Fake Justice - Beginning Of The End
It was literally just yesterday that ITM doled out a sobering wake-up call to unlucky Daft Punk fans who'd been duped by the appearance of an allegedly new tune from the French duo's Tron Legacy score. Seemingly in need of a fresh hoax, internet pranksters have sent out another forgery, this one under the guise of that other famous French duo Justice.I also received the fake Justice track in the mail, and I have to admit it, that though it seemed sketchy, the email address appears to actually be from Ed Banger's domain. I'm not surprised a lot of people posted it.
Appearing on blogs and websites last night, the supposed new track The Beginning Of The End spread like wildfire, with both writers and listeners falling for the ruse.
Since then both Justice's UK press office and their local label, Warner, have confirmed that the track is indeed a fake, something that diehard Justice followers would probably have guessed from a quick listen to the tune. Even after the surely endless amount of blow and groupies that Justice ploughed through on the back of Cross, it's difficult to believe they could return to the spotlight with something so limp and uninteresting as the track in question.
Have a listen in the clip below and hear the forgery for yourself, meanwhile we'll be locked in our room cradling our Waters Of Nazareth 12" and waiting for the Frenchies to return for real. [in the mix]
