*brrrr* Did it just get COOL in here?

I had to get my over coat on
Avatar 4:08pm
Mr Fab:

sounds like Barry White goofed up on too much cough syrup

I think playing this song slower is the funniest thing. It's been cracking me up for years.. yeah exactly Barry White never really put my finger on it
Avatar 4:10pm
Mr Fab:

well I'm laffin!

the music itself even sounds not half bad at this speed
Avatar 4:11pm
Mr Fab:

makes it more funky too

Hello, Martinibomb! Hello Mr. Fab!

I'm gonna miss Mell Brooks when he's gone. He's getting pretty old. Hey Rich!
Avatar 4:16pm
Mr Fab:

What up, Rich!
I knew Mel Brook's "Hitler Rap" but not this one. Mel Brooks actually made more than one rap record?!

That's funny I haven't heard Hitler Rap -- so I guess he did!

Rich in Washington:

Oh man. Dr. Demento memories galore.
Avatar 4:20pm
Mr Fab:

a fave of Li'l Fab. Started indoctrinating here at an early page.

yes, I'd only heard Dr. Demento twice when I was a kid coming in from Ashland via AM radio waves and this is one of the songs I remember hearing

Bill Paxton was in the music video for Fish Heads so that's why I played Martini Ranch next .. plus this song is awesome
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm
Rich in Washington:

His show had a 'top ten' type format, so you would hear the same songs week after week.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:22pm
Rich in Washington:

Martini Ranch also had Devo members aiding and abetting them, which you can really hear on this track.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:23pm
Rich in Washington:

I have a possible 'in' to interview him next week. I'm kind of terrified. I might chicken out.

Rich in Washington:

Dr. Demento, not Bill Paxton. My Ouji board's in the shop.

yeah it was Mark and Bob2 that produced that song

@Fab i put fish heads on mix tape for my 6 year old niece
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:25pm
Rich in Washington:

I think Devo members also guest on a Jermaine Jackson LP in around '82 or so.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:26pm
Rich in Washington:

And of course Toni Basil's Word of Mouth LP. She and Jerry C. were an item then, I think.

Oh yeah I have that 12" jeez what's the name.. uh .. let me tickle your fancy
Avatar 4:29pm
Mr Fab:

Ha, I liked that collage-y goodness there.

thanks! this whole mix is a little like that. I got into playing with the audio as I was DJn using some new tools to remix it live??

I try to not make it super annoying tho
Avatar 4:38pm
Mr Fab:

This is a groooove!

Grease is a guilty pleasure for me.
Avatar 4:43pm
Mr Fab:

I like this Frankie Valli. His high pitched scree that practically only dogs can hear that he used in the Four Seasons makes me cringe.

I must feel the same cause I don't listen to any of that but man I love that Grease track
Avatar 4:49pm
Mr Fab:

Wow, Etta james covered Sonny n Cher?! SO much better than the original.

She kills everything she touches - soooo good

Kenzo (Ken's Last Ever):

Funny how I associate this VU loop with Girl talk
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:58pm
Rich in Washington:

Girl Talk stole all the low-hanging riffs.

I was always impressed that he did all that stuff with Audiomulch
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:59pm
Rich in Washington:

His crowning accomplishment was that he kept the Illegal Arts label afloat for many years.

@Rich yeah I always thought he was kinda crass with his sampling.
Avatar 5:06pm
Mr Fab:

I used to call him the Tone Loc of mashups. Mediocre, but for a very brief period hugely popular with a public ignorant of the real stuff.

People love familiarity and he took full advantage
Avatar 5:10pm
Mr Fab:

Oh man, that was funny! real tv variety show stuff

That Nashville Rhythm thing yeah totally! Super silly - grand ole oppery style
Avatar 5:19pm
Mr Fab:

Sarah Vaughn in a dubwise stylee? Nice...
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:23pm
Rich in Washington:

He's actually quite talented at it, but it's kind of easy to make crowd pleasing, booty-shaking music out of the best bits of crowd pleasing booty-shaking music. He's sort of the Led Zeppelin of appropriation music. He doesn't reframe anything or contextualize anything. It's rarely humorous or ironic. TradeMark G more accurately classifies him as a 'remixer'.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:24pm
Rich in Washington:

REcontextualize, I meant.

It's boring to listen to for me

I always thought of him as an ADHD DJ
Avatar 5:28pm
Mr Fab:

I loved "Life on Mars" (orig UK version). I should really check out "The Sweeney."

Oh yeah! Big fan of that original series of Life on mars. Yeah Gene Hunt is effing awesome!

I really love the Sweeney series I've watched em all. John Thaw is the original Gene Hunt
Avatar 5:31pm
Mr Fab:

I thought that was Gene 'unt in that sample from 'The Sweeney.'

May as well be Lol
Avatar 5:37pm
Mr Fab:

My work week actually starts on Wednesdays and goes thru Sundays. In other words, this is my Monday. so i appreciate the invigorating musics

Yeah I think this mix is good for doing work and tuning everything else out. This Tokyo Cosmonauts is the only Martinibomb on vinyl by the way.. red vinyl :-)
Avatar 5:44pm
Mr Fab:

btw, LA sez: "Portland, you can take your weather back now, please."

I've been kinda laughing about the rain down there. And it's been super nice and abnormally warm up here.. It's like we switched weather patterns???
Avatar 5:51pm
Mr Fab:

yeah, i've seen guys still walking around in shorts, short sleeves...

boogaloo, mi mucho gusto el boogaloo!

That's about it for this show. But if you stick around past this next song by Ivan Cattaneo I threw some more cutup nonsense in because I had a little extra time.
Avatar 5:56pm
Mr Fab:

this show was da (Martini)bomb, *round of applause*

You're too kind!
