SOUNDBREAK.COM PARTNERS WITH SCOTT THOMPSON TO CREATE EMINEM SONG PARODY

Bookmark and Share
Los Angeles, CA, October 13--Kids in the Hall member Scott Thompson's Eminem (a.k.a. Marshall Mathers) song parody "Dear Marshall," to be performed TODAY on NBC-TV's Late Night with Conan O'Brien, traces its roots and world premiere performance to upstart Sunset Strip Internet music and entertainment network Soundbreak.com.

The tune, an irreverent take on the hit rapper's song "Stan," was co-produced and co-written by Soundbreak DJ and engineer James O'Leary. The other producer was Soundbreak's chief audio engineer Scott Burton.

Thompson, one of the original members of Canadian comedy troupe Kids in the Hall, originally performed the song September 27 on Soundbreak's "Music of My Life" show with DJ Christian Hand. The performance brought record numbers of people to Soundbreak's chat room to debate the tune's send-up of Eminem.

Soundbreak's Robin Bennett, a writing partner of Thompson's, explains, "I thought wow, wouldn't Scott have a great time on our show. Originally we were just going to do an interview, but then I found out he used to be in a punk band back in Canada and he had never led with that or used it in his stand-up routine. So the idea just took off from there."

"We were waiting for something as outrageous as this for our first download. Come and get it," says Soundbreak's Executive VP of Programming and Content Mark Goodman. In a first for the 24/7 music and video outlet, Soundbreak has posted the original performance of the song as a FREE MP3 file on its web site, www.soundbreak.com.
