Girl Talk | 1.18.11

If you’re unfamiliar with the religious experience that is a Girl Talk show, well, there is nothing I can say to prepare you.

 
 
 
 
On Girl Talk’s new full length All Day, you are welcomed with the iconic sounds of Black Sabbath’s “War Pigs” that have been seamlessly combined with Ludacris ft. Mystikal’s “Move Bitch”. Is this musical blasphemy? Of course it is. Does that mean you shouldn’t be at The Pageant on January 18th dancing your ass off? No, and if you’ve ever listened to a Girl Talk album and don’t have tickets, you know you should be on Craigslist right now, frantically searching for a way into the sold out show.
 
If you’re unfamiliar with the religious experience that is a Girl Talk show, well, there is nothing I can say to prepare you. On top of mashups from all of his released albums (find them all for free at http://illegal-art.net/allday/more.html), you will also be treated to the mad genius’s latest tracks, which include samples from songs at the top of the charts alongside snippets of music still circulating the underground. You’ll be left wondering when Greg Gillis finds the time to sleep enough to maintain the energy required for his dance-off with the hundreds who will join him onstage.
 
Critics and fans alike have debated the value of Girl Talk’s creations, but one thing’s certain; when you’re sweating your ass off with a sold out crowd it sure feels good. If you’re one of the lucky folks present on January 18th—almost two years to the date from Girl Talk’s last dance party at the Pageant— you won’t be remotely worried about the musical implications, outside of wondering how Gillis came up with such an incredibly sick mix. | Bruce Matlock
