MP3s, GORK and Yonks.

Bent-BestOf-Japan-DiscDearest of friends, here are some news for you! First of all, I’ve updated the MP3 Clips page, and so you can now listen to 57 new clips, or grab a playlist of them all with a total running time of over 105 minutes! An update of the remix section on that page will follow.

Various tidbits have been added to parts of the discography as well, and I’m awaiting some records I’ve ordered to be able to add even more images. More on that later!

Simon has been busy with Pincer Movement, whose ”G.O.R.K. EP” is out soon. Samples below:

Nail isn’t resting either, with his own 12″ called ”Yonks” and participation on a 12″ from Fear Of Flying with his tune ”Glazed”. Grab them from Juno using these links:


Here’s a classic mashup from way back. Bents ”Always” and Whitney Houstons ”I Wanna Dance With Somebody”. I don’t know who did it, and I haven’t been able to find it in better quality. Do you know anything about this? Let me know!

More mashups from the old Bent forums comes from (defunct?) Radio Earwax: Act of Dogs ”Always The Sun” which mixes ”Always” with The Beloved’s ”The Sun Rising”, and Phil n’ Dogs ”Falling into the waters deep”, mashing up ”The Waters Deep” with Julee Cruises ”Falling”. Available in normal and beatless versions.

Here are two of my own terrible mashups: ”Sweet Chime O’ Mine” mixes ”Sunchime” (from the ”Comin’ Back” single) with Flatpacks cover of ”Sweet Child O’ Mine” with Katty Heath on vocals. Kind of meta. The second one is just a simple music + rap acapella: ”Invisible Pedestrian” with Roots Manuvas ”Witness (One Hope)”.

Do you know of any other Bent mashups? Let me know!
