"If you don't dance, you will surely die. And those who do not die will be taken out and experimented upon!"
Like 'Brain Wrap' on the previous CD, this is a re-upholstery of a number off the original C.O.G. cassette - a song that was originally recorded back in 1992. The old version was a really foppish euro disco tune, peppered with great quotes like, "The coat, another Bob Mackie original!" "If we must die, let us die together - here on the dance floor!" and "are you an American?" It was sung by Kirk Madison, from inside a closet (!) where he had ensconsed himself to keep me from cracking him up and spoiling the take. The old version was also entirely synthesizer and drum machine.
This new version was the brainchild of Jeff King, who took the original version and almost completely rearranged it with industrial strength guitar on the choruses - a sort of 'Thrill Kill Kult' approach. Jeff used lots of sounds from his Yamaha DJX, which accounts for the differences in sound in this song on a lot of the drums and keyboards. When this was performed live, a 'D' tuning was used on the guitar and bass to give it an even heavier feel.
