NAKED PEOPLE!!

The title is both accurate, and will hopefully increase my search redirect hits. Go me!

Righto, this one's going to be breaking the mold a bit. Norman Cook, aka Fatboy Slim, has been defining our generation's music for a long bloody time now. While one would think he might eventually start to get dated, he seems to keep coming up with crafty ways to encapsulate his fans.

This time, it comes in the form of a super group. He's pulled together a team for his new project Brighton Port Authority, of which you might recognize a few names (Iggy Pop, David Byrne, Pete York, Dizzee Rascal). Up to this point, very little has been released from the project with the exception of a couple of tracks; one featuring Iggy Pop and one with David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal. Based on the current record, it is looking like Cook is intending to release an album of electronically backed pop songs, similar to what the Gorillaz did.

Another thing that the fat man is doing is wisely using internet viral media to hype the project up. It helps that he has a BRILLIANT video of a bunch of naked people dancing around. In short, if you didn't like this song before, you will after seeing a bunch of TnA. Oh, not to mention, the wheelmill bit at the end is fucking hilarious.

That song was awesome and the video was hilarious. Great find.

"he seems to keep coming up with crafty ways to encapsulate his fans."

So does Fatboy Slim summarize his fans in short sentences, or just he trap them in some sort of pill shaped prison. You decide.
