Title: club de mix revue
Post by: a.heathen on Sat, Mar 29, 2014, 18:55 PM
 I gave my AETC HUBMIX a listen while walking through a cemetery and along a river.

1) uplifting banjo tune wherein laser beams are mixed up with mules. That crosses many circles of my Venn diagram. Nice start.

2) there's going to be a party when the wolf comes home. Says the band who may have influenced Coldplay tribute act the Mumfords of Doom. Imagine a sort of alt.folk band of the 90s.

3) I feel I should be able to name these Wannadies / Friends Theme sorts. I may even have this song."This is a song" they correctly sing. Maybe these had a bigger hit I know?

4) you know how Van Morrison pretends to be American? This might be him doing that, but being funny, audience cheers & whoops.

I will have to reevaluate on listen #2

5) Bluesy hippity hop sounding thang. Namechecking the good shizzle. Mellow. PM Don Henley.

6) Plant & Krauss. Lovely. Apparently 2nd album sessions did not work. Darn.

Oh well, at least we have Lindi Ortega covering Desperado.

7) "Almost nothing is what I can tell you about this song. Nice moping. Probably one of those ones everyone likes and I should know. Moving pictures, silent films.

8) Ah. More familiar territory. I Couldn't Bear To Be Special, by Prefab Sprout. Perfect follow on from previous track.

9) it's a song about twin towers.

Nice trippy synth almost like Tony Mansfield's mote reflective moments. I could definitely see this as an update of Sad Films. I will be wanting to.hear more by this chap.

10) pia pia piano. Boys & girls in cars. I have heard of this. Dunno who it is. Another likable moping tune.

ooh more plane crash imagery.

11) Sax.

And the first track that doesn't really saxisfy me.

12) Portishead on the other hand.

I now want to listen to the whole of Dummy and maybe an Airbus Reconstruction could have helped those plane crash songs.

13) wibbly wobbly electro folk instrumental.

14) World musack. Tabla, that throat singy sounding synth. Jazzy beats. Niiiice. Something Transglobal.

I have just passed those two blokes that were interviewed on the news this.morning on the occasion of them getting married. Nice.

This is wibbling on a bit now.

Oh, it's over.

Good work my mixer. I could listen to this again..I could even already own more than I suspect. If not, the mp3 shops of certain bands could be busy.

Working away for a few days this week I was able to give my mix a few listens. It's an electronica-laden synth spectacular cd courtesy, I believe, of Baldpar. Call me Agent Cooper but I think the timing of its arrival, the content of the cd and the Dunfermline postcard that came with it point in his direction.

Track 1 – OK? Ready? Let’s Do It, announces Phil Oakey as Being Boiled by the Human League gets us underway. A favourite of mine from my early teens, this, the b-side Circus of Death and the Normal’s Warm Leatherette/TVOD were rarely off the turntable and a staple of every mix tape. A great start.
Track 2 – A meandering bass line runs throughout this one before a soft female voice gives us a chorus which seems inspired by the Tom Tom Club. Pleasant enough, but 3 of the almost 5 minutes would have been enough.
Track 3 – I recognise this as Miaoux Miaoux, don’t know the song but I’m struck how much it sounds like the Lightning Seeds circa the Sense album. I really like this, which is a double whammy as I’ll check out more MM and re-visit Sense, which I loved but haven’t played for years
Track 4 – One of only 2 Chvrches songs in my collection, I think this was a freebie on itunes one day. I really liked The Mother We Share but anything else from them, including this, has left me underwhelmed. It’s not bad, just ok
Track 5 – More synth to get us started on this one which soar over the top of a Claire Groganesque female vocal, although heaven forfend that Claire would use the ‘c’ word. I’ve surprised myself by liking this as it’s not something that I’d seek out, which is the great thing about a beef/hub mix. Will be interested to find out who this is.
Track 6 – Our very own Jon Hopkins with Open Eye Signal from the excellent Immunity album.
Track 7 – Back to my teenage years with Donna Summer’s I Feel Love. Given that I’d discovered The Jam, The Clash, The Pistols and The Stranglers, along with any number of lesser quality ‘punk’ bands, this passed me by when my brother had it on a constant play. Over the years I came to really like it, but 9 minutes with added Rivers of Slime’esque knob twiddling is a bit too much for me, moved onto track 8 after about 4 minutes.
Track 8 – I was really enjoying this as an instrumental, then the vocal kicked in and spoiled it. The throaty male vocal and orgasmic grunts turn me right off and probably would have got it banned by Radio 1 in the 70’s. If there’s a fully instrumental version of this kicking about I’m in, but the singer should have a wank in his own time, not mine.
Track 9 – More synths, if Miaoux Miaoux hadn’t already been on earlier I’d have thought it was them. Not the best on the mix but, not unpleasant. Can’t really think of much more to say about it. It is what it is.
Track 10 – I’ve reached synthpop saturation point now and would love to hear a guitar, but, it’s more synthpop and to my untrained ears, this sounds like a slightly quicker version of the one that went before.
Track 11 – This is more like it, a Marine Girls feel to this one, a gentle swoony love song, a summery feel good kind of song. No idea who it is but I like it, I’m back onboard.

Track 12 – Back to a synth drum beat after the brief respite. An instrumental number which is not offensive to the ear but isn’t in the league of track 8, (without the ononism).
Track 13 – This is great, despite having absolutely none of their stuff I know it’s Public Service Broadcasting and it reminds me that I need to own their album. By the time the song is over it’s been ordered. Other than the timeless Being Boiled this is the best track on the mix, love it.

Overall it’s been really enjoyable to listen to a genre that I’m rarely exposed to. Whilst I’d probably prefer to hear them in smaller chunks, I liked most of the tracks, particularly Miauox Miauox and PSB, albums by both have now been bought since receiving this mix. I will leave most of them on my ipod and if you have an instrumental version of track 8 then I’m all ears. Chees Baldpar (?), much appreciated.

Guilty as charged  :) I'll do a full reveal tomorrow. At work just now and then off out to see Kid Canaveral in Edinburgh tonight. Glad you enjoyed (?) most of it. Outside of Fence related music I have always been a big fan of electronic / synthy stuff. My favourite band, New Order, are responsible for this.

The mix took about three listens before it kicked in and  I began to appreciate all the nuances.

1)  The mix starts with what  can only be described as 'music hall madness'!

2)  Next we have a rollercoaster ride of 60's pop at it's most dramatic. I can see where Meat Loaf got his chops from. Classic kitsch.

3)  A breathy seductive chantress who has me weak at the knees. Wonderful.

4)  60's retro style slightly psychedelic pop, probably done by a modern band. More please.

5)  Some nice spaced out trance/dub reggae.

6) This could be off a 60's soundtrack. Again I suspect a more modern band.

7)  More 60's retro style pop. Nice 'n' cool. First part of the mix over.

8)  Now a change of feel with some nicely 'dated' folky acoustic guitar.

9)  Leading into Ivor Cutler. Always a pleasure.

10) Gentle piano instrumental.

11)  Keeping the tranquil mood with an orchestral piece, and the end of this part of the mix.

12)  That's the 'chill' over. Now we have a nice 'n' cheesy version of 'Daydream Believer'.

13)  Country/pop sung the way I would imagine Jerry Lee Lewis doing it.

14)  A 'rude' tongue in cheek bit of folky humour.

15)  Ah, a song I know. Lindisfarne - 'Fog On The Tyne'.

16)  Some Scottish traditional Scottish folk music, fiddles and all.

17)  WHO IS THIS? I think I've heard that voice. Great 'loopy' guitar, I love it.

18)  Retro poppy/rootsy sound. Could it be Supergrass?

19)  Classic Northern Soul single. 'Seven days Is Too Long' - Chuck Woods.

20)  That breathy seductive chantress again. She could read the phone book and sound sexy!

21)  Cool jazz instrumental.

22)  Lovely version of 'Blues Run The Game'.

23)  Funny interlude.

24)  Classic Dean Martin.

25)  Another slice of pop drama (80's style) to close the mix.

No home should be without this mix. It's everything a good mix should be. As soon as I get the track listing I'll start checking out some of the artists. So a big shout out to Mixmaster Supreme Bootsfordancing!

The only downside was that I had to purchase a French lexicon to fully appreciate the mix. A minor quibble though cause I have now expanded my vocabulary. 'Mercy buckets' Bootsfordancing.  ;D

3) yikes not a clue.. african acoustic...really really nice - i honestly listen to so little like this...great change

7) KC  :)
8) Tales Of the Road.... ? reminds me of TV smiths explorers (bit more polished maybe)
9) great mix into a classical piece not "ride of the valkyries" so not a clue, - lovely though
10) "this is how it feels to be lonely..." not a clue sounds like an andrew lloyd webber meets scott walker over the top....
11) "Don't fence me in..." classic cowboy song, love this - used to sing my girls to sleep with this..... nice version - not gene autry that's fer sure:O
12) yeah another one i know... Frightened R...

Yep, it's me, Congo Bongo. Glad you got some joy from the mix and as I said yours was top notch. Will send you a PM with more details.

Here's ma mix revue...

1. I have no idea what this is but I still laugh every time I listen to it… that's OK, it's a funny piece about a film script for a sort of animal 'Restless Natives' featuring fluffy and quack quack the man size koala bear and emperor penguin. I can't say much more except that I need to know who this is so that I can hear more. A pole position start for sure.

2. Starts off with a fairground music type texture that is then joined with a sort of percussion track built from manipulated sounds and then some electronic effects. Fairground motif re-enters. I'm open to music like this so found it interesting in a likeable way but have absolutely no idea who it is. Definitely curious to find out who it is. More Wired magazine than Smash Hits that's for sure!

3. Funky piano riff which is joined by drums and bass, quite a funky feel overall and a nice uptempo speed. Lyrics a bit hard to make out - 'turtles have short legs not for walking' ?!? Possibly a foreign band from the accent - I'd guess 60s or 70s rather than the last 20 years - never thought I'd hear myself use that phrase. Liked it, very catchy.

4. Quite dreamy and mellow. For some reason reminds me of Albatross in it's general feel - that's not a bad thing! Sounds like very early ambient music in that it has the feel but is using a real piano with, what sounds like, an early synthesiser to get wave type swooshes. Real percussion is used too. Modern ambient seems to be all synthesised sounds and drum boxes. This is really nice.

5. Wow! After that last track, turns out his track has the bass part from Albatross! Sounds like some nice Fender Rhodes piano. Vocal enters after about 1:10, subdued style… very laid back. Like it, but no idea who it is.

6. Change of pace here. Nice acoustic guitar opening, vocals begin quite quickly. Almost thought Dylan from the first couple of words, but then thought the accent was too Irish for Dylan… oh, and the singer has more than three notes in his range! The voice is very familiar but I can't put a name to it. Maybe even a slight touch of Paul Buchanan but it's definitely not him, too folky. Hmmmm… I know who this, but don't know the song, and can't put a name to the singer. Nice song, nice performance.

7.  Another acoustic number. Sounds like a young Neil Young… but pretty sure it's not him. A definite Americana feel to this one with a touch of a shuffle. A fairly short number, nice enough, although a little plain.

8. No idea, sounds like it's been recorded in a church although may just be because they have a church organ type sound. Mixed with some very unique vocal stylings. Nice guitar lines too, definitely sounds like Fender Jaguar/Jazzmaster type tones. Sounds a bit like Slowdive at times but then builds to Coldplay type crescendos although it's not Coldplay and definitely not as bland as Coldplay. Have no idea who is. Damn, I should start listening to Mixing It again, if it's still on that is.

9. Opens with a synthesiser bass line and then the vocals enter. Female vocalist sounds a bit like Dolores O'Riordan (sp?) from The Cranberries. Some additional keyboard embellishments in between the vocals. Really have no idea - something about a sparrow? Wasn't a fan of The Cranberries and find this vocal delivery grates a bit. I could take it for a song or two but don't think I could do a whole album.

10. Bit of a sound collage. Pulsing synth tone keeps time and is joined by a repeating pattern picked on electric guitar with a clean tone and a female vocal that comes in and out throughout. Can't guess who it is.

11. Sped up vocals, quite funky even though it sounds like munchkins on acid! Initially thought it might be the same artist as Track 1 but don't think so now. Really liked this, quite short, almost frantic, really catchy.

12. Definitely KC singing and it's definitely a Withered Hand song cos I recognise a couple of the lines. Also the guitar style is definitely WH and not KC - KC doesn't tend to strum chords in this way. Ashamed to admit that I've only seen WH live (Cambo SITKOF book launch, and City Arts Centre on New Years Day) and haven't gotten around to buying his albums yet. Must remedy that. Great performance here.

13. Ae Fond Kiss - no idea who it is. Adrian Crowley? It's the only thing that springs to mind. I'm not a huge fan of Burns set to music, prefer to read from the page or hear a recital. Singer's been on the downers I think. It's nice enough but after some of the other tracks it doesn't really make much of an impact.

14. A wee bit of banjo - very nice. No idea but I like it. 'Play the Old Banjo' would be my guess at a title. Really nice performance. Sounds like new roots as opposed to old classics because it's a nice clean recording.

15. More banjo and that definite modern bluegrass feel. A definite 'O Brother Where Art Thou' feel or probably more like the documentary that followed it, 'Down From The Mountain'. Sounds like the kind of song that would have been a Ralph Stanley number except that this is a female vocalist. Great track. Nice to hear bluegrass where it's not at 160 beats per minute - good lyrics, great performances. Liked this a lot. Sounds a bit too rootsy for Alison Krauss - maybe not?

16. Scots traditional. 'Why am I so poor and skint all the time' - don't know - Dick Gaughan? Clutching at straws.

17. YESSSS! This is definitely the same guys as Track 1! Snish snish snish snish shish. I have no idea but this is killing me. It sounds like Absolutely but I know it's not.

18. Quite a big production. Bit of a retro sound with a baritone guitar riff underneath. A bit Pink Floyd in places, slight War of the Worlds influence and then it's all joined by mellotron (I think) and a Boss CE-2 chorus pedal turned to frantic. OK but doesn't grab me.

19. Voice and piano, recorded in a large echoing space - appears to be a song of thanks. Track had a glitch towards the end but got 2 minutes of it. Brian Wilson? Not sure.

20 - 26. Spacer tracks.

27. Secret final track? Took a minute. Sounds familiar… I've definitely heard this before… c'mon… GOT IT! 1978, Ally's Army. Not the original but a slowed down atmospheric cover. The first World Cup I really remember… well, I remember the stationery and football stickers. I was 7 years old and at Leuchars Primary School. Realised a couple of years ago that the mascot for that tournament wasn't Sport Billy as I'd always thought but was in fact called Gaucho. Anyway, I only know it's Northern Alliance because it was mentioned on a recent Hub thread. Will now be checking up on Northern Alliance.


Big thanks to the mixer, whoever you are Edinburgh person (post mark). Nothing here that I didn't like, a couple that were OK but wouldn't pursue. Overall I'd say a 80% hit rate. Need to know who 1 and 17 are, definitely need more by them. Also particularly liked 3 - 5, 8 & 11. Liked the other stuff too but just picking out highlights here.

I thought I had wide ranging tastes (although I played it a bit safe on my mix) but most of this was new to me. Great, just what I need, another list of CDs to buy. It's not even the money these days cos if you look around you can pick things up for reasonable prices, it's the time to listen to them. Give me more time!!!!

Do we publish playlists at some point to out people out of their misery?

18. Quite a big production. Bit of a retro sound with a baritone guitar riff underneath. A bit Pink Floyd in places, slight War of the Worlds influence and then it's all joined by mellotron (I think) and a Boss CE-2 chorus pedal turned to frantic. OK but doesn't grab me.

19. Voice and piano, recorded in a large echoing space - appears to be a song of thanks. Track had a glitch towards the end but got 2 minutes of it. Brian Wilson? Not sure.

20 - 26. Spacer tracks.

27. Secret final track? Took a minute. Sounds familiar… I've definitely heard this before… c'mon… GOT IT! 1978, Ally's Army. Not the original but a slowed down atmospheric cover. The first World Cup I really remember… well, I remember the stationery and football stickers. I was 7 years old and at Leuchars Primary School. Realised a couple of years ago that the mascot for that tournament wasn't Sport Billy as I'd always thought but was in fact called Gaucho. Anyway, I only know it's Northern Alliance because it was mentioned on a recent Hub thread. Will now be checking up on Northern Alliance.


Big thanks to the mixer, whoever you are Edinburgh person (post mark). Nothing here that I didn't like, a couple that were OK but wouldn't pursue. Overall I'd say a 80% hit rate. Need to know who 1 and 17 are, definitely need more by them. Also particularly liked 3 - 5, 8 & 11. Liked the other stuff too but just picking out highlights here.

I thought I had wide ranging tastes (although I played it a bit safe on my mix) but most of this was new to me. Great, just what I need, another list of CDs to buy. It's not even the money these days cos if you look around you can pick things up for reasonable prices, it's the time to listen to them. Give me more time!!!!

Do we publish playlists at some point to out people out of their misery?




yo demon, glad you enjoyed most of the music. here is the reveal:


1.   this, as you quite rightly say, is fucking hilarious. the wonderful
‘fluffy and quack quack’ sketch from blab, who are played on old jock
radio all the time. one guy from falkirk and the other from haddington,
I believe. i know next to nothing about them apart from that.

2.   this is calamateur with ‘akatombo (the red butterfly)’. interesting
singer songwriter from up north somewhere. tons of albums available
so do check him out.

3.   funky piano riff indeed. ‘turtles have short legs’ by can. total genius.

4.   and this ‘meer’ from can’s german contemporaries faust. two
wonderul bands who you should be buying more from.

5.   the first fence track on this compilation is taken from trilemma’s
caveat emptor (pfb11) called ‘how the west was run’. i love this. know
next to fuck all about the band and never heard from them in the fence
world since.

6.   dylan? irish? nah it’s the incredible ‘she is so beautiful’ by the waterboys.
mike scott is a scot, you know. he only sounds irish. ;)

7.   and this ‘beautiful car’ by m ward. nothing ground breaking, but it’s
a lovely song. i think he’s now in a band with that actress zoey dechanel (sic).

8.   this is dgs’s and bhoywonder’s favourite band – even more so than
mogwai and the beatles. ‘such a sad puppy dog’ by manchester hipsters
wu lyf. i think they’ve now broken up but i did enjoy the album they brought
out. no matter what the naysayers, er, say.

9.   i see where you are coming from with the voice on this one, but i do
like her. my mrs totally hates this song!!! it is ‘sparrow’ by woodpecker
wooliams who, I believe, has now ditched that moniker and is now trading
under a different name.

10.   this is the second fence track to appear, and it is the criminally underlooked
ac hum with ‘pulse. This is little pebble and iona marshall combining to pull off a
wonderful mix of vocal and electronic tomfoolery.

11.   blame ramino for this effort as it was him who turned me on to r stevie moore.
i must admit to not enjoying a whole swathe of his back catalogue but this is funk
groove central. the song is ‘horizontal hideaway’.

12.   yup, withered hand’s ‘no cigarettes’ sung by kc. Nuff said really.

13.   ae fond kiss by now wakes the sea. i believe nwts is a one-man operation and,
again, i’m not convinced with everything I’ve heard by him, but this burns tribute
album he did is wonderful.

14.   new roots, yes. this is the incredible viking moses with ‘play the old banjo’
from the sampler album, a short history. if you haven’t caught vm live yet then do
all in your power to change that – he is extraordinary live.

15.   the o brother reference is indeed apt with this one. surprised you don’t
know gillian welch, mind. This is ‘the devil got hold of me’ from her second album
hell among the yearlings. again, an incredible live performer. everyone should
own at least one gillian welch album.

16.   this is ‘the fifer song’ by our very own pip dylan. not available on any of
his albums this one, and i hear there is a dirty, ten minute version, which i’m
still to be treated to.

