RC 227: GYBO RIP Part 2 – Bootie London set

Second part of GYBO RIP and our Bootleg Nostalgia Very Extended Week on Radio Clash, here’s a recreation of my set at Bootie London.

This is a mix of old skool and nu-skool, from bastard pop to bootlegs and mashups. Bootie London was billed as the Get Your Bootleg On Wake, so wanting to bring the ol’ Bastard spirit I asked quite a few of the old GYBO/Bastard crew to list their favourites. I also trawled through my old 2002 and 2003 CD-Rs hence there are a lot of forgotten or not-so forgotten classics featured in this set, and Missy Elliott became a theme.

I had a lot of fun doing this set, and although warming up the people that were there was silly dancing (from me too at the end!) and those there enjoyed the classics and even the newer ones like G3rst’s Rammstein vs ABBA! There’s also a Bootie London exclusive, Captain Obvious’s Push Groove which is a remake of a 2003 Half Arsed Beats mashup.

Thanks to: Lee Spoons, Thriftshop XL, Ian Fondue, CartelMike, Ms Frenchie, Eve Massacre, Philmans & Dog (of Phil n Dog) and Frenchbloke for their excellent lists and track suggestions- not all of them worked for this kind of thing, but collected them for a future podcast.

Can you get a mostly blander set of hits than this? NOW used to be a mix of the shit and the good, cred and the crap…now sadly success is probably only measured in sales rather than whether it’s good or not.

There are some Pop Classics™:

Kylie, Yazz, UB40, RUN DMC, Beyonce, Bon Jovi (I hate to say it, but yes) Ray parker Jr., Sinead O’Connor, Scissor Sisters, Britney Spears, Robbie Williams (ditto), R.E.M, Queen, Gnarls Barkley, FGTH, Outkast, PSB’s, Peter Gabriel, Spice Girls (double ditto), The Proclaimers, Diana Ross

but there are a lot even with the benefit of hindsight which should have been suffocated at birth:

Will Young, Fergal Sharkey, U2 (ooh controversy!), Tpau, Roxette, Cher, Phil Collins, The Verve, Westlife, Tony Christie, The Killers, S Club 7, Shania Twang, Boyzone, Backstreet Boys, Rihanna, Duffy, Wet Wet Wet, Belinda Carlisle, Mika, Natalie Imbrooglywoogly, Crowded House, James Blunt, Katy Perry

and others which are like ‘yes but not that song?!?!’

David Bowie, Take That, Tina Turner, Wham, Elton John, Coldplay, No Doubt, Timbaland, Eurythmics, Kaiser Chiefs

And talking of DJ Timmy Tim as he was known, why no Missy? Distinct lack of Eminem too. As we all know Madonna has never graced a NOW album either, having been kept off the No. 1 slot by one, but Prince has, so why the no show?). And no New Order – not even Blue Monday.

So what would be your NOW 25 years wonder playlist?
