Yes in time for Christmas – it’s a new remastered version of Losing My Sledge by TBC Poundsystem (myself and Jeb 50 Pound Note) – a Xmas cover version & mashup of LCD Soundsystem’s Losing My Edge – this time with remastered/remixed audio, and funky dancing Santa lipsync video with pink tinsel, fairy lights and other kitsch campness! Those with long memories will remember this from 2006 but not sure I posted it here – well here it is in much better remixed form!
Mashup also features MJ’s Don’t Stop If You Get Enough & Lipps Inc’s Funkytown, as well as sleighbells by moi and vocals by Jeb. It’s the first net release from Jeb’s Kuma-Chan records, KUMA 1000. More to come from Kuma-Chan – watch this space (well the links down below).
PRESSIES! Download the remixed 2012 track with a new dub instrumental b-side and amazing 4 page artwork by Jeb! Spread – upload – share – annoy neighbours, play over the turkey, dance like a santa-loon etc.

As premiered in the latest podcast, this mashup isn’t my idea at all – Jeb Edwards aka DJ 50PoundNote asked me to make it as part of his set. He originally heard it on a friends tape from the 80’s but couldn’t find the original whitelabel (or it might have been mixed live?) so this is my recreation! It’s not a new combo bar The Clash bit, but the other combos I’ve heard are too fast or just don’t work. I think this works as an old-skool summer mashup – shame there isn’t any sun at the moment!
Obviously it’s Heaven 17’s Let Me Go vs Arthur Baker’s Rockers Revenge project ‘Walking on Sunshine’ with a little bit of Magnificent Seven by The Clash.
