Nom de bootleg
of Erol Alkan
, a DJ at London club Trash
. Using this name, Alkan created many of the most popular bootleg tracks, including:
Alkan was also the man behind the live "bootleg" reworking of Kylie Minogue's "Can't Get You Out of My Head" and New Order's "Blue Monday,"1 which Minogue performed at the 2002 Brit Awards. Sadly, Alkan retired Kurtis Rush in February 2002, stating that bootlegging had
"gone too far, what had started off as fun is almost turning into an industry and a 'marketing' tool, and I don't want anything to do with it."2
1This version was later released by Kylie as "Can't Get Blue Monday Out of My Head."
