Tune Tag, for this round, travels through many genres, many eras, and many decades!
....and stay tuned! More about “Riffindots”
Coming soon!!! So keep a wide berth!
The world of DJ’s is a pocket that je ne connais pas enough about! Thanks for the added layer of intrigue. Pawn takes rook! I need some fall listening. Looks like I’ll try this Beats International!
Loved this! And love the Austin mentions! Signed, a fellow Austinite
I recognized Britta's name and face immediately, but I couldn't quite make the connection until I made it further into the article.
She may not remember, but we encountered each other on more than one occasion here in Austin, probably at The Continental Club, Guerro's Taco Bar, or Antone's.
And perhaps another time at a private party in my old neighborhood off South Congress, hosted by either Kathy Valentine or by Patty Griffin and Robert Plant.
I'm a week late and a dollar short (or just physically short) to this, but thought I'd throw my two cents in anyway (so, I suppose, only .98 short).
Loved following the baton in this one! It's like watching dueling chess masters, only a lot less boring.
I thought I'd throw in some more Fatboy Slim/Norman Cook/Housemartins trivia as I've been a big fan of all three versions of him since the beginning. (I'm sure Cook's counterpart in the Housemartins, Paul Heaton, will get a feature here on the FR&BS if he hasn't already, whether with his great work in The Beautiful South or his solo work or more recent stuff with Jacqui Abbott.)
Before he discovered the joy of Cinnabon as Fatboy Slim, Norman had a couple of other projects, Beats International and Freak Power. Both are great, but I particularly love the first Beats International album, Let Them Eat Bingo. Both projects are worthy precursors to his more club-forward stuff as FB Slim. I do wonder what he's been up to for the past decade and a half; maybe just DJ'ing and remixing?
This is fantastic. Well done both of you! I love “Caravan of Love” (the track and the entire album, actually, by Isley Jasper Isley). I didn’t know this Housemartins cover!
Always great to see Wire get worked into the conversation!
Well done! Love seeing the McCallum track here — far too few folks know how cool those records are!
Fun, as usual! Good to meet Britta.
Nice one! Brad, do you have any stats (yet) on who shows up the most in Tune Tag? Bowie has to be in the top five!