17.   so glad you are getting the wonder of blab. a lot of folk tell me they are
shite, but, of course, these people are fuckin retards so I take no notice of them
whatsoever. these two guys are comedy geniuses (genii?) and how they aren’t
much better known i’ll never know. this is called ‘shneesh shneesh shneesh’,
as if you had to ask and could be one of the most funny and surreal two minutes
you will hear. anywhere.

18.   surprised at this one ‘not grabbing you’ cos the aliens are/were a wonderful
band. some ropey moments on the first album but luna is almost perfect. This is
‘dove returning’. I would check this album out before then going on to hunt down
the lone pigeon originals.

19.   ‘thank you lord’ by the lone pigeon. I shouldn’t really have to bang on about
gordon’s genius on these pages, but I will if you want. songs like this are what
your ears were invented for. And yes, the glitch appears on every copy.

and finally

26. one of fence’s most underrated bands in my humble opinion. northern alliance
with their take on ‘ally’s tartan army’. a piece of lofi class to finish off with. fronted
by author doug johnstone who is known to many around here. well worth hunting
out their music as is doug’s fiction which seems to get better with each release.




80 per cent hit rate? i’ll take that. glad you enjoyed most of it. the pleasure’s been all mine.

Now Wakes the Sea is my pal! We've just made an album together in my flat in St Andrews actually. He's about to release an album on Mini50 Records who released Conquering Animal Sound's first record. Here's a song from it:

Working away for a few days this week I was able to give my mix a few listens. It's an electronica-laden synth spectacular cd courtesy, I believe, of Baldpar. Call me Agent Cooper but I think the timing of its arrival, the content of the cd and the Dunfermline postcard that came with it point in his direction.

Track 1 – OK? Ready? Let’s Do It, announces Phil Oakey as Being Boiled by the Human League gets us underway. A favourite of mine from my early teens, this, the b-side Circus of Death and the Normal’s Warm Leatherette/TVOD were rarely off the turntable and a staple of every mix tape. A great start.
Track 2 – A meandering bass line runs throughout this one before a soft female voice gives us a chorus which seems inspired by the Tom Tom Club. Pleasant enough, but 3 of the almost 5 minutes would have been enough.
Track 3 – I recognise this as Miaoux Miaoux, don’t know the song but I’m struck how much it sounds like the Lightning Seeds circa the Sense album. I really like this, which is a double whammy as I’ll check out more MM and re-visit Sense, which I loved but haven’t played for years
Track 4 – One of only 2 Chvrches songs in my collection, I think this was a freebie on itunes one day. I really liked The Mother We Share but anything else from them, including this, has left me underwhelmed. It’s not bad, just ok
Track 5 – More synth to get us started on this one which soar over the top of a Claire Groganesque female vocal, although heaven forfend that Claire would use the ‘c’ word. I’ve surprised myself by liking this as it’s not something that I’d seek out, which is the great thing about a beef/hub mix. Will be interested to find out who this is.
Track 6 – Our very own Jon Hopkins with Open Eye Signal from the excellent Immunity album.
Track 7 – Back to my teenage years with Donna Summer’s I Feel Love. Given that I’d discovered The Jam, The Clash, The Pistols and The Stranglers, along with any number of lesser quality ‘punk’ bands, this passed me by when my brother had it on a constant play. Over the years I came to really like it, but 9 minutes with added Rivers of Slime’esque knob twiddling is a bit too much for me, moved onto track 8 after about 4 minutes.
Track 8 – I was really enjoying this as an instrumental, then the vocal kicked in and spoiled it. The throaty male vocal and orgasmic grunts turn me right off and probably would have got it banned by Radio 1 in the 70’s. If there’s a fully instrumental version of this kicking about I’m in, but the singer should have a wank in his own time, not mine.
Track 9 – More synths, if Miaoux Miaoux hadn’t already been on earlier I’d have thought it was them. Not the best on the mix but, not unpleasant. Can’t really think of much more to say about it. It is what it is.
Track 10 – I’ve reached synthpop saturation point now and would love to hear a guitar, but, it’s more synthpop and to my untrained ears, this sounds like a slightly quicker version of the one that went before.
Track 11 – This is more like it, a Marine Girls feel to this one, a gentle swoony love song, a summery feel good kind of song. No idea who it is but I like it, I’m back onboard.

Track 12 – Back to a synth drum beat after the brief respite. An instrumental number which is not offensive to the ear but isn’t in the league of track 8, (without the ononism).
Track 13 – This is great, despite having absolutely none of their stuff I know it’s Public Service Broadcasting and it reminds me that I need to own their album. By the time the song is over it’s been ordered. Other than the timeless Being Boiled this is the best track on the mix, love it.

Overall it’s been really enjoyable to listen to a genre that I’m rarely exposed to. Whilst I’d probably prefer to hear them in smaller chunks, I liked most of the tracks, particularly Miauox Miauox and PSB, albums by both have now been bought since receiving this mix. I will leave most of them on my ipod and if you have an instrumental version of track 8 then I’m all ears. Chees Baldpar (?), much appreciated.

Here's the full reveal -

Track 1 Human League - Being Boiled.
Track 2 - The Jellies - Jive Baby on a Saturday Night. I first heard this on Lauren Laverne's show. Don't know a whole lot about it.
Track 3 - Miaoux Miaoux - Better For Now. Glad you liked  it enough to buy the album.
Track 4 - Chvrches - Tether. I know they divide opinion but I love the album.
Track 5 - Becky Becky - The Harder Stuff. She's remixed some Pictish Trail stuff.
Track 6 - Jon Hopkins - Open Eye Signal. Possibly my fave album of last year. Superb stuff.
Track 7 - Donna Summer - I Feel Love (Patrick Cowley mix). Found it on a New Order Back to Mine compilation.
Track 8 - Frankie Knuckles - Your Love. He passed away today.
Track 9 - Caribou - Odessa.
Track 10 - Delphic - This Momentary. Obviously influenced by New Order.
Track 11 - Metronomy - Everything Goes My Way taken from The English Riviera album.
Track 12 - F**K My Acid - Stexis. A De-Fence 10x10. I think Steve Mason is involved.
Track 13 - Public Service Broadcasting - Spitfire. Their mix of public service film soundtracks and the rhythms really work for me.

I'm glad you enjoyed some of the music that I love  :)

Post by: DemonInDisguise on Tue, Apr 01, 2014, 22:14 PM
I gave my AETC HUBMIX a listen while walking through a cemetery and along a river.

1) uplifting banjo tune wherein laser beams are mixed up with mules. That crosses many circles of my Venn diagram. Nice start.

2) there's going to be a party when the wolf comes home. Says the band who may have influenced Coldplay tribute act the Mumfords of Doom. Imagine a sort of alt.folk band of the 90s.

3) I feel I should be able to name these Wannadies / Friends Theme sorts. I may even have this song."This is a song" they correctly sing. Maybe these had a bigger hit I know?

4) you know how Van Morrison pretends to be American? This might be him doing that, but being funny, audience cheers & whoops.

I will have to reevaluate on listen #2

5) Bluesy hippity hop sounding thang. Namechecking the good shizzle. Mellow. PM Don Henley.

6) Plant & Krauss. Lovely. Apparently 2nd album sessions did not work. Darn.

Oh well, at least we have Lindi Ortega covering Desperado.

7) "Almost nothing is what I can tell you about this song. Nice moping. Probably one of those ones everyone likes and I should know. Moving pictures, silent films.

8) Ah. More familiar territory. I Couldn't Bear To Be Special, by Prefab Sprout. Perfect follow on from previous track.

9) it's a song about twin towers.

Nice trippy synth almost like Tony Mansfield's mote reflective moments. I could definitely see this as an update of Sad Films. I will be wanting to.hear more by this chap.

10) pia pia piano. Boys & girls in cars. I have heard of this. Dunno who it is. Another likable moping tune.

ooh more plane crash imagery.

11) Sax.

And the first track that doesn't really saxisfy me.

12) Portishead on the other hand.

I now want to listen to the whole of Dummy and maybe an Airbus Reconstruction could have helped those plane crash songs.

13) wibbly wobbly electro folk instrumental.

14) World musack. Tabla, that throat singy sounding synth. Jazzy beats. Niiiice. Something Transglobal.

I have just passed those two blokes that were interviewed on the news this.morning on the occasion of them getting married. Nice.

This is wibbling on a bit now.

Oh, it's over.

Good work my mixer. I could listen to this again..I could even already own more than I suspect. If not, the mp3 shops of certain bands could be busy.

Here's the full reveal for the playlist of the Hub Mix that I provided for A.Heathen:

1. Scent of a Mule by Phish, from the album Hoist. Never fully drank the Kool Aid with Phish but have a few of their early albums, one of which this track is taken from. I do like the fact that they'll try lots of different styles. Nice bit of humour in this song and I think it's Bela Fleck guesting on banjo. A silly song that actually requires some serious musicianship to play.

2. Up The Wolves by The Mountain Goats, from the album The Sunset Tree. One of my favourite bands, The Mountain Goats is really John Darnielle. A tremendous songwriter who is as prolific as KC. This track is on what is the first autobiographical album by him, prior to this all songs/albums were just stories. He has had a very 'interesting' life and has lived to tell the tale. The Sunset Tree sounds like a recipe for disaster, dealing with physical abuse from his violent step-father when growing up, but he's such a good writer that half of the time you probably wouldn't realise what he's writing about. In fact, it was only when he was interviewed on a podcast with comedian Marc Maron (WTF podcast) that he really opened up. Great live performer too, there's plenty on YouTube - I would urge you to check him out.

3. This Is A Song by The Magic Numbers, from the album Those The Brokes. Just a great pop song. I don't get in to a lot of pop stuff these days but The Magic Numbers write some nice songs. I see they're playing Glasgow later in the year so may have to get some tickets.

4. Demon In Disguise by David Bromberg, from the DVD Live At The Maintenance Shop. David Bromberg is a legend. He made his name in the late 60s as a sideman for people like Dylan and Jerry Jeff Walker (Mr Bojangles). A virtuoso on guitar, mandolin and fiddle. This very performance was included on a late night program called On the Live Side that used to show on ITV in the late 80s at about 3am. It must have been the school holidays, but I was living in Cupar at the time and remember videoing it. I still have the tape. It was only about 5 years ago that I saw they had released the whole gig on DVD - instant purchase. He was burned out and quit the music business shortly after this and disappeared for 20 years during which he trained as a violin maker and opened up a shop in Delaware, becoming the world authority on American fiddles and bows. He claims he didn't play at all for 20 years and then, about 5 years ago, he started playing again and is also recording. The other reason for the song was a clue to the mixer - when I created my Hub profile and had to come up with a name I happened to see another of his DVDs on a shelf and just grabbed the song title - yup, that pointless.

5. Blues Music by G. Love & Special Sauce, from the album G. Love & Special Sauce. Great modern take on roots and blues from a white boy from Philly. This album is from the early 90s. I saw him on Jools Holland, way back when, and saw him at the Garage in Glasgow shortly thereafter.

6. Killing The Blues by Robert Plant & Alison Krauss, from the album Raising Sand. Most people probably know this. I was never a Led Zep fan but I think this was a great album for Plant.

7. Moving Pictures Silent Films by Great Lake Swimmers, from the album Great Lake Swimmers. Built around main man Tony Dekker, a Canadian band that are very mellow. Heard of them when they were interviewed in Tape Op magazine and they were talking about how, for this album, they recorded out in the middle of nowhere in an old grain silo, to get really unusual reverb sounds. Nice songs, nice tunes, nothing dangerous.

8. I Couldn't Bear To Be Special by Prefab Sprout, from the album Swoon. This is one of two albums that transitioned me from plain rock music, in the mid-80s, to something a bit more thoughtful - this and Stop Making Sense by Talking Heads. Swoon is still a doozie of an album. Shame what's happened to Paddy McAloon though. The latest album is quite nice, but would have been better with other band members. Great songwriter though.

9. Exodus Damage by John Vanderslice, from the album Pixel Revolt. San Francisco based songwriter and studio owner. I think I've mentioned him before - he owns the last fully analogue studio on the West Coast of the US, called Tiny Telephone. JVs a top bloke and recently recorded a released (limited) a reinterpretation of Bowies Diamond Dogs album - not simply straight covers. It is tremendous, and I'm not really a Bowie fan although I know some of the songs he has reinterpreted. I really interesting guy with views about the music industry, and how to make a living, that I think are very similar to KCs. A working musician for sure.

10. The Commander Thinks Aloud by The Long Winters, form the EP Ultimatum. Another band that is really one personality, in this case John Roderick. If it sounds familiar it may be because I believe the track was used on a TV series called The OC - not one I am familiar with. The songs about the space shuttle Columbia that disintegrated on re-entry. Seems to reduce geeks, everywhere, to tears.

11.   Whisper by Morphine, from the album Yes. Another band first heard on Jools Holland. Two string bass played with a slide and a sax player that plays two saxes simultaneously a la Roland Kirk. Always liked the unusual instrumentation but it's probably an acquired taste.

12. Biscuit by Portishead, from the album Dummy. First heard on Radio 3's Mixing It. Immediately bought the album - it didn't disappoint. A barnstormer of a first album, not sure if they ever equalled it.

13.   Melanine by Tycho, from the album Dive. Scott Hansen, a San Francisco based graphic artist using the handle ISO50 who also records under the soubriquet Tycho. Gets accused of being a bit of a Boards of Canada copyist which is probably fair to a certain extent. He certainly uses a lot of similar textures but I think he has a stronger sense of melody and structure than BOC - and I say that as a BOC fan. His latest album has just been released in the last couple of days so I'll be keen to see if he has developed his style - particularly in light of the release of Tomorrow's Harvest by BOC (miaow!).

14. Cucumber Slumber by Material, from the album Hallucination Engine. Just thought I'd add this as there seems to be a lot of love for electronic type stuff on the Hub. Another Radio 3 Mixing It discovery. It's a project of Bill Laswell's with a lot of heavy hitters participating including Wayne Shorter, William S Burroughs, Bootsy Collins, L Shankar, Sly Dunbar, Trilok Gurtu - has the dangerous potential to be a Jazz-Rock love in.

That complete's the scores for Belgium! Happy to say that I got lots of good stuff in my Mix and hopefully I've introduced a few new things for someone else. After all, who doesn't need more bands to get in to?

Bring on round 2 - may have to leave the beaten track for that one.

Post by: Bootsfordancing on Wed, Apr 02, 2014, 02:02 AM
The mix took about three listens before it kicked in and  I began to appreciate all the nuances.

1)  The mix starts with what  can only be described as 'music hall madness'!

2)  Next we have a rollercoaster ride of 60's pop at it's most dramatic. I can see where Meat Loaf got his chops from. Classic kitsch.

3)  A breathy seductive chantress who has me weak at the knees. Wonderful.

4)  60's retro style slightly psychedelic pop, probably done by a modern band. More please.

5)  Some nice spaced out trance/dub reggae.

6) This could be off a 60's soundtrack. Again I suspect a more modern band.

7)  More 60's retro style pop. Nice 'n' cool. First part of the mix over.

8)  Now a change of feel with some nicely 'dated' folky acoustic guitar.

9)  Leading into Ivor Cutler. Always a pleasure.

10) Gentle piano instrumental.

11)  Keeping the tranquil mood with an orchestral piece, and the end of this part of the mix.

12)  That's the 'chill' over. Now we have a nice 'n' cheesy version of 'Daydream Believer'.

13)  Country/pop sung the way I would imagine Jerry Lee Lewis doing it.

14)  A 'rude' tongue in cheek bit of folky humour.

15)  Ah, a song I know. Lindisfarne - 'Fog On The Tyne'.

16)  Some Scottish traditional Scottish folk music, fiddles and all.

17)  WHO IS THIS? I think I've heard that voice. Great 'loopy' guitar, I love it.

18)  Retro poppy/rootsy sound. Could it be Supergrass?

19)  Classic Northern Soul single. 'Seven days Is Too Long' - Chuck Woods.

20)  That breathy seductive chantress again. She could read the phone book and sound sexy!

21)  Cool jazz instrumental.

22)  Lovely version of 'Blues Run The Game'.

23)  Funny interlude.

24)  Classic Dean Martin.

25)  Another slice of pop drama (80's style) to close the mix.

No home should be without this mix. It's everything a good mix should be. As soon as I get the track listing I'll start checking out some of the artists. So a big shout out to Mixmaster Supreme Bootsfordancing!

The only downside was that I had to purchase a French lexicon to fully appreciate the mix. A minor quibble though cause I have now expanded my vocabulary. 'Mercy buckets' Bootsfordancing.  ;D


1) Go-Go Pogo                                     Walt Kelly, the cartoonist who created Pogo - he did several Pogo related musical/spoken word discs
2) Eloise                                              Barry Ryan, 1968.....aaaaahhhh you gotta check out the video on youtube - mental!

6) I Wish I Could have Loved you More   Candie Payne
7) A Million Miles Away                          Saints (from new 2013 album) nice to see Bruce Springsteen do a Saints cover on his new album...!
8) Guitar Miniature #3                           North Sea Radio Orchestra
9) Size Nine And Half                             Ivor Cutler

18) Codeine                                          Tap Tap (same chap as Teleman i think)
19) Seven Days Too Long                       Chuck Wood
20) America's Weather Girl                     April Stevens (never enough...)

23) Booth's Dry Gin                                Barry Gray
24) Littel Ole Wine Drinker Me                 Dean Martin
25) Dead the Beast, Dead the Poison       Radiators (from space) 2nd album produced by Toni Visconti - classic overlooked album from '79 Phil Chevron went on to be in the Pogues....sadly passed away last summer... they got back together and did a really amazing 'nuggets' type project on Irish rock that inspired the early irish punk scene...well worth checking out

after a good few weeks with "Dreams And How To Interpret Them" i'm as ready as can be to dive in...
1) this sounds french (late 50's early 60s maybe) post django guitar work it's great, catchy as all get out... reminds me a lot of the style Richard was playing at the "rugby club" show last april...
2) nice mix into the ether of a spacious electro piece -  no idea - very nice
3) yikes not a clue.. african acoustic...really really nice - i honestly listen to so little like this...great change
4) oh finally one i know - can't remember who but it's from the Fruit Tree Foundation - oh the rabbit chap!
5) 2 in a row....FAB towers own B Callahan/smog... can't place which album - always a treat !
6) great piano driven rocker - feel the accent in the vocals... (reminds me mike scott pushin' at classic country - before being over produced, quirkier...
7) KC  :)
8) Tales Of the Road.... ? reminds me of TV smiths explorers (bit more polished maybe)
9) great mix into a classical piece not "ride of the valkyries" so not a clue, - lovely though
10) "this is how it feels to be lonely..." not a clue sounds like an andrew lloyd webber meets scott walker over the top....
11) "Don't fence me in..." classic cowboy song, love this - used to sing my girls to sleep with this..... nice version - not gene autry that's fer sure:O
12) yeah another one i know... Frightened R... 
13) hmm "caught a cold last night"... not a clue (repeat to fade...)
14) great greasy american roots rock, voice sounds familiar.... sounds like ray wylie H fronting the replacments :)
15) more swampy americana - should know this,  great work out - older than 14 - 70s probably
16) prettiest robot - great quirky guitar workout meets arab strap - not a clue but great fun
17)  - alasdair methinks
18) yeah mista callhan again - :)
19) KC ......never talks too much
20) lovely etheral musings.. a carousel swingin round and bringing you in - with record needle noises (faux in the mix) not a clue but great mix stuff
21) cooos & horses and acoustic doodling - and contemporary yodeelling
straight into... ivor C and mudddddddd YeaH!
22) ivor c.... too funny i went there too in the mix i sent out (poll time: how many ivor c tracks on hub mixes :) ?)

wonderful stuff can't thank you enough, suspecting it's congo bongo as we both stumbled in at the end but ?????

