The Man with the Iron Fists

by oddbodkins on June 29, 2012

OK, i’m probably stretching the limits of what constitutes “beat appropriate,” but, fuck you, it’s my blog.

And we do have the RZA behind the boards for this one.  Throw in some Black Keys for good measure (clearly not beat, but, goddamn, if they’re not best grungy garage blues slop band on the planet, i don’t know who is).

And then mix in kung-fu goodness on an epic scale.  Forget about Django Unchained, The Man with the Iron Fists is the Tarantino flick that is making me turgid.

Yes, yes, yes, i know.  i’m a terrible blogger for leaving my legions of fans (two is a legion, right?) with so little content over the past month or so.  i also beat my woman ’til i get satisfied, drink out of the carton, wear age-inappropriate clothes and regularly attend Nickelback fan club meetings.  i’m a bad, bad man.  But you’ll forgive me, right?  How about if i share the latest from OB superhero beathead Pogo and his take on what i consider the greatest movie of my generation?  No?  Alright, i’ll let you touch me there, but don’t tell anybody.  i can’t have everybody in the Interwebs hitting me up, after all.

Gather round, children, as today we read from the Book of Funk, verse one (because as Dogfather George taught us, it’s always on the one).  “And lo, from the north there came DEAD HORSE BEATS, a beathead with a love for gospel.”  Built over the course of eight months, the artists also known as Patrick Wade’s latest, Vespers, contains 53 samples of gospel, found sound, soul and funk put together with added banjo, guitar, harmonica, synths, organs and ambient recorded stuff where DHB thought it would benefit the sound.  Somebody get this man a job in HR, as he clearly knows all about benefits.  Not to beat a dead horse, but if i’ve said it once, this will make it twice:  it’s all about the source material, kids.  DHB lovingly takes a distinct genre and bends it to his will, transforming and creating something distinctly non-gospel whilestill retaining all sorts of spirituality.  This is becoming his hallmark, as an earlier project focused on 1940s/WWII-era swing music proves.  Stick with it, sir.  Now if only i could talk him into a 1980s beatbox exclusive special…
