I usually do not report about music, but the new first single from the new album of Fatboy Slim is maybe unwillingly promoting (eh org).
The title of the new track is "Slash Dot Dash". In the song the text also goes "...Slash Dot Com...". Anyway pretty funny I think, especially because Fatboy Slim only has an Atari for sampling and does not use email, see quote below.

Norman Cook (aka Fatboy Slim) about the song:
Slash Dot Dash is a mix of old and new Fatboy. There is repetition but this time the track actually has live guitars! The plan was to throw in a bit of Buzzcocks and The White Stripes. The track is just a comment on this new language people seem to have - although I don’t even own a computer. Well, I do, the Atari in my studio, but no one ever sent me an email on that!”
More details Norman Cook Online.

You can listen legally to the new Fatboy track by registering at After login it will stream the song. The new Album Palookaville will go on sale on October 4th. The Slash Dot Dash Single goes on sale on September 13th.