In keeping with the guidlines of Hubclub mainman fuctifano


A full tracklist on the review is always a good idea. 8)

here is the full reveal of my mix for Bootsfordancing  ;D

 1  Claude Vasori - 'Folk guitar' (obscure French chappie, not to be confused with TV / soundtrack composer with the same name)
 2  Daniel Figgis - 'The please front'
 3  Zuba - 'Moonlight' (Glasgow outfit, not to be confused with more popular American funky poppers)
 4  The Fruit Tree Foundation - 'Splinter'
 5  Smog - 'Dress sexy at my funeral'
 6  Vigilantes Of Love - 'Hip train' (one of my favourite 'rootsy' bands, fronted by Bill Mallonee)
 7  King Creosote - I awoke'
 8  Justin Sullivan - 'Tales of the road' (New Model Army bloke but in a different style altogether)
 9  Alan Hovhaness - 'Angel of light'
10 The Clint Boon Experience - 'This is how it feels' (takes the Inspiral Carpets song and transforms it)
11 Michael L. Clamp - 'Don't fence me in' (lovely version of a lovely song)
12 Frightened Rabbit - 'Old old fashioned'
13 Knocker Jungle - 'Caught a cold last night' (only an old hippie band could have written a song like that!)
14 Charlie Pickett & The Mothers Of Propriety - 'What I like about Miami' (If Miami is as good s they say, I wanna go!)
15 Link Ray - 'Black River swamp' (this shows another side to Link Wray; Americana, as opposed to his usual 'power chord' style.)
16 Stupidity For Blood - 'The prettiest robot' (has the memorable line "what she lacked in organs she made up for with a lovely ass" and as a bonus his voice is like James Yorkston's, to my ears anyway)
17 The Fruit Tree Foundation - 'Beware beware'
18 Bill Callahan - 'A man needs a woman or a man to be a man' (hmmm, I'm trying to work that one out)
19 King Creosote - 'Just after 11 she left'
20 Daniel Figgis - 'Bolted'
21 Roger Dean Young & The Tin Cup - 'Stettler'
22 Ivor Cutler Trio - 'Mud'

Maybe I was a wee bit too conservative with my first Hubclub mix. I'll be more adventurous next time.  :)

Review of my mix tape.

1. Ivor Cutler discussing breasts, a great fondness of mine; Ivor Cutler that is.
2. Some electronica – its ok

3. Strange piece of music with odd / out of tune Scandinavian sounding vocals.
4. Slightly kookie female vocal.  its ok.
5. I don’t get this church music thing.

Glad those three are over not my cup of tea.

6. Ah rock music, guitars etc. I’m feeling more comfortable.
7. From the National’s latest output. The Knitnurse has an obsession with Matt Berringer and I been taken to see them several times. They are annoyingly good.
8 The wonderful Mark Linkous. of Sparklehorse. A great loss.
9. Nice bit of new /alt country. First one I wanted to know who it is.
10 Some fiddle music. My guess it’s American and young. The playing is too quick to be British. Bet I’m totally wrong. Good though.
11 Lovely piano intro. Reminded me of a Sandy Denny track. It’s good
12. I know and like these guys. Remind me.
13. That was nice intro and now we’re into the Shipping Forecast. My first response it must be the exceptionally annoying Public Service Broadcasting but then I have in my mind it may be River of Slime in which case it’s a masterpiece.
14. Ivor to finish, lovely.

If we are looking at this analytically it scored 11 out 14 or a 78% success rate.
As a mix tape it worked well except that strange 3 track interlude.

My initial thoughts to the identity of the mixer where breasts at the beginning followed by something electronic it must be Funky. But the National track made  me think again.

So thanks to my mixer. I do enjoy receiving them.

78% from Reg Banks - that's a B+, yes? alriiighty! i put this together when i should've been last minute packing my suitcase for the US ... what, no towel?!

i can't remember much of what was on there, other than 3, 4 and 5 by king creosote  ;)
i'll have no doubt written the track listing down on an old envelope.

It's true - the world DOES catch up eventually...  8)

Actually, The War Room EP is better than the album (I have some issues with the sequencing of the album, plus they could've picked better stuff off the first EP for the album). And catch them live if you can - they really do put on an excellent show.

Snap. Picked it up in Fopp (Glasgow) yesterday. Only regret is that I didn't grab The War Room EP at the same time - it was only £6. Grabbed me right from the first track - has a vibe not unlike Soundphiles by Kinobe. Guitar and banjo too, what's not to love?

Also managed to pick up a copy of Buff Tracks #3 - With Punchlines EP. A successful day out.

Well I've listened to my mix few times now and will now go over it with you. I have to admit that I didn't recognise many of the tracks / artists at all.  There's a lot of music out there that I am obviously not familiar with.

Track 1 - Disc cleaning instructions as an introduction. Very funny.

Track 2 - Starts off with two minutes of instrumental electronica then an ethereal female vocal kicks in. A bit long at 7 minutes. No idea who it is.

Track 3 - More instrumental electronica, shorter than track 2. Nice, no idea who it is.

Track 4 - Similar to track 3. Pleasant enough. Again I have no idea who this is.

Track 5 - Electronica again with a bit more piano. No vocals and I'm clueless as to who it might be.

Track 6 - Some guitars and a male vocal. Short and catchy. I think this is Jagwar Ma. I like it.

Track 7 - More guitars but a scuzzier sound. Male vocals. Short and catchy again. No idea who though.

Track 8 - A female vocal this time. The vocals are a bit distorted. More guitars. I would listen to more of this band.

Track 9 - I think this might be This Is The Kit. A slower and more downbeat tune.

Track 10 - A slow male vocal with plenty of percussion My lack of musical knowledge is beginning to astound me !

Track 11 - An instrumental song with some guitar feedback and some drums. More downbeat then some of the other guitar tracks. Quite a lengthy track. Maybe a bit long.

Track 12 - Some high pitched keyboard which sound a bit glockenspiel ish which then turn darker and broodier. I'm interested to find out who this is by as again I have no idea who the artist is.

Track 13 - Some techno ish electronica with no vocals.

Track 14 - I know this !  :) It's Elfstendentacht by Public Service Broadcasting. Great track. This song isn't on their fantastic album.

Track 15 - More synths with a male vocal. Enjoyable. We're back to not knowing who this is by.

Track 16 - Another instrumental track with piano and percussion. I like it.

Track 17 - Jimmy Shand - The Bluebell Polka !! This song was played at the end of Dunfermline games at East End Park. Brought back memories of going to the football at East End Park with my dad.

Track 18 - It's the disc cleaning lady again. Very funny.

So out of 18 tracks I am only familiar with four of them. My mix has been an introduction to a lot of music and I am grateful for that. Thanks to my mystery mixer and to Fuctifano for organising it  :) :)

Well I've listened to my mix few times now and will now go over it with you. I have to admit that I didn't recognise many of the tracks / artists at all.  There's a lot of music out there that I am obviously not familiar with.

Hello. I am your mystery compiler of your mysterious compilation.

Track 1 - Disc cleaning instructions as an introduction. Very funny.

Track 2 - Starts off with two minutes of instrumental electronica then an ethereal female vocal kicks in. A bit long at 7 minutes. No idea who it is.

This is I Break Horses, from Sweden, takem from their new(ish) record, Chiaroscuro. I'm more than a bit smitten with vocalist Maria Linden - shame they performed behind a gossamer curtain when they supported Sigur Ros at the Usher Hall last year. I actually prefer their debut record, but I really like the atmosphere of this track, which is called Medicine Brush. Honest - it is. No sign of the Dettol, though...

Track 3 - More instrumental electronica, shorter than track 2. Nice, no idea who it is.

Pye Corner Audio with Electronic Rhythm No 2 from Volume 4 of their Black Mills Tapes series. For me, Pye Corner Audio are by far the best act on Ghost Box - their bass lines are just wonderful.

Track 4 - Similar to track 3. Pleasant enough. Again I have no idea who this is.

Yeah, I was going for flow with this one, although I'm surprised you didn't recognise that it's the Theme From Hallowe'en, as covered by French electro fiends Zombie Zombie from their record of John Carpenter movie theme covers. It's a great record, which only adds to confusion as to who is best between Zombi, Zomby and Zombie Zombie (the answer is, of course, Zombi...)

Track 5 - Electronica again with a bit more piano. No vocals and I'm clueless as to who it might be.

Continuing with the movie links, this is the ultra-talented Johann Johannsson from his new soundtrack to the film McCanick (no, me neither). Johannsson is one of the go-to guys for modern classical soundtrack stuff alongside Max Richter and Olafur Arnalds. It's lovely stuff.

Track 6 - Some guitars and a male vocal. Short and catchy. I think this is Jagwar Ma. I like it.

On the money - the album was a bit hit and miss, but this track (Let Her Go) just soars, like a classic Jellyfish track.

Track 7 - More guitars but a scuzzier sound. Male vocals. Short and catchy again. No idea who though.

Some guys from Northern Ireland move to Scotland to study, form a band, make a rough & ready record on an obscure Scottish label. But it's not Snow Patrol, it's Young Aviators. Cracking wee pop-punk tune, though, called Rejection Letter, which actually reminds me a bit of Snow Patrol's Starfighter Pilot. You've been warned, everyone...

Track 8 - A female vocal this time. The vocals are a bit distorted. More guitars. I would listen to more of this band.

Love this record, undoubtedly one of the releases of the year so far - it's Angel Olsen with High & Wild from Burn Your Fire For No Witness. Track it down, you won't be disappointed.

Track 9 - I think this might be This Is The Kit. A slower and more downbeat tune.

Score! Earthquake from Wriggle Out The Restless. They played a great set at Gnomegame (I think) last year. Love the guitar sound on this.

Track 10 - A slow male vocal with plenty of percussion My lack of musical knowledge is beginning to astound me !

Don't worry about it - it's hardly a mainstream release! This is Great Cities from The Ahabs, which is the latest in a long line of alter-egos of multi-talented Fence alumnus John Amino, who once sold an entire record label to Deegers. True story! If you like, you can cover the price of a new pair of pants for John by downloading the record here: http://theahabs.bandcamp.com/

Track 11 - An instrumental song with some guitar feedback and some drums. More downbeat then some of the other guitar tracks. Quite a lengthy track. Maybe a bit long.

This is Virginia Waveform by Pan-American, which is about as good as guitar drone gets. Much of their record is rubbish, but this track is crying out for a Mogwai cover.

Track 12 - Some high pitched keyboard which sound a bit glockenspiel ish which then turn darker and broodier. I'm interested to find out who this is by as again I have no idea who the artist is.

I'm awfully glad about that, as this is one of my favourite artists of recent years, Loscil. He's got loads of stuff out, and not a dud release amongst them. This is an alternative version of Estuarine which was originally found on perhaps his best-known record, Endless Falls. If you like this, dive in - you're in for a treat.

Track 13 - Some techno ish electronica with no vocals.

God, I LOVE this record - this is the track Milk from Moderat II. Moderat is a collaboration between Apparat and Modeselektor (see what they did there? Whack Germans!). Jon Hopkins has done some remix work with them, which probably wouldn't come as too much of a surprise.

Track 14 - I know this !  :) It's Elfstendentacht by Public Service Broadcasting. Great track. This song isn't on their fantastic album.

Back of the net! The 2 tracks on this single were actually commissioned for the titular ice skating race, which apparently takes place between 12 towns in Holland. It's such a big deal over there that some of the Dutch skaters competing in teh Winter Olympics were prepared to ditch Sochi for it if conditions had allowed this year's race to take place.

Track 15 - More synths with a male vocal. Enjoyable. We're back to not knowing who this is by.

And we're back in Germany, with Run Run Run by The Notwist from their new record, Close To The Glass. There's so much interesting stuff coming out of Germany these days it's hard to keep up.

Track 16 - Another instrumental track with piano and percussion. I like it.

Lovely, innit? Hauschka (real name Volker Bertelmann) is another German. He uses treated pianos to create some fascinating and original sounds. I've seen an online clip of him playing his weird, warped instruments live, and it's quite astonishing. Anyway, this is Thames Town from his latest record, Abandoned City.

Track 17 - Jimmy Shand - The Bluebell Polka !! This song was played at the end of Dunfermline games at East End Park. Brought back memories of going to the football at East End Park with my dad.

I dread to think how many time I've heard this down the years. I reckon there's a Pavlovian quality about this - play this and, no matter what I'm doing, I'll leave.

Track 18 - It's the disc cleaning lady again. Very funny.

So out of 18 tracks I am only familiar with four of them. My mix has been an introduction to a lot of music and I am grateful for that. Thanks to my mystery mixer and to Fuctifano for organising it  :) :)

I gave this a live review whilst working from home this afternoon
01   Film soundtrack in the style of Isaac Hayes some nice keys n horns on this I would guess this is a modern tune and not one from the 70’s.

02   Funky Penguin think I’ve got this Kool & The Gang? Or maybe it’s Ike Turner

03   A little funky number with a male singer with a gritty voice

04   Another on the R&B n Funk tip I’ve got a few of these style comps but don’t know this once.

05   Change of style a bit of Rock N Roll style with 50’s sounding keys and shadows sounding guitar

06   On to early calypso/reggae now British 60’s I think I have a track by this guy Lord somebody? Or is it Rico Rodriguez now that we have a trombone solo, if it’s him I’ve enjoyed him singing on Jules show over the last few years.

07   More in the same style I’m liking this, are these tracks from an Honest Johns compilation?

08   Got an Asian tune now is this Suhail?

09   An instrumental can’t really tell you the style but I am enjoying it

10   This reminds me of Adrian Crowley only it’s a female singer!
Nice quiet track with lots of use of space.  Hold on it’s livening up a bit at the end.

11    I gave it a minute soz didn’t like it

12   starts a bit like a Joy Division track like it

13   Sounds 80’s new wave but is probably a new track nice use of keys with a fast beat not to keen on the vocals

14   This sounds familiar, or maybe its just the drum intro I’ve heard before. Didn’t do too much for me maybe it was The Splits?

15   Acoustic male singer, like this nice keys and background sound of kids playing.  Now joined by another singer.  Need to know who this is.  Maybe it’s Slow Club?

16   Nice Americana pedal steel going on here behind the singer the male singers a bit to MOR for me.

17   Is this UNPOC? Sounds like him, like it anyway

18   Fencey sounding is it Liz Green?

19   Now it sounds like we are off to Africa.  I like Fela Kuti and William Onyebour but a lot of other African music is not quite my scene this tune is good though.

Well thank you mixer I look forward to the reveal there are some tunes I will be investigating further Oh and thx for the industrial parts catalog that came with the mix too the recycling figures for Ashford needed the help.

I gave this a live review whilst working from home this afternoon

Hello CB!

01   Film soundtrack in the style of Isaac Hayes some nice keys n horns on this I would guess this is a modern tune and not one from the 70’s.

The first few tracks are all about the funk. This is Moon Trek by The Mike Theodore Orchestra. I put this on the very fisrt mix club cd on the beef.

02   Funky Penguin think I’ve got this Kool & The Gang? Or maybe it’s Ike Turner

do the Funky Penguin (pt1) Rufus Thomas. Always a crowd pleaser at the dj party in my head.

03   A little funky number with a male singer with a gritty voice

(Everyone wanna get rich) Right away by doctor john. The funk keeps rolling.

04   Another on the R&B n Funk tip I’ve got a few of these style comps but don’t know this onc

Total destruction to your mind - Swamp dogg. This popped up on a listening post somewhere. Great fun.

05   Change of style a bit of Rock N Roll style with 50’s sounding keys and shadows sounding guitar

someday - the growlers. I really 'dig' this band although I've maybe overplayed them a bit. they do a festival called beach goth party which I imagine to be like homegame but with more sex and drugs. unless I've been going to the wrong parties at homegame.

06   On to early calypso/reggae now British 60’s I think I have a track by this guy Lord somebody? Or is it Rico Rodriguez now that we have a trombone solo, if it’s him I’ve enjoyed him singing on Jules show over the last few years.

Loverboy - Derrick Morgan. This was played on live from the latin quarter the other week. although it took Dylan goes electric about a week to remember what it's called. Good song for grooving about to while drinking Malibu I find

07   More in the same style I’m liking this, are these tracks from an Honest Johns compilation?

Zombie Jamboree  -King Flash and the Calypso Carnival. I don't know what an honest john comp is - maybe I should check it oot? Loads of fun with the kids making up lyrics to this. Zombie Tangerines, tub of margarine, sunday humming bees etc...


08   Got an Asian tune now is this Suhail?

Arghane manine - Terakaft. This one and the last one were actually on an Errors mix thing on soundcloud. loads of good stuff on there. so I knicked the idea of putting these two track back to back, belly to belly.

09   An instrumental can’t really tell you the style but I am enjoying it

Silver factory theme- dean & britta. I got a mix from deegers with one of their songs on it. the whole album is really good. 13 most beautiful.


10   This reminds me of Adrian Crowley only it’s a female singer!
Nice quiet track with lots of use of space.  Hold on it’s livening up a bit at the end.

Light - Slow down, Molasses. Yeah, I like how it turns into a house song with trumpets at the end! I see what you mean by the AC ref - hadn't got that before. Rubbish name for a band though!

11    I gave it a minute soz didn’t like it

]Year of the Cat - book Group. maybe its the contrast from the last track? although I thought they ended and started quite well together - oh well! This is local (Edinburgh) lads book group. always good live.


12   starts a bit like a Joy Division track like it

No youth - cosmic thoughts. don't know a lot about this but it sounds fun to play.


13   Sounds 80’s new wave but is probably a new track nice use of keys with a fast beat not to keen on the vocals

Heebbie Jeebies - St Kilda mailboat. Good fun. Another hit with the kids!

14   This sounds familiar, or maybe its just the drum intro I’ve heard before. Didn’t do too much for me maybe it was The Splits?

You are the generation that bought more shoes and you get what you deserve - johnnyboy. Apparently this was a minor hit in the 90s. I love the melody. and the song title.

15   Acoustic male singer, like this nice keys and background sound of kids playing.  Now joined by another singer.  Need to know who this is.  Maybe it’s Slow Club?

I'll Be on the water - Akron Family. Got this on a mix from Doc Love. Nice innit. It's the highlight of wjaterver album it's on

16   Nice Americana pedal steel going on here behind the singer the male singers a bit to MOR for me.

Wherever there is light - No-man. Don't know much about this tbh it just kinda found it's way onto the cd. point taken about the mor thang. Thought it went well with what went before and after though.

17   Is this UNPOC? Sounds like him, like it anyway

Tugboat - Meursault. a galaxie 500 cover. I think this is great. simple lyrics but just perfect.

18   Fencey sounding is it Liz Green?

Nomad - Emily Hall. She does an excellent cover of a phosphorescent song - this isn't it though...

19   Now it sounds like we are off to Africa.  I like Fela Kuti and William Onyebour but a lot of other African music is not quite my scene this tune is good though

Sabu Yerkoy - Ali Farka toure/Toumani diabate. Nice wee gentle tune to see us out. according to the sleeve notes this is a song from cuba. Everybody likes cuba, right?


Well thank you mixer I look forward to the reveal there are some tunes I will be investigating further Oh and thx for the industrial parts catalog that came with the mix too the recycling figures for Ashford needed the help.

Glad you enjoyed it! To be honest I had great fun putting it together, so everyone's happy  ;) 8)

My mate Iain runs the label St Kilda Mailboat are on…down (up) in Leith…they are all good eggs.

He came from a gubbin' ectos, loving' weegie hoose and US hip-hop background (in his youth), so I was weel taken aback when he played me their stuff a year or so ago. People, eh? Fu' o' surprises. Constantly.

St Kilda are great live byraway, catch em if ye can.

