Fat Little Bastard 15th Anniversary Podcast

Great Googly Moogly! I make musics - did you know I make musics? Well, not as much as I used to, BUT here's 15 years of my band FAT LITTLE BASTARD squeezed into one podcast by the lovely Mat Blackwell. You will hear psychedelia, pop, rock, metal, electronica, arty stuff, a ditty about David Bowie and a song about poo. FLB is my brain put to music. May get noisy or very funny. Turn it up!!!!

Peripheral Monkey is Watching You

I walked past this piece of advertising - I think it was for spectacles, can't recall. Point being, a part of the poster caught my attention out of the corner of my eye:


I point it out because as I walked past it, I thought "monkey." 
Can you see the monkey?
No?
Behold!

"Banana!"

Peripheral monkey is watching you - ALWAYS.








Bored at Work

I get bored - idle hands become the Devil's paintbrush...

New Collages - new style - new website

Friends!

I have rejigged my dot com, it's now way simpler and sexier and easier to navigate than ever before, so go have a squizz -

I have added all kinds of collages you may not have seen before, including this new idea I'm exploring called No Additives. The concept there is collages - without anything added to them. I know, right? How do dat work? Well, I use nothing BUT the one image - and only whatever's in that image. Example:


"I woke up like that..."

Hit the website to see more! (I'm also sussing instagram - more soon!)

Can I Play with Cap'n Beefheart's Commodore 64?

...is a question you should be asking yourself, often.
Allow me to expand on this.

So when I was a kid, I had a Commodore 64. It was THE GREATEST FUCKING THING I EVER OWNED, thanks Dad! (No joke.)

So there was a game there called Hawkeye - you're like a cyborg in your underpants, shooting stuff - how good is that?! Anyhoo, have a listen to the game soundtrack, it's killer. In particular, have a listen to the riff at 10:00. Very nice - catchy! The game, btw, is from 1988.



Now comes Exhibit B: Iron Maiden's Can I play with Madness? Truthfully, I'm not a Maiden fan, they have many great songs, but I can't sit through a whole album - too cheesy. But Madness is a great song - especially that riff... Have a listen.

Yes amigo, that IS Graham Chapman in his last acting assignment!

The song is from 1988. Are we beginning to sniff a pattern here? No? Yes? Don't answer, here comes Exhibit C: Captain Beefheart and the Magic Band with Moody Liz. You will not diss the Captain - EVER.
So behold this ditty, but for the purpose of our adventure, I implore you to fast forward to 3:36 and crank it. Oh and note, this song was recorded 1967 or 68.



This is what living in Heaven sounds like.

Soooooooooooooooooo, fellow cannibals, what have we sniffed out here?
Aha!

Something about a particular riff if I've done my job well.

Don't think about it too hard because all this is merely the intro(!) to a mash-up masterpiece by... me!
Special guest appearances by Arthur Brown and Zappa. Go on, clicky - it's awesome!


The world needs and deserves this!

My research into conspiracy theories...

It's all true. Here's my findings:


Is this the right way up?



Schrodinger's Pants

If I walk down the street with no pants on = BAD.
If I walk down the street with pants on = GOOD.
If I walk down the street with my fly undone = BAD; yet I am wearing pants!
Thus, pants with fly undone is the same as no pants - yet there IS pants.
.: Fly undone is pants and no pants,
a.k.a.
Schrodinger's Pants.




It is not important for anyone to understand any of this.

As a sidenote: what would Schrodinger's Cat in Schrodinger's Pants be like?
(It is not important for anyone to understand any of this either.)
