A call to arms....

Howdy all,

Well, as you may or may not all be aware, myself, The Reborn Identity and a collection of fellow mash producers (tentatively known as 'the Lynch Mob' ) are working on producing a compilation album of David Lynch based mashes. We already have a number of tracks made, and a couple more are on the way (I have a second track virtually completed myself as we speak), but we need more contributors.

The work in progress is known as "Mashed In Plastic"

Is there anyone out there who would like to come onboard the Good Ship Lynch? Do you have a track, or artwork, or even an idea you'd like us to hear? If so, please drop me a comment on this post with the details and myself or The Reborn Identity will get straight back to you (I'd post me email on here, but those ruddy spammers have been at it on my Facebook page...grrrrr......).

Be a part of Lynchian history - sign up today.

Mashed in Two Minutes

Well, after a two week hiatus away from doing any tracks, I thought it were time to return to the stage. The success of the Twin Hearts mash completely blew me away, and to be honest - left me scratching my head as to how I could follow it up. I thought it best to walk away from the PC for a while to clear my thoughts and start a fresh (that, plus the fact I've been out virtually every night on the lash, watching mates' bands and getting to know amazing girls on the other side of the Atlantic ;D )

There's a couple of ideas floating around for the much touted David Lynch project and some wonderful contributions have already been made by the awesome Voicedude and The Reborn Identity, so that's turned up the pressure on getting my other ideas finished. Plus, I'm still getting the itch to make the follow up to the EVP mix....but in the meantime, what could I release quickly to get one on the board?

The answer was staring me in the face. (or at least in the title of the track I was going to use). Taking a huge detour away from the sultry jazz of Twin Hearts, I've returned to the classic sunrise anthems of the early 90s. I was having a revival night here in the lounge one day and looked up several websites that gave the top 100 hardcore/acid house/rave tracks of all time and I made it my duty to try and gather as many as possible. Amongst these was my 2nd favourite 3am tune of all time (I'm already working on a mash with the 1st!) - Bug Kann & the Plastic Jam's "Made in Two Minutes". Bleep-tastic!!

Continuing on from the success of Kylie's vocals in the last mash put out, it seemed obvious to continue on with the pint-sized pop-tart in this one. But the Slow sample itself isn't the longest and so some extra bits and bobs were needed to help flesh out the mash for the 6 minutes required. Well, if I'm going to use one old classic house anthem, why not use another. The legendary Balearic vocal house screamer "You Used to Hold Me" from pioneer Ralph Rosario. And for good measure, add a dash of electro-punk mate of the masher, Princess Superstar with a clip or two from 'Perfect'.

The irony is, it was mashed, in something like 2 minutes...

Twin Hearts (The Movie)...

....or Fire Mash With Me.

Well, the request went out, and one, highly talented mash/vid-mash producer answered the call. The Reborn Identity, a fellow Lynchian obsessive, kindly offered to put together the video I really wanted for the Twin Hearts mash, and oh my god, if he didn't nail it on the head. This is exactly how I envisioned it looking, almost as if he'd been given a curious painting by Mrs. Tremont and her nephew Pierre, in which he'd entered the Red Room via my dreams.... man, I gotta stop eating creamed corn.

Although RI had already ripped the scene and so I'm sure it would have made the cut anyway, my one and only contribution to this (music aside) was the suggestion of the "Lets Rock" intro, and with hindsight, I really wish I'd dropped that sample in. It makes the whole track.

There's so many surprises in here, and some great symbolism in true Lynch style - I won't give them away but you'll see what I mean. And the timing on everything is just insanely accurate. I truly recommend you all head over to Identity's excellent site, and check out his great video mashes and excellent bootlegs. It's over at

and whilst you're at it, be sure to head over to his Youtube Channel and leave him some top comments on this and his other works at

If you ask him nicely, I'm sure he'll give you the link to the VERY hi-def original MPEG2 vid which has to be seen to be believed for the quality of DVD-rip imagery going on in this video. Damn Youtube and their pesky compression!

Alternatively, you can comment the work here or at the posting on me own wee, tiny addition to BoobTube at

Or just be lazy and hit play below. New mashes on the way shortly....until then....Let's Rock!!!