Thank you so much to my mixer. Fine mix. Really enjoyed this bar a couple of tracks which didn’t  do too much for me. Excuse my cloth eared twonkery.
Might be an age thing too, but I’m sure I am in possession of some of the tracks I can’t quite pin down.

Track 1 – The Go Team /Ladyflash. Nice. Good start
Track 2 – Seems really familiar, but I can’t pin this down at all. Real Estate?
Track 3 -  Again familiar. Wanted to say Mark Kozelek at first, but no.
Track 4 – Is this the Beta Band? Again, probably not. Great track though.
Track 5 – First ‘interlude’ track. No idea who this is at all and on first listen I thought
wtf. Grew on me though and I’d be keen to know who this is. “Porcupine or Pineapple!!! Spiky, spiky!!!”  Thrash pop punk.
Track 6 – The one track that didn’t really work for me. No idea who, but a bit irritating by the end. Sorry.
Track 7 – Love this. Nice Cello, driving bass, drums more Cello. Very uplifting instrumental.
Track 8 – Otis/Durutti Colmn – stone cold classic.
Track 9 – Another ‘interlude’ (as track 5) – great.
Track 10 – Another one that is frustratingly familiar! No. Love it though.
Track 11 – Stiff Little Fingers/Back to front.. I feel my mixer has given his identity away now.  :)
Track 12 – The Rakes – Work, work , work (Pub, club, sleep). Great track.
Track 13 – Interlude – I need to know who this band are.
Track 14 – FFS. Another one I know, but can’t place. Lovely though.
Track 15 – No idea about his one. “come pick me up, take me out, fuck me up, steal my records, screw all my friends” Nice sentiments. Great track though.
Track 16 – The wonderful Buck 65/Blood of a young Wolf. Fantastic.
Track 17 – The other track on the CD that didn’t quite ‘do it’ for me.
Track 18 – Is this British Sea Power? Can’t place the track.
Track 19 – Splendour in the grass. No idea who this version is by though. Familiar again.
Track 20 – Ethereal, fragile voice. Lovely, but no idea.
Track 21 – and we end with a 9 second track, as per the interludes. Perfect.

Cheers Leckers. ;)

Thank you so much to my mixer. Fine mix. Really enjoyed this bar a couple of tracks which didn’t  do too much for me. Excuse my cloth eared twonkery.
Might be an age thing too, but I’m sure I am in possession of some of the tracks I can’t quite pin down.

Track 1 – The Go! Team / Ladyflash. Nice. Good start
Spot on, great tune, saw them live a few times, mainly as support and really get the crowd fired up (e.g. Flaming Lips at Usher Hall a few years back)

Track 2 – Seems really familiar, but I can’t pin this down at all. Real Estate?
Good stab, Modest Mouse though.  Heard this again recently in the Barber Shop in Linlithgow, while having a Turkish shave (bloody fantastic, by the way…and cheap), sounded familiar but couldn’t place it and asked the young lad.  It’s off the Moon & Antartica album from 2000 which, as I suspected, I had at home and hadn’t listened to, probably since 2001!  This track is called Gravity Rides Everything but, it’s a really good album and could have put any of the tracks in.  It’s like getting a new record when you find a rarely played or unplayed oldie.

Track 3 -  Again familiar. Wanted to say Mark Kozelek at first, but no.
You’re correct, it’s not Mark Kozelek.  This is the song Earlies from the Trashcan Sinatras album “I’ve Seen Everything”.  They’ve many better songs but I felt this fitted well here and was a clue to the next lot.  The Trashcans can do no wrong, to these ears.

Track 4 – Is this the Beta Band? Again, probably not. Great track though.
The Earlies and Morning Wonder, plucked this from a Rough Trade Counter Culture compilation from 2007 or thereaboots that a certain KC also appears on with Klutz.

Track 5 – First ‘interlude’ track. No idea who this is at all and on first listen I thought wtf. Grew on me though and I’d be keen to know who this is. “Porcupine or Pineapple!!! Spiky, spiky!!!”  Thrash pop punk.
Haha, excellent.  It’s Brakes, with “Porcupine or Pineapple” from their third album, Touchdown.  These wee short tracks are great for sticking into mixes, whether people like them or not!!  They’re a great band though and, what some might call their “proper” songs are excellent too.  Apologies for rabitting on here but, I really love Brakes and they’re made up of Eamon (Hamilton) a founder member of British Sea Power and the brothers, Marc and Tom (Thomas) White of Electric Soft Parade…Have been lucky enough to see them live countless times and they never disappoint.  The sort of band that tire you out just from watching their on stage antics.  Sadly, we may never hear any more from them as Eamon, has moved to the States and settled-down outside New York/Jersey and is working in Real Estate!

Eamon then…
(http://2.bp.blogspot.com/_zwDAb6hoxqA/S9cPnyytCcI/AAAAAAAABQM/blgY4q6mSCE/s1600/Eamon+Hamilton.jpg)

Eamon now…
(http://p.rdcpix.com/v01/ab2531a00-c0l.jpg)

Here’s hoping Lawrence O’Toole Realty allow him some time off to get Brakes back on the road and into the recording studio.  Lovely guy though and wish him well

Track 6 – The one track that didn’t really work for me. No idea who, but a bit irritating by the end. Sorry.
It’s me who should be apologizing, I was intrigued when I first heard this and penciled it in for inclusion in this mix.  I subsequently decided to replace it with an equally bonkers track (Eggs by The Tranchenburg Family Slideshow Players http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jtaEwAP4Ok4 )  but much easier on the ears.  I then promptly forgot about the change when it came to burning the disc.  This track is The March of the Big White Barbarians by Jack Too Jack and, having listened a few more times, irritating is how I would describe it as well.  Shame as I think it’s upset the mix.

Track 7 – Love this. Nice Cello, driving bass, drums more Cello. Very uplifting instrumental.
Glad you like this one, it’s from a Remix album of Zoey Van Goey’s album Propeller Versus Wings.  The remix album is titled “Sexy Rave Eye Zooming” and includes tracks remixed by the great and the good of the Scottish music scene.  This was handed-out as part of the deal at the album proper’s launch gig at Stereo, at which Kid Canaveral supported. The track here is Escape Maps and, for me, is the best of the bunch and is the handiwork of one OnTheFly.  ZvG are no more but have a couple of very good albums to reflect on.  The singer, Kim (Moore), is a mate of my sister’s and last time I spoke to her she was on the verge of heading to an Inner Hebridean island to talk turkey with some exiled label boss?!

Track 8 – Otis/Durutti Column – stone cold classic.
Nothing to add here.

Track 9 – Another ‘interlude’ (as track 5) – great.
Brakes’ homage to Dick Cheney, “Cheney (Stop Being Such A Dick)”

Track 10 – Another one that is frustratingly familiar! No. Love it though.
Stumbled on this one after a very long time and played its way onto this mix, it’s The Pernice Brothers (who I know nothing about) and the track is “Zero Refills”.

Track 11 – Stiff Little Fingers/Back to front.. I feel my mixer has given his identity away now.   
Okay, insult aside, heard Back to Front again recently and was a nice reminder of the quality of songs they have outside of the better known ones (all prior to the Listen/£3.50 or less era, of course). Great live and Jim Reilly inspired me to quit playing drums in the pipe band and get a kit instead.  Hello, Jim.

Track 12 – The Rakes – Work, work , work (Pub, club, sleep). Great track.
Yep, really like The Rakes too.  Saw them early on at T in the Park when they appeared in, what I think was known then as, the X-Tent.  Same year as Brakes, Editors, et al.  Everyone in the tent ended up on the very small stage with the band during the last song of their set…bonkers…but in a very good way.
 
Track 13 – Interlude – I need to know who this band are.
Most of these wee, short numbers are on Brakes’ first album, Give Blood, with just the odd one in subsequent albums.  They must have outgrown them but, not me, I’m still immature enough to get excited about them every time!  This one is Pick Up The Phone, there are a couple of versions of it kicking around and it’s my ringtone…great when it goes off somewhere inappropriate.

Track 14 – FFS. Another one I know, but can’t place. Lovely though.
Aye, like this one, it’s Lloyd Cole and Woman in a Bar.  A simple, beautiful song.

Track 15 – No idea about his one. “come pick me up, take me out, fuck me up, steal my records, screw all my friends” Nice sentiments. Great track though.
This guy is big news in some quarters but, this is the only track of his I knowingly possess and have always meant to check out more of his stuff but fear disappointment.  It’s Ryan Adams and Come Pick Me Up.  Bitter, Ryan?  Probably.

Track 16 – The wonderful Buck 65/Blood of a young Wolf. Fantastic.
Agreed, difficult to choose just one song from this album to put in the mix.

Track 17 – The other track on the CD that didn’t quite ‘do it’ for me.
Ah well, can’t win ‘em all.  This is Twisterella by Ride and, listening back, doesn’t sit brilliantly in the mix after all.  Included it after a night of listening to lots of 90’s guff so, this was just one of a number of possibilities from that night for inclusion.
 
Track 18 – Is this British Sea Power? Can’t place the track.
Sure is, BSP and the track is Bear off the Zeus E.P.  Excellent live but, a while since I‘ve heard them play it.  Had the happy coincidence this week of being in Nottingham for work, having to call into Sheffield on the way home to collect my missus’ new car and, as luck would have it, BSP were on at the Picturedome in Holmfirth…no Bear though.

Track 19 – Splendour in the grass. No idea who this version is by though. Familiar again.
This is the only version I know of this particular Splendor in the Grass.  It’s by The Ladybug Transistor.  This bloke, Gary Olson, has an excellent voice.  Got into them through the Track & Field label where many of the musicians were in several bands (Essex Green, Finishing School, etc.) and closely linked with the Elephant 6 Collective (Neutral Milk Hotel, et al).  The Pink Martini song Splendour in the Grass is a completely different song, right?

Track 20 – Ethereal, fragile voice. Lovely, but no idea.
I think I heard Gideon Coe play this maybe a year ago and I went and bought the movie soundtrack, by Elliot Goldenthal, off the back of it.  The movie is In Dreams (1999) and this track is called Dream Baby and sung by, none other than, Elizabeth Fraser.  I’ve never seen the film.

Track 21 – and we end with a 9 second track, as per the interludes. Perfect.
Comma, Comma, Comma, Full Stop by Brakes.  What better way to finish.  The thing about Brakes is, as entertaining as these short ditties are, it’s not even the best thing about them.  The albums are full of great, full length songs…you won’t be disappointed (go chronologically, Give Blood, Beatific Visions and Touchdown.  There’s also a live album that I don’t currently have, Rock Is Dodelijk).

Enjoyed putting this one together although, a couple of factors combined to make it less than perfect, i.e. the aforesaid cock-up at Track 6 and ran out of space and had to remove the 40-second Brakes track “Hi, How Are You?” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dDn5BwB9adA

Apologies also for failing to include an explicit language warning on the packaging…there were a few sweary tracks you wouldn’t want the kids to catch (says the guy who had a car full of 15-year old girls when Aidan Moffatt’s “Cunts” decided to make an appearance on shuffle).

Review of my mix tape.

1. Ivor Cutler discussing breasts, a great fondness of mine; Ivor Cutler that is.

yes, a great fondleness indeed, if your breasts.

2. Some electronica – its ok

it's better than ok, it's aaaaaalriiiight! susuma yokota's genshi. gav broon once said that my attempts at looping could’ve been influenced by this guy, and promptly gave me some sort of best of.

3. Strange piece of music with odd / out of tune Scandinavian sounding vocals.

this is holger czukay's "good morning story". in a different song you'll hear him ask "the invisible man - is he here?" at which point i have gav broon's voice in my ear saying "the invisible man - has he farted?"

4. Slightly kookie female vocal.  its ok.

jane weaver "like an aspen leaf". she's ace is jane weaver.

5. I don’t get this church music thing.

whit?! gavin bryars with the latvian radio choir - listen as hard as you like, you'll not hear kate bush in amongst it all.

Glad those three are over not my cup of tea.

6. Ah rock music, guitars etc. I’m feeling more comfortable.

the viking giant show, from iceland, and still recognised as pop stars all over their island south of the arctic circle, north of the blue lagoon. okay, in reykjavik.

7. From the National’s latest output. The Knitnurse has an obsession with Matt Berringer and I been taken to see them several times. They are annoyingly good.

spot on - they put their best song right at the front of their newest album just for the downloading generation.

8. The wonderful Mark Linkous. of Sparklehorse. A great loss.

yup, "spirit ditch". sob.

9. Nice bit of new /alt country. First one I wanted to know who it is.

lonepigeon.

10. Some fiddle music. My guess it’s American and young. The playing is too quick to be British. Bet I’m totally wrong. Good though.

this is by saltfish forty from scotland.

11. Lovely piano intro. Reminded me of a Sandy Denny track. It’s good

jo foster's coming to get you.
 
12. I know and like these guys. Remind me.

stephen merrit, from the eban and charlie soundtrack. i don't like this track at all, nor anything else by stephen merrit.

13. That was nice intro and now we’re into the Shipping Forecast. My first response it must be the exceptionally annoying Public Service Broadcasting but then I have in my mind it may be River of Slime in which case it’s a masterpiece.

it is a masterpiece by neither of those acts - joppers once came to me with an idea to have an instrumental piece played over the shipping forecast. i said hold on, it's been done in the 80s by tears for fears. that's the everybody wants to rule the world riff in there.

14. Ivor to finish, lovely.

even keel i think?

If we are looking at this analytically it scored 11 out 14 or a 78% success rate.
As a mix tape it worked well except that strange 3 track interlude.

My initial thoughts to the identity of the mixer where breasts at the beginning followed by something electronic it must be Funky. But the National track made  me think again.

So thanks to my mixer. I do enjoy receiving them.

Review of my mix tape.

1. Ivor Cutler discussing breasts, a great fondness of mine; Ivor Cutler that is.

yes, a great fondleness indeed, if your breasts.

2. Some electronica – its ok

it's better than ok, it's aaaaaalriiiight! susuma yokota's genshi. gav broon once said that my attempts at looping could’ve been influenced by this guy, and promptly gave me some sort of best of.

3. Strange piece of music with odd / out of tune Scandinavian sounding vocals.

this is holger czukay's "good morning story". in a different song you'll hear him ask "the invisible man - is he here?" at which point i have gav broon's voice in my ear saying "the invisible man - has he farted?"

4. Slightly kookie female vocal.  its ok.

jane weaver "like an aspen leaf". she's ace is jane weaver.

5. I don’t get this church music thing.

whit?! gavin bryars with the latvian radio choir - listen as hard as you like, you'll not hear kate bush in amongst it all.

Glad those three are over not my cup of tea.

6. Ah rock music, guitars etc. I’m feeling more comfortable.

the viking giant show, from iceland, and still recognised as pop stars all over their island south of the arctic circle, north of the blue lagoon. okay, in reykjavik.

7. From the National’s latest output. The Knitnurse has an obsession with Matt Berringer and I been taken to see them several times. They are annoyingly good.

spot on - they put their best song right at the front of their newest album just for the downloading generation.

8. The wonderful Mark Linkous. of Sparklehorse. A great loss.

yup, "spirit ditch". sob.

9. Nice bit of new /alt country. First one I wanted to know who it is.

lonepigeon.

10. Some fiddle music. My guess it’s American and young. The playing is too quick to be British. Bet I’m totally wrong. Good though.

this is by saltfish forty from scotland.

11. Lovely piano intro. Reminded me of a Sandy Denny track. It’s good

jo foster's coming to get you.
 
12. I know and like these guys. Remind me.

stephen merrit, from the eban and charlie soundtrack. i don't like this track at all, nor anything else by stephen merrit.

13. That was nice intro and now we’re into the Shipping Forecast. My first response it must be the exceptionally annoying Public Service Broadcasting but then I have in my mind it may be River of Slime in which case it’s a masterpiece.

it is a masterpiece by neither of those acts - joppers once came to me with an idea to have an instrumental piece played over the shipping forecast. i said hold on, it's been done in the 80s by tears for fears. that's the everybody wants to rule the world riff in there.

14. Ivor to finish, lovely.

even keel i think?

If we are looking at this analytically it scored 11 out 14 or a 78% success rate.
As a mix tape it worked well except that strange 3 track interlude.

My initial thoughts to the identity of the mixer where breasts at the beginning followed by something electronic it must be Funky. But the National track made  me think again.

So thanks to my mixer. I do enjoy receiving them.

Thanks KC, Leckers beat me to my one question.
Looking forward to Jo Foster twice next week.

Got my CD from the mysterious Mr Fly, complete with large illustration of a fly in scratchy pen. Nice.  Don't know who any of them are by.  Been living in that shack too long.

1. Beautiful. bird noises with french language lessons over some brazilian jazz chords with vibes, steel drums, all manner of things. Dissonant percussive ending to stop you chillin' too much.

2.  African music - soweto-like sound, very good.

3. Really like this, great vocals with added whoops and hooch's and a fine song.

4. This is odd. It's like the Isley Brothers produced by Isaac Hayes, starting to like this too.

5. Like this one - slow and haunting. Good vocals again, mournful in style.

6. Percussive funky thang. Vocals too smooth for me and just too much going on.

7. This is very good. As if an english folk singer was turning her hand to indie music. Lovely

8. Don't fancy this one very much. It's a bog standard slow bluesy backing track with lyrics about the uk, advertising, retail, horses,electricity.  Bluesies should be about your baby putting broken bottles in your pillow. too ponderous.

9. Like this a lot. I think I know the voice.  Like a monkey in a zoo - I presume thats what its called. 

10. Wasn't mad about this to begin with but it's another slow-burner. Really enjoying it now.  You cant beat the old cowboy music eh? Complete with yodels. Is the singer English again?

11. This ones hard going.  It would be on a Coen brothers film if they did tragedies. Voice only,  a bit depressing.

12. A blacksmith courted me.  Old traditional, the female singer has a good voice but I don't like the fusion with jazzy funky bits. I'm not a fan of fusion of any kind. Must be my calvinist upbringing. But it's ok

13. Cycle of Violence?  This is the only one which has no saving graces. I hate the vocal style, the backing vocals, the lyrics, the merciless up-tempo beat. It's only 3 minutes but seems much longer. It's like Haircut 100 go Heavy.

14. This is good, liverpudlian punky.  Eighties style but later I suppose.

15.  This is a remake of Wreckless Eric's "I'd go the whole wide world" but without the cute vocals, like   just to foinnd her, and taw-haieetee  which make the original ace. It's ok but I can't see the point of it.

16. Like this a lot too.  Sounds very like Kevin Ayers singing on a Lou Reed backing track. In fact it's uncannily like Ayers, but It's probably not.  Ends the CD nicely singing Byebye and Thank You Very Much.

Mr Fly clearly likes laid back music and crossover styles.  All in all a good mix with some sleepers that you start to like after a few plays- the best type.  Once I scratch out the haircut 100 song from the cd with a screwdriver, I'll be playing it regularly.

1. Beautiful. bird noises with french language lessons over some brazilian jazz chords with vibes, steel drums, all manner of things. Dissonant percussive ending to stop you chillin' too much.

A Japanese percussionist called Ichi who wowed the crowds at Homegame a couple of years ago

2.  African music - soweto-like sound, very good.

Modeste from Madagasgcar

3. Really like this, great vocals with added whoops and hooch's and a fine song.

Phospherescence. It came out at the end of last year. Good ain't it

4. This is odd. It's like the Isley Brothers produced by Isaac Hayes, starting to like this too.

It's Lambchop from the album NIxon. Ever home should have this record, even a shack in the woods.

5. Like this one - slow and haunting. Good vocals again, mournful in style.

Its Beck from his new record.

6. Percussive funky thang. Vocals too smooth for me and just too much going on.

Iron and Wine

7. This is very good. As if an english folk singer was turning her hand to indie music. Lovely

She's actually Australian and has had some stuff released on Fence. It's from a Shivers album and the singer is Jo Shornikov ( possible spelling ). Her solo stuff is well worth checking out.

