Monster Magnet preview revamped version of Last Patrol

Monster Magnet have issued "No Paradise For Me" as a preview to “Milking The Stars: A Reimagining Of Last Patrol”, due for release on November 18.

The project sees new interpretations of some of the material featured on 2013’s “Last Patrol” album, rounded out with four new songs and two live tracks.

"This was a happy experiment for me,” says leader Dave Wyndorf. “It's not a re-mix record by the current definition. It's more like Last Patrol in a "what if?" style alternate reality. What if these songs were recorded in 1968? What would happen if I turned a pretty song into an angry one? How would adding creepy organs and
Mellotrons affect the emotional vibe of a song? These are just a few of the questions that roll around in my head when I write and record any album but this time I decided to actually answer them with fully fleshed out, recorded and mixed examples”.

“The process actually created new songs,”
he added. “That's the icing on the cake for me. New sounds, new vocals, different instruments and arrangements make for a weird 1960's vibe totally apart from Last Patrol which was fun for Phil, Bob, Garrett, mixer Joe Barresi and myself to explore.”

“Finally, there's expanded versions of the songs "Last Patrol" and "Three Kingfishers" as recorded live at the AB club in Belgium, 2014,” Wyndorf explains. “Both those songs were re-arranged for "maximum rock and psych" before we hit the road last year and feature the debut performance of new Magnet bassist, Chris Kosnik. Personally, I think they beat the original versions. Rock on!"
