i remember looong ago picking a meat beat manifesto cd on a whim, and i still put it on from time to time, but i never hear anybody talk about them(him?) i know a lot of it is kinda lame indsutrial sounding stuff, but there are a lot of quality tracks, and really he was using some pretty obscure stuff early on...


thread inspired by the soundclip of johnny jones and the king casuals' cover of purple haze i heard on the rehash site...a track which meat beat manifesto sampled back in 1990 or so...

any other fans on here?

    yes!

    have you heard jack dangers solo stuff? the ones which arent analougesynth ambient shite.. the "hello friends" lp has some great tracks on it. that guy has skills on the drums. i always liked the way he mixed them - and his layers... latin percussion on top, drummachines on the bottom... proper chopping too!

    If you wanna sound like you know electronic music, you say Meat Beat Manifesto sucked after 1990. og mix of Radio Babylon is the one you need. I think they were from Swindon, the scummers.

    Burning with Ecstacy, as we all were.

    hey meat beat question..

    Okay.. there have been million page articles on cut n paste and I'm 99% sure noone has mentioned "Cut Man" off the Armed Audio Warfare LP from what... 88? This shit is str8 up cut n paste a la steinski.. loopin up "just kissed my baby" "rock steady" and striaght instrumental with no wierd German nihilist vocals over the top like the rest of the MBM tracks.

    But my question.. was "Cut Man" ever released on vinyl? I know the single was "Dog Star Man" was... OOH WAIT I researched mid post... LOOK.

    CD (which is the same tracklisting as the tape I had in Jr High)

    Vinyl (fuck Bills Records)
    http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&category=306&item=4715949617&rd=1&ssPageName=WDVW

    not on vinyl so it seems?

    RAER!

    There's a hip-hop-esque instrumental track off of that Armed Audio Warfare LP that packs a serious wallop. Reanimator I think it is...

    I've got similar tracks by Information Society and Renegade Soundwave that make a righteous mix.


  • Jack Dangers is partly responsibile for Tino's Breaks, no?

    He seems to spin/perfor fairly often in SF. Never caught him, but have always considered it.

    yep..

    but here's the track I was talkin bout which seems to be tape/cd only:

    damm that shit's kinda hot.. reanimator too. Industrial breaks will the next big thing. Take note, Raj.

    No coincidence that a couple of TX diggers are so up on late-80's Meat Beat Manifesto. Consider this a tangent to the Dallas-->>>Houston ecstacy-scene from back then being an influence on the current rap scene.

    Jack Dangers is 1/3 of Tinos breaks,and if you get a chance ,check them out Live.Jack Dangers is a true OG and has one of the most diverse record collections I have ever seen.He also has probably the Heaviest collection of Analogue Synths on the West Coast.

    I saw MBM twice in '89 in Houston. I haven't listened to "Storm The Studio" in a long, long time, but damn, I was into that.

    The Dallas-->>>Houston ecstacy-scene never had an "impact" on me, per se, as I was never into disco biscuits.

    PS Meat Beat were really, really fucking loud.

    You and Chamillionaire...but even if you never indulged yourself you were still exposed to the music that was specifically selected to drive the biscuit-munchers, no?

    Guilty as charged. But I think that Cham probably falls into the "don't get high off your own supply" category, whereas I fell into the "straight-edge but would still like to get laid" category.

    Both of y'all need some pink turbo's in your lives.



















    Or not.

    MBM's 99% isn't *that* bad...and in moderation, Renegade Soundwave can be good.


    There was a time when snowboard video soundtracks were all about Consolidated and MC 900 Ft Jesus. There was a time before that when they were all about Joe Satriani.

    THE PHANTOM (IT'S IN THERE)

    excellent track, one of my faves from that era

  • MC 900 Ft Jesus


    Texas, stand up!

    For some reason, I was thinking about his first single today ("Shut Up"). Props to DJ Zero.

    I saw these guys live in about 98' and they still had it. What was crazy is my girl and I were listening to a Doors bootleg durring the day and when we get to the show they start off with a big Jim Morrison cut and paste from the same LP we were listen to before the show!!!!! That was pretty mind blowing. I felt like they were better live than on record. Some of there record stuff is cool, but live they really pushed it and remixed things on the fly. I didn't know much about them before the show but I walk out with respect.
