Straiph’s original, “Barry No Be Long” (here), is a brief vocal cutup (under two minutes) with the sort of wobbly, looping undercurrent that generally accompanies film scenes depicting mounting mental incapacity, only to erupt into a hard bit of industrial pop. The edit, “Barry Will Be long (Fisk Industries remix)” (here), stretches the track to some three times its initial length, milking those voices for all their haunting content, and discarding with the first version’s headphone-shredding static in favor something more soothing, more clubby.
