For the full version of the track (which I think is pretty great), check out Soundcloud:
After David Cameron announced that he was stepping aside to let that creature Theresa May into the position of completely unelected Prime Minister, he was caught ‘humming’ a wee ditty as he walked back into Number 10. Definitely a man who has checked out.
I quite liked the sound of it, so gave it a remix below:
See ya Davey. It’s been real.
(For another remix, check out this one from Graeme Coleman – complete with accompanying video)

My pal Lee has a new band, called Magnificent Bastard. They’ve just put our their first single – ‘Smile, You Fuck’ to stream on Bandcamp and the like.
I convinced him to let me have a bash at destroying his hard work, and he stupidly agreed. So here it is, remixed:
All of the sounds are taken from the original recording, with the exception of the Game Boy – which definitely was not.
On Friday I spent some time in the studio working on different tracks. One of them was an experimental cover of ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ with my sister and her boyfriend singing and playing guitar. They studied music at University, and it was nice to record with people who knew what they were doing.
We used a bunch of different effects to layer the sound up, and I added in chip drums later on.
You can hear and download the track below. It’s ‘Somewhere Over the Rainbow’ like you’ve never heard it before. In someone else’s words:
I could imagine it being played at a f**** up fun fare with porcelain dolls singing as they go round in a Ferris wheel.
In a previous life I was in a band called Closet Organ.
We had a song called ‘Rock! Neanderthal’.
A couple of years ago, Michael M from We Are the Physics remixed the track in a chip-tastic fashion, but for some reason the post about it disappeared.
Re-uploading here as it’s great.
You can download the remix here.
The original is over on the Closet Organ Soundcloud here.
Thanks to Nat Lyon for his take on sleeping solves nothing, from the first unexpected bowtie album… which even features the ring modulated snoring of Newfoundland dogs.
If you fancy ripping apart a track, give me a shout.
