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 the Best of Instamatic Vol 4 on
Bandcamp or over at the Bootleg Archive. Tracklist

With the death of Casey Kasem Negativland
released the stems for their litigious ‘hit’ ‘The Letter U And The Numeral 2’, which survived ten days before U2’s legal eagles swooped and had no sense of humour at all. Over ten years ago I mashed this up with the String Quartet version of ‘I Still Haven’t Found What I’m Looking For’ using a sparse version. Now the stems are out there, it made sense to revisit it….adding in more Casey. (RIP).
Instamatic – Still Haven’t Found It (Negativland vs String Quartet 2014 version)
Original 2004 version is
still on here.

‘Kodiak Moment’ promotional Instamatic CD – Artwork by Pheugoo
A lot of my old boots/mashups haven’t been online for years – most people don’t know I’ve created something like 50+ mashups as Instamatic since 2003, more as DJNoNo and as tbc and various aliases…there have been quite a few mashups ‘retrospectives’ recently, and the odd request to find various tracks so here is my Greatest Misses…tracks that fell down the cracks!
Also a few tracks such as the Jump megamix (Jump x2 and Renegade Trouble) and the Too Many Egos haven’t been properly released before.
Also includes my first released mashup – FSOL vs Peaches, so you can see how far little I’ve developed…I did think ‘shall I redo some of these?’ or fix some of the mistakes I can hear now – I thought not since I hate that when say bands re-release ‘tweaked’ or ‘improved’ versions of old songs. Publish and be damned!
Thanks to RevMenagerie who requested my Negativland / String Quartet mashup…
NOTE: Some of these tunes are severely NSFW – especially FCUKK Fashion…
The Future Sound of Peaches (FSOL vs Peaches)
Missy Wants A White Horse (Missy vs Laidback and jacky – one of my personal faves)
Fragile Tomorrow (Kings of Tomorrow vs Fragile State)
FCUKK Fashion (Prodigy vs Bowie and DJ Yoeri) (as Instore – with the Kate Moss situation strangely topical now!)
Kylie’s Ass is a Spaceship (Kylie vs SFA vs NERD)
Still haven’t Found It ( Negativland live vs String Quartet)
Blancmange Milkshake (Kelis vs Blancmange)
Satan Bush Blair (Bootie edit – original featured over at Bushwhacked)
Ludakriss (Kid Carpet intro) – (here’s the original with the Kid Carpet ‘Jump’ intro)
Altogether Let it Be Me (An exercise in combining songs inspired by Pachelbel’s Canon – Nancy Sinatra vs The Farm)
Radio 4Play – (Shannon vs Radio4) I got kind of obsessed by Shannon’s ‘Let the Music Play’, and then Kelis’s Milkshake…shows huh?
My Muppet Band (Tokyo Ska Orchestra vs D12 – originally over at Strangely Familiar website)
Infidel Milkshake Party (Wyclef & Missy vs Kelis)
Work it Tiger (Le Tigre vs Masters at Work)
Egyptian Jet (Bangles vs Jet -a month later a mix of this appeared on 7″ – dunno if it was mine?)
Shannon’s Knuckles (Shannon vs Rankie Knuckles)
Madison Heartbreak (Maisonettes vs Madison Avenue)
Brightside Slippy (never totally finished since I was afflicted by a sudden inexplicable hatred of the Killers)
Fire (Bootie edit of a minimix – DJ Zebra mixed into Fire mix (Grandmaster Scott vs Radio4 vs Electric6 vs Trammps)
Jump minimix – Ludakriss / Jumpx2/ Renegade Trouble – first time online! (Made for Uprising 3.5, also played in part at Bastard –
Kid Carpet / Ludacris vs Kriss Kross / House of Pain vs Kriss Kross / Wildchild vs Beasties)
and from the DJNoNo canon, a few rarities:
I Love Happy Hardcore (Fuck Happy) – first DJNoNo boot, done for a Happy Hardcore competition where mrNo shows how much he likes Happy Hardcore…
Too Many Egos – full version (various based on the odd acapella version of EgoRocker and a pisstake of several Ego-Rocker boots – a short 70s version that eventually appeared on Marty Batfreak’s 100 mix)
Em is a Naggin Fly (Crossover vs Eminem vs Roy Orbison – pisstake of Eminem boots and mrNo trying to prove Bush No.10 wrong when he said Eminem boots now didn’t work. Did thaNo succeed? Erm, pass…)
