Voulez Vous La Machine – ABBA vs Pink Floyd

tbc aka Instamatic - Voulez Vous La Machine (ABBA vs Pink Floyd) mashup bootleg bastard pop cover

You never knew Björn & Benny, Agnetha & Anni-Frid had a progressive rock side did you? Here they team up in a large plexiglass pyramid with the `Floyd and Welcome you to the Master Scene, the Voulez Vous Machine, sil vous plait. (My pre-GCSE French is failing at this point monsewer)

And there’s something deliciously icy bout putting them over progressive rock….also the lyrics oddlly mesh with Welcome To The Machine, maybe from the other side, but they sound so robotic here that it feels like the Machine is talking:

“Ain’t no big decision (ah-ha)
You know what to do (ah-ha)
La question c’est voulez-vous
Voulez-vous…

…you know the rules, you know the game
Master of the scene
We’ve done it all before and now we’re back to get some more
You know what I mean

Actually disco and prog did crossover, usually via Alan Parson’s Project and naughty Italian disco booltegs and a few strange Mike Oldfield disco covers (yes stranger than Pink Project).

Even Soft Machine had a go? As did Can and of course famously Floyd themselves.

Fleetwood Mac vs Fleet Foxes / Philip Glass Animals

A double shot of downtempo punnery again for the Crumplbangers Discord Challenge – it’s the only reason I make mashups nowadays seemingly!

One Fleetwood Mac vs Fleet Foxes – a combo I am surprised has not been done before, and the clever pun of Philip Glass Animals, after the New York composer and the London artist.

Did someone say Fleetwood Mac? What would the Fox Say? Well he’d say Fleetwood Mac vs Fleet Foxes is the shiz. If rather horizontal.

Also some cultured Rime of the Ancient Mariner engravings by Gustav Dore as the artwork. Ooh fancy! If I ever do that Fleetwood Mac remix album I’ve been threatening for literal decades, this will be on it.

tbc aka Instamatic - Philip Glass Animals (Heatwaves In May) (Philip Glass & Paul Leonard-Morgan vs Glass Animals) mashup bootleg pun bastard pop downtempo soundtrack

And here is the Philip Glass vs Glass Animals downtempo mashup no-one was asking for! (Well the challenge did say genre clash was important, and nothing is more genre clash than modern classical /soundtrack vs EDM pop?).

Heatwaves is a surprising jam, with a very odd video about living and performing in a lockdown…yes the PTSD of that is basically staining all my work now, like a grain running through it all.
