Happy new year! We’re just back from a long overdue vacation, and are picking up the holiday pieces – as its the end of the year, there have been lots and lots of end of year lists, some of which we appeared in – we’d like to extend thanks to everyone who considered us worthy of inclusion, we’re very flattered – there’s far too many to list individually, but we have to link and shout out to Best Of Bootie 2010 and Culture Bully’s Best of 2010 (in which you’ll also find out what our two favourite mashups of the year were too!).

To ring in the new, here’s Johnny Rollerfeet’s ace datamoshing Videotone for “Can’t Be Paranoid” – Major thanks to him for such excellent work!

We’ve done it before and we can do it some more…

A fresh dose of Videotones for Christmas Day! Pete from Butch Auntie, who has done most excellent work this year as Eric’s live video foil, gets spectacularly feline for “Destiny & Tenacity”:

Happy Holidays to you all!!! :)

Out of the record, and into the revolution…

crackdown 2 coverOkay, a bit of big news that we’ve been keeping very quiet about over the last six months, is that we’ve contributed a remix to the new XBox 360 game Crackdown 2 – So whilst steaming your way around the (frankly rather awesome) gameworld, you’ll be hit by versions of tunes by Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, Public Enemy, Creedence Clearwater Revival, The Damned and Blue Oyster Cult, remixed by The Bug, Mistabishi, Dan The Automator, King Cannibal, El-B and Sientific American.

Honoured to be in such excellent company, we’re proud to add to that list our own remix of REM’s “Ignoreland”.

As is the way in such cases, we can’t let you hear the track here – you’ll have to get hold of a copy if you want the full Kleptones-enhanced experience, but believe me it’s worth it – developers Ruffian Games have done a mighty fine job, and pretty much all of the reviews seem to agree…

Quick bit of gig news to add – on 24th July Eric will be heading over to the Czech Republic to headline “Pure Fest”, a one day outdoor event in Mladá Boleslav (about 50km outside Prague). Looks like a seriously diverse range of music on offer, so we’re delighted to be invited to the party – if you’re in the vicinity, get yourself along – It’s our first time in the Czech Republic so it’s sure to be a good one!
