seen the slowed down version of Ace Of Spades by in the advert by Lemmy on TV?

now its the Nutty Boys turn with a slowed down version of Baggy Trousers (also in conjunction with the track's 30th birthday)

The advert will get its first airing on Saturday 4th June (at half-time in the England v Switzerland match) and the track will available to download on Sunday 5th. It's called 'Le Grand Pantalon (Baggy Trousers)

sneak peak




cheers to MIS

Looking forward to hearing the new version of 'Baggy Trousers'. A year late for the 30th anniversary though.

I'm looking forward to this like a hole in the head. Baggy Trousers is a Classic Madness song and should be left well alone.

...but isn't it asign of a classic song that it can be reworked in such a fashion? I think so.

There's a sample of it somewhere on Amazon, it appears to have a totally different melody to the original Confused Best left alone, I think as well

Post subject: Kronenberg Advert Reply with quote

Lads, we're missing the point here. It's the opportunity to get unprecedented publicity that has inspired the cover. They are going to get 2 full minutes at half time during an England match with probably about 10 million people watching. That is astounding

2 full minutes for one advert is massive in terms of tv adverts. That is 4-5 normal adverts and then add in the size of audience at prime time. Massive pat on the back to their managers Blackburn and Gadsdon for this scoop. Any bad of any size would kill for this publicity and nothing in the band's history compares. When DJs refuse to play new Madness tunes, any publicity needs to be seized upon. How Folgate got to No 5 without airplay for any of the singles is an under-rated achievement.

In terms of what it will sound like, the samples thus far tell you nothing of what it will sound like as it's all mashed up. I would like to hear more Madness tunes slowed down. It's only when you hear My Girl live with the slow intro that you realise how nice a melody it is. Absolutely beautiful piano and any time I hear it, I always say I'd love to hear My Girl slowed down from start to finish. At its crazy pace, the brilliance of the melody gets lost. You could say that about quite a few Madness numbers. Playing music at 100 miles an hour tends to make a tune unappreciated sometimes I think. Our House is another example of this. The melancholy of the song gets lost in the version we all know and love.

Judge for yourselves...

or

www.amazon.co.uk/Le-Grand-Pantalon-Baggy-Trousers/dp/B0051TPHB2

but to me it sounds like a totally different melody! At least the lyrics remain the same Smile

It sounds like a totally different beat as well, with no skank, which means it isn't even ska.

Who gives a monkey's it ain't Ska,they ain't a Ska band !!!

It sounds to me that the slowed down version would sit well on The Liberty CD which is a masterpiece by the way.

It's for an advert on the telly and showed you what bands used to be like "when Britain did have talent"

You're right, come to think of it. It was a case of my false memory adding a skank.
