 I still don't think 'discopunk' ever existed anywhere but in the minds of lazy rock crits. I kid, I kid. You're right about Juan Maclean, and doubly right that "You Can't Have It Both Ways" is one of the best things (maybe THE best?) that DFA's been involved in. See if you can track down the original single -- it's over 9 minutes compared to the last comp's paltry four.

 Gavin, way ahead of you--got the 12" almost a year ago. It's seriously incredible.

 Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, but Liquid Liquid recorded "Bellhead" in back in the early 1981 or so. So unless this is a remake or remix of some sort, it ain't new at all.

 Sorry, just to clarify -- "Bellhead" is an old song, but it is a new recording of it. Sorry for the confusion.
