RC 252: A Crumplebang Christmas

Crumplebang! A very silly Facebook conversation invented the term ‘Crumplebanger’ for some even sillier sort of mashups, and scarily it seems to now be a Real Thing so here’s some Christmas and non-festive Crumplebangers ahoy! As well as some of my faves looking back on 2013 and beyond.

Christmas crackers go out to Joel Crookes, Ian Fondue, Mr Fab of Music for Maniacs for A Merry Chrismash, Santastic 8, Jim Pilchard, Worst Records In The World, Junk Shop Juke Box and the Crumplebang crowd for suggesting or posting some of the tracks in this show.

Also this must be the first Xmas show in many years to NOT feature my sleigh bells…well I had to get my money’s worth *ahem*

RC 225: Babylondon 2012

Welcome to Gridlock! They call it murder…

A state of the capital address about London, 2012, Babylon and ting. Righteous music from roots reggae to dubstep, soul, rock and gothabilly & psychobilly (and two Orchestras  and  some funky dubby jaxz from Miles Davis!) celebrating Jamaica’s 50th birthday and Red, Gold and Green rather than Bronze, Gold and Silver.

“The man who worships silver and gold, shall surely, surely, surely lose his own soul, Then fade away”. (and a track I forgot to play on this podcast! Bless you Junior Byles).

I don’t play enough Jamaican music so inspired by David Rodigan here is a dubtastic podcast.

RC 224: GYBO RIP Part One – The New Skool

Sadly as mentioned on the blog Get Your Bootleg On – the 10 year old mashup forum is to close – certainly the bootleg forums are now gone. Here’s the first part of commemorative shows (sounds like a Franklin Plate: here buy the 2002 Mashup Edition with Extra Goldleaf Missy!) where I’ve taken the first 5-6 pages of GYBO and featured the tracks there – just to show the creativity and diversity of the place. And to give GYBO a sort of wake.

What I thought might be difficult to find good stuff I eventually had the opposite problem – too many good mashups! This also harks back to the first Radio Clash podcasts back in 2004-6 which were originally an all mashup.

As mentioned in the show I need your help for part 2 – which will be the ‘Old Skool’ edition. What was the first mashup you heard on GYBO? Or the favourite one you’ve heard in these 10 years? Usual address, or try the contact form above or the comments below.
