I received an email today advising me to check Low InCom. I went and was greeting with this message in very large and excited letters:
NEW FATBOY SLIM ALBUM COMING SOON!!!! MAYBE Y’ALL KNEW THAT ALREADY, BUT I DON’T LISTEN TO RADIO.. THIS IS NEWS TO ME!
Now, I don’t know what exactly he was referring to when he said that, but let’s try to figure it out . He may be referring to the new mix cd “On the Floor at The Boutique. That’s not really an album. It’s really just a recording of one of his DJ sets. Very few of the songs on the cd are by him, they’re just mixed by him. It’s also not exactly new. It’s just now coming to the States. So, it’s not really an album (although it is very good and I recommend getting it, I got an import of it a while ago). There are two other possibilities, but I didn’t see mention of these on the site linked to as the source of his info. It could be “Fatboy Slim’s Greatest Remixes,” a collection of remixes that Fatboy has done that has just recently come out. Again, I don’t consider this an album. The last possibility is “The Fatboy Slim/Norman Cook Collection,” a newly released (I believe just this week in fact) compilation of a bunch of Fatboy’s older, and in his opinion I assume, better songs and remixes. This isn’t really a new album either because it’s not new stuff and it has a lot of remixes on it. So, which did he mean? Or, maybe he’s not talking about any of these, and there actually is a new album! Maybe! Come on man, tell us!
