World of Splatt collects the best work of plunderphonics madmen
Splatt Wreckchords and Artwrecks, as chosen by Some Assembly
Required's Jon Nelson. It is an eighteen song selection
of mangled pop songs and clever audio collages. The tracks are
sometimes accessible ("The 60's Were So Beautiful, Man,"
"No Commercial Potential"), and sometimes not so much ("Caution: Rafall,"
and any avid music fan should be able to point out all the familiar songs that have been mashed into the mess.
Splatt's best compositions are those that combine pop melody
samples with a humorous edge - "New Uni Tour," for example,
lays a Disneyworld ride instructional tape over a repeating U2
sample. Meanwhile, "Namebrand Daddy" juxtaposes old
fashioned voice recordings with the "Name Game," and "Laughterstruck"
combines AC/DC's "Thunderstruck" with profuse
laughter to produce a particularly unique experience. World of
Splatt is a record filled with great plunderphonic pieces and a
wealth of clever gags. Good fun.
