An Offbeat Interlude

Posted in Cover Versions, Dads Army, Elvis Presley, reggae, Remixes on November 24, 2008 by planetmondo


Can you believe it – the busiest day ever on the blog last Friday with double the daily hit rate and it’s all down to Brenda Lee! Of all the tunes and tracks posted and popped on the blog it’s Brenda’s ‘Walk A Mile In My Shoes’ that got picked up by Hype Machine sending a stackload of extra traffic this way. Typically it’s the Torero Brass Band and this Bardot picture that draws in the drifters and anonobods – so following on from the Brenda’s (is anyone called Brenda anymore?) WAMIMS cover here’s a Bob Andy’s reggae flavoured rework and as bonus Billy Childish’s moonstomping version of the Dads Army theme which you may have seen on some recent TV ads

Bob Andy – Walk A Mile In My Shoes

Wild Billy Childish And The Blackhands – Who Do You Think You Are Kidding Mr Hitler

Amazing what a bit tweaking and retuning can do.

With a just bit of jiggery-poppery the funky Buzzcocks bounce and shoegazer a go-go shuffle of the regular version….

Hey Venus

Becomes a white trainers with outsized tounges and long sleeved T-shirt ‘lectro pop nugget (which kind of reminds of this a bit)

Hey Venus – Mad Thatcher Disease Mix

PS – my ol’ mate Marmite has just started a new music based blog Floating In Space – so why not pop on over and have a peep.

I’m out and about for a few days – but while I’m on the hoof – riddle me this pop pickers? Why was this cheeky piece of pop perfectness only a mini blip and not a monster hit?

Mint Royale (with Lauren Laverne)- ‘Don’t Falter’

Back Friday playmates.

PS – if anyones’s got a copy of the Mint Royale remix below (Frank Sinatra ‘This Town’) – could you do a bloke a flavour and knock me a copy? I’m buzzing for it.
