Speaking of cash grabs, I present to you the Fat Boys & The Beach Boys doing “Wipeout.” If you ever wanted to see Al Jardine in a kangol hat scratching records in a bombed out 1980s Times Square, now’s your chance.
The Beach Boys one and only disco single, released on a 12” no less. It’s a ten minute true remix of Here Comes the Night off Wild Honey. A lot of Beach Boys fans don’t seem to like it but as a cash grab disco single it could be much, much worse. [via]
Raymond Scott - who is probably best known for his song “Powerhouse” from a zillion cartoons - also apparently was an early innovator in electronic music. He made three volumes of instrumental electronic children’s music that is totally insane.
