Sébastien Tellier Double Bill

tbc aka Instamatic - Silent Ritournelle (For Fletch) (Depeche Mode vs Sébastien Tellier - DJ Giac Reboot)

Another lost track, this time I didn’t want to seem like I was trying to crash in on the death of Fletch (Andy Fletcher) of Depeche Mode. I remade this 2008 mashup by DJ Giac for the podcast then forgot to post it…it’s been 6 months, I think enough time has passed.

`La Ritournelle is a track that has very deep meaning for me, and I’ve wanted to mash it and Tellier’s work for a long time but nothing worked – seems I did so twice as there are two Sebastian Tellier tracks that have never been posting actually, I found another one which I’m also posting here.

This is the other Sébastien Tellier track I did, around the same time actually. Not sure why I didn’t post it? Maybe it was too similar to my Marvin Gayle mashup which again is around that time.

This is a track from the Narco soundtrack he did – Le long de la rivière tendre which is really good, mixed with Marvin Gaye’s Mercy Mercy Me.

It’s the sister track to my other two ecological tracks – Turquoise Blues For A Dying Planet (The Quiet Joys Of Hexagons) and the video for What Glimpse Of Us – I will be posting the latter shortly.

It’s definitely influenced by one of my favourite mashups of all time -djrozroz’s La Ritournelle de Marvin.

Whispering Forests and Paranoid Androids

Hardcure was a ‘unhappy hardcore’ Cure project that never happened. This is the final version, but I’m posting the original demo as well cos they are radically different – the one I played at Crumplstock is the second version, the one you might have heard on Dunproofin’s streams is the demo.

BTW Whispering Grass is one of my favourite songs of all time, of course these two are from AInt Half Hot Mum, I still quote Winsor Davies all the time. It was supposed to be quite Crumpl but ended up quite….spooky? So I amplified that with some speech from Night of The Demon – also sampled by Kate Bush for Hounds of Love, fact fans! It’s apparently one of her favourite movies.

Whispering Forests and Paranoid Androids whispering forest

Hardcure was a ‘unhappy hardcore’ Cure project that never happened, you might have heard this version on Dunproofin’s stream; it was really a demo at this point, but I’m releasing both the demo and the final version cos they are radically different – the one I played at Crumplstock is the second version.

Whispering Forests and Paranoid Androids marvin paranoid

An epic mashup – Radiohead’s Paranoid Android mixed with the depressed robot that inspired that title from Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy – 3 songs from him in fact. Yes Marvin did several singles in the 80’s – well Stephen Moore did as Marvin.

I suspect someone might have done one of the tracks, I doubt they would have done all 3.

For the Crumplbangers Character Challenge – it was 2nd.

DJNoNo – Marvin The Paranoid Android (Marvin from Hitchhiker’s Guide To The Galaxy vs Radiohead)

And BONUS from another robot, a small less depressed red one, s this frankly silly DJNoNo Theme Song ffrom last year I never uploaded, intended as an intro to DJNoNo but got played at Crumplstock 10 so now uploading it. It’s silly and a bit OOK.

Leave Home For A Watermelon Tonight (Too Busy Edit) (Savoy Havana Band vs Chemical Brothers)

DJNoNo - Leave Home For A Watermelon Tonight (Too Busy Edit) (Savoy Havana Band vs Chemical Brothers) mashup crumplbanger crumple crumpl bastard pop soundclown cover

Again MrNoNo is too lazy to post this himself, so muggins here has to do it. He did leave a note:

“Brought to you by the Watermelon Marketing Board, why not leave home for a watermelon tonight? Exit Planet Pips, bring your girl a watermelon, or maybe your Chemical Brother some watermelon flavouring.”

No idea what that means.

Again for the 60+ years time difference Crumplbangers Discord Challenge, DJNoNo wandered in with some 78’s and a copy of Exit Planet Dust and made a Proper Old Skool Crumplbanger. There’s a track from 1925 – Savoy Havana Bandand 1995 – The Chemical Brothers – Leave Home, 70 years difference. And some TED Talk rabbiting on about being too busy…I think DJNoNo didn’t like his work being called that, so he got in early…They have TED Talks in Nantwich now?

“Fuck electroswing”, says Mr NoNo. Yeah he’s not a fan since those posh twats in suits took it over.

(This is the original song that the Bonzo Dog Band coverered)

Wish I Could Wake In September (COVID-19 Mashup – Pink Floyd vs Green Day vs Richard Hendrick)

Well there’s one good/bad* thing to the current events I have started making mashups again!
(*delete as necessary)

This is my current response to the coronavirus epidemic aka COVID-19, a complete nightmare and I want to just sleep til September and wish others were here in my isolation. Already had the Pink Floyd ‘Wish You Were Here’ (well a cover by London Orion Orchestra since no instrumental of the original exists) vs Green Day’s ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’, but then heard Richard Hendrick’s moving poem, ‘Lockdown’ and added him reading it on BBC Radio London over the phone….lends itself to radio noises, that. That poem gives me hope in a rather bleak mashup.

So remember to sing from your balconies, and listen to the birds beyond the hum and static of your thoughts.

Final Mashups #6 – Imperial Nanny (Star Wars vs Julie Andrews)

DJNoNo Imperial Nanny (John Williams vs Julie Andrews) mashup cover

And last but not least, here’s my second Star Wars mashup, this was started in 2005 as part of the ill-fated Boot In 60 Seconds project, but never really worked, was a bit of a car-crash. It was semi-released as part of that mix, and other places, but this is the final version.

It combines Spoonful of Sugar from the Disney movie Mary Poppins (topical!) with John Williams Imperial March theme, as Orbital and 2 Bad Mice as the droids you aren’t looking for!

Appropriate to end on something complete silly…Would love to say doing these has rekindled my love of mashups…but no, although fun to see these finally see the light of day, it’s also reminded me what a faff it is.

So that’s me out – bye! Thanks all for listening over the years.

(after Shepard Fairey)

OK I’ve been working on this mashup of Stereo MC’s vs Rolling Stones vs Benga vs Fun Boy 3 for a while – kind of a State of the Nation address in a mashup as regards how I felt in the run up to the US election, Georgia v. Russia, Iran and Iraq, Military Industrial Complex and various things…but history in the fact of Obama being elected president overtook me, so the paranoid worried bootleg seemed a bit at odds with the times.

So I’ve created two – one called (Fear) the full-length extended version with the Chris Rock intro, and a short radio version called (Hope) using Barack Obama’s recent speech in Chicago after he won the presidency – really they are different mashups, with a common basis.

Ground Shelter (Hope) Stereo MC’s ‘Ground Level’ vs Rolling Stones ‘Gimme Shelter’ vs Benga ‘Lightbulb’

Ground Shelter (Fear) – Stereo MC’s ‘Ground Level’ vs Rolling Stones ‘Gimme Shelter’ vs Benga ‘Lightbulb’ vs Fun Boy 3 – ‘Lunatics Have Taken Over the Asylum’

Apologies to Shepard Fairey for abusing his wonderful artwork; and love goes out to Ian Fondue who gave me some tips on an earlier version – hope it works Ian!

I did this one ages ago (in 2005) played it on the podcast as an exclusive (show 42 of course!) then never released it. Partly because it was an overused pella, and partly because I wasn’t happy releasing stuff at the time.

Fast forward to a few days ago, played it to a friend that went ‘wow’ and told me to release it…maybe everyone has gotten over the Dirrty Xtina overload 3 years later? Anyway listening back it’s actually very good!