8. Don't fancy this one very much. It's a bog standard slow bluesy backing track with lyrics about the uk, advertising, retail, horses,electricity.  Bluesies should be about your baby putting broken bottles in your pillow. too ponderous.

Denis Jones. Great live

9. Like this a lot. I think I know the voice.  Like a monkey in a zoo - I presume thats what its called. 

Some bloke called James Yorkston singing the wonderful Daniel Johnston. It comes form an EP of about six songs three by James and three by Adrian Crowley. Available form Chemical Underground.

10. Wasn't mad about this to begin with but it's another slow-burner. Really enjoying it now.  You cant beat the old cowboy music eh? Complete with yodels. Is the singer English again?

I first heard Sam Amidon on a Fence mix club tape. I think I now have his complete works.


11. This ones hard going.  It would be on a Coen brothers film if they did tragedies. Voice only,  a bit depressing.

I put it on because Sam Amidon cites it as a major influence. It's Cordelias Dad from Boston.

12. A blacksmith courted me.  Old traditional, the female singer has a good voice but I don't like the fusion with jazzy funky bits. I'm not a fan of fusion of any kind. Must be my calvinist upbringing. But it's ok

The words greatest bass player Jah Wobble trying his hand at folk music.

13. Cycle of Violence?  This is the only one which has no saving graces. I hate the vocal style, the backing vocals, the lyrics, the merciless up-tempo beat. It's only 3 minutes but seems much longer. It's like Haircut 100 go Heavy.

So you don't like Gruff Rhys kindly leave the hub.

14. This is good, liverpudlian punky.  Eighties style but later I suppose.

Everthing in life i've learnt from Half Man Half Biscuit

15.  This is a remake of Wreckless Eric's "I'd go the whole wide world" but without the cute vocals, like   just to foinnd her, and taw-haieetee  which make the original ace. It's ok but I can't see the point of it.

Meursault made a record of covers to finance their trip to Austin this year. I consider Wreckless Eric to be the godfather of Low Fi.

16. Like this a lot too.  Sounds very like Kevin Ayers singing on a Lou Reed backing track. In fact it's uncannily like Ayers, but It's probably not.  Ends the CD nicely singing Byebye and Thank You Very Much.

It is the wonderful Kevin Ayers. I've just got the 5 CD box set and working my way through it.



Mr Fly clearly likes laid back music and crossover styles.  All in all a good mix with some sleepers that you start to like after a few plays- the best type. 

My kids describe my musical taste as being Stoner Rock.

Once I scratch out the haircut 100 song from the cd with a screwdriver, I'll be playing it regularly.

Glad you enjoyed most of it.

My disc arrived reet prompt, likes, unlike my review.
 
Simply entitled 'Hubba Hubha!', here is what I made of it.

01 - Some sort of home recording(?)…an outdoors market scene with some traders plying their wares amid everyday hustle & bustle.

02 - Another interlude, with saxophone, cutting to a concierge type talking about Ronnie Scott's club…

03 - Nice wee piano tune, reminded me of the Hamlet cigars ad music. No idea who it could be.

04 - Another piano-y thing, this time with a jazz chanteuse singing…reminded me of a female Thom Yorke, in a way. Nae idea!

05 - Street recording/interlude again...with a saxophone off in the distance. I'm guessing jazz is a big part of my mixer's make up?

06 - Now this I do know…Billy Bragg's Handy Man. Lovely wee tune, great video to boot.

07 - Bit of gender confusion here for me…I thought it was Nina Simone to start with, but it's possibly a guy?! I liked how this one started...the track skips a bit, the mixer stops it after 20-odd seconds and just re-starts the tune again. DJ No Compromise inda house!

08 - Am certain this is Mr Roddy Frame, singing about some "western skies"? Always loved his voice, bought Oblivious on 7" when I was about thirteen…one of my fave tunes ever. Nice.

09 - Another interlude…really like this one, reminiscent of The KLF's Chill Out for me…some chaps in a car, skipping through radio stations. "I hate this song….gimme a break…this one's even worse…" I get the feeling the mixer was being self-deprecating here…a little post-modern nod to the trials and tribulations of mixing…or reviewing? Anyway, keen to know who this is.

10 - Some Americana(?) I have no idea about…not keen on the voice, I have to say, though the tune is pleasant enough.

11 - Again, no idea here…possibly something Fence-esque? Acoustic guitar and harmonica…had a wee hunch it was yon Jah Perkins but, if memory serves, his voice is a bit gruffer…

12 - Aaaah, Herman Dune. Or maybe David-Ivar on his tod? Nah, reckon it's the Hermans. Seen them live twice and they're just fab. Don't have all their stuff though, so no idea as to the track…

13 - Some kinda Deep South, hoe-down action…banjo and harmonica and talk of rattlesnakes….no idea who. Only track I would say is 100% not my thing on this here mix, sorry.

14 - Yet another newie on me…really liked the looping, twinkly backing track, just felt that the voice detracted from it…the melodic twinkles sound like they're sampled from 'On' by Aphex Twin, which would be nae bad thing. Will be interesting to hear who though, nice production on this.

15 - The Boss. 57 Channels.

16 - Another wee interlude thingy…sounds like a home recording made on the London Underground…"the Victoria Line is now closed" being the giveaway. Liking these a lot. They'd be great for DJing with, if they're available on an LP.

17 - This is a long 'un…electronic-ish in parts, reminiscent of Air in others. Made me think of Gerry Rafferty, owing to the way the synths were deployed...like a synth Baker Street without the bombast…gotta be Vangelis...maybe?

18 - A second epic, long track…made me think of something off of the Ninja Tune label, with a hint of late Talk Talk about it. Clueless as to who…I like this.

19 - A cover of When Doves Cry…I've got versions of this by Patti Smith and Ginuwine, but it's neither of those, so…argh…
I have heard this one before. It's good.

20 - This has to be The Goons…doesn't it? That's definitely Spike Milligan gibbering over some honky-tonk/Vaudevillian piano. Nice ending!

Took a few listens to worm its way into ma heid, but all in all it was an interesting listen and there are probably two or three tracks I'll get around to acquiring. It's good to get a mix where you know hardly anything, surprises are good. A success, then.

Cheers HubHa!

01 - Some sort of home recording(?)…an outdoors market scene with some traders plying their wares amid everyday hustle & bustle.

I found a field recording site which has some nice clips to use in mixes.

02 - Another interlude, with saxophone, cutting to a concierge type talking about Ronnie Scott's club…

The concierge & saxaphone player is Ronnie Scitt himself a man I was always miss.

03 - Nice wee piano tune, reminded me of the Hamlet cigars ad music. No idea who it could be.

This is Vassilis Tsabropoulos's track called "Hymn I (Axion Estie) from his CD "Akroasis"

04 - Another piano-y thing, this time with a jazz chanteuse singing…reminded me of a female Thom Yorke, in a way. Nae idea!

I saw this artist at a free gig in the Union chapel she was on the same line up us Seamus Fogarty and I liked her style
artist is Seaming from the LP of the same name "where is my thermometer"

05 - Street recording/interlude again...with a saxophone off in the distance. I'm guessing jazz is a big part of my mixer's make up?

Ah yes I have thousands of Jazz LP's this recoding is from Soho in 2008

06 - Now this I do know…Billy Bragg's Handy Man. Lovely wee tune, great video to boot.

Aye great song that

07 - Bit of gender confusion here for me…I thought it was Nina Simone to start with, but it's possibly a guy?! I liked how this one started...the track skips a bit, the mixer stops it after 20-odd seconds and just re-starts the tune again. DJ No Compromise inda house!

This is super rare and I nicked it off youtube it would be nice if they re-released it
"Blood of an American" by Bobby Wright

08 - Am certain this is Mr Roddy Frame, singing about some "western skies"? Always loved his voice, bought Oblivious on 7" when I was about thirteen…one of my fave tunes ever. Nice.

Yes Mr Frame from the LP "Western Skies"

09 - Another interlude…really like this one, reminiscent of The KLF's Chill Out for me…some chaps in a car, skipping through radio stations. "I hate this song….gimme a break…this one's even worse…" I get the feeling the mixer was being self-deprecating here…a little post-modern nod to the trials and tribulations of mixing…or reviewing? Anyway, keen to know who this is.

10 - Some Americana(?) I have no idea about…not keen on the voice, I have to say, though the tune is pleasant enough.

Both tracks 9 & 10 are by Richardmond Fontaine
9 is "Driving Back to the chainsaw sea" No hidden meanings here I just like it
10 is "Incident At Conklin Creek"

11 - Again, no idea here…possibly something Fence-esque? Acoustic guitar and harmonica…had a wee hunch it was yon Jah Perkins but, if memory serves, his voice is a bit gruffer…

This is Stephen Fretwell "Yes she came round yesterday" from his "8 Songs" 10 inch

12 - Aaaah, Herman Dune. Or maybe David-Ivar on his tod? Nah, reckon it's the Hermans. Seen them live twice and they're just fab. Don't have all their stuff though, so no idea as to the track…

I've seen them once in The Lexington last year do like their voice
from their RSD 2013 EP

13 - Some kinda Deep South, hoe-down action…banjo and harmonica and talk of rattlesnakes….no idea who. Only track I would say is 100% not my thing on this here mix, sorry.

No worries that's Charlie Parr's "Rattlesnake"

14 - Yet another newie on me…really liked the looping, twinkly backing track, just felt that the voice detracted from it…the melodic twinkles sound like they're sampled from 'On' by Aphex Twin, which would be nae bad thing. Will be interesting to hear who though, nice production on this.

"Six space shuttles and 144,000 Elephants" by Lonnie Holley

15 - The Boss. 57 Channels.

Yes only heard this for the first time this year luv it

16 - Another wee interlude thingy…sounds like a home recording made on the London Underground…"the Victoria Line is now closed" being the giveaway. Liking these a lot. They'd be great for DJing with, if they're available on an LP.

"Mind the gap" they come from here http://www.soundsurvey.org.uk/

17 - This is a long 'un…electronic-ish in parts, reminiscent of Air in others. Made me think of Gerry Rafferty, owing to the way the synths were deployed...like a synth Baker Street without the bombast…gotta be Vangelis...maybe?

"Are you going with me?" Pat Metheney Group I actually prefer the live version but didnt have that on mp3 for this mix.

18 - A second epic, long track…made me think of something off of the Ninja Tune label, with a hint of late Talk Talk about it. Clueless as to who…I like this.

"Floating Test" by Hejira & Floating Points, I get most of Floating Points releases as I like his layed back electronica style


19 - A cover of When Doves Cry…I've got versions of this by Patti Smith and Ginuwine, but it's neither of those, so…argh…
I have heard this one before. It's good.

Its by Barbarossa from a Rough Trade only EP that came with his LP last year.

20 - This has to be The Goons…doesn't it? That's definitely Spike Milligan gibbering over some honky-tonk/Vaudevillian piano. Nice ending!


Spike playing and singing the theme to Q5

Glad u liked the mix in the mists of time I think I have done a mix for u before

Took a few listens to worm its way into ma heid, but all in all it was an interesting listen and there are probably two or three tracks I'll get around to acquiring. It's good to get a mix where you know hardly anything, surprises are good. A success, then.

Apologies to my mixee for the lack of a revue so far - despite hoping to have used the weekend to get something together, I've still not had any time to give it a proper listen yet and now I'm off to Manchester on business for a few days.

Hopefully over the Easter weekend... Sorry.

Just back from a week in Cyprus, so before the end of the week I will review an unlit match.

ish.
Title: Re: club de mix revue
Post by: Deegers on Wed, Apr 16, 2014, 20:12 PM
Sorry again for the delay in pulling this together.  So I received a very well balanced and sequenced mix that played very strongly to my tastes and was mixed down into a single track.  I like this, do it myself as it ensures that the listener has to stick with it rather than reach for the skip button.

Nice job mixmaster.  I have listened to this 5 times in a row today.

1.   We start with a sample of found sound taken from a record which must be very dirty as there is a warning that what will follow could be offensive and of a very strong adult nature.
2.   I feel as though I should know track two, it is somewhere between the chill out and lazy trip hop ala DJ Shadow but without the beats.  It reminds me of Bent or Fila Brazilia.  Probably kick myself on the reveal. 
3.   After repeated listens I am convinced that this is Future Islands.  I have only heard Future Islands through the letterman video that is viral on the web but his voice sounds like that on this track.  Like the way that this builds from gentle to very angry.  I can visualize the singer doing the david brent dance in my head as it plays through getting more and more agitated as it progresses.
4.   Shift gears again back to an ambientesque track, not too dissimilar from track 1, lots of nice electronics and a trippy beat.  Like this but no idea as to who it is.
5.   Nuggets sounding intro to track 5, funky hammonds and that sixties sounding guitar, vocals kick in and this is either a 60’s tune or a very good pastiche of the 60’s nuggets sound.  It’s all psychedelic, bright colours and what I am convinced is an electric sitar.
6.   Which merges into a further rock and roll track, which sequences very well from the preceding track.  Despite this track being about sending the blues away it’s all very summery and vibrant.  Very nice selection.
7.   Which gives way to my favourite track so far, the stunning re-interpretation of the Wurzels Cider Drinker by British Sea Power.  This song makes me think of Bhoywonder on two levels, firstly, bhoy loves Lows little drummer bhoy and this is the perfect bookend to that and secondly bhoys real name is McWurzel and he drinks cider, but not from Devon, he doesn’t like Devon, makes me wonder why he lives so close to it?
8.   Lovely track this one downbeat, melancholic dreamy female vocals, really nice flow to the sequencing on this mix.  I think I will send it onto Sedjetski as a lesson in how to do it.  Where is Sedjetski anyway?
9.   Nice transition mix master into the Animal Collective with My Girl, I think.  From the doominess of melancholy into the upbeat danceability of this track.  Makes you want to get up and dance around the room.
10.   This sounds like Siouxsie Sioux, sparse electronics and percussion providing the backing to this one. 
11.   Which fades out to the wee man talking again about Douche bags this time, flavoured douche bags, suited to individual needs.
12.   Out he goes and in comes another low tempo chill outesque track.  Again very much in the vein of bent and Fila Brazilia, nice work, like this one ascending and descending melodic notes but with with twinges of prog running through it in the guitar, sounds like Dave Gilmour.
13.   Shift gears again to a number which sounds all old school 4AD, womans voice with just an electric guitar for accompaniment.  Like!  Then it becomes all expansive with big strings and ethereal effects before drawing back into itself at the finish.
14.   Another nice transition and we are all shuffling percussion and drones but a not overly inspiring vocal nice enough but the weakest track in the mix so far.
15.   But we are back on track with the next track in the mix, starts with a worldly feel, reminds me of thon French bhoy, Francois but its not, building and building with a choppy guitar sound to the saxaphones with a riff that I am sure that I know from somewhere else.
16.   Another stellar transitions and we are back into textured electronica territory, I think I have this but not sure what it is.  Building nicely, claps and then a real shift of gears and I am not sure whether we have moved onto a different track here but this would fit in very nicely on those disco not disco compilations, a most excellent groove with heavily echoed female vocals.  I am digging this.  Synthpop I think would be the genre, it’s a mash up of eurythmics, school of seven bells with ethereal cocteauesque vocals.
17.   Have I complimented you on the sequencing and transitions between the tracks yet?  I got quite excited when this one started, I wondered if it was going to be a mix of Rez that I hadn’t heard before, it’s is very underworldish in places but it isn’t them, that pulsing synth wash on this is brilliant, a most excellent track to finish with.

So, that was my mix, one track, 1 hour and 15 mins long and to my reckoning 15 musical tracks.  Very impressed and a keeper, I can sense some investigation coming on once the reveal is shared.

  Where is Sedjetski anyway?

Sedgjetski and Reg Banks have never been seen in the same room together.... just saying

Actually they are in the same room today.
Deegers send me the mix for my education.

You will be pleased to know that whilst the flow wasn't good, I have used a number of the tracks on other mixes.

Sorry again for the delay in pulling this together.  So I received a very well balanced and sequenced mix that played very strongly to my tastes and was mixed down into a single track.  I like this, do it myself as it ensures that the listener has to stick with it rather than reach for the skip button.

Nice job mixmaster.  I have listened to this 5 times in a row today.

Wow…nice one. T’was my pleasure!

1.   We start with a sample of found sound taken from a record which must be very dirty as there is a warning that what will follow could be offensive and of a very strong adult nature.

This is from the Pent-R Books documentary ‘Sexual Pleasures’…there are (very scarce) promo LPs of this out there, so wanna get one…a perfect curveball for DJing with!

2.   I feel as though I should know track two, it is somewhere between the chill out and lazy trip hop ala DJ Shadow but without the beats.  It reminds me of Bent or Fila Brazilia.  Probably kick myself on the reveal.

It’s the lovely ‘Guadelope’ by Roll The Dice. I got into them through their production work for Fever Ray.

3.   After repeated listens I am convinced that this is Future Islands.  I have only heard Future Islands through the letterman video that is viral on the web but his voice sounds like that on this track.  Like the way that this builds from gentle to very angry.  I can visualize the singer doing the david brent dance in my head as it plays through getting more and more agitated as it progresses.

Hah...nah...this is Norwich’s super Death of Death of Discotheque, with ‘Broken Laptop’. The singer Roz is a good friend of mine and I got to hear her/them do this live once…almost brought a tear to my eye, such a stunning track and vocal.

4.   Shift gears again back to an ambientesque track, not too dissimilar from track 1, lots of nice electronics and a trippy beat.  Like this but no idea as to who it is.

The mighty Boards of Canada with ‘The Beach At Redpoint’. There are no words.

5.   Nuggets sounding intro to track 5, funky hammonds and that sixties sounding guitar, vocals kick in and this is either a 60’s tune or a very good pastiche of the 60’s nuggets sound.  It’s all psychedelic, bright colours and what I am convinced is an electric sitar.

King Gizzard & The Lizard Wizard with (half of) the title track from their ‘Float Along – Fill Your Lungs’ LP. Found out about these psyche-y Aussies when I was out in Perth earlier this year…managed to bag the vinyl before it sold out. Derivative as hell, but great fun wi’ it!

6.   Which merges into a further rock and roll track, which sequences very well from the preceding track.  Despite this track being about sending the blues away it’s all very summery and vibrant.  Very nice selection.

Another amazing Aussie act…a 5 piece from Melbourne called Beaches. This is from their heavily-indebted-to-shoegaze ‘She Beats’ LP. Tis a great LP, this track ‘Send Them Away’ is probably my highlight from it.

7.   Which gives way to my favourite track so far, the stunning re-interpretation of the Wurzels Cider Drinker by British Sea Power.  This song makes me think of Bhoywonder on two levels, firstly, bhoy loves Lows little drummer bhoy and this is the perfect bookend to that and secondly bhoys real name is McWurzel and he drinks cider, but not from Devon, he doesn’t like Devon, makes me wonder why he lives so close to it?

Yeah, I’m a hardcore cover whore and this totally blew me away. Was delighted to find out it exists on a 7” too…an essential purchase.


8.   Lovely track this one downbeat, melancholic dreamy female vocals, really nice flow to the sequencing on this mix.  I think I will send it onto Sedjetski as a lesson in how to do it.  Where is Sedjetski anyway?

This is Broadcast with ‘Echo’s Answer’. It’s a damn shame we won’t be hearing much more from Trish Keenan, other than the last vocals she recorded, which are apparently going to come out sometime soon.

9.   Nice transition mix master into the Animal Collective with My Girl, I think.  From the doominess of melancholy into the upbeat danceability of this track.  Makes you want to get up and dance around the room.

