Boss Hog: Jaguar

Thirlwell remixed one version of this track (no mix name). The mix appears on Boss Hog's Whiteout CD/LP (2000 In The Red #68 US). From the CMJ New Music Report: "Of all the casualties of the great Universal merger of 1999, none seem happier to be emancipated from the trappings of big business than Boss Hog. The NYC scum rock scenesters celebrate a return to D.I.Y. freedom on their long-overdue third full-length. White Out zones in on the infectious faux-Stax grooves that propelled the finer points of the Hog's eponymous 1995 Geffen debut. The album also marks the debut of keyman Mark Boyce, formerly of the Philadelphia hip-hop crew the Goats. The enlistment of a who's-who of producers, including Andy Gill, Tore Johansson and Jim "Foetus" Thirlwell, as well as the band's growth and confidence as a whole, makes White Out Boss Hog's finest half-hour to date."
