Slim Swanee

Slim Swanee: context really is everything – one bootleg (“Marshall’s Been Snookered”, Slim Shady over the Pot Black theme tune) is a giggly novelty to anyone in the UK, but this article makes it a Marcus-ian marriage of song-and-dance past and present. Next up: the David Vines.

(As an aside, “Nobody listens to techno!” is funny BECAUSE the track’s ripping off techno and Eminem is surely in on this joke, and because of course just enough people listen to techno to get in a huff about it. Techno has produced some remarkable and beautiful music – it is also perhaps the most self-important scene on the planet and a bit of teasing is long-overdue.)