I was rather chuffed with some of my blends, like this one…I cannae be ersed learning to beatmix, so this is how I get my DJ kicks! It’s Tears For Fears covering ‘My Girls’, and it’s out on nice wee 10” for RSD…

10.   This sounds like Siouxsie Sioux, sparse electronics and percussion providing the backing to this one. 

Sweden’s finest musical siblings, The Knife. Track is ‘Without You My Life Would Be Boring’ from Shaking The Habitual. This was stunning to hear live…I’m pretty obsessed with Karin Dreijer Andersson’s voice, it has to be said...

11.   Which fades out to the wee man talking again about Douche bags this time, flavoured douche bags, suited to individual needs.

Aye, The Knife was a tough act to mix out of/follow, so some more Sexual spoken word saved the day. Puerile, but fun. I hope.

12.   Out he goes and in comes another low tempo chill outesque track.  Again very much in the vein of bent and Fila Brazilia, nice work, like this one ascending and descending melodic notes but with with twinges of prog running through it in the guitar, sounds like Dave Gilmour.

This is a pal from Norwich remixing some other pals from Norwich. Luke Abbott’s stunning remix of Transept’s ‘Leopard Slug Love Song’. It’s the perfect ad for both Abbott and Transept…progtronica or summat.

13.   Shift gears again to a number which sounds all old school 4AD, womans voice with just an electric guitar for accompaniment.  Like!  Then it becomes all expansive with big strings and ethereal effects before drawing back into itself at the finish.

Scout Niblett’s amazing ‘Can’t Fool Me Now’, from her last LP. I must have listened to this a hundred times or more...so, so beautiful.

14.   Another nice transition and we are all shuffling percussion and drones but a not overly inspiring vocal nice enough but the weakest track in the mix so far.

Grumbling Fur with ‘The Ballad of Roy Batty’. I just love how they’ve taken Rutger Hauer’s “tears in the rain” speech from Blade Runner and made it into a dreamy, drone-y wonder. Cannae win them all!

15.   But we are back on track with the next track in the mix, starts with a worldly feel, reminds me of thon French bhoy, Francois but its not, building and building with a choppy guitar sound to the saxaphones with a riff that I am sure that I know from somewhere else.

This is ‘The Caterpillar’s Intervention’ by (James) Holden, from The Inheritors LP. Fantastic, stomping tune.

16.   Another stellar transitions and we are back into textured electronica territory, I think I have this but not sure what it is.  Building nicely, claps and then a real shift of gears and I am not sure whether we have moved onto a different track here but this would fit in very nicely on those disco not disco compilations, a most excellent groove with heavily echoed female vocals.  I am digging this.  Synthpop I think would be the genre, it’s a mash up of eurythmics, school of seven bells with ethereal cocteauesque vocals.

‘Your Loft My Acid’ by Death In Vegas…wanted to end on an up note or two, and this dreamy beauty goes so weel with Holden…speaking of which…

17.   Have I complimented you on the sequencing and transitions between the tracks yet?  I got quite excited when this one started, I wondered if it was going to be a mix of Rez that I hadn’t heard before, it’s is very underworldish in places but it isn’t them, that pulsing synth wash on this is brilliant, a most excellent track to finish with.

…I couldnae choose between the two, so stuck another Holden one in…my fave track from his LP, probably, this is called ‘Blackpool Late Eighties’.

So, that was my mix, one track, 1 hour and 15 mins long and to my reckoning 15 musical tracks.  Very impressed and a keeper, I can sense some investigation coming on once the reveal is shared.

Thanks for all the kind words…I do spend a ridiculous amount of time on me mixes, seeing what works best ‘in the blend’.
I had to leave some corkers out too, as it just ruined the flow. Ye know how it goes!

Glad you liked it, was great fun to put together.

Sincere apologies to my mixer - promise I'll listen lots and post a review anon - just I've a bunch of other day-job album reviews to see off first  :-*
Title: Re: club de mix revue
Post by: Rusticbob on Fri, Apr 25, 2014, 18:35 PM
OK, so my mix arrived all the way from North Carolina, and features a fair amount of americana, so I’d bet my best Sunday shirt on this being from Uncle E. 

Sorry about the delay in the review – was listening to it in the car with the kids a couple of weeks ago, but ended hitting the pause once the full force swearing kicked in.  They're “street” but they’re not that “street”. Finally managed to get some time to listen to it all the way through…so here goes…

Track 1:  Mellow country-tinged pleasantness. “It’s been a long hot summer with not a drop of rain.”  No idea what that feels like, but it sounds nice.
 
Track 2: Another slice of mellow country-ness – but with a lady singing this time.

Track 3: is all about Northern California Girls.  They sound nice.  And so does Track 3 – I’m liking this.

Track 4: is also keeper – it’s about Benny and the Jets, but it’s not “Benny and the Jets”.  Nice backing.  Lots of noise.

Track 5:  Again no idea who this is.  Got a sort of Byrds-ey sound to it, but it’s not the Byrds.  More recent.  Really like this one too..   

Track 6: Nope – no clue again.  Has a sort of early Mercury Rev feel to the vocal.
 
Track 7: I know one!  It’s the Beach Boys doing Do It Again.  Haven’t heard this for ages.  Lovely.

Track 8: Another great song, and another one I don’t know. Nice song about Shadow People, with a highly irresponsible lyric about smoking.  Tut tut.  Had to explain that one to the kids.

Track 9 is a proper rock song with some proper rock vocals and at least two proper rock guitar solos. 
 
Track 10 is ace.  Is this Neutral Milk Hotel?  I’m pretty certain it’s the guy from Neutral Milk Hotel singing.  Great stuff.

Track 11 is DEFINITELY Neutral Milk Hotel – from the Aeroplanes / Sea album.  Also great.

Track 12 sounds a bit like the Levellers putting on American accents.  But that can’t be right.  Did the Levellers sing in American accents?

Track 13 is a live thing.  Again no idea who.  Irishy folky flavour though. 

Track 14 has a reggae beat, and a female soul vocal.  True love is hard to find.  Indeed.

Track 15 – throaty vocals and a country backing.  Singing about Stone blind love. 

Track 16 has a wee bit of a Neil Young feel to it, but it’s not Neil Young.  Nice song.

Track 17 something from the 70’s?  Again, a new one on me.

Track 18 is another mellow, mournful country-style song with a female vocal. 

Track 19 is a potty-mouthed country anthem.  Lots of choice swearing, so this is where it got paused to protect the innocent – and I was minutes from the finish line...

Just as well though, as Track 20 is more country filth.  When did country music get so dirty? 

..and that’s the end.  Thank you!  I enjoyed that – a lot from a genre that I don’t listen to much, but some great songs on there.  Looking forward to the reveal, will definitely be tracking down a bunch of those.

Thanks, mixee – appreciate it!

First of all this was a brilliant CD and I think It’s from Czefski. The only reason I think that is on one of the listening posts, he was listening to 3 of the albums that have tracks on here.

1.   The Aliens. Magic Man. A great song from Luna, which I think is a brilliant album. This being the first song, made me think that this Hub-Mix was going to be easy. How wrong was I!

2.   The Little Kicks. Girl. Don’t know anything about this group but really like this song. Will check out their other stuff.

3.   St Vincent. Digital witness. Don’t particularly like this, but is growing slightly, but only slightly.

4.   Miaoux Miaoux. Stop the clock. Brilliant song. Saw them “headlining” at last year’s Brew on the Bog. They didn’t strictly headline but were on last. Didn’t bother with the album as wasn’t sure I’d like them on CD as opposed to live. I have bought it now and think this is by far the best track.

5.   I feel I should definitely know this but I can’t place it. I think I’ll kick myself when I find out. Like it a lot though.

6.   Again another one that I don’t know but think I should. Enlighten me and I’ll check her out further.

7.   Damien Dempsey. Serious. I’d never heard of him and only found the name of the track by typing what I thought was the title into Google. Don’t know if that’s cheating but I found out a lot of the songs this way. I like the song and will probably buy a few of his albums.

8.   Sinead O’Connor. Old Lady. Haven’t listened to anything by her except as background music on the radio. This has made me realise what a great voice she has. So had to buy a couple of her albums.

9.   Charles Latham. Living wage. Have this on a free Toad Session download and think I’ll have to buy some of his stuff. Wished I’d managed to see him and Withered Hand touring last year.

10.   Ballboy. We can leap buildings and rivers but we really just want to fly. Another song I really like. Will have to look into their back catalogue.

11.   David Ford. Pour a little poison. Not too bad a little countryish for me. Another person I’d never heard of before. Might check out some his albums.

12.   Hamish Imlach .Black is the colour. My dad used to have a few of his albums but never listened to any myself. He is a great singer though.

13.   Aidan Moffat .Box it up. This one took me a long time to identify but I like it a lot. Was going to download 1 of his albums but the Chemikal Underground site wouldn’t let me. Will try again when I get home.

14.   Book Group. Lowdown of a loud sound. Another song that I like. Did mean to check out what they’d released after last years Aberfeldy Festival, but never got round to it.

15.   The New Mencidants. If you only knew her. Would never have got this one but was on a listening thread. Another album I’ll have to get when I get back.

16.   No idea at all who this is but think the singer has a great voice. A nice chilled out song. Another album to buy.

17.   Ted Hawkins. There stands the glass. Another singer I hadn’t heard of. He has a fantastic soulful voice.

18.   Wilbert Harrison. Kansas City. Never really listened to much Rock and Roll music and that probably won’t change. But this is a great song.

19.    Love and money .Candybar Express. I don’t like this at all. Out of all the tracks on this mix it’s the only one that if I was listening to on the radio in the car I would switch it off immediately. Absolutely terrible!

20.   Withered Hand. A New Case. I knew this was Withered Hand but took me ages to find out the song. I bought the compilation album but haven’t had time to listen to it properly yet. Dan’s 2 songs are good though.

Overall a great mix a very wide variety of music types. I’ve already bought quite a few albums on the strength of this mix and a lot more to follow, but definitely no Love and Money.

Earlier this week as I walked from Cellardyke, I was listening to a mix cd that started:
1. Baby it's cold outside by Zooey Deschanel
2. Walking in the rain by Grace Jones
3. Some song about walking past a harbour
Then that rolling Stones one about rainbows.

I've done 15 mix CDs this year and only three have received reviews.

:-(

1.   The Aliens. Magic Man. A great song from Luna, which I think is a brilliant album. This being the first song, made me think that this Hub-Mix was going to be easy. How wrong was I!

Always start strong, not many better starts than this, Magic Man - Aliens

2.   The Little Kicks. Girl. Don’t know anything about this group but really like this song. Will check out their other stuff.
The Little Kicks are an Aberdeen band that I'm not particularly keen on but really like this, taken from their latest album. Put Your Love in Front of Me. Their lead singer Steven Milne's solo stuff is well worth checking out, I think he'd go down well at and AETC/Fence event

3.   St Vincent. Digital witness. Don’t particularly like this, but is growing slightly, but only slightly.
If it wasn't for Withered Hand this would be my album of the year so far, looking forward to seeing her in Glasgow in May

4.   Miaoux Miaoux. Stop the clock. Brilliant song. Saw them “headlining” at last year’s Brew on the Bog. They didn’t strictly headline but were on last. Didn’t bother with the album as wasn’t sure I’d like them on CD as opposed to live. I have bought it now and think this is by far the best track.
I bought the album on the back of the mix cd I received, whilst it's pretty good this is easily the stand out track for me.

5.   I feel I should definitely know this but I can’t place it. I think I’ll kick myself when I find out. Like it a lot though.
This is The LEngths by Lomond 'Ziggy' Campbell. It's on the fanstastic Dewar's Experimental Batch no. 26 album but this version is from Vic Galloway's Hip Flask podcasts that he recorded at various events in 2012/13. EB No.26 is a 'must own' album, available from the Fence P.O. Box for £15 plus p&p.(Chekc the 'Piya' thread for exact details

6.   Again another one that I don’t know but think I should. Enlighten me and I’ll check her out further.
Iona Marshall's version of KC's Carbon Dating Agent. This was from a covers EP that I think was available through her bandcamp page a couple of years ago, it's a lovely version of a great song.

7.   Damien Dempsey. Serious. I’d never heard of him and only found the name of the track by typing what I thought was the title into Google. Don’t know if that’s cheating but I found out a lot of the songs this way. I like the song and will probably buy a few of his albums.
Damien Dempsey, the bard of Dublin. This is from the To Hell or Barbados album which I highly recommend. Fans of the Proclaimers will know their very average version of his magnum opus, Sing All Your Tears Away. If you are looking to buy some Damo I'd recommend this album or Shots or Sieze the Day. The last album, Almighty Love wasn't very good unfortunately.

8.   Sinead O’Connor. Old Lady. Haven’t listened to anything by her except as background music on the radio. This has made me realise what a great voice she has. So had to buy a couple of her albums.
How About I Be Me and You Be You is one of my ost played albums of the last couple of years, her version of Song To THe Siren rivals Kwaings IMHO.

9.   Charles Latham. Living wage. Have this on a free Toad Session download and think I’ll have to buy some of his stuff. Wished I’d managed to see him and Withered Hand touring last year.
He was great with WH at the Tunnels in Aberdeen. This is from the Fast Loans album whichi s terrific. There's a best of album too which includes Hard On which WH covered on Good News

10.   Ballboy. We can leap buildings and rivers but we really just want to fly. Another song I really like. Will have to look into their back catalogue.
You can't go wrong with any Ballboy album, this is from his 'I Worked On The Ships' album which is probably my favoutrite.

11.   David Ford. Pour a little poison. Not too bad a little countryish for me. Another person I’d never heard of before. Might check out some his albums.
THis is one of DF's more lightweight songs, but a nice enough ditty for halfway through the mix. Most of his catalogue is either songs with a political slant or moving ballads, he's a great lyricist. He's also a wizard with the loop pedal, building up songs piece by piece, check out the following as a good example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_aQ8yRVexM

12.   Hamish Imlach .Black is the colour. My dad used to have a few of his albums but never listened to any myself. He is a great singer though.
I discovered this when Paul Weller used it on his Studio 150 album. If only KC would cover a Hamish Imlach song.

13.   Aidan Moffat .Box it up. This one took me a long time to identify but I like it a lot. Was going to download 1 of his albums but the Chemikal Underground site wouldn’t let me. Will try again when I get home.
This was the b-side to Bills Wells & Aidan Moffat's cover of Cruel Summer, neither of which appeared on the magnificent Evertything's Getting Older album. This version is another one taken from Vic Galloway's Hikp Flask podcasts. If you haven't checked them put you really shoul,d some great stuff, from KC, WH, Gummi, FOUND and numerous others on them.

14.   Book Group. Lowdown of a loud sound. Another song that I like. Did mean to check out what they’d released after last years Aberfeldy Festival, but never got round to it.
I love me some Book Group, hope to get to their launch party for their new EP in Edinburgh in mid May.

15.   The New Mencidants. If you only knew her. Would never have got this one but was on a listening thread. Another album I’ll have to get when I get back.
I love Teenage Fanclub but I have to admit I'm  disappointed with this album, this is th stand out track for me, the rest of it is okay to meh

16.   No idea at all who this is but think the singer has a great voice. A nice chilled out song. Another album to buy.
This is Immersed by Quickbeam. I first saw them on Eigg at Awaygame 2, they craft some beautiful songs, the album is one of the standouts of last year. Along with Conquering Animal Sound, their ommission from the SAY Award was the most surprising.

17.   Ted Hawkins. There stands the glass. Another singer I hadn’t heard of. He has a fantastic soulful voice.
The late great Ted Hawkins, discovered by Andy Kershaw, I saw him support Billy Bragg and also headline some of his own Student Union gigs back in the 80's. A fantastic voice who never got the recognition he deserved. This is from the Venice Beach Sessions album

18.   Wilbert Harrison. Kansas City. Never really listened to much Rock and Roll music and that probably won’t change. But this is a great song.
If we are labelling I'd have this more in the rhythym and blues bucket but either way it's a brilliant song that stands the test of time. One of the first written by Leiber and Stoller I believe.

19.    Love and money .Candybar Express. I don’t like this at all. Out of all the tracks on this mix it’s the only one that if I was listening to on the radio in the car I would switch it off immediately. Absolutely terrible!
I think there was song Love and Money chat on one of the threads around the time I was making this mix so I put this on. I still love it, each to their own.

20.   Withered Hand. A New Case. I knew this was Withered Hand but took me ages to find out the song. I bought the compilation album but haven’t had time to listen to it properly yet. Dan’s 2 songs are good though.
One of Dan's 2 submissions to the Whatever Gets You Through The Night play. As beautiful and a haunting a refrin as you'd expect from the great man.

Glad you enjoyed most of it Alan and delighted to hear you've bought some of the albums, here's a link to the one you need to complete the collection

I used to see Ted Hawkins regularly in the london pub scene in the 80's, round about Happy Hour time ( was that the name of the album?).  He had a great voice but I think he was condemned to the pub scene because he could only play one finger barred chords with the guitar open tuned, so it was a bit one dimensional after a bit. A nice guy too.

Czefski, I thought KC's rendition of song to the siren a couple of weeks ago was superb.  I like the cocteau's version, also the original Tim Buckley is good, if a little baroque.

I've always thought of Ballboy as being a Scottish Wedding Present, maybe it's just me. Isn't Gordon a Hibbee as well? You lot should be sticking together at this time of crisis.

I think Royal Theatre in particular is very much in the style of the Wedding Present.  Is Cinerama the Gedge band that he formed during his Wedding Present hiatus?

Agree I like this track.




11.   David Ford. Pour a little poison. Not too bad a little countryish for me. Another person I’d never heard of before. Might check out some his albums.
THis is one of DF's more lightweight songs, but a nice enough ditty for halfway through the mix. Most of his catalogue is either songs with a political slant or moving ballads, he's a great lyricist. He's also a wizard with the loop pedal, building up songs piece by piece, check out the following as a good example https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t_aQ8yRVexM

A brilliant track. I think I'll definitely get some of his albums.
Title: Re: club de mix revue
Post by: hallav on Mon, Apr 28, 2014, 22:03 PM
My mix CD was called Why Not and here is the just-before-the-deadline review.
(told you I'd do it Mark  8))

Track1 – Moondog.
The only one who knows this ounce of words is just a token,
is he who has a tongue to tell that must remain unspoken
.”
I haven’t heard a lot of his music but this is a nice start to the CD. Any man that builds his own instruments can’t be too bad.

Track 2 - ?
Fela Kuti? Osibisa?
Polyrythms are always welcome, although I ‘m not a big fan of this particular style of African music. Very crunchy. Electronic. I’m more of a Tau Ea Matsekha man.

Track 3 - ?
Oh…..this is the sort of thing I fast forward through on Later I’m afraid.  It’s a collective or a project or an orchestra  I’m guessing and it’s very well produced with a female (guest?) vocalist singing in a foreign tongue. 

Track 4 – Sonny Boy Williamson
Thanks to my (much) older brother I was aware of the great man from a young age. This is a wonderful song.  I’m usually allergic to harmonicas but I make an exception in this case. His playing is more acoustic than electric . He had a unique style based on simple country blues but if you pay attention it’s very sophisticated. Marvellous.

Track 5 – Mink De Ville ooh no hang on its Tom Waits!
Shouldn’t try to guess from  the first few notes.
I prefer this version to Mr Springsteen’s. Although I do quite like the EBTG version too.

Track 6 – Syd Barrett
Not a fan. I listened all the way through but it was tough going. 

Track 7 – Capt Beefheart
I’m Glad from Safe AS Milk. This was re-played several times before I moved on to the next track. Haven’t heard it for ages.  Five or six years it’s senior and yet  sounds like it could be from Clear Spot. He’s the reason I got into Howlin Wolf and  Bobby Blue Bland.
I saw Don during the Tragic Band phase and went out and bought Trout Mask Replica. Well…..imagine my surprise. I got my mom to take it back to the shop (Graduate Records in Walsall, Reg/Roger……).  What did I swap it for? I’ll get back to you on that one at the end of the review*.
I bought my second copy of TMR a few years later.  Didn’t take that one back.
“If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.

