BLOGS HELP REMIND US OF A TIME WHEN PARTY BEN WAS COOL
Or at least knew cool Australians. Was it really almost three years ago when me and Team9 attempted to combine as many songs as possible with a hit pop-punk album, in what was misreported as a desperate attempt to get Damon Albarn to pay attention to us? Wow, those were the days. Since then, as we all know, I personally thumbed my nose at the apparent promise of American Edit by producing "Wipeout Taffy"; Team9 has gone on to bigger and better things, although he still writes now and then. But like they say, the internet never forgets, and a brand new blog, called the Mashup Preservation Society, has taken it upon themselves to remind people of our glory days. They've posted a lovely couple of paragraphs about the album, calling it "the moment in mashup history where the standard for all modern mashups was set." Well, I don't know about that, but either way, they have a zshare rar file of the full album (something a now-yellowing cease-and-desist prevents me from offering), as well as a fully-functional compendium of YouTube videos for each and every track. Neat, and thanks MPS, whoever you are...
