Girl Talk at Lollapalooza

Posted by admin On August - 4 - 2008

~Z.T.~ Chicago, IL Everyone’s talkin’ about Girl Talk. He’s no secret anymore. The Citi stage was crowded for Saul Williams, but just an hour later, it was filled to an uncomfortable degree for Girl Talk. After a Girl Talk-esque intro* he came out, saying “I attended Lollapalooza in 1994 in Pittsburgh. I been up all night, but I’m ready to go crazy right now.” Let’s do it Gregg.If this guy is blowing up as big as I think he is, he’s going to need to get a better set than a table and laptop.

Having spent the last month at an uncomfortable level of obsession after Feed The Animals dropped I was intrigued to see how much of his sampling would be identical to his albums and how much would be mash-ups he’d worked on since then. It’s about half and half. He started with the “International Player’s Anthem (I Choose You)”-“Gimme Some Lovin'” intro straight off Feed The Animals, but switched it up from the album less than a minute in.
Sorry Zack, but that’s a better toy than anything Wayne Coyne has. -A.S.

He kept certain go-to mash-ups like “The Weight-It’s Goin’ Down,” “All That She Wants-My Drink n My 2 Step” and added new sexy flavors like “Paper Planes.”

One super mash-up had me thinking it’s about time I start futzing with Garage Band again. An “Oh no he didn’t” No Diggity-Flashing Lights-15 Steps-Juicy-Tiny Dancer menage.We have to get Zack on stage with Girl Talk one of these days. Have you ever seen him dance?

Gregg had to kick all the dancers off the stage before it broke, announcing “The stage was fu*king bending, you guys.” Speaking of breaking, he’s finally broken out big time.

*After a recording plays intertwined clips of media talking about him, he introduces himself as Gregg Gillis and his “band” as Girl Talk. What band? It’s just Gregg with a laptop that has G.T. spelled out in pink lettering.
