Meanest Man Contest's "We Blame You" is the first in a series of
odds-and-ends EPs from the San Francisco/Los Angeles
hip-hop/electronic pop duo. Three remixes of MMC faves – by
Paris-based producer D├ębruit (Musique Large), San Francisco laptop
king Mochipet (Daly City Records), and Dutch up-and-comer Multi-Panel
– are rounded out by a cover from Roman Ruins (Gold Robot) and a new
MMC track.

Zippy's Homemade Drumitar




I'm inspired, of course, by Futureman of Bela Fleck and the Flecktones, with his amazing Synthaxe Drumitar covered in touch pads. A friend of mine had this Rock-Band guitar controller that wasn't working with his XBOX anymore, so i gutted it. I bought the BOSS DR-110 off of Craig's List and it was a perfect match: 6 non-velocity-sensitive drum pads and a clearly marked circuit board. My original plan was to install the entire drum machine into the controller, and just have an audio output. Logistically though, the cat-5 connection made more sense. AND because it's detachable (thanks to a female-to-female coupler) I still have a working drum machine i can use without the guitar!!!

This isn't the best performance, i guess, but hey, this thing is brand new!!!!

MY NEXT PLAN involves the installation of a Moog 3P circuit into my cat.
