Manic Street Preachers frontman JAMES DEAN BRADFIELD has remixed Regular Fries new single, a collaboration with rapper KOOL KEITH titled ‘SUPERSONIC WAVES (COKE AND SMOKE)’, nme.com can reveal.

Released on September 25 through JBO, the single also features remixes from Lo-Fidelity Allstars as well as the original mix by Steve Dub, the Chemical Brothers collaborator.

Bradfield has long been a fan of the Fries’ music and had intended to contribute to their debut album ‘Accept The Signal’, but his Manics schedule prevented him from doing so.

Speaking to nme.com, Fries keyboard player Andy Starke explained: “He’s always said that he definitely wants to do something. He’s a big Kool Keith fan and it just seemed the obvious thing to do it.

“He took a couple of days out from recording the new album and did it. The mix is pretty amazing – he’s just stripped down all the music and left Keith’s rap on it and put guitars on it. It’s got a typical JDB guitar solo on it.”

The video for ‘Supersonic Waves (Coke And Smoke)’ will feature Kool Keith with the Regular Fries and will be shot in London and Los Angeles. The band are hoping that one of the graphics team from the recent ‘Mission: Impossible 2’ movie will be working on the promo.

‘Supersonic Waves (Coke And Smoke)’ is taken from Regular Fries’ second album ‘War On Plastic Plants’, released on October 9. The album was recorded in New York State and London and co-produced by the band along with Dave Fridmann (Flaming Lips, Mercury Rev), Steve Dub and Jagz Kooner (Sabres Of Paradise, Primal Scream).
