Benzino Napoloni). Included on this single are four rather radical remixes of the song by Slovene DJs Temponauta, Zeta Reticula and others .

EINS, ZWEI, DREI, VIER (@320 kbps)
re-upped on 10/14 (megaupload)

* I plan on upping a few rare Laibach items until the new album is out. Hopefully no one is too offended by them. Even if some folks 'get' Laibach's act, I also understand that their look, imagery and even lyrics can offend some, especially those of you in the EU. I feel that way with some Death-folk and Darkwave stuff that use Germanofilia and Nazi motifs as an overall look/sound.
Thanks for understanding.

I think I might have everything, but I'm not sure.
Thanks so much Champaloux!
You've made my gloomy monday so much more bearable!

Do you mean that VOLK is the LAST Laibach album, as in their won't be any more?
I had that feeling about WAT, as it was so self-referential and the title track sounded like a swan song.

Hey Champaloux - you wouldn't happen to have Titan (300,000V.K.) would you?

I have't read or heard anywhere that Volk is the last - maybe Anon meant 'latest'.
I'm a huge fan too, but I have to say Volk hasn't had me jumping for joy. It's pastoral and ambient and low key - no doubt the influence of their co-writers Silence - but I love the bombast and wagenerian sound and while I'll persevere with Volk, I really don't like it much at the moment.

Ditto what you said, Curious.
I was hoping for something different from their last two, but not expecting this. There isn't any one particular strong track, in my opinion.
I am mildly curious (no pun intended) what the Anglia remixes will sound like. I know a lot of recent Laibach fans will not like this very much.
Perhaps disappointment is their newest device.

I'm also hoping that some remixes might bring out a little of the (melo)drama and excitement that's so lacking in these songs. The lytical content is as ambiguous and dense as ever, but I miss the menace and threat that's usually so obvious.
I love being aurally beaten up and this whole album is sending me to sleep - I almost wish I hadn't bothered buying gig tickets for Novemeber!
Noticed that Rossiya is practically a cover of 'Go West' by the Village People/Pet Shop Boys.

Having liked Laibach almost from the start, I'm quite used to having moments like this though!!
