So let's get a little more formal about things, since I've put information up all over the place and should probably centralize at least some of this stuff. I'll do it in the form of an FAQ even though I've literally not once been asked a single question about this thing. So either the people interested trust me implictly or are just as fuckin' nuts as I am.

So what the hell is this?

Basically, think of it as fanfiction for the Neil Cicierega "Mouth" trilogy, which were part mashup mixtape, part concept album about memetics. This one involves Mario, though, specifically the music from Super Mario Galaxy 2.

And while I say 'fanfiction' it is itself a mashup album. This isn't a written thing, though there is, in a way, a cosmology underpinning it.

So it's a mashup album? You said 'coming soon'; is there a release date?

1. Yes. C'mon, question strawman, pay some fucking attention for once. Jeez. I just said it was a mashup album.
2. April Fool's Day. April First. I mean, fuck's sake, this is a comedy mashup album.

Why Super Mario Galaxy 2? Is this related to the Mouth cosmology somehow?

So if you look up in one of the first few teaser pictures I posted in the thread, you'll notice I showed a composite picture from the ending of Super Mario Galaxy. If you've never played the game, I apologize for the upcoming spoiler, but, like, Bowser's galaxy experiments blow a hole in the universe, all the star dudes you've befriended over the course of the game sacrifice their lives to repair the hole, and the universe is born anew, the idea being that there is something ever-so-slightly different about the universe this time around.

If you're familiar with the vague, odd backstory to the Mouth albums, there's a pair of alternate universes, in only one of which the band Smash Mouth (noted for a handful of 90s hits such as All-Star, The Way that You Are, and Walkin' on the Sun) exists and one in which they do not exist but vague hints and murmurs of their existence bounce across the cosmos, as though through a hole in the universe. If you're picking up what I'm putting down, please stop, I'm using these breadcrumbs to find my way back home, but you might have an idea of what I'm implying here: the rift and recreation of the universe in Super Mario brought along with it the music of Smash Mouth and many of the other bands into yet another alternate universe, the one with scuttlebug transportation.

This is why the only track in the album that is not from Mario Galaxy 2 is the first track, and it's the bowser boss music from the first game; the experiments Bowser was doing at the center of the universe were already creating instabilities in the world allowing some of the music in. Why, the music may well have been the reason he was so inspired to commit his strange reality-warping experiments in that game (seriously though, c'mon, if an explanation is good enough for Doctor Who it's good enough for me).

So it's just Mario music but with All-Star over top of it?

No, no no no no no. It's much, much more than that. There's a certain mashup ethos behind the Mouth trilogy, such as trying to find incongruous combinations that seem to fit together to create a coherent idea (Tears in Chocolate Rain, Rollercloser), singular focus on words (BEST, Annoyed Grunt), stuff that works surprisingly well as music but is something almost no people would ever consider putting together (Crocodile Chop, Wallspin), running gags, funny lyrical changes that alter song meanings (Tiger, Piss) and the occasional foray into musique concrete almost for its own sake.

Basically, all of those inform the approach I've been making with this music. As part of the running gag, most of the songs involve sources used in several Mouth album songs, such as Wonderwall, One Week, All-Star obviously (there is no One-der Wall-star on this album...though if you like that idea, get hype for what is there), and Bullet With Butterfly Wings.

As a further point, whenever I can, I've tried to pick mashup source choices that reflect level design, game mechanics, and similar aspects to the stage. Because I think that's even a little funnier. Not every time -- some mashups were too amusingly incongruous not to keep as they were.

So what you're saying is, this is as good as any of the Mouth albums?

Easy there, question strawman! I think what I've done is pretty impressive, but one thing that Neil had that I don't is a lot of time. The two first Mouth albums were mostly done over the course of more than a year, and the third only came out a couple months ago. I did almost all of this album, in, christalmighty, it's been one two weeks since I started this thing. I've struggled to find good audio sources and been struggling to find just about any dang source I can manage. In addition, I've wanted to make the backing tracks as primarily based around the original Mario tracks as much as I can, preferring to stay as much away from additional drumbeats, bassline, accompaniment, etc. as I can; generally the only exceptions come when I'm working with songs I can't find pure vocal isolations for or if a song's backing is related to a running gag or similar.

To be clear, it's just under 2 weeks since I first put my first post here. I have only a couple more songs I want to do for this. I have a day job. The amount of time I have spent working on this terrifies even me to consider. Do not ask me about the current cleanliness of my apartment.

Ultimately: I stand by this music, but compared to the Mouths it will probably sound underproduced, because this was a hell of a fly-by-night operation.

Any other things you can tell us about the album?

Yes, the majority of the Voyager probe's golden record's music is on here.

Even Chuck Berry's Johnny B. Goode?

Nope, Chuck Berry was too busy filming the toilet bowl galaxy from the first Mario Galaxy to show up on this album.
