Saw the 'Mark Ronson: Here Comes The Fuzz' (CD) for 50p, at my local ASDA this afternoon. Not my cup of tea, but a steal if you like him.

Anyway, best online price appears to be £3.93 (WHSmith, The Hut etc), so this is a nice little saving if you're into this sort of thing.

BTW, 50p was the 'standard' shelf price - it wasn't on sale or special!


CD Description
----------------
Loaded with guest artists and packed with danceable beats, DJ Mark Ronson's first record, Here Comes the Fuzz, is less a showcase for the New York-based artist's turntable skills and more of a radio-friendly pop-rap party album. A rising star on the NYC club scene since the late '90s, the occasional Tommy Hilfiger model and son of glam rock icon guitarist Mick Ronson previously produced tracks for other hip downtown scenesters, including Saturday Night Live regular Jimmy Fallon as well as singer Nikka Costa and rapper Sean Paul -- both of whom return the favor here. Much in the same way as DJ Shadow's Endtroducing... or the Avalanches' Since I Left You used the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique as their template to display an eclectic and voracious record-collecting habit, Ronson's Here Comes the Fuzz mixes funk, hip-hop, soul, and rock into an "everything goes when you're having fun" cocktail. While never displaying the innovative vision or giddy melody-mixing heights of either of those albums, Here Comes the Fuzz does still resonate with the pulse of youthful ego driven by libido and hot wax. To these ends, rappers Ghostface Killah and Nate Dogg take the mic over a funky cowbell and the string section of Dennis Coffey's "Scorpio" on "Ooh Wee." Similarly, Mos Def and M.O.P. add Brooklyn street cred to Ronson's catchy if a bit obvious co-opting of Lenny Kravitz's hit "On the Run." Perhaps most interesting though, are Ronson's attempts at actual songwriting such as on the cosmopolitan disco plea "High," featuring vocalist Aya, and the punk ?ogo of "I Suck" with Rivers Cuomo, which finds the Weezer frontman doing his best "Let's Go to Bed"-era Robert Smith warble against a sample from Labi Siffre's "Too Late."

this makes me laugh the way hes in with all the hip hop crew:

There is a line in 'OOH wee' where Saigon goes:

So if you get out of line then, that your ass is mine
And I'mma run up in your house, put it in your mouth
I might be new to the game
But it's a damn shame, what a brother bout to do to the game
I got Mark Ron' backin' me up

...lol...fairly handy to have ronsons backup in the hood i would have thought:roll:

not voting it cold ....but please nothin worse that a whitey trying to be in with the hip hop crew...

edit:: jesus just read the description above of this and it compares it to DJ Shadow's Endtroducing... or the Avalanches' Since I Left You used the Beastie Boys' Paul's Boutique...what a fukin joke thes are real albums ....oh dear

Tell that to Eminem.

I suppose it's a disgrace that bands like Bloc Party try to play 'white music'?

If ignorance is bliss then someone should wipe that smile off your face.

Eminem is different he comes from disadvantaged background and has struggled and that is where hip hop came from originally...all these collaborations are making a mockery of the spirit of rebellion that hip hop stands for...remember public enemy etc?.....Ronson is privileged and the nearest he has been to the hood or hard times is seeing it on tv.....For him to be asscociated with nate dog etc talking about sticking guns in people mouths and backing them up etc is a joke.

"Ronson was born into a wealthy family at the Wellington Hospital, St John's Wood, north London, England, the son of writer and socialite Ann Dexter-Jones and one-time band manager and real estate entrepreneur Laurence Ronson.[3] His parents are of Ashkenazi Jewish descent, with ancestors from Austria, Russia, and Lithuania, and Ronson was brought up in Conservative Judaism.[4][5] Ronson is related to British Conservative politicians Sir Malcolm Rifkind and Leon Brittan,[6] and has younger twin sisters, Charlotte Ronson, a fashion designer, and Samantha Ronson a singer and DJ. After his parents broke up, his mother married Foreigner guitarist Mick Jones, which contributed to a childhood surrounded by music.[7] Ronson has been "best friends" with Sean Lennon, son of the late John Lennon, since the age of thirteen."


also its not about the music it sounds fine to me..its about patronising whities using hip hop to give gain cred because its trendy to into hip hop...as for bloc party I can see how they relate to this at least two of them are white and they are a rock band.

Also do you have to jump straight in with insults just because someone differs with your opinion.....you don't know anything about me and to call me ignorant is a presumptuous and says to me you are someone who cant really express your opinions or debate your point of view......

So you can only be involved in hip hop if you come from an under privileged background? Kanye West is one of the biggest stars in hip hop and he wasn't exactly disadvantaged!

You brought race into it, I was attempting to continue your thought process along its logical path and wondered whether non-whites were allowed to make "white" music.

Your statement was ignorant, the fact that you use terms like whitey infers a certain level of ignorance.
#14
daalphamale your ignorant. Whats colour got to do with good music?

also i think hes making a reference to mark ron backing him up musicaly as the rest of the line goes

I got Mark Ron' backin' me up
I'm already on a song with Nate Dogg, that's why you wanna hate, dog?
Here's a warning, when Mark bring the horns in
Say the wrong thing, and you won't see the morning
You gon' get dealt with man, yo Nate, man
let's ride on these bitches, come on

again you are asuming things about people seems to be a character trait ....

kanye wests father was a photographer with the black panthers and K was born into the politics around the black movement...it's about integrity struggle, rebellion as I explained earlier....none of which applies to Ronson...

again you have missed the point your opinion differs to mine... I haven't insulted you....you have jumped in again showing you are not capabale of debate around this topic :roll:

..... yet again we have another person who can't discuss this without insult...thats your view on it i see it differently..live with it:roll:


Colour has everything to do with music in this context...white people have been robbing black music and passing it off as there own since elvis presley or before....Ronson is another in the long line of fake middle class whites creating a pastiche of what hip hop really is..... in his case he steals from everyone...so at least hes consistant....

And your point is...I am pretty sure that Mark Ronson didn't force the acts he has worked with to collaborate and lets not forget the only colour that matters is green ;-)
