Introducing Ted Lyons & His Cubs

Piggy-back posting hyped-up and moderately legal* not-yet released stuff like in the last post brings us back to the exhilarating times when we started the blog. So do posting remixes of Empire of the Sun's "We Are The People". We just loved that song, and we loved probably half of the millions of remixes that turned up of it. And since we doubt that Daft Punk needs the 'enormous' pulling power of the Renault 4L (or is it a Volvo Amazon?) that is the Tracasseur music blog, it's always more exciting to write about producers that actually need your attention.

That's why I'm proud to present Tuscon producer Ted Lyons & His Cubs. I don't know much about him other than his name isn't Ted Lyons, and I'm not even sure those cubs are actually his. But somehow his cover of London Beat's 90's hit "Thinking About You" ended up in my rotation, and since sometime around January we at Tracasseur and our friends have been spinning his tunes quite a lot. The reason why I'm saying that is that virtually no one has heard his music. That London Beat has just over a hundred plays in nine months, which by Soundcloud standards makes his music virtually virgin sounds. So, if you don't want to jump on the Daft Punk hype, you've got the chance to be Ted Lyons & His Cubs 10th (yes, *tenth*) listener on
