The Sheffield trio's new full-length collects remixes by Autechre, Redshape and Slam.
With the political tenor of titles like "CCTV Nation" and "You're Only SQL," Further Vexations signaled a new tone for the Sheffield production team. Indeed, the group themselves described the album as being concerned with "personal freedoms being surrendered under the banner of 'for your own safety'...Biometrics and the World Wide Databases being the latest inventions to save us for ourselves." The record was preceded by a related 12-inch, Vexing EP, and followed the next year by The Vexing Remixes. Final Collected Vexations pulls in all of the tracks from these two accompanying records, plus Slam's remix of "CCTV Nation" from earlier this year. All in all, the CD includes three productions by The Black Dog themselves, plus remixes by Autechre, Claro Intelecto, Redshape and Silicone Soul.
