This is the only track by Phil Collins i have not used yet, so the name ‘Kill Phil’ was most appropriate. Gave him a good ol’ noisy send off to. Adios bro..

Mash Hits # 75 – Lost in Kon Tiki

Little bootleg one i made from the Shadows and The Fugees. The Shadows were one of the first 4 piece rock bands and had a total of 69 UK hit-charted singles! There unique guitar sound was originally produced by a combination of American Fender guitars, British amplifiers made by Vox and echo units Meazzi Echomatic tape and Binson magnetic disc. This sound inspired John Lennon and many other uk bands around that time.

Made using only samples and/or parts of the following UK No 1 singles.
The Shadows – Kon Tiki (5/10/1961)
Fugees – Ready Or Not 21/9/1996)

Mash Hits # 74 – (Everything i do) I do it for you (16 week mix)

This track is simple, well not the math’s side of it, infact i could not even do the equation necessary as it gave me a headache trying, thanks to mike.p for working it out for me. The idea behind this mash hits entry is to time stretch the song that had the most consecutive weeks at no 1 to that length. The no 1 that is in Guinness book of world records is that annoying song off Robin Hood, prince of thieves. Which was at No 1 for 16 weeks, so 16 weeks is 2688 hours. (Everything i do) I do it for you is 4.05 minutes long. Now there is no way i have enough hard drive space to time stretch the whole song so i decided to make the new song the same length as the original, 4.05. To get that i took 6.20298 milliseconds from after the 16th second of the original and stretched it out to last 4 minutes and five seconds, maintaining the pitch. I also added a stadium reverb fx for prosperity, with a 16 second decay time.

Made using only samples and/or parts of the following UK No 1 singles.
Bryan Adams – (Everything I Do) I Do It For You (13/7/1991)

Mash Hits # 72 – Gooey nun’s…

Spent a while on this one and it is entirely made from just one second of a Cliff Richard track. I had to bend the audio sideways to get all the percussion and other worldly synthy sounds out the clip.

Mash Hits # 71 – Paperback Downer

Potato’s shouldn’t always be mashed, so today i cooked the potato’s in a different way. Was reading a article on the Bava-Beccaris massacre and Gaetano Bresci earlier. This set the mood for this plundered drone piece.

Mash Hits # 70 – This is The Beatles through a ring modulator (A Hard Days Night)

I just spent the last two and a half hours trying to make the next mash hits entry with no luck at making anything half way decent .. firstly i tried putting all sorts of tracks on top of each other to find the strawberry’s and cream of track combinations, Madonna on Venga boys, Frankie goes to Hollywood on Lady gaga, Bee Gees on top of Billie Piper. They all sounded whack! then i tried making a booty bass track out of U2, this sounded so so bad. In the end i gave into my inner demons and put Beatles through a ring modulator (again) ..
