Whoa. Here comes some insane music to get your week off to an off-kilter start. Be forewarned that this isn’t any normal instrumental music and it’s probably one of the longest audio clips I’ll ever have (clocks in at just over 7 minutes). Specifically when it comes from an album called “Electronic Cartoon Music From Hell,” you know it’s gonna be nutty. Let me start by saying, that it’s painfully obvious that these musicians have some extreme chops for playing very technical music.
What makes this a choice for Single of the Day is not the fact that its easy to remember. Well, actually yes and no. You won’t likely be able to hum along to any of the songs on this disc. But you will hopefully recognize how dementedly cool it is and how well crafted and played it is. The first thing I remember from the moment I heard the first track was that I laughed out loud. Seriously, who writes this stuff? I have the feeling I could but I really don’t feel personally inspired to, however I really love the humor that is infused with this CD. You can hear the imaginary cartoon characters interacting with each other.
In fact, I had an idea for a cartoon show about a year ago, maybe two. Now that I’ve said that, its probably wise to just come out and give the cartoon title and it’s two main characters. Thus it will be set in stone as to who really came up with the idea. Then hopefully someone will steal it from this blog and do so without permission so that I can sue them for all the royalties I’m owed, and then re-take control and ownership.
What’s my cartoon? Pulpy and Squeezy. They are a couple of Oranges that are going through life attempting to not become orange juice and this is their saga. Now, go ahead and steal the idea. Should I find a cartoon about two pieces of fruit and anything similar in name, expect a call from my lawyer. As it’s now officially presented to the world on July 24th, 2006. Try getting a copyright date before I do. :-). Just so you know, it is already copywritten, so I guess it really doesn’t matter, cause I already have proof.
Enough about my cartoon idea. I think if you’re doing a cartoon of your own, it should have this crazy edge that Electrocution 250 could give it. There’s something a lot of cartoons are missing, really good well produced, insane music. I suppose when my Pulpy and Squeezy cartoon sees the light of day I will license some music from Electrocution 250. Until then, I’ll be happy to pop this “Electronic Cartoon Music From Hell” in once and a while and imagine what P & S will do for the adventure of the episode.
I don’t expect you to understand this choice. But I do expect and demand that you respect the talent that went into this song and its subsequent CD. I would love it if you bought it and I’m sure the musicians/band would too. They’d probably love you more than I could.
Do you think this makes good Cartoon music? Write me a comment and let me know.
