Podcast: Do The Mashed Potato!

Vodpod videos no longer available.

The hipsters can have hip hop, I am taking Rock N Roll. It seems like everybody is trying to do hip hop parties in Sydney. The game is over saturated. So while I play rap for people that book me, I am trying to do something different with my nights.

This Friday we have a Rock N Roll and Soul night happening at Hollywood Hotel called Mashed Potato. Watch out Dusty Fingers and Loose Joints. We about to take over. Getting that Rockabilly money.

Shazaming tracks at Jingle Jangles is starting to pay off. Tonight we just played jams from the 50s and 60s. Oh and MK1 came in for a mix, and DJ Dam was on general mixing duties.

I didn’t think they made dirty songs like these in the 1950s. I thought married couples slept in seperate beds and you would get stoned in the town square talking like this.

I am there trying to work out if the ‘Drill Daddy Drill’ song is just innocent, until I hear the line “set up your drill in the middle of my field” and “If the well runs dry we will use another hole”. It reminds me so much of Lil Wayne’s “Miss Officer” and R. Kelly “The Zoo”. Take a bad metaphor and just keep those shamelessly terrible puns coming.

I am going to be playing a set of more XXX 50s Rock jams at our Rock N Roll and Soul party, Mashed Potato, this Friday at Hollywood Hotel. Here are some awkward photos of people dancing by Dear Pluto’s Emma Daniels.
