FATBOY SLIM - Slash Dot Dash Single Review
has live guitars! The plan was to throw in a bit of Buzzcocks and The White Stripes. The track is just a comment on this new language people seem to have - although I don't even own a computer. Well, I do, the Atari in my studio, but no one ever sent me an email on that!
Commercial formats feature a wealth of a beats and pieces. Dancefloor cut Jin Go Lo Ba' from the album is here, alongside a remix from Jon Carter. In addition Close To Home', Norman 's music for the O2 advert is featured, plus exclusive B side What They Looking For'. There is even an accapella of Slash Dot Dash'!
Fatboy Slim's videos have become something of the industry bench mark. This time round veteran video director Tim Pope, who recently scooped the lifetime achievement award at Music Week's CADS awards, will direct the video for Slash Dot Dash'. The first music project he has worked on for nearly ten years. The video for Slash Dot Dash' is featured on the enhanced CD single.
The new album Palookaville' is released on the 4th October 2004 . The album features vocal contributions from Damon Albarn, Lateef from Latyrx, Bootsy Collins, Justin Robertson and local Brighton band Jonny Quality. It's all rather good. Promo copies available soon.
In all the excitement, it shouldn't be forgotten that this is Skint's 100th single release. Congratulations all round then for one of the UK 's finest independent labels.
