Kodiak Moment 4: Best of Instamatic, Captain Obvious & tbc 2012 – 2020

Kodiak Moment 4: Best of Instamatic, Captain Obvious & tbc 2012 - 2020 cover mashups bootlegs bastard pop

And appropriately for the 4th of May, here’s the 4th volume of my best-of series ‘Kodiak Moment’ taking us up to the modern day – 2012-2020. Includes tracks from my last retirement which lasted a lot longer than this one, and even includes a Star Wars mashup as well (Star Wars Gurlz from 2015).

We even have three mashups from what I call ‘How To Mash In An Apocalypse’ series, about the lockdown and pandemic – and the first track that lead into the Black Block album.

For the first time we have the few of my viral hits in lossless quality and remastered – ‘Her Breath Is The Wind’ and the Captain Obvious swansong ‘Madonna Has A Kiki’ which still crops up in the oddest places still (a dance class video was my favourite). Most bar the newer tracks have been remastered, and there are three bonus tracks.

Download on Bandcamp or over at the Bootleg Archive.

Ghost Rats (B. Dolan vs Ghost vs Zeropoint)

Instamatic - Ghost Rats (B. Dolan vs Ghost vs Zeropoint) cover

Although this mashup of B.Dolan’s ‘Rats Get Fat’ and Ghost’s ‘Rats’ was originally created about the COVID-19 pandemic and started two months ago it seems oddly appropriate about #blackoutuesday and #blacklivesmatter and the riots going on in the States.

Compared to my last one my hope has become anger over the lockdown – it is a mashup about resistance and class war, that rats get fat when good men die, that we are not all in this together, that they don’t care about us, and some of us even less due to the colour of our skin. And given the Ghost lyric about cities burning it seems spookily prescient to the last few days.

Anyway there are two versions – the original rock demo which was hindered by the lack of a decent instrumental, and the ‘Ghostwave’ Synthwave Second Wave version which I think works better using a cover of Rats by Zeropoint.

Thanks go to @hinoirocks and Ian of The Lloydbrary for the help making this mashup.
