Sleep Deprivation

I vaguely understand why groups leave the dancier and lengthier stuff for their 12" releases -- it's the format, man! -- but really, why the hell can't these mixes wind up on LPs?

Since the vinyl of Simian Mobile Disco's (MySpace) "Sleep Deprivation" surfaced way back in the oh-seven, I've been choosing this cut (the longer, cooler, radder one) over the album's.

Dig it. I'm suffering from the title's malady.

Also, because I'm feeling itchy, grab the Japanese release of Alive 2007's bonus track, a mash-up of T. Bangalter's "Together," "One More Time," and plenty of other greatness. Again, why didn't this make it to the album?

I've been looking for this version of Sleep Deprivation, thanks.

To previous commenter, calling people "my friend" is really douchey, unless English is not your native language and its heavily accented and kind of awkward. Then its ok, but otherwise its always condescending at worst or fratty at best. This time you were like, eh, my friend, i know something you don't. You're right, it is on the second disc, thats why its labeled Alive 2007 Bonus CD, detective anonymous.

Anyway, I got off subject there, but if you walk away with one thing from this blog, it should be that you cannot call people "my friend" especially in print, what are you fucking retarded?
