You Cower From Kompressor Might

Kompressor crush American burger. It is the fearsome visage that drives the mighty K into the dark parts of my heart. And of course the synthesizer might.

A couple of DJs in the Seattle goth/industrial scene decided last year this guy was the funniest thing they'd ever heard, and for a while you'd occasionally hear "Vitamins are Good" or "Kompressor Does Not Dance" right after Wumpscut or Project Pitchfork or some such...

kompressor's cover of beck's "debra" completely changed my life. i can't listen to it in the same way anymore.

As the MeFI search engine only indexes FPP's, Pretty_Generic, you might consider setting an example and providing a description for indexing and us.

Helps eliminate DPs and all that.

DBAPaul - a search for "Kompressor" or any part of the URLs would find this post.

For trainspotters, a little GoogleNapstering will usually turn up many of the tracks that are no longer available from Kompressor's site. They're worth tracking down.

Wow, I thought you'd all know about Kompressor; I've known about him for at least year or so now. Funny stuff I must say.

I guess I should of searched; I could of had a front page post. :-)

His cover of "The Girl From Ipanema" is awesome. "And when she passes, each one she passes goes AUUUUUGHHRRGHH!"

Also, don't miss "Rappers We Crush" with MC Frontalot. (It even mentions the Muppets, which ties in nicely with aaron's comment...)

Oh, duh, the "Ipanema" cover is the first link!

Heard of him via MC Frontalot, who has a rather fabulous duet about the Germans taking over the world. (mirror here)

Kompressor funny. Check Yat-Kha (MS asshats require latest version of MediaPlayer) for more crazy mad singing styles.
'I heard this on Radio 3's Late Junction when driving one night and nearly crashed the car, it was so good. Yat-Kha are from Eastern Russia, Albert Kuvezin does "Tuvan throat singing" and it's like nothing I've ever heard before.'
New music without frontiers?
'Kuvezin downloads what he wants from the Internet and lets a variety of influences seep into his music. His band, Yat-Kha, plays horsehair diddles and sings throaty tunes about riding the steppes and chasing girls on stallions, all with an unmistakable hard-rock feel. '

Yay, Kompressor again. So he's doing covers now?

For more tongue-in-cheek electronic fun, try S.P.O.C.K.. These guys are disturbingly good, especially considering the snicker-worthy subject matter ^__^

Thank god--until I bothered to check the links, I thought this was going to be annoying machismo about some guy's Mercedes...
