Remixed Noise 
Caroline True Records has just re-released the Punk-Funk / Leftfield classic 'Faith' by Manicured Noise as 'Faith 08' in a limited edition of 500 copies 7" single and digital download (via iTunes and other digital stores).

Catalogue number: CTRUE9
Tracklisting: A: Faith (Pocketknife's Straight Line Edit), B: Faith (Original Version)
Release date: Monday 1 September 2008

'Faith' was acclaimed on its original PRE Records release in 1980, its tough Northern backbeat acknowledging an indebtedness to the days of the Twisted Wheel and the Wigan Casino.

Lauded NYC producer and DJ Pocketknife whittles the track into a totally floor-friendly form with his Straight Line Edit, whilst the original version is on the flip side.

Pocketknife has creatively remixed and re-edited a wide range of artists from folkster Joanna Newsom, through to Feist and Paul Simon. The recent Tambourine Dream 12" drew much applause.

The 7" release trails a remix EP set to appear later in the year which will feature radical and groovy reworks of Manicured Noise tracks from Fred Deakin (Lemon Jelly), Jon Da Silva (The Haçienda) Cousin Cole (Pocketknife's DJ NYC associate), Jon Kennedy (Grand Central) and Steven Walsh (Manicured Noise).
