1997's Socks Drugs & Rock & Roll puts six songs from Buffalo Daughter's album Captain Vapour Athletes and "The Legend of the Yellow Buffalo" single into the capable hands of Alec Empire, Money Mark, U.N.K.L.E., and Stock, Hausen & Walkman for remixing and general tweaking. Empire's take on "Dr. Moog" features his trademark rapid-fire breakbeats and intense atmosphere; Stock, Hausen & Walkman's "Daisy Pushed Up" has a sunny, loopy vibe. Money Mark's version of "Big Wednesday" boosts the guitars and keyboards but leaves the original mostly intact. The different approaches and results on Socks Drugs & Rock & Roll present an additional view into Buffalo Daughter's creativity.
