Golden Beard (Blur Parkspliced B-side)

Parkspliced main over by Tim Baker


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…).

The track seems very haunting; and Nina Simone and Slowdive work so well…
