British mad hatter Ergo Phizmiz has a FREE! new on-line 7-song EP of hilarious demolitions of '90s techno club hits. "Now That's What We Pump At The Party" sounds more like wheezing, shambolic circus music then house. His new band The Midnight Florists cover C & C Music Factory, Dee-Lite, and other half-forgotten (if not totally forgotten) one-shit blunders "...arranged for acoustic, electronic, homemade, and toy instruments." Everyone sounds like they're having a blast.

Never even heard of Eiffel 65 before, but the haunting waltz version of their song "Blue (Da Ba Dee)" led me to check out the original. BIG mistake. Needless to say, Sir Phizmiz & Co. have improved upon these songs by several orders of magnitude.

Good find - this album is perfect for games of 'name that tune'. I must admit I wouldn't have been able to name those responsible for the da ba dee nonsense - although I do remember the tune, from the days when I needed to get out less. The horror, the horror...
