In the run up to the release of their upcoming album Again Into Eyes, though Mute on 12th September, London's S.C.U.M have remixed Spector's 'What You Wanted'. The group turn the straight-up post-punkish rock of the original into a taut, entirely darker sort of beast, guitars replaced with brutish low end and jarring drums. It's one of the best things we've heard from them so far.
