Oops! I did it again…

March 31, 2010

I really must keep up with this thing. This is only a test post for @michlan on twitter anyway, and I’ve no idea what sort of music she likes, although I think she may have mentioned going to see Scouting For Girls once, which is a tad worrying.

Anyway, Mashup Monday on a Wednesday, I’m afraid it’s one of mine again as I can’t work out how to embed soundcloud or fairtilizer on here. A really old one from 2004 with video by ThriftshopXL.

Mashup Mond…oh shit, it’s Tuesday

March 23, 2010

Due to various reasons I haven’t been around as much as I wanted to be, but I’m determined not to let this go the way of other blogs I’ve opened, so with a slight delay, it’s Mashup Monday! It’s probably a Monday on Mars, or one of Jupiter’s moons, anyway.

This little beauty is by French bootlegging genius Sugamotor, sticking Rihanna’s erectile dysfunction anthem Rude Boy over Placebo. And it’s a bit good:

More stuff coming soon, honest!

Mashup Monday

March 15, 2010

Normally I hate the word “mashup” – when I started doing them in my bedroom twenty-odd years ago they were called “bootlegs” if they were called anything, and when releasing them over the interweb in 2003 the term “bastard pop” was also being thrown about – but like it or not, “mashup” has become the preferred term for two or more records mixed together. Nobody really uses the term “bastard pop” any more, and “bootleg” confuses the hell out of people who come looking for old Hawkwind concerts recorded by Thomas Edison on shellac discs in 1873 (or something).

Mashup Monday, then. Every Monday I’m going to post a mashup by someone – either a video, or a streaming player, or something that enables you to listen to said mashup without buggering off somewhere else. Sometimes if I’m feeling lazy they’ll be old ones of mine, like this from 2005 (I think) – it’s LFO vs The Communards, released under the nom de boot of Fudge Tools.
