Siouxsie the fliouxsie is toting her iouxsie and making me feel a bit wiouxsie.

May 30, 2010

If I had any friends near to where I live, I’d go out drinking with them. I don’t, so I chop up bits of other people’s records instead.

Here’s tonight’s effort:

10000 Spoons – Uzi & The Banshees by 10000spoons

I thought of the title halfway through uploading it. Can’t be bothered to change the filename or id3 tags, you can do it yourself if you want.

The Glitchy and Scratchy Shoooooooow

A new alias, an old Squarepusher track and a couple of hours playing with a 50 Cent acapella and the Glitch VST plugin = this beast:

The Glitchy and Scratchy Show – Dormant Bulbous Chirp by 10000spoons

Monty, you terrible…

May 2, 2010

Woo, an update. For those of you who don’t know, I like to put tunes on top of other tunes. I heard the Commodore 64 version of the Monty On The Run soundtrack by Rob Hubbard the other day* and, being me, decided to put loads of old rap/R’n’B acapellas over the top. More hackneyed than the E8 postal district, but hey:

If you prefer irritating fake gangster twunts from Leicester singing through their nose over the top of sea shanties, on the other hand…

And staying with the nautical theme – well, it’s short, anyway:

My copy of Acid Pro 4 finally broke so that’s all from me for now.

*Monty On The Run – classic British 8-bit platform game. Rob Hubbard – 8-bit composer for the Commodore 64. Commodore 64 – 28-year-old computer, not as good as the Spectrum but with better sound. Do keep up at the back.

I created a mO.N.stE.r

April 8, 2010

Yes, yes, I know, it’s been an absolute dog’s age since my last update. I’ve mostly been busy with family stuff but have found time to listen repeatedly to Yeasayer‘s brilliant new album, Odd Blood. The single O.N.E. has been getting some pretty heavy airplay on Radio 6 Music, and it’s not even the best thing on the album (current favourite track – the David-Sylvian-goes-raving Love Me Girl, but it’s all good).

Anyway as the single version of of O.N.E. contains an instrumental I thought I’d throw together a bootleg, with indie disco favourites The Automatic providing the vocals (and a cheeky guitar solo). If I’m going to carry on doing these things I might as well use stuff I like, eh? Oh and by the way, I’m now Lee Spoons for all future productions – new decade and all that, plus I was fed up with people inserting commas and removing zeroes into 10000.

Have a listen/download below or go to my soundcloud page:

There’s also a mediafire link here in case the soundcloud download exceeds 100 (I can dream, eh?)

Right, must get some sleep, Bootie London tomorrow! Very much looking forward to seeing some old and new faces and in particular a DJ set by The Kleptones, whose Uptime/Downtime is another strong contender for my album of the year…
