Songs: Boom Shake The Roomnotes / gigs / releases
(original by DJ Jazzy Jeff & The Fresh Prince)
A hundred million years ago, around 1994, dancey remixes of indie bands seemed to be all the rage, and so I decided it would be HILARIOUS to do an indie band version of a dancey song. I went to my local record shop and bought a CASSINGLE of "Boom Shake The Room" and eventually worked out that you could play the entire song using just two chords.
It thus entered the repertoire of the band Voon and has remained in my set (and occasionally The Validators) ever since. I keep on doing it because it keeps on being ACE, and I love the fact that pretty much ALL audiences surprise themselves by knowing most of the words!
This version was hidden at the end of Shed Anthems and features The Validators on crowd vocals.
