Yay! The band has a video!
This song and the video were recorded on 12.1.10 at a session that only included myself, Katie Collins and Megan Driscoll. It’s cover of the NWA song, “Automobile,” (as they reformed from the original by Parliament) from their highly misogynistic, but wonderfully produced Niggaz4Life . It’s different than the version we did in the last session. That one was rockin’. This one is more chilled out and electro.
Lots of offensive language on this. Again, I’m no fan of standard camp. But this isn’t camp…these are gangstas! They mean it!

I made this mix quite a while back. I was working as a sports bar DJ at the time and that influence bleeds through here.
Generally, I like to have a fitting reason to post a mix. Something in time, or at least the air, that seems to fit with the music. This one, however, is simply a good time with a little bit of aggression. So if nothing else, let this represent some hopeful anger at the recent republican victories in the American midterm elections.
Yeah. That works. The accompanying picture was taken of two attendees at Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert’s Rally for Sanity and/or Fear. Considering what it is and where it was taken, I think that actually ties the whole thing together fairly well.
So I dunno. Maybe the Mario Brothers can save us from all these corporatists. Maybe they will be listening to rap music when they do it. That’s ultimately what this mix is about.