Track 8 – The Noisettes
Their best known song aka the only one I actually remember.
 I’ll Never Forget You or maybe Always Remember Me I think it was called….
Enjoyable in a light frothy poppy way. She has a really good voice. Lovely pizzicato too.

Track 9 – Howard Devoto and/or Magazine
One of the few bands I wasn’t that into at the time although I enjoyed Howards interviews.
I’m hoping I haven’t got this wrong and it’s Bauhaus.
No it’s definitely Howard. Actually this has stood the test of time reasonably well.

Track 10 - ?
Hmmmm….this is the second song (maybe from the same collective?) that I fast forward through on Later…..
It’s a slow jazzy vibe with a female singer and it says nothing to me at all. But that’s OK.

Track 11 – Bryan Ferry Orchestra
Christ this divided a few people didn’t it. I loved the original Love Is The Drug and I love this ragtime/swing version too.
I  think ‘modern’ musicians have rarely engaged with music from the early 1900s, barring  the occasional pastiche (yes you, McCartney) or an authentic  simulation such as East St. Louis Toodle-Oo.  I think the Bonzos  Dadaist fantasy version worked very well but I don’t think Byron Ferrari has ever done whimsy. Anyway,  I liked the whole album and I don’t care who knows it.

Track 12 - ?
No idea who this is. Sounds like a lo-fi live recording but it’s very very good – maybe a bootleg?
Female singer, B3 in the background. Very understated and the whole performance makes me forget about the quality of the recording. It really doesn’t matter.
I would love to know who this is – I really like it.

Track 13 – Head, Hands & Feet
More thanks to my brother for this one. And kudos to the mixer, who clearly took the trouble to make a vinyl transfer ;)
It’s got a lovely gospelly feel, could easily be late era Band. Nice way to end the CD.


In summary, I’m not sure there is anything new (for me) on here that really holds any resonance apart from the Mystery Woman. But if I had sent out a CD with just one song that had the effect  Track 12 did on me, I’d be a happy boy.


*OK it was Pandora Records not Graduate Records but as the evidence clearly shows, it enabled me to make a swap for both Robert Wyatts follow up to Rock Bottom AND the eponymous Kokomo albums for only 60 additional pence.  In the early seventies I logged every purchase (come on it wasn’t just me….was it?)and clearly my tastes as a young teenager were already slightly wayward…..for every Ted Nugent there was an Iggy Pop, for every Snow Goose a Richard & Linda Thompson. It does explain Bens approach to music perhaps   :o

Title: Re: club de mix revue
Post by: hallav on Mon, Apr 28, 2014, 23:55 PM
Pandora (aka Sundown) Records was on Bradford Street. If you walked down to the bottom of the market and turned left it was almost opposite the entrance to the Saddlers Centre.

I've still got that Camel album.

Never any ELP though. I'll gladly submit to any third party audit to prove this point   8)

Seems almost pointless doing a reveal since you seem to have shazammed everything anyway, but here it is:


Track1 – Moondog.
I haven’t heard a lot of his music but this is a nice start to the CD. Any man that builds his own instruments can’t be too bad.


Yep. Moondog's Lament, short and powerful.


Track 2 - ?
Fela Kuti? Osibisa?
Polyrythms are always welcome, although I ‘m not a big fan of this particular style of African music. Very crunchy. Electronic. I’m more of a Tau Ea Matsekha man.

This is Manu Dibango doing Electric Africa.  Some great dirty bass sax.  I cut the 11 minute track down to 5 mins since you're not a fan of this stuff.

Track 3 - ?
Oh…..this is the sort of thing I fast forward through on Later I’m afraid.  It’s a collective or a project or an orchestra  I’m guessing and it’s very well produced with a female (guest?) vocalist singing in a foreign tongue.

Amazing you guessed it's a project and a collective and that the female is a guest vocalist , considering you havent heard it before. Sir/madam, I salute your indefatigability, although some might suspect you ran it past your smartphone and then googled it for good measure.  The game's up Moriarty, I know it's you.

Its Diferente from Lunatico by the Gotan Project from Argentina, and is sung in that foreign tongue formerly known as Spanish.

Track 4 – Sonny Boy Williamson
Thanks to my (much) older brother I was aware of the great man from a young age. This is a wonderful song.  I’m usually allergic to harmonicas but I make an exception in this case. His playing is more acoustic than electric . He had a unique style based on simple country blues but if you pay attention it’s very sophisticated. Marvellous.

He plays the harmonica, is that acoustic or electric? His music was certainly electric. This track is Help Me.

Track 5 – Mink De Ville ooh no hang on its Tom Waits!
Shouldn’t try to guess from  the first few notes.
I prefer this version to Mr Springsteen’s. Although I do quite like the EBTG version too.

Downtown train.  the original version, great vocals, guitar and drums.

Track 6 – Syd Barrett
Not a fan. I listened all the way through but it was tough going.

Terrapin from the Madcap Laughs LP.

Track 7 – Capt Beefheart
I’m Glad from Safe AS Milk. This was re-played several times before I moved on to the next track. Haven’t heard it for ages.  Five or six years it’s senior and yet  sounds like it could be from Clear Spot. He’s the reason I got into Howlin Wolf and  Bobby Blue Bland.

“If you want to be a different fish, you've got to jump out of the school.”

You got it.

Track 8 – The Noisettes
Their best known song aka the only one I actually remember.
 I’ll Never Forget You or maybe Always Remember Me I think it was called….
Enjoyable in a light frothy poppy way. She has a really good voice. Lovely pizzicato too.

Great wee pop song, Never Forget You.    This was the light relief part of the mix.

Track 9 – Howard Devoto and/or Magazine
One of the few bands I wasn’t that into at the time although I enjoyed Howards interviews.
I’m hoping I haven’t got this wrong and it’s Bauhaus.
No it’s definitely Howard. Actually this has stood the test of time reasonably well.

Yes its Howard with Magazine  and the song is Permafrost. This is a live version and you're right, it still sounds good.

Track 10 - ?
Hmmmm….this is the second song (maybe from the same collective?) that I fast forward through on Later…..
It’s a slow jazzy vibe with a female singer and it says nothing to me at all. But that’s OK.

Yup.  Celos by the Gotan project again.   Wake up dammit|  I  like this tango type music. Have you heard any Oscar Piazzolla stuff?

Track 11 – Bryan Ferry Orchestra
Christ this divided a few people didn’t it. I loved the original Love Is The Drug and I love this ragtime/swing version too.
I  think ‘modern’ musicians have rarely engaged with music from the early 1900s, barring  the occasional pastiche (yes you, McCartney) or an authentic  simulation such as East St. Louis Toodle-Oo.  I think the Bonzos  Dadaist fantasy version worked very well but I don’t think Byron Ferrari has ever done whimsy. Anyway,  I liked the whole album and I don’t care who knows it.

Yes, it's that Byron Ferry again, but it's Do The Strand, the swing version.

Track 12 - ?
No idea who this is. Sounds like a lo-fi live recording but it’s very very good – maybe a bootleg?
Female singer, B3 in the background. Very understated and the whole performance makes me forget about the quality of the recording. It really doesn’t matter.
I would love to know who this is – I really like it.

I'm glad you like this and being lo-fi as you say, you wouldnt get a reading even if you had pointed your phone at it.  Since your review has been a bit smartypants, I've decided not to tell you who it is.

Track 13 – Head, Hands & Feet
More thanks to my brother for this one. And kudos to the mixer, who clearly took the trouble to make a vinyl transfer ;)
It’s got a lovely gospelly feel, could easily be late era Band. Nice way to end the CD.


Gospelly??    It's Song for Suzie and it's on the El Pea sampler from nineteen oatcake.  Fabulous acoustic guitar solo from Albert Lee.




OK I've decided to forgive you, because if I dont I know god will punish me later for being petulant. He always does.   Track 12, well.... Jo Foster is coming to get you too.  This is 'and you know it' from the Riff Raff ep.  Marvelous.

I regret not grabbing that Jo Foster EP as much as missing her at HG7.

Getting  the wrong Ferry title is unforgivable :-[   Must get that smartphone checked out..... ::)

Apologies if the tone of the review came across as 'smatypants', it was never my intention, spent too long on The Word magazine forum and far too long listening to music for my own good.

And I trust the formidable Mrs H will take a stick to you if there are any fibs.

No problem, I enjoyed the ranting but admit to taking umbrage at the phone comments. I’ve been buying records for 47 years and despite my memory also resembling a string vest I am fairly good at remembering/retaining music related ephemera e.g. my first 7” was A Whiter Shade Of Pale when I was seven but immediately dispelling the myth of cool, my second purchase was All I Want for Xmas Is My Two Front Teeth by Freddy ‘Parrot Face’ Davies.
(http://www.soul-source.co.uk/soulforum/uploads/post-953-12768729681031_thumb.gif)

Pre-internet I remember seeing reviews/articles full of praise for Astrud Gilberto so, courtesy of Walsall Lending Library, I listened but the music just wasn’t for me. I almost suggested her as the ‘guest’ singer to the first of those Gotan Project tracks. In answer to your question I made the (unforgivable) generalisation that it sounded like a group of very good session musicians with an equally accomplished singer. In the early to mid seventies there were quite a few hideously expensive ‘direct cut from lathe to vinyl’ audiophile recordings that took such an approach and they were generally  samba/bossa nova/jazz influenced.
Yes I did buy one but the music was samba free.
http://www.amazon.com/Music-Sheffield-Direct-Disc-Vinyl/dp/B00006ZSU7/ref=cm_cmu_pg__header
I promised myself I  would never actually take it out of the sealed wrapper until I owned a Linn Sondek.
It’s still sealed.

I'd never heard The Gotan Project prior to the mix CD but mistakenly assumed they were a very different genre so I never considered it would be them. The fact that I couldn’t  tell the difference between those anodyne audiophile discs and the two tracks I was listening to on the CD doesn’t mean the Gotan Project are soulless session musos, it just means that I don’t have the ability to appreciate the difference.

I understand Deegers comments regarding Loveless and Trout Mask Replica but the former is the only MBV album I actually like and the latter remains one of my favourite albums ever, bearing in mind I wasn’t old enough or smart enough to force myself into listening to something because it was supposed to be cool. My first experience of Beefheart was when he signed to Virgin and was at his most conventional, so TMR was just a horrible noise the first time I heard it. I was (still am) fascinated by the man and the various Magic Band incarnations so it was inevitable I would return to ‘that’ album eventually. In fact.....<consults analogue database>.....during 1975 I bought Unconditionally Guaranteed, Trout Mask Replica, Strictly Personal, Clear Spot, Lick My Decals Off Baby, Bongo Fury and Trout Mask Replica(again).
Second copy was £4.39 so we can conclude that in 1975 the price of hindsight and/or liking something just because you're supposed to was 40p. Bargain! :D

Anybody alphabetise their CDs? I alphabetise and then store chronologically within artist/group... it gets worse.
Anyone who uses any other archiving system for music is just plain weird.

I understand Deegers comments regarding Loveless and Trout Mask Replica but the former is the only MBV album I actually like and the latter remains one of my favourite albums ever, bearing in mind I wasn’t old enough or smart enough to force myself into listening to something because it was supposed to be cool. My first experience of Beefheart was when he signed to Virgin and was at his most conventional, so TMR was just a horrible noise the first time I heard it. I was (still am) fascinated by the man and the various Magic Band incarnations so it was inevitable I would return to ‘that’ album eventually. In fact.....<consults analogue database>.....during 1975 I bought Unconditionally Guaranteed, Trout Mask Replica, Strictly Personal, Clear Spot, Lick My Decals Off Baby, Bongo Fury and Trout Mask Replica(again).


Did you ever see the great man live?

I did indeed. Birmingham Town Hall 1975 with the Tragic Band who were actually really good on the night. Big Eyed Beans From Venus was the standout.

I saw the 'real' Magic Band in Nottingham when they first re-emerged with John French doing an admirable job of channeling the Captain. One of my favourite gigs ever.

My mixer was generous enough to make two cds.  Thank goodness for the second. I’m not saying the first disc was awful or that it was unlistenable.  My 20 year old stepson Zak loved it and I’m sure that there are some on the hub who would like it also.  Just not me.  It’s probably a generational issue.

Zak is my direct opposite musically.  He cannot stand any of my music, be it Fence, Beatles, Eno, Beach Boys, Neutral Milk Hotel, Iron and Wine or Phosphorescent.

Suffice it to say that he loved Part I enough to save it on his MP3 player and commend me on my maturing taste in music.  Throughout my first (and only) listen, I just wanted to rip off my headphones, bang my head against the wall and run screaming out of the room.
There will be no review of part I, as I do not review until after four listens and cannot bring myself to begin listen number two.

Disc II – second review attempt.  (I listened to four tracks and loved them all – began to think something was wrong – and realized I was listening to a Dick Gaughan cd by mistake.  Sorry!)

1) Off to a good start.  Jamie’s Crying by Van Halen.  Solid Gold classis-rock.  My fingers are crossed … hoping …

2)  Starts off bluesy - but redeemed by the singer.  Nice rhythm, great sound, good beat.  I like this one.  Ashamed to say that I don’t recognize the artist.  A keeper.  Yes.  I liked this one better and better with each playing.

3)  Too techno for me.  Two listens was enough.  Sorry.   ;D

4) Motown 60’s sound.  Cool.  “you scratch like a monkey, yeah you do.  Come on baby.  groove to the Harlem shuffle.  Do the monkeyshine.”  Not bad – 3 of 4 so far!

5) Nice variety of music here.  Another oldey?  What style is this?  Early Billy Joel meets Pictish?  Another good one.

6) Slow romantic blues song.  Yecch.  (smiley)

7) “Pump up the volume – pump up the volume”  NO!  Please don’t!  Another one to give to Zak. I’m afraid.  Just chanting/rapping noise to me.

8) Now this, at least, is MUSIC, not just chanting.  Son of a Preacherman by (Dusty Springfield?) from 1969-71 era.  I used to like it a little back then.  Compared with Disc I it sounds like a solid 10 now.

9) 2001 soundtrack?  No … I break horses?  No … This one starts with some nice stickwork and a little electronica.  But then the vocalist starts in and he sounds like a drunken American Indian doing a rain dance.  It reminds me of the stuff my niece sends me from Africa.  However - the violin/flute sounding part is exquisite. If you could eliminate the vocals this would be great.   :D

10) Jezahel by Shirley Bassey.  Haven’t heard this in years.  Fits in well with the mix and I like it.

11) Orchestral.  Classical sounding.  Not up to Prokofiev standards but not bad.  More modern.  Soundtrack?  Good change of pace.

12) Over twelve minutes but I could only listen to about ten seconds.  ::)

Thanks mixer.  You did a lot of work, burning 27 songs, all of which are liked by someone in my family.  Some old ones which I enjoyed hearing again, some new ones which I want to hear more of and some which would destroy my hearing if I ever listened to them, but not your fault that I’m an old WASP fart with limited taste.  And I’m serious, Zak REALLY loved the other ones – he would like to meet you!

Rusticbob:

OK, so my mix arrived all the way from North Carolina, and features a fair amount of americana, so I’d bet my best Sunday shirt on this being from Uncle E. 
This one was difficult as I know nothing about you or your likes.  So I put together my first mix with 100% USA artists and just picked a variety of styles from my all time favorites.  Thank goodness you liked some of them!

Sorry about the delay in the review – was listening to it in the car with the kids a couple of weeks ago, but ended hitting the pause once the full force swearing kicked in.  They're “street” but they’re not that “street”. Finally managed to get some time to listen to it all the way through…so here goes…

Track 1:  Mellow country-tinged pleasantness. “It’s been a long hot summer with not a drop of rain.”  No idea what that feels like, but it sounds nice.
West-Texas Hill Country music, by Robert Earl Keen
 
Track 2: Another slice of mellow country-ness – but with a lady singing this time.
"Forget About It" - from Alison Krausse

Track 3: is all about Northern California Girls.  They sound nice.  And so does Track 3 – I’m liking this.
One of my favorite songs from Camper VanBeethoven.

Track 4: is also keeper – it’s about Benny and the Jets, but it’s not “Benny and the Jets”.  Nice backing.  Lots of noise.
"Benny and the Jets" by TV Girl.   Got this is a mix a year ot two ago.  Love it.

Track 5:  Again no idea who this is.  Got a sort of Byrds-ey sound to it, but it’s not the Byrds.  More recent.  Really like this one too..   
"Liar" by Built to Spill.  My druggist is a huge Jeff Mangum fan and insisted i try BTS.  Different but similiar.  Check em out!

Track 6: Nope – no clue again.  Has a sort of early Mercury Rev feel to the vocal.
Uncovering the Old by Dr. Dog.  Philly indie group, introduced to me by Jah.
 
Track 7: I know one!  It’s the Beach Boys doing Do It Again.  Haven’t heard this for ages.  Lovely.

Track 8: Another great song, and another one I don’t know. Nice song about Shadow People, with a highly irresponsible lyric about smoking.  Tut tut.  Had to explain that one to the kids.
Another Dr. Dog.  I never noticed the smoking bit - would figure you'd have more problem with the 'stole a bike' line.

Track 9 is a proper rock song with some proper rock vocals and at least two proper rock guitar solos.
"Arizona Skies" by Reckless Kelly from Austin.  They call themselves 'Hick Rock' but are listed as 'RedDirt' whatever that is.
 
Track 10 is ace.  Is this Neutral Milk Hotel?  I’m pretty certain it’s the guy from Neutral Milk Hotel singing.  Great stuff.
Yep. Where You'll Find Me Now.

Track 11 is DEFINITELY Neutral Milk Hotel – from the Aeroplanes / Sea album.  Also great.
Holland - 1945

Track 12 sounds a bit like the Levellers putting on American accents.  But that can’t be right.  Did the Levellers sing in American accents?
"Movin On" by Dawn of the Buffalo.   They're a upstate NY group with Folk-Rock-Zydeco- sound.

Track 13 is a live thing.  Again no idea who.  Irishy folky flavour though. 
"Northern Knees" by Loch Lomond from Washington state. 

Track 14 has a reggae beat, and a female soul vocal.  True love is hard to find.  Indeed.
The under-appreciated but unmistakable sound of Bonnie Raitt.

Track 15 – throaty vocals and a country backing.  Singing about Stone blind love. 
I'm surprised you missed Mr Tom Waites here

Track 16 has a wee bit of a Neil Young feel to it, but it’s not Neil Young.  Nice song.
"No Way to say Goodbye", covered by Phosphorescent.  LOVE this guy!

Track 17 something from the 70’s?  Again, a new one on me.
Early 70s.  "These are Not my People" by Joe South.  He was my favorite singer back then, and i still like his music today.

Track 18 is another mellow, mournful country-style song with a female vocal. 
"Goodnight" by Lucy Kaplansky.  Daughter of a famous mathematician, licensed Psychologist, but folk singer by popular demand.

Track 19 is a potty-mouthed country anthem.  Lots of choice swearing, so this is where it got paused to protect the innocent – and I was minutes from the finish line...
This was supposed to be last and a hidden track.  He does say that he hopes he won't offend anybody.

Just as well though, as Track 20 is more country filth.  When did country music get so dirty?
Potty mouthed?  Tobacco mouthed maybe!  It's about a chewer who can't seem to find a lasting relationship. "Copenhagen" by R.E.Keen.
I went to the movies with my little Mary Sue,  I had that pit there in my lip just like I always do,  She didn't know I was spittin' in my Coca-cola cup,  She took a great big swaller and then threw her popcorn up... Copenhagen, what a wad of flavor.  Copenhagen, you can see it in my smile!


