How Excellent Is This? [i].

January 16th, 2018

Funkstörung’s remix of Jay-Jay Johnson’s “I Want Some Fun Now” on the Viceversa-remix-album (Studio !K7, 2001) ?

Naturally, an artist completely overlooked by me… at the time? It is highly unlikely that I would have ever considered listening or playing the original or this. In fact I did not. What a silly, silly thing to have done…

The lyrics are as funny as they are scarringly and accutly correct.

Other artists featured? A Guy Called Gerald, Speedy J, Plaid and Jean-Michel Jarre. The coup-de-gras? Well there’s an early Funckarma track called “Spatial Convolution” remixed (or Morphed by Funkstörung as it were) by Funkstörung.

Close call between: A Guy Called Gerald and Jay-Jay Johnson. The latter is probably my favourite. What about Funckarma? Allways out of competion. Always and for ever, ever, ever.

NOTE: The tracklisting from *T*unes is one of the most incoherent I have ever seen. Apart from the abovious ones I used the approx. track durations (it was a right nightmare I can tell you).
