and what's a Teacher without Lessons?

Someone with more time than me should go through the cover versions of Teachers that Soulwax and some others have done and add comments for those.

datawrangler, it's a song from Daft Punk's "Homework," released nearly 15 years ago.

I always thought they were saying Guy Called Gerald, not Jammin Gerald.
posted by loriginedumonde at 8:47 PM on August 11, 2011


I'm pretty sure they're saying Dave Clark, not Dave Carter.

Wow, hellojed, that first Paul Johnson track (the one linked to his name) if f'in' *fierce*! Nice post! (Still working my way through them).

I spent basically a whole year doing nothing but going to school, coming home, and playing Goldeneye on mute while I listened to Homework. And then talking on the phone for a couple hours before I went to sleep. This gave me physical chills of nostalgia.

Paul Johnson's Get Get Down was the first music video I downloaded. I was somehow astounded that people would record video clips and share them online. But then I realized videos took up a lot more space than just the audio, and there was no good way to preview samples before downloading the whole bloody thing (back before YouTube, when IRC was where you got things like this).

Where was I? Oh, right. Nostalgia. Thanks!

Probably Ashley Beedle, rather than Beatto. Also a member of X-Press 2.

And at the end, I thought they said Surgeon is in the house.

This post and that list makes me happy. Thanks!

Is this something I would have to be older to understand?
posted by guster4lovers at 12:02 AM on August 12, 2011


Love that K. ALexi track. The other two tracks on the record are great too. I had to replace that record once or twice from overuse. Fun(ny) post!

You're not alone, but I wonder if they meant this Surgeon instead of Tony Childs.

more ashley beedle (of black science orchestra) - probably their most recognizable track, which lifts a beautiful breakdown bit of this track.

Thanks for the fixes guys! Yeah, my lyrics source was a bit dodgy, so I'd get disappointed when I'd do a search (while changing the spelling/etc) and it wouldn't come up with anything.

Mostly I made this after discovering that just about every house track ever was uploaded to YT, and I started recognizing the artist names from "Teachers", so I started going through them. It provided a nice cross-section of house music in the early/mid 90's, as well as some other gems.
posted by hellojed at 5:44 AM on August 12, 2011


Some more corrections - DJ Deya should be DJ Deeon, Mark Dana is Mike Dearborn, DJ Snow is DJ Skull, Tom Allen is maybe Todd Edwards, Jerry Carter is Derrick Carter, as mentioned Dave Carter is Dave Clarke, Ashley Beedle.

I'm not sure about the last Surgeon(?). He was good but there were other bigger Detroit names in that scene (Erik Martin, DJ Godfather, Assault); maybe Tony Childs or they're not saying Surgeon at all.

Helluva lot better than Eiffel 65's My Console.

Sorry, I was obsessed with E65 for a few weeks in '99 after hearing that song. I listened to anything I could find, and then I realized there were better things to do with my time.

I guess I'm not part of the target audience. Other than George Clinton, I haven't heard of any of the people in the first list.
posted by Billiken at 9:35 AM on August 12, 2011


And Dr. Dre. But I can't name one of his songs.
posted by Billiken at 9:36 AM on August 12, 2011


Can someone give me a precis of what this post is about? I know a few of the names (Lil Louis had a top 10 hit when I was seven with French Kiss) but initially I thought it was about the Channel 4 programme.

mippy: "Can someone give me a precis of what this post is about? I know a few of the names (Lil Louis had a top 10 hit when I was seven with French Kiss) but initially I thought it was about the Channel 4 programme."

"Teachers" is a track by French electronic group Daft Punk off their 1997 album "Homework" in which they call out many influential house and techno pioneers. In a robot voice, of course.

thank you. I didn;t get round to getting Homework back in the day, no matter how much I liked seeing that confusing dog video, and I was combing YouTube for something else at the time. I'll come back to this post to investigate later.

is it considered uncouth to walk around one's place of business singing "bald-headed scally-wag YOU KNOW THAT SHIT AIN'T REAL"? well we're about to find out
