Couldn't Get Arrested "Nix Mix"

  • Back in the days of vinyl records, when I felt like I had to have everything Genesis-related (but couldn't afford to buy it all), I briefly had the 12" single with the remixes of "Acting Very Strange" and "Couldn't Get Arrested."


    At the time I had no idea that this remix of "Couldn't Get Arrested" was called the "Nix Mix" because it was "Nick's Mix." I assumed that it was called this because most of the lead vocal had been omitted (i.e., "nixed"). I even used this description later for a similar remix I heard elsewhere. And I still think it would be a good term for that kind of remix!

    FOR MAXIMUM EFFECT THIS TRACK SHOULD BE LISTENED TO AS LOUDLY AS POSSIBLE WITH AS MUCH TREBLE AND BASS AS YOUR SYSTEM CAN MUSTER. NOT TO BE PLAYED TO PEOPLE WITH HEART CONDITIONS OR THOSE IN A SEVERELY HALLUCOGENIC STATE OF MIND.
