You know this is Richard's record and if he wanted to turn it into an electronica record that's certainly his right. Personally, I never found anything wrong with the original version but it would be fun to hear a new one.
I'm kinda confused about the rhytmn tracks being used because if they were the same as the original record Quine could be used. Marc Ribot is a great replacement, I think. One of my favorite guitarists and certainly in style of Quine too.
