Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.23)

Ok, so volume 23 might be the most random mix so far! Starting with more than 8 minutes of droning guitar buzz and sea sounds, there’s sixties stomp with MC5 and The Stooges, rocking sleaze with Peaches and Turbonegro, a short dip into 80s pop (Dept.S, one of the best one hit wonders ever!), a […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.22)

Volume 22. Heading towards half way! We kick off with the haunting, unsettling, almost nautical soundscapes of The Haxan Cloak with its creaking and rattling, disembodied voices and sounds of toil here and there. After the almost Flaming Lipsian vocals of David Lynch we pick up the tempo with a bit of Melt Yourself Down. […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.21)

Slight change from the usual random artist selection method and decided to restrict myself to just female vocalists for volume 21.  No particular reason! As always have a listen below. 1. Björk – All Is Full of Love (Stigmata remix) 2. Goldfrapp – Lovely Head 3. Howling Bells – Setting Sun 4. Made Out of […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.20)

Volume 20, a decent flow to this one as it speeds up, slows down and changes tack. A couple of things; I’d totally forgotten about the Broken Twin album until I revisited this mix. I think I pushed it a bit with Pissed Jeans and Melvins, of the latter she said it had made her […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.19)

Volume 19 starts to show how much the frequency of these mixes really ramped up in later years, the first two tracks show we are in 2014, 19 discs in six years meaning the last 31 were done in just three years! Anyway, highlights this time include the War on Drugs track from Lost in […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.18)

The mixes come of age! Volume 18 begins with a couple of dog & pony shows, very different songs despite the same name, a lot of rude words in the Consolidated one though, so, you know, parental advisory etc.  Special mentions go to Angkorwat and Hong Kong in the 60s, two tracks off the excellent […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.17)

Volume 17 begins woozily with the quite trippy Grails track before booting you up the backside with the surf guitar of Man or Astro-man? and the kick arse FOTL track (“he was good with his hands!”). It also has a distinct electronic feel with great tracks from Pye Corner Audio, BoC, 65dos, Solar Bears and […]
