The Tape-Beatles - Sing Sing Sing (Sing Sing)

One of the things I've always loved about The Tape-Beatles is that while they were pioneers of cut-ups and plunderphonics, they were also fond of very bad jokes. Sing Sing Sing (Sing Sing) is one of those - a pun that takes the song made famous by Benny Goodman and adding news reports on crimes that might have ended up landing someone in Sing Sing prison. You get the drum-heavy swing music and the pulpish commentary and the whole thing ends up being very '30s gangster. It's from the plagiartastic 1989 release A Subtle Buoyancy Of Pulse.
