Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.15)

Volume 15 contains a load more goodies including a track that would likely be in my top 5 tunes of all time (clue: the initials of the band are BT). Other highlights are the track from the Black Hawk Down soundtrack which I can’t remember for the life of me how I stumbled across, a […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.14)

Volume 14 kicks off with the short but unsettling track by The Haxan Cloak, the sub bass of which got all the glasses in my kitchen cabinet rattling and I didn’t even have it that loud! We then really get the party started with PSB’s never bettered track (imo) Signal 30, some comeback mbv and […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.13)

Thirteen may be unlucky for some but not in terms of this set of mixes, ‘cos volume 13 is another doozy! The atmospheric two handed opener off Steve Mason’s “Monkey Minds in the Devil’s Time” album leads to the utterly gorgeous John Grant tune. I’d just discovered his “Queen of Denmark” album at this time […]

If somebody had described the style of 16 Horsepower to me before I heard them I would have run a mile from it, banjos, christian themes, er no thanks, but they are brilliant! They sit near the middle of vol.12 alongside other notables on this episode such as, another appearance by National Treasures™ Half Man Half […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.11)

Volume 11 kicks off rather viscerally with Ben Frost’s Killshot, shake up the senses a bit before the gothic pop of Cold Cave comes crashing in! Other notables for me this time are O. Children, what happened to them? One good album in 2012 then nothing. That Clutch track is a doozy and who remembers […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.10)

The mixes reach double figures! Notables this time include the second appearance by HMHB (featuring one of my favourite HMHB lines “There’s a man with a mullet going mad with a mallet in Millets”!)  and the second appearance in as many CDs by Roots Manuva, some nostalgic 80s post punk with Red Lorry Yellow Lorry, […]

Ten Years of Compilation CDs (Disc No.9)

Starting to get into my stride with these mixes now. This was probably the first of them that I was really pleased with, the flow of the tracks works really well (even though I say so myself!), even more so now I’ve mixed them in GarageBand. A great cover of Led Zeppelin’s Immigrant Song by […]
