'Some Assembly' Disassembled
A decade before Girl Talk became famous for mashing up rock and hip-hop samples, there was "Some Assembly Required," which also throws in news bites, preacher sermons, kangaroo mating calls -- you name it. For 12 years sonic wizard Jon Nelson has been weirding out (Radio) listeners and scaring many a late-night driver into questioning their sobriety level, but "Assembly" is about to become a thing of the past...
"I think I've said just about all I can say on the subject -- for now, anyway," said Nelson, who also wants to make time for himself as a new dad and a record maker. To mark the finale, he's issuing an appropriately madcap compilation CD titled "50/50," featuring 50 tracks that are 50 seconds long and contain at least 50 percent recycled audio material. Get it at some-assembly-required.net.
