New Rusko single is anything but new

According to the Mad Decent blog, Rusko's "new" single Woo Boost is out at the end of this month. Yep, you read that right. They STILL haven't released that tune yet. There's building up hype and then there's building up hype before completely forgetting what you were doing, doing something else for a while and then resuming the task half-heartedly a year later.

I'm sorry, but is that not the worst idea ever? Not only has that track been out so long and played so many times that everyone hates it, but it's also been bootlegged so many times that everyone already has it. In fact, they bootlegged it, played it to death and deleted it all before the year was out.

So why this is being released at all is a mystery. The b-sides and remixes will have to be pretty fucking special to raise its value above that of the empty sleeve. In their defence, I suspect what happened was it got lost in the switch from Sub Soldiers to Mad Decent, but still. I mean, surely you'd just forget about it since no one's actually going to buy it.
