Solar First (Lorde vs Bobby Goldsboro)

Solar First lorde solar power bobby goldsboro summer first time mashup bootleg bastard pop cover

A nostalgic mashup for the end of summer, and originally made for Useo’s Summer Booty but not finished in time – so doubly fashionably late for the beach party!

Solar Power meets Bobby Goldsboro’s The First Time, a forgotten classic from 1973. Even has the same hint of menace/weirdness at the end like the original Solar Power track.

Toxic Love Shack Skank (Britney Spears vs B-52’s)

Toxic Love Shack Skank mashup bootleg bastard pop remix Britney Spears Toxic Bluebeaters B-52's Love Shack Thriftshop XL reboot

Purely out of the blue I decided to recreate Thriftshop XL’s Toxic Love Shack bootleg from 2004. Remember that? I’m sure everyone has forgotten it by now.

Anyway I have never done a B-52’s – Love Shack nor a Britney Spears – Toxic mashup *clutch pearls – I kno rite?* so with this mashup I put that right forthwith. Using The Bluebeater’s excellent ‘One Drop’ ska version of Toxic, with the original vocals for a ska/dubby summer jam.

Oh and FREE BRITNEY (well seems like she is, but who knows by the time this gets published – btw I am writing this in advance as I’ll be on holiday when this goes out). (Also might be why the player isn’t visible as I will try to switch it to public on some remote cliff somewhere – but might not get any signal!)

High & Dry Feeling (Bo Burnham vs Radiohead)

Lewis Wake’s has released ‘Outside’ a mashup album of songs from Bo Burnham’s moving (if tonally weird) Netflix special Inside.

I was surprised my favourite song ‘That Funny Feeling’ wasn’t included (I like it so much it’s featured on the next podcast, the list show #2), so I’ve given it the Radiohead rock treatment.

Again, a personal mashup about alienation, state of the world….and mental health.

Taylor Swift vs Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince – Instamatic on Summer Booty 2021

Taylor Swift vs Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince - Instamatic Summertime Shake mashup bootleg bastard pop

Just a reminder I have a track on this year’s Summer Booty from DJ Useo – very proud of it, it’s called ‘Summertime Shake’ and it’s Taylor Swift’s ‘Shake It Off’ vs DJ Jazzy Jeff & Fresh Prince Kool and the Gang sampling ‘Summertime’ – the whole 3 album set is good, a lot of summer jams (and one winter jam ;-( ) – you can download it here https://audioboots.org/Albums/SB2021/

Useo asked me to be on the album which is really kind, but nothing came to me until the night of the deadline. I was going through tracks for last week’s Crumplbangers challenge and left Summertime playing while I was listening to Shake It Off and went ‘hold on…this works!’. I am a massive Kool & The Gang fan (I even own a 7″ of Jungle Boogie, blame Pulp Fiction for that) and Summertime is basically Summer Madness so it was Kool and the Gang by proxy for me..

You can see the cover I made for it above.

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 Band – I’m Gonna Bring A Watermelon To My Girl To-Night and 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)

Driving Miss Crazy (Olivia Rodrigo vs Patsy Cline)

tbc vs Instamatic - Driving Miss Crazy (Olivia Rodrigo vs Patsy Cline) - Crumplbangers discord challenge mashup bootleg bastard pop country pop

A track from last week’s Crumplbangers Discord Challenge, it made second place! And I think one of my best ones, The challenge was to use sources 60 years or more apart – this was almost exactly 60 bar a few months, 1961 vs 2021, Patsy Cline – Crazy vs Olivia Rodrigo – Driver’s License. I am a massive Patsy Cline fan, her early stuff is eerie, so I’ve always wanted to do a Patsy mash. And Olivia works well with Patsy…

And I couldn’t resist the Driving Miss Daisy pun, I realised it made a better title than ‘Crazy Driving’ when I was doing the artwork so it got renamed.

Reggae Mashup Unlockdown Summer #1 – Ready or Not for the Afterglow

Nextmen & Eva Lazarus - Afterglow Dub Fugees - Ready or Not Smash & Grab - Ready or Not Fak Scratch & Mooncat - Ready Or Not mashup bastard pop ragga jungle cover Reggae Mashup Unlockdown Summer #1

It increasingly looks like the unlocking of the lockdown will be delayed…which makes this yearning ragga jungle call to return back to clubbing either very topical or very redundant. Created for the Crumplbangers Reggae Challenge, I loved the new reggae cover of 2013’s Wilkinson single Afterglow by Nextmen featuring Eva Lazarus so much, I made a ragga jungle version!

This calls back to DJ Zinc’s Fugees 2003 bootleg by recreating it with two other Ready or Not sampling jungle tracks with the original Enya-sampling track. Are you ready for the Afterglow? Or not? Take It Slowly (like the probable date for opening up).

Sunderwall (Lil Oasis X) – Lil Nas X vs Oasis

Sunderwall Oasis Lil Nas X Sun Come Down Wonderwall mashup bastard pop blend cover Britpop queer pop

This almost became a Captain Obvious track, because to me, the new one from Lil Nas X – Sun Goes Down is basically Wonderwall by Oasis? It was either this or the Verve’s Lucky Man, there’s a real Britpop vibe with this song about struggling as a queer teen in the closet – I can totally relate. Maybe because when I was a struggling queer teen, Britpop was my soundrack.

This is a real lighter in the air track! I made it with the first night of clubbing in mind in June….as a sort of drunken ‘everyone come together’ closer. And also a first – I have never done a Wonderwall mashup in nearly 20 years. Came together really quickly because I suspect someone will do it very shortly…like other Lil Nas X tracks I put it out there and just hope it’s in key 😛 I think this one is….

Thanks to IamJstncrdble for the acapella.
