AUDIO: Meet the Beachles

I don’t know how many of you have heard some of the Fabs mashups.  Some are good, some are great.  This is an interesting take on The Beatle’s mashup phenomenon.  I think it’s quite good.  Here’s what we’ve read from the mashup artist’s website.

Beach Ya to It.Below you will find a track-for-track mash-up of the Beach Boys’ Pet Sounds with the Beatles’ Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band. Of course, I say “mash-up” because I wouldn’t know what else to call it. It’s really more of an abstract record, but like some of my other projects it’s also a commentary on bootleg culture. Some impolite halfwit was asking why people always compare these records, and so I’ll let Paul McCartney and Brian Wilson answer that question.

If ever two records screamed out to be combined, it’s these two. This was created to entertain friends, and I’d be a total bastard if I didn’t give some credit where it is due. This was made at the suggestion of two friends of mine, Adam Wolak and Neil Keener. Sorry it took so long, guys. 100% of the audio here is taken from the two records and various session recordings, and none of it has been created from scratch. Also, please be warned: this record is extremely noisy in places, and it’s not for everyone. If you can’t take a little dissonance, you may want to stay away entirely. It’ll probably be awhile before the cover’s done, too. Very happy listening, ladies and gents.

I humbly present: The Beachles.

  1. […] Just a quick update on a recent post that we made available to you all.  We had posted a link to The Beatles/Beach Boys mashup a week ago.  It was a great work that mixed and mashed Sgt. Pepper with Pet Sounds.  It was an interesting meeting of two giants.  It does look now, however, that EMI has finally caught wind of the mashup album, and ordered a cease and desist order to the mashup artist.  Bad news for all of you looking for the album links.  It is now gone.  Here’s an update from the artist’s page.  He is calling a boycott on Capitol/EMI….here’s an excerpt from his page.
