Fatboy Slim - Palookaville
Written by Nicholas Jennings    PDF Print E-mail

Fatboy Slim - PalookavilleLike most DJs and remixers, Fatboy Slim (a.k.a. Norman Cook) is a record geek (his vast vinyl collection graced the cover of his 1998 album, You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby).  On his fourth collection of sampled hooks and big beats, the nerdy native of Bromley, England digs into his crates and remakes the Steve Miller Band’s “The Joker,” sung here by Bootsy Collins. Strangest of all is “Don’t Let the Man,” which loops a “longhaired freaky people” sample from “Signs,” the Five Man Electrical Band’s Canrock anthem.
