King of Mash-up remixes Girl Talk has announced Australian Tour sideshows this January while he is out here on the Big Day Out 2012 line-up. Latest album All Day, his fifth album, released in November last year as a free download, consists of 372 overlapping samples of other artists’ songs and has been described as “the entire mega-mash-up is stupendously danceable.”
From Pittsburgh USA, Gregg Gillis – AKA everyone’s favourite A.D.D-top-of-the-pop’s-enthusiast Girl Talk, has earned the rep as the ultimate party act. Infamous for his faster-than-a-speeding-bullet sampling, Girl Talk tries to cram as much get-low booty grooves and sugar-sweet pop into every moment as is super humanly possible.
The Girl Talk live show is an off-with-your-top affair. Forget noodling laptop artists and get ready to slop bodily fluids and stand on stage like a mad person when Mr Gillis hits “power” on his PC.
After playing 150 shows in one year, Girl Talk earned himself the reputation as the ultimate party starter.
