POKEPOLKA!! Filling grandpas everywhere with enmity & envy, worldsbestgrandpa burst geriatrically onto the OCR scene back in February with a super-fun bluegrass take on "Kakariko," and now follow that up with some POKEMANZ JAMZ in a similar vein - here's the submission email in all of its unadulterated glory:
"Welcome to our Pokémon Center.
We can heal your Pokémon to perfect health.
Shall we heal your Pokémon?
Ok, may I see your Pokémon?
Thank you for waiting.
Your Pokémon are fully healed.
We hope to see you again."
The Poké Center theme played on button box accordion, banjo and some flatfoot dancing!
Since the courts have ordered me to refrain from producing electronic music because my beats were too nasty and deemed a threat to public health, I am forced to settle with lowly acoustic instruments of the worst kind. Hopefully, I will still be able to corrupt the youths with a lousy button box (stolen from the dying arms of a Polish immigrant) and a surly banjo (lifted from a drunken homeless). My inspiration for this piece was the bottle of whiskey I also appropriated from said homeless, which would explain the very unprofessional flatfoot dancing you hear on the track. Please don't tell my mother! Hail Sagan.
I'd like to just clarify at this juncture that we at OCR do not advocate stealing from dying immigrants of ANY origin OR from the homeless, sober or otherwise. We do endorse hailing Sagan, though, so I guess it washes out. Larry writes:
"Very short, but it never repeats verbatim, which is mission critical for ANYTHING under 2 minutes; it's got to substantially evolve, not cut-and-paste ideas. Not a sharp recording, but it's perfectly fine for our purposes and has context. Love the spirited performances, variations on the source tune and the instrument tradeoffs between the accordion and banjo. Sometimes the source tune would feel a bit too understated during the banjo leading, but it wasn't anything that actually harmed the piece vis-a-vis the standards. Awesome concept and fun execution!"
Ditto all that; it's a knee-slappin', chewin' tobaccy, get-yer-pokemanz-healed-here hoedown. Given the cultural context usually associated with the genre, I'd otherwise expect this healing center to eschew science-based medicine as the devil's work and opt instead for good old-fashioned faith healing, except that the Sagan nod suggests reason. More great, distinct stuff from worldsbestgrandpa; love the variety these mixes are bringing to the table in representing a less common genre, and (just as importantly) representing it WELL!!
