IT did a post-mortem on my corpse of a PC today and discovered I’m using about 300% of my memory so it’s time for an MP3 spring clean. Stand by for several tracks today.
First up, Mongrel – aka ex-Arctic Monkey Andy Nicholson, rapper Lowkey, Reverend Jon McClure, Babyshambles’ Drew McConnell and other Monkey Matt Helders.
The original, with Jon McClure obviously drawing the short straw when they were handing out microphones, is here:
We’ve got the ‘Hit By The Morning Dub’ version of the track (which is on their new album, reviewed in NME next week), but the Ocelot remix is immense too. Actually, while I’m on Ocelot, the Iheartcomix signings brought out an amazing track a couple of years ago called ‘Lo Sforzo’. It’s one of my ipod running tracks but is curiously absent from skreemr/hypem. It’ll be out there somewhere and in the meantime La Riots did a pretty good mix – hear it on Uh Oh Disco.
I digress – get the Mongrel track here.
