PCP and Sixfoot Apprentice on the indie hour by Ian Oliver
Ay-up. Another mp3 awaits you below, this time being our remix special when we were joined Angela Hard Working Class Heroes, Grand Pocket Orchestra, as well as by Sixfoot Apprentice, PCP and Co and Fatz Super Extra Bonus Party.
We spoke to Angela Dorgan from last weekend’s HWCH festival at the beginning of the show as well as Grand Pocket Orchestra, who played an excellent set (or so I was told after Kraftwerk) on the Saturday night of the festival. We heard Ballet Shoes taken from GPO’s up-coming EP as well as New Amusement’s Gone to Sea from their EP Any Port In A Storm. Feck it anyway, I can’t remember what we played first on the show. No doubt it was brilliant.
Sixfoot (aka Declan) and PCP (aka Colm) shared with us their insights on remixes and played through a few favourites as well as originals.
Sixfoot’s choices were Modeselektor’s remix of Thom Yorke’s Skip Divided taken from The Eraser Remixes and the mash-up Pixie P by Irish lad Pasta Masta. We also played his own mashup featuring Heatwave, Mary J Blige, Krinjah and Sixfoot Apprentice.
PCP brought down the Bass Cleff remix of Fiery Furnaces’ Slaving Away and Tricky’s Brand New Retro as remixed by Alex Reese. From his own work he brought down the PCP deck mash of Cocteau Twins Vs Enduser entitled A Kissed Out Red M16 Machine Gun. At least I think that’s what it’s called!
To finish off the show, like a cherry on top of an imaginary ice-cream sundae, we were joined by Co and Fatz Super Extra Bonus Party, who shared with us a few tracks from their soon to be released as a free download remix album Appetite for Reconstruction. And we had a bit of a giggle in between the tracks.
Don’t forget to join them on the 10th of October in Andrew’s Lane Theatre for the launch of the album when they’ll be joined by shitloads of Ireland’s best acts. It’s going to be a cracking night.
Here you are now – let me know if you have any trouble downloading it as it’s a little fatter than usual. It’s more plump than obese in mp3 terms though so you should be ok.
