Beginning <=> End (Boards & Black Crosses) (Boards of Canada vs Crosses vs Black Sabbath)

tbc aka Instamatic Beginning End (Boards & Black Crosses) (Boards of Canada vs Crosses vs Black Sabbath) Boards of Canada - Music Is Math Crosses - The Beginning Of The End Black Sabbath - End of the Beginning mashup bootleg blend cover bastard pop ambient dark

3rd place inthe Crumplbangers Discord ‘reverse’ challenge which was a hard one – use a reversed instrumental or acapella in a mashup. Not many things sound good reversed, and beats were a tricky issue…it was hard to get something listenable beyond 30 seconds of reversing, the novelty wears off fast.

I’ve always wanted to work with musical palindromes (music that plays the same backwards as well as forward) and although most of them are classical pieces, there are a few modern tracks like Boards of Canada’s Music Is Math from Geogaddi (an album full of Satanic Reverses – spooky reverse/backmasking songs – interestingly this doesn’t seem to have any). It’s like a mirror song, you can see it in the waveform, part backwards, part forwards.

So following the mirror theme, I looked for tracks that reference beginning and ends, Smashing Pumpkins and NIN didn’t work, but a new track by Crosses did. I knew nothing about Crosses til I found it, it’s the side project of Chino Moreno of the Deftones. And it’s a cover of Cause & Effect.

I also then found the Black Sabbath track, which together give it a doomier feel and something of a paean to the planet and it’s destruction and return to the ‘new normal’ as we come out of lockdown.

Is it the end of the beginning or the beginning of the end? We need to repair the system, as Ozzy says…again a personal mashup from me about the status quo.

Kodiak Moment Vol 2: Best Of Instamatic 2003-2008

So here finally is the second Kodiak Moment with my mashup work for the first 5 years – 2003-2008 as Instamatic and tbc..

Picking up where the first one left off with also a look into the pre-history of my first mashups – included is my third ever mashup, and there is earlier in the secret bonus section *only* with the full album download.

Includes: Exclusive unreleased bootlegs and annotations for each bootleg, extra bonus demos and alternate versions, and I have remixed and remastered many of them to make them all nice and shiny for 2020.

I have sourced 36 of the 38 tracks from lossless sources, many for the first time as they existed only as low-res MP3 on here.

It is like a bootleg box set!

And there is more to come in this set, I have deeply raked over the last 17 years of making mashups.

Download at my Bandcamp or over at the Bootleg Archive
