OK. Honest truth. Im not a fan of mad remixes, ive tried to listen to many many fan creations which have bits all over the place and they are quite simply not my cup of tea – too much repeating the same sample 15 times and it gets very irritating and is quickly deleted from my itunes.

However i am really enjoying this (6:20 in on side 1). Love the panning effects and how it keeps cutting in and out on the speakers (not on headphones yet) plus all the oddball remix announcements, comments and whatever else goes on in the speakers. It mayhem, complete and utter chaos and carnage, but great to listen. I am loving this the more it goes on.

The use of the '67 christmas quiz show with You Know My Name!!!!

As Janice from Friends would say

 

"Oh my God!"

 

Later added comments (3 posts in a row is too many)

 

Are there any titles for these tracks as its a definate keeper for my itunes? And any chance of that alternate side 2 (mentioned previously) being put up as a bonus?

Appreciate the kind words, MeanMM, but you should really save 'em until you hear "Across The Universe", which I anticipate you will NOT like! (The single sloppiest piece of work in the whole thing, although "Fool on the Hill" and "Your Mother Should Know" come close – and in truth there are MANY rough edges that make me cringe, two years later.)

The alternate/original Side Two doesn't exist anymore, but it's no loss really – just the same as the redone one, only rougher, and with one ill-considered effect replaced with a better one.

Not sure what you mean by track titles – I just think of the four long suites as sides one through four. The individual tracks don't exist as such, unless you have your own music editing software, sorry. Should that be the case, the only titles that aren't self-evident are the ones I gave to the "orignal creations". As mentioned previously, these are "Dilrubas on 2", "Sgt. Pepper Taught the Band To Fly", "A Splendid Time", "I Am The Rooster/2-Minute Pepper" and "Banjorowanya".

No worries about the early side 2 or anything else. So far ive gotten to the end of side three and have enjoyed every moment, twist and oddity (creators nearly always criticise their own work).

 

As for titles (for the name of each complete side) have so far come up with:

 

side 1: nothing yet but havent given much thought over the last few days.

side 2: Scrambled Beginnings Before Long

side 3: A Splendid Two Minute Peppered Rooster

side 4: Rich Mans Universe (not pleased with that but couldnt think of anything else)

 

If anyone has any suggestions for these (its for my itunes library – everything needs a name and has to be properly ordered – especially when it comes to The Beatles) then please make them known. The weirder and more demented the better would be nice.

 

And once again thanks Von bontee, have found these to be a listeners delight.

Those titles are just fine!

For side one, how about "Magical Northern Songs and Eastern Numbers"?

By request, I've re-uploaded all four sides of this and made it available again. Please feel free to sample thereof if you haven't already – the links go dead after 60 days if nobody downloads 'em!

Side one: http://www.sendspace.com/file/4sqqaw

Side two: http://www.sendspace.com/file/idzha1

Side three: http://www.sendspace.com/file/xiaok3

Side four: http://www.sendspace.com/file/h0fi8s

Sorry to bug, but can you upload Side Four again? It's the only side I wasn't able to download. Thank you in advance.

I wish I could help you, but unfortunately my home computer's not working at the moment!

Maybe you could send a pm to Zig or meanmistermustard and ask if they could hook you up somehow…

Thanks for listening!

I have no idea how to upload music and share it. If someone cares to explain very slowly then i'll try but no promises.

You could go to sendspace.com and open up your own free account, then just follow the directions provided on the site. It's really not difficult, if you're willing to invest a few minutes. (And then another half-hour or so for the actual uploading.)
