From Getting It: Now one

From Getting It:
Now one of cell-phonedom's most annoying novelty rings has been sampled for an anti-cell phone CD released last week by dance act Solid Gold Chartbusters. "I Wanna 1-2-1 With You" is a steal from the catchphrase of one of the UK's largest mobile phone network providers, and the video features a cell phone user being beaten and thrown into the Thames.
The cool thing about the Chartbusters is that it's another Jimmy Cauty project. As someone who loves the media muckery of groups like Negativland and Chumbawumpa, Jimmy Cauty is one of my patron saints, having been a founder of The KLF. Also known as the JAMMs. Furthermore known as the Justified Ancients of Mu Mu. A.K.A. The Timelords. But I digress...
You can hear the song here.
