Not sure if this should belong in the tbc or the Instamatic realm, it’s ambient so filed it under tbc. I’d thought I’d posted this, actually it was only posted on Twitter and Facebook just before I left for Egypt in November.
This is a rarity for me – an Elbow bootleg (!) given my “love” for that band but the music is really good here and bonus you don’t get to hear Guy Garvey wail. I’ve paired ‘Mirror Ball’ with Fleetwood Mac’s Gold Dust Woman, gives it an eery edge and as the original blurb for this said on Facebook it’s dedicated to Hathor, Mami Wata and Hatshepsut.

Currently there are a few of the boots I played at Bootie in San Francisco:
Push it Slut (French Avenue 2006) – An older boot from 2004 given a sparkly new treatment and basically redone from the ground up, adding Kraftwerk’s Tour de France to the existing mix of Avenue D’s ‘Do you Think I’m a Slut?’ and Salt n’ Pepa’s classic ‘Push It’
Alison She’s So Horsey – sort of floating around for a while, this is an excercise in taking the piss out of Ms Alison’s ‘Ride a White Horse’ which like a lot of Goldfrapp wears it’s influences not only on it’s sleeve but pretty much has stolen the whole wardrobe! So I mixed it with Laidback ‘White Horse’ and a spoof of that called Disco Horse
Ghetto Tits 2006 – another remake and a companion to Push it Slut, this is Benassi’s remix of Outkast’s Ghetto Musick mixed with various Peaches tracks, with added Scissor Sisters ‘Tits on the Radio’ and Salt n Pepa and a touch of Kraftwerk again for good measure. That’s if your measure is slightly tilting and vibrating from the bass, that is.
LFO Can’t Turn Around – a bit of a cheat this one, it’s been released in the R-House mix before but never seperately, this mixes LFO ‘LFO’ with Farley Jackmaster Funk’s house classic ‘Love Can’t Turn Around’ and I’m rather fond of it.
that bloke tbc’s at it agin – e’s gon un’ stole sum of ma old booteez and put em up on ‘is blog. Bah. Is mah bootee stash not safe, man? An’ e added sum smarmy feckin smart-arse comment to em 2. Dat man needz a seeing to, correcklee like.

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 farlittle 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…
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…)
Cha Cha IS the nu Rock n Roll, and this will be 4 a new EP of Cha Cha boots if I evah get mah shang togethah…Snoop the D.O double G croons with the Starlight Strings. Tis Unforgettable…I want u 2 shake yer bootie to the ballroom big band, yeah?
Some odd beardy bloke called tbc put it on ‘is Jazz Mix or summat. Can’t see it meself… Cha Cha Like It’s Hot(Snoop Dogg ‘Drop it Like It’s Hot’ vs Starlight Strings ‘Unforgettable’)
As mentioned over at my Instamatic blog I was involved with the Blur remix album, Parkspliced. I also did a mashup of one of the b-sides from Parklife, which was probably the best mashup I did for that project, or possibly the best one I’ve done, period.
I quite wisely avoided using all but 2.1 seconds of the Blur track which was a terrible modern jazz wankathon; and mixed in other beard/hair related tracks, namely Nina Simone’s cover of the folk standard ‘ Black is the color’ and Slowdive’s cover of Sid Barrett’s ‘Golden Hair’ in honour of my partner John (who does indeed have a golden beard, well in the right sort of light it is…).
This one was done quite a while ago (way before the album, the tour, and SS getting so big, when they released Comfortably Numb as a single) and many people tried this acapella with, well everything…it’s such a weird tonality and vocal that not many things work…so when I heard the then-new Air album ‘Talkie Walkie’ (well worth getting) the track ‘Run’ leapt out at me as something that would work.
This track, is, well not so chilled but from a cold and scary place… Comfortable Run
Now many people have said that Scissor Sisters are ripping off Elton John…wrong they are actually ripping off the much less trendy sound of ELO…listen to Laura then Mr. Blue Sky and see what you think.
So inspired by that revelation (and wanting reclaim ELO as being not as bad as people think) I mixed ‘Believe Me Now’ with ‘Take Your Mama Out’ – again like Whitney I realised how sad that song is; about a closeted guy coming out to his mother (I think) Mama Believe Me Now
