HOMER's WIMB? (What If Homer Simpson Did an Amoeba What's In My Bag?)

Posted by Billyjam, January 8, 2013 05:00pm | Post a Comment

Ever since Amoeba fan/Simpsons creator Matt Groening recently paid tribute to Amoeba Music by including an Amoeba Music Hollywood fashioned building (renamed Protozoa Records) in the Season 24, Episode 7 Simpsons show titled "The Day The Earth Stood Cool" that aired in early December I have been scratching my head and wondering what if Homer Simpson were to stop into Amoeba for some music shopping? What would he buy? What would be included in a Homer Simpson's WIMB (What's In My Bag?) episode if he were to go crate digging at Amoeba Music? Based on the numerous songs Homer has cited (most well worn Top 40 pop/rock hits that the cartoon character supposedly grew up listening to) and have been featured in episodes in the long running animated series, now in its 24th year, this is my stab at what Homer's WIMB might look like.

Bear in mind that this list only scratches the surface since over the years Groening and company have incorporated such a long list of hit songs into The Simpsons. In fact the show must have racked up quite a bill in copyright fees to license all this popular music for the show. But it is worth it since music often plays such an important role in so many episodes of The Simpsons - especially the Homer related songs. For example, when Homer and Marge pop into the open house next door to them and he imagines buying the house and what it would be like living next door to himself, just how horrible that would be, as he visualizes himself always playing Journey's "Separate Ways" and at way too loud volumes.

New Techno/Electro 12"s Coming This Weekend:



Italoboyz
TECHNO TOWER 12"
MSHIP022

These guys fuse organic and electric sounds and make them collide with elements of jazz and folk. "TECHNO TOWER" and "CHINESE" are a testament to these roots and will turn some heads on the dancefloor. This isn't your average tech house or techno.




Roland Appel
COLD BLOODED REMIX 12"
AUS0923

Deep techno starts the record with "COLD BLOODED." HORSE MEAT DISCO fav "SNOW IN THE SPRINGTIME" gets a full single release, old school disco in every way. DFA darlings RUNAWAY turn it in a slow burning house direction that builds the tension.

New Dubstep/Jungle 12"s Coming This Weekend:

Matt U

JUMP! 12"
WHEELYDEALY003

With drum & bass releases on MOVING SHADOW, TIMELESS, & CYLON, he now turns his attentions to dubstep production with this techy, breakbeat heavy cut. "CLOSER" is a similar sound with a slightly revved up take on things.




Scuba
SPEAK 10" NL004

The London-Berlin axis is in full effect here with a dubstep-meets-techno track that is so deep you could immerse yourself in it. "NEGATIVE" ups the tempo, adds some additional layers of noise & FX, and the occasional dreamy female vocal drifting in and out to nice effect.

TRILINGUAL DANCE... 12"
AFF003

Two club bangers from the Austrian producer. Sounds like "DC microwaved his MicroKorg" on the bumpy, electronic A-side. B/w "TROPICAL HANDS" which has similar Detroit styled synths mixed with glitchy efx but at a more laidback down tempo.



Rob Glennon
NIGHT FREAKS REMIXED 12"
DB3014T 

Here we see techno maestro ORLANDO VOORN and London's PAUL MAC (STIMULUS) tweak out "BASS SHIFTER," whilst the original version of "RATIO" appears alongside the devastating remix by THE PARALLEL. Already charted by DAVE CLARKE, DETROIT GRAND PUBAS, CHYMERA, and more.

Chimpo
LOCK OFF VIP 12"
CON024

The VIP version that SKREAM has been hammering of late, this is some old skool rave madness shoved through a dubstep meat grinder, while "LIKE NO OTHER" is a plodding barge of bass action with layers of FX and vocal snippets heaped on top.

Noah D
HYPNOTIC ELEMENTS EP D12"
SUBWAY011EP 

A 5-track doublepack of some of the best dubstep sounds around at the moment, including the already huge anthem "SEEERIOUSNESSS," the sensual and exotic beauty of "GOT U NOW" and "VIBRATIONZ," and a VIP mix of his classic cut w"UNKNOWN SUSPECT" with NO THING. Dope sh*t!

RON TRENT presents the MASTER PLAN "OBAMA TRIBUTE," a musical tribute to the election of BARACK OBAMA. Two versions of "MELTING POT" (one being the instrumental) combine layered speech excerpts over a dreamy, conga driven deep house beat w/an uplifting piano solo towards the end.

Noze 
MEET ME IN THE TOILET 12" CCS038

"ENCORE" kicks things off with a strong rollin' house bassline and those distinct NOZE pads throughout. Sexy girl vocals tell you to "relax." On the flip is the quirky title cut, a groovy horn party is what you'll find. This goes places where other house doesn't.
