Creamguide’s pick of the day

  • Norman Cook – You’ve Come A Long Way, Baby, Wednesday, 21.00, BBC Radio 2

    We used to be mad about Big Beat which we found incredibly exciting, its squelchy beats and frantic loops always likely to get us on the dancefloor, and here we are twenty years later with a documentary about it on the Light Programme. Yes, it is a bit depressing. Fatboy Slim really was a massive pop star in the late nineties, though, with his records soundtracking everything on telly and a huge hit with the nation’s kids, so it’s worth recalling that golden age. And Norman’s going to do that in his own style in this cut-up documentary where his memories are mixed with myriad samples of every genre imaginable.

"Brian's Binatone is great for his cassettes!"
