Penal Colony Mix

As I wade my way through all of the remixes off the new Penal Colony album, I couldn't help but wonder where the band is among all the music. I can pick out the FLA, Leaetherstrip, Psychic TV, et. al., but Penal Colony seems to be absent from the mixes. This may seema bit harsh, but the remixes don't sound anything alike, even when it's the same track, the music totally originates from the band mixing the track. The exception to this is the track Penal Colony remixed themselves. It's the only track I can attempt to gauge the sound from. The true sound seems to be non-existent. The remixes are wonderful, but I can't begin to delve into the true Penal Colony sound, which leaves me wanting.

Penal Colony is:
Jason Hubbard - drums
Dee Madden - vocals
Chris Shinkus - bass
Andy Shaw - guitar
