‘Every Man and Woman is a Star’ - from ‘Instant Digest’
Instant Digest is the work of Astronaut No.1 (aka Bob Bhamra of WNCL Recordings).
Simon Reynolds described the project as “a monstrously compressed synopsis of the history of pop that crams five decades into just twenty minutes”. Each year from 1960-2009 is represented by an extreme, but carefully structured, 30-second cut-up of a classic album from that year. Bhamra shows impeccible taste in selecting Ultramarine’s ‘Every Man and Woman is a Star’ to represent 1992.
Instant Digest was created for the art/music blog Modyfier and the full work is here.
