Baseheads! A friend has been burning discs of the BBC’s breezeblock radio show; the one I’ve been loving is a set by Cut La Roc. One of the songs samples someone saying “Baseheads!” Mr. La Roc (or possibly the origial sampler) has ramped up the speed, and at one point the sample is looped: “Baseheads! Baseheads! Baseheads! Baseheads!” The effect is of great basehead-related excitement. Now I’m thinking Baseheads! The Musical might not be a bad idea. “A thrilling ride … a celebration of baseheads’ indefatigable joie de vivre … an uplifting must-see!” is what the critics would inevitably say.
