Further cementing just how far removed he's become from the Dig! portrayal, Newcombe casually brings up "a small remix project" he's been working on for the Dandy Warhols, whom the documentary painted as bitter rivals with the BJM. "It's for 'The Autumn Carnival,' from their new record," he says of the remix. "I did a total like, Depeche and Kraftwerk — but no samples; like '70s-style, just getting weird. Any chance I get to turn somebody else's band into Bronski Beat I take, pretty much."
