So as much as I try bring you up to speed with the new indie tunes, and remind you of where they come from,
sometimes I need to pause and pay homage to breakthrough classics who shaped music as we know it today.
One of those key influencers is Norman Cook alias Fatboy Slim. Cook was on the forefront of the big beat DJ explosions of the 90s.
You all know his songs, you all know his crazy videos (Praise You and Weapons of Choice winning video awards for good reasons).
But after last night’s London 2012 Olympics Closing Ceremony where he took over that huge Octopus (which Bloc Party teasingly claimed was homage to their new single on their FB page) and brought down the house at the young ripe age of 50 – you got to show the man respect. He still has faaaat beats.
So let’s do it with his smash hit The Rockafeller Skank.
I wish I could make a soundtrack to my life and breathe in the notes every day
