The Beatles Never Broke Up

Get ready for a strange story of a lost Beatles album found on cassette on the other side of a portal to a parallel universe. James Richards brought the cassette back and is making all the songs available. Link -via YesButNoButYes

Fake. Ugh, lets all go "travel to another dimension" (You are now entering... the outer limits!... Please standby.) And mix different songs and say they are the Beatles. wooooooo.

Oh well, interesting none the less I guess

There needs to be a study on why so many amateur sci-fi writers use the name "Jonas" in their stories. Was it all the crap 70s sci-fi shows that also used "Jonas" for aliens/men from another world?

It's well known that remixing and electronic musicians generally put their songs to tape/cassettes. That is the first clue. I doubt the cassette would have even existed then when the Beatles could have done this. This is also another badly engineered hoax, Neatorama. I understand entertainment, but y'all generally put up cool shit in the REAL world. The whole "Alice in Wonderland" thing is meh, but at least it fits with some the things the band did. The remixes are allright, but it'd be better if he just said, "This is a Danger Mouse type thing except with only Beatles stuff."

Yeah, good intentions gone horribly wrong. Sad, so much time on his hands and he just can't let it out as really BAD remixes.

Sounded like the brown acid gone gone even worse.

These mash-ups have nothing that I like about the Beatles's music.

Although I am amused by all the commenters who think they're clever in sussing out the fictional nature of this album's genesis. Good for you! You aren't a total moron!

Anyone read Stephen Baxter's short story, "The Twelfth Album," in which two men discover a copy of the last Beatles album, post-'Let It Be', called 'God' which was recorded in a parallel universe? Great story, kind of a melancholy romance fantasy, and the songs sound much better in the imagination.

Jeez, what a buncha snotty a-holes. The person who made this was just trying have some fun and share the results of their effort and you all use it as an opportunity to show how clever and superior you are. Jerks.

I mounted a camera on my roof by my chimney last Christmas and videotaped all night long. Guess what. No bearded man, no reindeer! It's a total myth!

James Richard Found this? Or is it Richard D JAMES! Aphex Twin?? And the Title is Everyday Chemestry? Kinda Boards of Canada isnt it? This is a warp records fan Stoned Bedroom Transmition of his Beatles Phase and its GOOD! Its has a BOC "Old Tunes" flavor, theres no synths or anything, its all samples and effects. But its nice.

Mehhh...he should have kidnapped Jonas and brought him back to our dimension and sold...sorry rendered him to Gitmo for his secrets. Thus he is unAmerican and a traitor.

Those who thought this music was going to be genuinely newly found Beatles stuff might want to invest a little more time in their critical thinking skills.

Sounds like Aphex Twin is trying to launch the cyberversion of This is Spinal Tap. Kudos to fooling the foolish, James.

i like it. putting this together is a better use of time than being a pretentious asshat in the comment section of a blog.

i also have no doubts a white child star that grew black over time bought the bizarro Beatles catalog and listened to it by himself in his mobile home he named AlwaysLand.

Its a good collection of music/"mashups", enjoyable to listen to, and the story was fun!

I wish more people were as creative with how they get their music out there. The net would be a far more entertaining place.

Can anyone identify any of the songs used? The trumpet in the background on the second song, "Talking to Myself" is driving me a little crazy. I know the riff, but I just can't seem to remember what song it's from!

I really wanted this to be as good or better than the (Bob) Dylan Hears a Who thing from a few years ago. With Dylan Hear a Who you can tell that someone bothered to really re-imagine lost tracks and the difference between different eras, albums, tracks and sides of Dylan's work.

With Everyday Chemistry we just get some lame Wings and solo pockject samples along with someone who doesn't know how to use the ABBEY Road ReFill from Reason 4.0 properly. Sad.

Haha. Meet The Doctor, get a free Beatles album. sounds like a good day to me.

on a more rational note, I kinda like the mash-ups. they don't exactly sound in Beatles style, but not bad nonetheless.

since this music came from one of an infinite number of parallel worlds, this guy managed to snatch a tape of recordings from an earth where the Beatles were crappy musicians, kind of like the Jonas Bros.

I didn't get any enjoyment from "the Story"

I would have checked out the stuff had he skipped the BS and merely said "Hey, check out this mashup tape I made" as it was I just left the site.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
Given a choice between "Here's a mashup album" and "Here's a tape I got from a parallel dimension"...

Gimme the latter any day. Some thought went into it.

Kudos to the writer. As for those concluding it's Richard D... Get a life.

I think this might be a viral site for the show fringe... some of the info in his account seems similar to things that happened in the latter part if the season.

Has anyone written to the e-mail address yet? I wonder why he/she/it has such a thing, to let you know of the next release of Beatles/McCartney/Wings/Lennon/Starr/Harrison mix tapes?

This made me think of the Brian Vaughn comic Ex Machina, where a radio overhears "The Stars are Falling," a song recorded by a parallel world Nirvana where Kurt Cobain didn't die. Makes me want to make my own mashup for that song.

Some of these comments are brilliant. Thanks for pointing out that this is a fake, I really believed it was unreleased Beates from another dimension! Thanks for setting me straight guys.

Its real....I came from another dimension myself. I died in the last one and came here. I hope heaven and hell aren't real...because if they are this is the H place. It would make sense that many tracks On Everyday Chemistry might have recognizable parts of songs that were recorded in the post beatle era in this dimension. The album is very good...if you don't like it ...you just might not be a real beatles fan. I was 16 when I wanna hold your hand was a hit in the US. The concept of infinite parallet dimensions is our only hope of getting out this screwed up one. Dimension travel needs to be explored.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
it is a complete fake. I haven't even listened to it because I know it isn't worth the time. But reading what other people who have listened to it have said i can tell its fake. whoever said that there was to much Ringo and they could tell it was fake is right. Ringo only does one song per album.
Abusive comment hidden. (Show it anyway.)
Get a grip everyone! It was done for fun and it is pretty cool if you really give it a listen. I'm sure a lot of time went into it also. Let's see you do it better. At least its something new and lets hope there is more to come. Buuurahhh!!
