As most of my listeners will now know I run a highly unsuccessful little record label called Metal Postcard Records. It started life with a 7" entitled Imagine This by Sydney based Wax Audio; Lennon's Imagine as sung by GW Bush which became runaway viral YouTube hit at the time and even earned praise via email from Yoko. To my mind an audio mash up has always meant either political comment or making something Dada inspired rather than the endless trite Lady Gaga vs somebody else mp3s you now find littering all corners of the www. With this in mind here's an hour long selection of music that highlights some of the politics of the last decade with some of the odder and more experimental mash-ups I've heard. Particular favorites include Cassette Boy's "Fly Me To New York" which would easily sit in my top ten of all time along with "Robert Johnson vs Karl Heinz Stockhausen" by New York based Fuckintosh and Mato's re-working of Public Enemy's "Bring The Noise" in uptempo Kingston Style.
