Beatles and Beach Boys mash-up…not so good


CBC writer Stephen Cole takes the DJ behind the “Beachles” mash-up of Sgt. Pepper’s and Pet Sounds to task for, well, kinda screwing up two great albums. He goes on to praise other mash-ups, and it’s a pretty even handed assessment of remixing culture. I’m used to seeing sites praise mash-ups simply because they boldy strike out against antiquated copyright laws (I’m looking at you, Boing Boing), so this article is a refreshing change.
