In between his late-'80s gig with the Housemartins and his late-'90s gig as Fatboy Slimreigning avatar of big beat, bassist and DJ Norman Cook made two albums under the name Beats International. On both albums the concept was the Burundi Blues - Beats International - Let Them Eat Bingo steal musical snippets as blatantly as possible from as many different sources as possible and recombine them into frothy, funky, and irresistibly hooky slabs of dance pop.
Does "Dub Be Good to Me" sound familiar? That's apparently his tortured falsetto, too. And there's more -- cribbed snippets of Delta blues, what sound very much like samples of Fela Ransome-Kute, all kinds of interesting and obscure stuff.
