RC 265: The KB Show

A show that’s been 4 years in the making, after the sell-out Kate Bush 15 night ‘tour’ it seemed the right time to finish this long-promised show (especially as I couldn’t afford the £300-1000 for a ticket, so this is my consolation). From mashups, remixes and covers, it covers the many decades of music from Cathy.

(I couldn’t find the photographer of this picture from 1979, so apologies if anyone gets upset with it’s use, let me know and I’ll change it…it’s impossible to find Creative Commons images of Kate – especially as she banned any recording devices or phones from her gigs :-( )

Dunproofin’s Grate Compilation

Dunproofin’s genius gets a lot of love on the podcast (he did the remix that is the current intro music) and here on the blog, and he’s released a compilation of his 50 best remixes and mashups over the years, called 50 Golden Grates.

It’s not cheesy, it’s full of golden slices of fried gold such as his FU2 Lady Sovereign remix and Casbah Wonder (The Clash vs Stevie Wonder) a regular in my sets for years, Electro Sandman (a remix of Metallica) which I was going to play in Saarbrucken but got beaten to, Groove Is In The Girls (Dee-Lite vs Prodigy), Lily & The Robot (Lily Allen vs Royskopp), Only Mashups Can Break Your Heart (St Etienne, U2 and Bowie), Britney mashups bordering on musical stalking (see Slave To Fashion vs Bowie and Gimme More Pay TV if you don’t believe me, the latter is like a Goblin horror soundtrack!) several I’ve made videos for (Pjanoo Dance (Bowie va Eric Prydz), Reordered (Eric Prydz again with New Order)), some classic E-Jitz madness and two current favourites which I must have missed or might be new: Just Don’t Care (Grandmaster Flash & The Furious 5 vs Corinne Bailey Rae) and Don’t Mess which is Neneh Cherry vs Swedish House Mafia.

And I’ve mirrored the file here so you don’t have to mess with slow filesharing sites! Recommended.

RC 247: Jungle Revival

Lion image originally by Nick Johnson (CC Attribution 2)

Sad lion is sad…but happily for him but maybe not his direction finding skillset, jungle is back, at least on this podcast. Alla dem junglist massif, as they used to say. No idea what it meant, but it sounded tres cool at the time, soundbwoy. Or Mr Sound Man if older? Or younger – SoundToddler? Sound-non-gender-specific-person? That’s sorted for the 10’s, if politically correct ragga catches on, I’m in there.

Also some future garage, some angry industrial, electro, funk, rants about white privilege (umm like using ragga slang in an incredibly white fashion? – Irony Ed), breakcore, electro, Japanese cartoon music, mashups and songs about Stonehenge. What more could you want?

Okay who said ‘a decent podcast!’ at the back there? I’m waiting….

Why do lions get lost in the jungle? Err, I don’t know, probly because their paws are too big for their TomToms? Who do I look like, Chris Packham or something? (121Mb, 2:03)

Def Con Wan video

New video for E-Jitz cover of Pop Will Eat Itself’s ‘Def Con One’, soon to be released on Prankmonkey. It’s a tribute to 80’s scratch video and video art pioneers such as George Snow, Gorilla Tapes, Invisible Television and the like, and my old Milk Lab art degree work, so delved into my VHS archive for this one, even did some VHS glitchage on Watchmen!

Includes bits of War Games, various VHS bits, Watchmen, Listzomania and a video cast of millions. Probably the best video I’ve done in a long while.
