Music Monday: Pinball Wizardry by DJ Cutman

One thing y'all may not know about me is that I'm a pretty big pinball fan. So much so that probably my most played games on my PS3 is Zen Studios' Zen Pinball 2 and FarSight Studios' Pinball Arcade (can't wait for Twilight Zone on the latter of those! Just need to add The Addams Family and I will be set.). It was one of those things I grew up with and something I very much miss with the mostly death of the arcades. The fact that there is only one pinball manufacturer left in the industry, Stern Pinball,  is still something very sad to me, though it's better than none I guess. So this week's musical entry blends two things I enjoy: pinball and DJ Cutman. Recently, Cutman did a pinball charity event up in NYC in which he did an entire mix of pinball music. You rarely hear mixes from pinball tracks, so this is something really rare and pretty darn awesome as such. Included in the mix are tracks from The Machine: Bride of Pinbot, Funhouse, Fish Tales, The Addams Family (Including my favorite song in pinball history The Mamushka), and Elvira and the Party Monsters, among so many others. Of course, Sonic Spinball is in there too because slight trolling. The track is also released on DJ Cutman's awesome GameChops digital label, which is also worth checking out.

  1. I too, share you lamenting for the death of arcades. I unfortunately got swept up so much in the brawler games of the 80s, and fighting games of the 90′s, that I only started to get into pinball as I grew a bit older (and was tall enough to actually *see* the game haha), I can see where you’re coming from.

    My solution? Working on designing a home arcade setup using my old 32″ flat CRT and a MAME/emulator filled computer, complete with some high end joysticks. One day, my friends kids will look upon this homage to my youth, and realize, that despite how cool the internet is… they’re definitely missing out on something.

    Oh, and I had Sonic Spinball back then too. Was a bit wonky, but hey… I liked it. =P
