Man Called Marco 2006

After Carty sent a copy of Ciaron Marlow's own cover version of this song to Marco Pirroni, things started to take a very different turn. Marco started sending Carty ideas for a new approach to this tune. After getting in touch with Ciaron, it was decided they would create a drastically different version of Man Called Marco, featuring brand new guitars from both Marco and Ciaron himself.

In the end, due to Carty's commitments with producing the Mantra II album, Werewolves Of London, Ciaron finished off the production and after they'd both agreed on some small tweaks, the new version was at last complete.

In 2011, five years after this collaboration, Ciaron became Marco's live stand-in during The Wolfmen's live gigs.

Jolly Roger [Captain Dalton's Remix]
DJ Tiësto - Pirates Of The Caribbean [Remix]
Adam & The Ants - Jolly Roger [album version]
Adam & The Ants - Jolly Roger [demo version]
Pirates Of The Caribbean - [movie samples]

This remix was created especially for Seedy's annual 2006 July birthday bash. 2005's theme was Christmas, and 2006's theme was pirates! It seemed obvious to mix Jolly Roger with the remix from the Pirates Of The Caribbean 2 movie theme by Dutch maestro, DJ Tiësto.

With some samples from the first Pirates Of The Caribbean movie added to keep the theme going, it's eight minutes of bass pumping Ants.

On your feet!

3. Muse vs Adam Ant - Muse At The Top [Carty Mix]

Muse At The Top [Carty Mix]
Adam Ant - Room At The Top [album version]
Muse - Supermassive Black Hole
Cameo - Word Up [sample]
Tone-Lōc - Wild Thing

Someone on the Ant Rap forum suggested that the current single from Muse had an intro similar to the guitar riff from Room At The Top. Having been listening to that album for weeks on his mp3 player, Carty begged to differ. To satisfy his decision, he gave Supermassive Black Hole another listen. Carty couldn't have been more wrong. What's more, both songs were in the same key. A mash-up was born.

A riff in the Muse track reminded Carty of a Van Halen riff sampled by Tone-Lōc in his Wild Thing single, so he decided to use it for the mix, along with its drum loop. The Cameo flute sample was the last thing to be added, as Adam's drums intro bore an uncanny resemblance to the red cod-piece wearing Larry Blackmon track. (Larry also produced Brain Candy and Little Devil on Adam's unreleased Persuasion album).

Queen - We Will Rock You
Adam Ant - Red Scab [B-side version]
Blur - Country House
Red Hot Chili Peppers - Dani California
Adam & The Ants - Physical (You're So) [B-side version]
Def Leppard - Let's Get Rocked

Carty said of this mix in 2006:

"I remember the days when I used to make all these mixes for my own personal pleasure, not really bothered whether people liked them or not. Of course, it's great when people say they love a mix. It's also good to know when a mix isn't liked. But lately I have been doing a lot of requested stuff and special projects, so I thought it was about time I went back to my original way and just played around with an idea I had had in my head for a while. But do it for myself this time."

"Even though Red Scab is very much an integral part of this mix, I am not calling it a remix. It's just a musical collage of songs I seem to connect with the drums to Queen's We Will Rock You. I could have gone on for double the length, but decided to quit once those drums began to speed up. It was a sod to match the Sly Fox snare with Chris Hughes' snare."

"It also confirmed how similar I thought the Red Hot Chili Peppers' Dani California is to Blur's Country House. I used the Def Leppard track as I remember the band saying they had based their drums on Queen's. The Cleopatra intro appeared quite late in the production process."

"It was not going to be a great Carty mix. It was never meant to be. But I love it."

Zerøx Machine [Carty Remix]
Client - Zerox Machine [various mixes]
Adam & The Ants - Zerøx [sample]

Carty says:

"This almost didn't end up as a remix of Client's Zerøx Machine. I also had the Ants' original version running in the mix program and was tempted to use my backing track for that. In fact I loved this new backing so much I almost ditched both remixes in favour of my own cover version. Luckily, no vocals were recorded.

However, the trio of ladies that make up Client had done a splendid job of their Youth produced version that I felt more inclined to use it. A promo CD had been sent out to the UK's nightclub DJ's with three new and very different remixes and I felt the song had been lost.

After failing to obtain the acapella from the band I salvaged what vocals I could from the promo remixes and proceeded to produce a new bass line and create a new drum track. The final demo (# 22) which is now the final version here, was sent to Client and to Marco. Client said "fantastic". Marco never replied. (Well it was never his song anyway).

Kings Of Vienna [Carty Mix]
Ultravox - Vienna
Adam And The Ants - Kings Of The Wild Frontier [single version]
Burundi Black - Burundi Black [sample]

An earlier demo of this was played on the 2006 Carty FM test podcast, and this was a mix that has been sitting around for half a year. It was then called Vienna Kings, but Carty changed the title at the last minute. It remained untouched for some time after the podcast until 11th September 2006, when he was looking through some old folders of WIP mixes. (There are way too many unfinished gems waiting to be completed).

Some reverb and volume adjustments were made to Adam's vocals and an extra sample from the Burundi Black track was added at the end. It took less than an hour to finish this mix off. And they go together so well.

There's also a video available HERE.

Adam Ant - Rough Stuff [album version]
Adam Ant - Room At The Top [album version]
Adam Ant - If You Keep On [album version]
Adam Ant - Bright Lights Black Leather [album version]
Adam Ant - Young Dumb And Full Of It [album version]

There's not really much to say about this as it is exactly what it says. A megamix of every track on Adam's Manners & Physique album from 1990. And compared to the other Ant full album megamixes Carty hasproduced, this is the by far the best mixed one
