SPECIAL EVENT BATTLE OF THE
BOOTLEGS The Arches, Glasgow, Fri 5 Apr.
Bootlegs are impossible to avoid these days, with increasingly bizarre combinations of tracks appearing on a daily basis. Osymyso — aka Mark Nicholls - takes a different tack, however, raising the art of copyright infringement to a higher level with tracks such as ‘Pat ‘n’ Peg’, satirically sampling the Eastenders matriarchs, or video pieces taking the mickey out of Stephen Byers.
‘l’ve always been into the idea of referencing cultural things and

changing them,’ Nicholls says. ‘It dates back to when i started DJing, which was about eight years ago. It was just a part of what I did: instead of going out with a bunch of other people’s records, I would change them around a bit, so i always had something of my own to DJ with. It grew out of that and I’ve honed the style over the years. I think what’s captured people is the instant recognition of something, added to the novelty of it being different -
it’s a very basic appeal.’
Manipulating the sonic detritus of pop culture is, of course, hardly a recent phenomenon, with the likes of plunderphonic artist John Oswald cutting-up William Burroughs talking about cut-up techniques in the late 705, or Negativland satirising everything from U2 to fundamentalist preachers. ‘lt’s nothing new,’ agrees Nicholls. ‘There’s always been ways of re-interpreting popular music, dating back to music hall. I think I lean more towards people like Negativland, taking a theme and riding with it, whereas the bootleg thing is just a bit of fun. Without meaning to sound arsey, I take myself seriously, I take my art seriously. It’s not just a throwaway thing, but on the other hand I don’t want to become pretentious and I want my work to be accessible to people who are not necessarily clued-up on what it’s all about.’
At the Arches’ Battle of the Bootlegs event, Nicholls is set to bridge the gap between cut-ups and bootlegs. ‘lt’s a DJ set, but a pre-prepared one,’ he says, ‘So it’ll be musical, but I’ll be doing a lot of cut-ups for it: fucking the tracks up way beyond what you could do live as a DJ.’ (Jack Mottram)
