Censorship Used For Good

Check out The BPA's (The Brighton Port Authority aka Fatboy Slim aka Norman Cook) new video for the track Toe Jam. Let's just say they make creative use of censorship.

On a side note, Cook recently told The Sun: "Yes, I am ditching the Fatboy Slim name, but I can’t tell you the new one. I’m going to take the Fifth Amendment on that question and not say because I'll get myself into trouble.”

Anyways, the track features guest spots by David Byrne (Talking Heads) and Dizzee Rascal. And in the video, Norman makes a cameo around minute 2:26 (kinda hard to miss). The single is out on July 7th. I wonder if there is an uncensored version? hahaha

As Fatboy Slim, Cook always released stellar videos. Remember the renegade improvised interpretive dance in Praise You, or how about Christopher Walken's dance moves in Weapon of Choice? Just scroll click through these.

I tend not to say the following sentence when commenting, but this is a great post! I'm a huge fan of David Byrne. Leave it to Norman to re-envent himself in the most a [un]usual-creative way!

Found this on BPA:

Get ready to start hearing Toe Jam everywhere. There was a blogger email thread going around (Palms Out, Brooklyn Vega, Big Stereo, Have Fun Club, Missing Toof, I Heart Comix, etc...) and everybody was talking about the track. The only thing is that it seems the only version floating around is 96kbps (probably a YouTube rip).

So cheers to the first blogger that gets there hands on it!
