  • Kazoo Friendly Bangers

    I have an all too these days rare DJ set to play in a week or so and I'm fretting as it's a tag on to a spoken word event, I've had a few of these gigs in the past and the transition is more than a little tricky in getting the cerebal mindset mobilised.
    Anyways, in this year's Essential Selection The Avalanches deftly deployed Temple City Kazoo Orchestra take on Stayin' Alive
    which has led me down the road of bulk buying up a mass pack of kazoos as way of gimmick for audience participation.
    Now I need to build a set around the gimmick.
    Temple City also cover the Stones Miss You
    from there staright off the top of my head I can think of
    D.A.F. - Der Mussolini
    Pigbag - Papa's Got A Brand New Pigbag
    The 45 King - 9000 Number
    as two chirpychirpy bangers.
    any others of similar ilk gratefully receieved XJB

      Freedom 'Get up and dance'.

      900 Number is sax, not kazoo - there's a smart t-shirt ...

          Is it just records to play along on kazoo? If so 303 laden acid house tracks would be my choice. Josh Wink's Higher States of Consciousness played by a small kazoo orchestra would be something to behold.

              Crosstown Traffic. (most people will think it's a kazoo anyway).

                This track ain't on any of their LP's and as such is a bit pricey.

                But it is Kazoo-tastic...

                Fleas the size of rats suck on a rat the size of a cat....

                Not As Great As His Very Best, But Pretty Much As Great As Most Anyone Else's.

                  How should I tactfully phrase this... is the event for the "general public"? I'd go in, all guns blazing on a populist race to the lowest common denominator with "Pick Up The Pieces" Average White Band and end your set on "You Can Call Me Al" by Paul Simon. Trust me, I've been doing this nearly 30 years...
                  Club stuff:

                    I'm also guessing the kazoo participation will most likely dry up after a handful of songs, with maybe a few enthusiastic types keeping going for the rest of the night (whether or not you'd like them to stop)

                      I'd get a didgeridoo player in to keep the atmosphere going. My experience of didgeridoo players is that once they get started they'll go on for all eternity.
