This weeks Mix & Mash Radio Show – 11 November 2006
Written by Simon on November 13, 2006
Yeah, good to get back in the seat after a week getting used to turning into a responsible adult, father type person somewhat earlier than expected this week!! and a good week to return it was too – Lots of new releases to keep at least this old man entertained!!!
Fatboy Slim returned with a new single, Champion Sound (which he cheekily put on his greatest hits CD a few months back), the Gossip released a single stuffed full of brillaint remixes off last years single Standing in the way of Control’ and Basement Jaxx released an intruiging little track with a bit of a country flavour to it ‘Take me back to your house’. Not forgetting the new single CSS – Alala (New single from the Brazilian band that brought you ‘Let’s make love and listen to death from above’ – And it’s darn funky. Essentially it’s a bunch of hot Brazilian girls and an old guy making electro-party tunes in the LCD Soundsystem stylee.
Also worth a mention is The Good, The Bad And The Queen – Herculean (Out last Tuesday, 31st October) brand new from Damon Albarns’s latest project and very fine it is too! He’s turning out to be a bit of a national institution is our Damon isn’t he?
Somewhere during the show I did play Spiller’s Cry Baby (Röyksopp remix) for my new baby Bam Bam which did indeed make me cry! Must be going soft afterall!!!
