Whirlyball III - Dark Meat and Diplo
Another whirlyball concert in Atlanta has this seven inch for sale only at Criminal records. The rest of us will have to wait until it's officially repressed for sale on Chunklet.
I think Whirlyball is some kind of weird venue specific sport, kind of like bumper car Jai-alai, and I guess in Atlanta they also have concerts at these weird basketball size court spaces.
Dark Meat looks like a huge collective of people and some tracks are a capella and others are blues rock kind of JSBX style, lots of horns and giant choruses. Diplo of course is a DJ instrumentalist from way back considering....and that's going to make for a very interesting show....in the middle of this crazy court/bumper car stadium.
I'm considering a move to Atlanta, sipping Hennessy with Morrissey.
On one side, Dark Meat cover Iggy Pop's classic jam "Success" and, on the other side, Diplo deconstructs it on a track entitled "Unsuccessful Space Jam."
