The Show: Loose booty

The Herb Whisperer played Elvis Costello‘s 1978 classic “Pump It Up” because allegedly it is sampled in the Beastie Boys’ album Paul’s Boutique, a bona fide treasure trove of samples.

It may explain why Sly & The Family Stone’s “Loose Booty” is now an earworm – it was sampled on the track “Shadrach”. Here’s a video of”Loose Booty” from 1975…

And let’s not forget Elvis Costello, from 1978…

If you want to listen to the Solid Steel Radio Show where DJ’s Cheeba, Moneyshot and Food deconstruct, reimagine and reassemble Paul’s Boutique (and in the process revealing to The Herb Whisperer the presence of Pump It Up on the original), here it is.

The Show: Doctor WTF?

Oh, yes. Disco goldalicious. Mankind‘s disco version of the Dr. Who theme tune!

And in case you wondered what Mankind looked like have a peek below at this classic Top of The Pops performance.

KLF’s “Doctorin’ the Tardis” appearance on the same show 10 years later now makes even more sense.
