The Streets - 'Weak Become Heroes' (King Krule remix)

A woozy remix

The Streets' Mike Skinner has poked fun at Radiohead's recent pricing policy for 'In Rainbows', assuring fans that the merchandise for his TV show Beat Stevie will be 'reassuringly expensive'. How nice of you Mike... Pic: Danny North
It’s 10 years since The Streets’ debut album came out and to celebrate, Archy Marshall has given ‘Weak Become Heroes’ a woozy remix, complete with a barely audible rap of his own. It’s OK, but has this track really aged that well? The idea of a life-changing ecstasy epiphany in 2012 just seems so… old hat.
