I like splicicles

They're twicicles as nicicles.

I love mashups - I always have. I've pointed a few things out on here, such as Mother of all Funk Chords - before now. Today a friend of mine pointed me at a whole album of them.

Mark Vidler of Go Home Productions has created music and videos mashing such natural(?)twins as Ce Ce Peniston's Finally and The Sex Pistols' Did You No Wrong, The Rolling Stones' Miss You and Carly Simon's You're So Vain, and an improbable but rocking triplet, The Rolling Stones' Gimme Shelter and Street Fighting Man with The Temptations' Ball of Confusion. It's called Spliced Krispies. Marvellous stuff, available for mp3 download here, or tlook at he website for all the YouTube videos.

Here's the one C. turned me on to the album with:

Yes, it's T. Rex's Get It On combined with The Rolling Stones' 2000 Light Years From Home, and the video to match. Lovely stuff. Makes you wonder about pop music, though - is it really different styles on the surface and all just the same iron under the hood? Or does Mark Vidler just make it look easy?
