Destroy Rock And Roll
Delrico Bandito Podcast 2 - Desecrating The Classics
I think some of the most fascinating art is torn between the desire to create and the need to destroy. I'm not really into sacred cows, especially musical ones. So this latest podcast (the second one, proper, let's be honest) is a collection of classic records that have been savaged by lunatics with guitars, samplers and a twisted musical vision. All done with a combination of both healthy respect and contempt for the source material. There's remixes, covers, mash ups and flagrant disregard for international copyright laws...
A lot of it is really quite loud and deliciously messy. And I'm aware that a lot of people probably won't like it all that much. But sod it, I've been wanting to do this for ages, and it's my blog, so ner ner ner. This is as destructive and self indulgent as I'm likely to get, so enjoy the ride. Oh, and, it does get a bit sweary in places, so Parental Advisory, shield your kiddies' ears...
