(13 MP3s in this post)
With his program Phuj Phactory taking a summer break, Ergo Phizmiz offers up 13 MP3s to ease the pain. This is the third installment of his Phuj Phactory mix albums available, complete with cover art. (Previous installments of Phuj Phactory albums are here and here.) The title of each track is a link to the MP3, followed by Ergo's description of each mix.
Welcome Audio - Bob Gogel from Liberata Ltd introduces a corporate training day, crossed with Duncan Lamont's bossa-nova machine. The Bob Gogel CD was a present from a friend who works for Mr Gogel
Idiot Rumbles - An utterly ridiculous explosion containing elements of West Side Story, Felix Kubin, Walter Carlos and Tchaikovsky.
Hungarian Tango - Does what is says on the tin. Brahms Hungarian Dance cross-bred with some 70s ballroom tango.
Money Makes My Bottom Go Round - Kander & Ebb's Cabaret mixed with George Formby, Spike Jones, Digits McPhee. The sort of mix I LOVE making.
Peanuts - As many versions of the Peanut Vendor as I could reasonably find squashed into the shortest time possible.
Laurel & Hardy Ubermash - Another obsession.
Parisian Paraguayos - Los Paraguayos crossed with Ella Fitzgerald singing Cole Porter's "I Love Paris" and a few other things.
Locking Sabres - A live turntable mix, in which two disparate elements (Khatchaturian's Sabre Dance & some early Acid House) almost completely lock-in together, completely by accident.
Undercover Brother - Dr. Dre jamming with Bach and Marlene Dietrich.
Tannoy Playtime - Elements of Jacques Tati's "Playtime" crossed with Orchestre Likembe Komono, Noel Coward, and .. errr... some other things.
Singing In The Raindrops Keep Falling On My Head - Self-explanatory!
Comedian Harmonist Waltz - I love the Comedian Harmonists, and this was from an episode dedicated to them. This is from the middle section, a big waltz!
Scorpion Sabre Dance - Nora Dean's "Scorpion" is here used as the basis for a bit of a fantasia incorporating British Dance Bands, George Formby, 70s easy-listening, Khatchaturian, Johann Strauss, and the BBC Radiophonic workshop.