..and that’s the end.  Thank you!  I enjoyed that – a lot from a genre that I don’t listen to much, but some great songs on there.  Looking forward to the reveal, will definitely be tracking down a bunch of those.

Thanks, mixee – appreciate it!

Thank you for a great review.  I'm glad that you found some that you enjoyed and glad most were new to you.  That's the idea - to find new loves/likes.

1) Not a drop of rain              by  Robert E. Keen

3) Northern California Girls     by  Camper VanBeethoven
4) Benny and the Jets             by TV Girl
5) Liar            by Built to Spill

The ticket sales were so poor that the manager let me have as many freebies as I wanted, so I got in touch with all my Beefheart buddies and we almost filled a row! We'll never see his likes again. (although Paul Vickers and the Leg at the Yellae Deuks on Saturday evening ran a close second!)

Three times and three different bands. You were very fortunate indeed. I would have loved to see him again.

Paul Vickers was new to me until Yellae Deuks but ScotPaulaBear and I both thoroughly enjoyed the 'experience'.  I think we will both remember his words of wisdom regarding trifles for many years to come.  I've already ordered Itchy Grumble and there's the whole Dawn Of The Replicants back catalogue to dive into as well :)

He was new to me too and my most vivid memory of Yellae Deuks. I purchased 'Tropical Favourites' on the night and subsequently 'Nest Of Nickers' but it's taking me a while to get into them. I suspect that the live Paul Vickers and the studio one are two different animals. The dream ticket for me would be a live recording on dvd ( because I think you need the visual element as well). If anyone reading this, did record Paul Vicars and the Leg at Yellae Deuks (or indeed has any live footage of him) I'd love to see it.

My mixer was generous enough to make two cds.  Thank goodness for the second.

Reveal to follow but the concept was disc 1 = the samplers, disc 2 = the sampled.

phew, just made it before
the naming and shaming.  :)



1.   

lovely start to my hub mix with
shimmering guitars and female
vocals. no idea who this is but
I likey.

2.   

funky bass riff to kick this one off.
oooh, thought I recognised this –
it’s devendra banhart with rats. this
is the album where he’s been listening
 to the rose’s second coming as that
bass line is taken straight from it.
very funky, and we do love db in this
house.

3.   

slow paced folky female delivery and
v dull. can’t be arsed with this one.

4.   

this is the quite brilliant barbarossa
with saviour self. love this album, and
this song is one of the best tracks.
great soulful feel. love it.

5.   

rolling country-ish female vocals accompanied
by brushed, controlled drumming and guitar.
could be lucinda williams but don’t think it is.

6.   

bit of a dance beat behind this one, with reversed
vocals?? squidgy synthesiser and sounds like
someone playing the spoons on a loop. mmmm,
all instrumental, not really my bag but fairly listenable.

7.   

more acoustic female tomfoolery. nice voice but a bit
boring to be honest. puts me in mind of martha tilston
or kathryn williams though i don’t think it’s either of them.

8.   

bit of a theme of folky female vocalists emerging
here and this is probably the worst of the lot so
far. this is just dull I’m afraid.

9.   

opening sounds like low’s when i go deaf, and,
to be honest, it continues to sound like it all the
way through. someone needs to tell alan sparhawk
about this. not bad though.

10.   

instantly recognisable opening – it’s the wonderful
neutral milk hotel. this is untitled from the incredible
aeroplane over the sea album. totally brilliant.

11.   

please don’t let me be misunderstood cover by someone
I don’t know.

12.   

i know this voice, i do, i do. adrian crowley??? another
cracker. don’t know the song as I don’t have enough
of his stuff. something to remedy, me thinks.

13.   

this could be devendra again – same style – and
i do like this one too. acoustic pickings and hushed
vocals. nice.

14.   

this has a real summery feel to it - a la apples in
stereo. the ‘c’mon c’mon’ riff has recently been used
by dan, dan the withered hand man on his most
recent release. a dead ringer for his song fall apart.
wonder if it’s on purpose as it sounds tooooo alike,
you get me.

15.   

another female vocal and nice piano opening, again
no idea who this is but you’ll be glad to know I like
this one. actually I do know this voice – jo mango?
ach, I’m not so sure now.

16.   

loping, ramshackle country vibe to this one and
again this is to my taste. jeffery lewis? maybes
naw.

17.   

this one is quite rozi plain-ish. i.e. plain. skip.

18.   

is this jo foster? sounds a bit like her, though the
longer it goes on i can hear kate bush, which probably
means it’s tori amos.



thanks very much for the mix. most of it was unfortunately
not to my taste, but it was nice to hear new music i probably
wouldn’t have done if not for the hub mix club. the amount
of female artsists makes me think my mixer if a woman –
hope that doesn’t come across as sexist, it’s just a fact.
again, my thanks.

Thanks mixer.  You did a lot of work, burning 27 songs, all of which are liked by someone in my family.  Some old ones which I enjoyed hearing again, some new ones which I want to hear more of and some which would destroy my hearing if I ever listened to them, but not your fault that I’m an old WASP fart with limited taste.  And I’m serious, Zak REALLY loved the other ones – he would like to meet you!

Dude, that was my best west coast hip-hop mix.

Reveal to follow but the concept was disc 1 = the samplers, disc 2 = the sampled.

More importantly, was there a good 'flow' to the mix Uncle E?

What do you think?

.   

1.lovely start to my hub mix with
shimmering guitars and female
vocals. no idea who this is but
I likey.
Father Said by Olympic swimmers, from the album No Flags Will Fly.A Glasgow group who I think have only release this 1 album so far. They’ve toured with Admiral Fallow and  collaborated with them on some stuff.  

2.funky bass riff to kick this one off.
oooh, thought I recognised this –
it’s devendra banhart with rats. this
is the album where he’s been listening
 to the rose’s second coming as that
bass line is taken straight from it.
very funky, and we do love db in this
house.

I think this is a great album, very varied (unlike my mix) I heard of him on an Uncut or Mojo acid folk CD that he compiled and only found recently.

 

3.slow paced folky female delivery and
v dull. can’t be arsed with this one.

This The Fireman by Sarabeth Tucek  from the album Get Well Soon. I think she has a great voice but the album is a bit hit and miss.

   

4.this is the quite brilliant barbarossa
with saviour self. love this album, and
this song is one of the best tracks.
great soulful feel. love it.

Brilliant album and I think this is the best track. Seen him live supporting Francois and the Atlas Mountains. He was great live as well. Another artist I would never have found if it wasn’t for this site.

5.rolling country-ish female vocals accompanied
by brushed, controlled drumming and guitar.
could be lucinda williams but don’t think it is.

Metal Heart by Cat Power. I think she has a great voice but some of her songs are a bit of a letdown. The album that this is from, Moon Pix is really good though.


6.bit of a dance beat behind this one, with reversed
vocals?? squidgy synthesiser and sounds like
someone playing the spoons on a loop. mmmm,
all instrumental, not really my bag but fairly listenable.

Do the Astral Plain by Flying Lotus. I’ve got a couple of his albums and really have to be in a certain mood to enjoy them. Very experimental and bordering on noise at times. 

7.more acoustic female tomfoolery. nice voice but a bit
boring to be honest. puts me in mind of martha tilston
or kathryn williams though i don’t think it’s either of them.

It is Martha Tilston. Space from the album Bimbling. I actually think this is the best track from a really good album.

 

8.bit of a theme of folky female vocalists emerging
here and this is probably the worst of the lot so
far. this is just dull I’m afraid.

We Intertwine by Larkin Poe. I’ve seen them live at last years Cambridge folk festival. Must admit there not so good on CD compared to live.
 

9.opening sounds like low’s when i go deaf, and,
to be honest, it continues to sound like it all the
way through. someone needs to tell alan sparhawk
about this. not bad though.

Unofferable by Half Moon Run from the album Dark Eyes. A Canadian group that I don’t know much about. The album’s good though.
 

10.instantly recognisable opening – it’s the wonderful
neutral milk hotel. this is untitled from the incredible
aeroplane over the sea album. totally brilliant.

Agree, absolutely brilliant. Hopefully going to see them this year in Edinburgh and Green Man Feestival, if I get home for either. Some of their live videos on you tube are fantastic.

11.please don’t let me be misunderstood cover by someone
I don’t know.

This is by Meshell Ndegeocello. I got it as a free Linn download as part of there Christmas promo. It’s part of an album dedicated to Nina Simone  Pour une âme souveraine

12.i know this voice, i do, i do. adrian crowley??? another
cracker. don’t know the song as I don’t have enough
of his stuff. something to remedy, me thinks.

You’re correct. These Ley Waters from the Long Distance Swimmer album. I will probably have to get more of his albums as well.
[/color


13.this could be devendra again – same style – and
i do like this one too. acoustic pickings and hushed
vocals. nice.

Palms by Jana Hunter. This is released on a label formed by Devendra. The album is There’s No Home. A really good , generally laid back album.


14.this has a real summery feel to it - a la apples in
stereo. the ‘c’mon c’mon’ riff has recently been used
by dan, dan the withered hand man on his most
recent release. a dead ringer for his song fall apart.
wonder if it’s on purpose as it sounds tooooo alike,
you get me.

If You Decide by We are Catchers. I just downloaded the album, the day before doing this mix, from Domino’s Drip FM. I really like the summery feel as well.
   
15.another female vocal and nice piano opening, again
no idea who this is but you’ll be glad to know I like
this one. actually I do know this voice – jo mango?
ach, I’m not so sure now.

Yep Jo Mango. When we lived in a crook of a tree. The title track of an EP.


loping, ramshackle country vibe to this one and
again this is to my taste. jeffery lewis? maybes
naw.

Write A Novel by Star Wheel press. I though they were really good at last years Aberfeldy festival. There can’t be many bands do live printing during a gig, thankfully. But a good album.



17.this one is quite rozi plain-ish. i.e. plain. skip.

Brother Sparrow by Agnes Obel. A great chill-out album but individual tracks aren’t as good. Not listened to it for a while.
   
18.is this jo foster? sounds a bit like her, though the
longer it goes on i can hear kate bush, which probably
means it’s tori amos.

Baby Birch by Joanna Newsom. I think a brilliant song  it’s from the triple album Have One On Me. I think her voice can become grating after a while, but listening to one CD at a time she’s great. If your music collection is a bit short on harp players you can do no better than adding one of her albums.


thanks very much for the mix. most of it was unfortunately
not to my taste, but it was nice to hear new music i probably
wouldn’t have done if not for the hub mix club. the amount
of female artsists makes me think my mixer if a woman –
hope that doesn’t come across as sexist, it’s just a fact.
again, my thanks.


I can understand you thinking it was from a woman. Until about a year ago the only female singer I had in my collection was Joan Baez. For some reason I’ve got loads of female musicians over the past year.
 I got so stressed burning this mix. I thought long and hard about what I was going to put on it. But when I burnt my original mix it wouldn’t play on most CD players. I tried different formats but still it wouldn’t work for most tracks. When I was down to my last CDR I was either going to launch my computer out of the window or relax. So I had a cup of chamomile and honey tea and listened to some more laid back music and this is the result. Only a couple of tracks off my original mix survived. I agree some of it is a bit bland, but my computer still survives. Glad you liked some of it. This was my first mix and not to sure how it would go. My musical tastes are quite varied with the exception of ELO ;) and a few others.


Don't know whats happened to the formatting but I've had too many beers and up too early tomorrow to fix it

It’s mid-April and, having given up all hope of ever receiving a Hubbub Mixclub CD to review, I decided to take myself off to the West coast to get over my disillusionment.  Having put the whole sorry episode behind me, imagine my surprise on returning home, some 10 days later, to find a suspicious package on the mat.  The package contained an unmarked cd in an unmarked case, postmarked St Andrews on 15 April 2014, I’d left on the 12th.

These things need a distraction-free environment to be enjoyed/endured so, resisting the temptation to stick it on right away, decided to crack on with the unpacking, washing, ironing and so on…two days later I put the CD on in the car:

Track 1:   Having safely negotiated a busy roundabout, I’m cruising a country lane and enjoying the intro.  Just as I cross a bridge (Bridge 49, in actual fact) over the canal, I realize that I recognise the female vocal and, after a few agonising seconds, it comes to me…the B-52s!  The male vocalist comes in at that point, as if just to confirm it.  It’s a long time since I purposely listened to the B-52s and this isn’t a track I recognise, not one of the obvious ones, but, I’ve listened again several times since and it’s a great track.

Track 2:   Oooh, strings…nice arrangement.  Spanish(?) language vocal and contender for track of the mix already!  It appears to be a live track and the orchestration is fantastic.  No idea who this is but, I'm enjoying it more than I feel I should and, if I have to guess at it, I’ll say Alex Cuba Band (though I don’t think so)?  I’m passing under a viaduct now but, if you tell me it’s Julio or Enrique Iglesias, I might just turn around and jump off Bridge 49!

Track 3:   Unmistakably, Gruff Rhys, I know the song too but, the old cogs are turning a bit slowly this morning, I’ve not been well, and it’s a struggle to wrest the full details from my mind.  Eventually, it comes before the song ends, Neon Neon’s I Told Her On Alderaan.  I never got around to getting that album and I’ve just read it was based on the DeLorean story.  Don’t tell anyone but, I’ve an uncle who received an OBE for bringing him down.  Nice, the mix is going well.

Track 4:   I’m now approaching the shores of the Forth…the wrong shore.  I know this one too and it’s taking longer to get than the previous one.  I’m talking to myself now, not sure whether it’s out loud or not, and thinking Jesus & Mary Chain but, too mellow which is when it comes to me.  It’s The Pains of Being Pure at Heart and Contender.  I have the album but, like the B-52s, haven’t played it in a while despite playing it to death when I first got it.  I’m liking it but, it’s not making me rush to stick the album on…yet.

Track 5:   I’m in work now and no-one else is here today so, peace to listen on uninterrupted.  Another familiar track, some 90s guff... good 90s guff.  As I was saying in my reveal to Rosti, I’ve been on a bit of a nineties tip of late but, this wasn’t among it and I’m having to work hard on my recall but the chorus comes to my aid…Cut Your Hair by Pavement.  I missed Pavement when they were around and it was listening to Malkmus that led me to their music, somewhat belatedly.  Five tracks in and it’s all "flowing" well but I’m having to work too hard…I’m supposed to be taking it easy today!

Track 6:   90s guff a-go-go…this was among the stuff I’ve been listening to of late and even recently bought up some of their stuff we didn’t have, at she-who-must-be-obeyed’s behest.  Brilliant track, Smashing Pumpkins and Landslide. 6 (Six) – 0 (Nil).

Track 7:   This is unmistakably Teenage Fanclub but, I didn’t know the track name.  I just always assumed it was called “Every Kind of Feeling”, turns out it’s Alcoholiday…who’d have thunk it.  I have Bandwagonesque but, tend to just listen to Four Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-Six Seconds...which is a pity (note to self).

Track 8:   I hear the voice and immediately think of Karine Polwart (chance for another factoid:  we went to the same school - her before me* obvs*  :) - and her siblings and mine remain the best of friends) but, does she do Gaelic? Probably but, when it eventually dawns on me that the song is Blackbird, I realise it’s more likely Julie Fowlis (who never went to school with me, which is a shame, as I might have been able to tell of the time I got a knock-back from JF  :P).  Very nice..the song, that is.
*Those 3 words may be the jumbled up.

Incidentally, on the way in to work today with the communal iPod on shuffle, Iona Marshall’s “I Music” was preceded by Amy MacDonald (Ordinary Life)…I know  :-[  it’s the wife’s (though I do have a soft spot for Amy MacD).  The difference in quality between these two songs is miles apart and the irony is that the weaker of the two will have out-“sold” the other by thousands to one (YouTube Views 145,700 vs. 420)…travesty.  Anyway, to help reset the balance, here’s some of Iona’s stuff, including Yellae Deuks footage recently uploaded by Little Pebble http://www.youtube.com/user/ionamarshallmusic

Track 9:   Consolation goal or comeback on?! 8-1!  Horns, lady offering to take my pain away but she doesn’t, she just keeps bringing it on.  No, that’s a bit harsh, it’s not that bad but, I’m struggling to get into (still so, after several listens but wait a minute, listening jst as I am about to post this and it sounds fine, obviously suits late night listening...I'm sure I know that voice, going to be kicking myself).  No idea who it is although, the voice seems slightly familiar, I could not place it.  Does it upset the mix/flow? Not at all.

Track 10:   And, as it turns out, the final track.  Again, unmistakably Radiohead and, again (to me at least) one of their less-obvious tracks.  Like Spinning Plates.  Nice finish and a 9-1 annihilation.

I had no idea who the disc was from, unsure if the postmark was a red herring or not, until Ade posted this the other day:
"I've done 15 mix CDs this year and only three have received reviews. :-("
A quick scroll through the mix revue thread suggested he’s blown his cover so, “Cheeky d4$t4rb, I’ll just make him sweat until deadline day”, is what I thought  ;)

Really enjoying the mix and, perversely, really enjoyed the challenge of recognising most of the voices and wracking my tiny brain to work out who and what, that’s what it’s all about though, eh?!  I’ve been saved a small fortune too as I have most of these in my collection but, keen to find out the B-52s track, more about track 2 and curious about Track 9.

Thanks, Mixer and thanks also to Marktifano for organising.

Shit...overshot the deadline, sorry everyone.

I was the only person to buy Iona's new album from the Yallae Deuks merch desk on Saturday night, more fool the rest of you, cos it's great, full band stuff, reminds me of Sinead in some ways.

I bought my copy of Iona's album direct from herself.
No way The Man is.getting my dollar.

This is 'Dance This Mess Around' by The B-52s. I used to go to Sleeves record store in Kirkcaldy every Saturday to buy vinyl and always saw this bright yellow cover, with a lobster on it. It was a pre-Cosmic Thing greatest hits album by The B-52s. I finally bought the album and this is my favourite track on it. The original album it is off is The B-52s epnoymous first record.

Track 2:   Oooh, strings…nice arrangement.  Spanish(?) language vocal and contender for track of the mix already!  It appears to be a live track and the orchestration is fantastic.  No idea who this is but, I'm enjoying it more than I feel I should and, if I have to guess at it, I’ll say Alex Cuba Band (though I don’t think so)?  I’m passing under a viaduct now but, if you tell me it’s Julio or Enrique Iglesias, I might just turn around and jump off Bridge 49!

I first heard this song watching Pedro Almovodar's great film (in my opinion!) Talk To Her. I managed to find the track on iTunes - 'Cucurrucucu' by Caetano Veloso

Track 3:   Unmistakably, Gruff Rhys, I know the song too but, the old cogs are turning a bit slowly this morning, I’ve not been well, and it’s a struggle to wrest the full details from my mind.  Eventually, it comes before the song ends, Neon Neon’s I Told Her On Alderaan.  I never got around to getting that album and I’ve just read it was based on the DeLorean story.  Don’t tell anyone but, I’ve an uncle who received an OBE for bringing him down.  Nice, the mix is going well.

correct!

correct x 3

Track 6:   90s guff a-go-go…this was among the stuff I’ve been listening to of late and even recently bought up some of their stuff we didn’t have, at she-who-must-be-obeyed’s behest.  Brilliant track, Smashing Pumpkins and Landslide. 6 (Six) – 0 (Nil).

Huge Teenage Fanclub fan, so had to put on one of my favourite tracks off any album. Showing my age when I type that I grew up with this album. Love 'December' from the same album

Track 8:   I hear the voice and immediately think of Karine Polwart (chance for another factoid:  we went to the same school - her before me* obvs*  :) - and her siblings and mine remain the best of friends) but, does she do Gaelic? Probably but, when it eventually dawns on me that the song is Blackbird, I realise it’s more likely Julie Fowlis (who never went to school with me, which is a shame, as I might have been able to tell of the time I got a knock-back from JF  :P).  Very nice..the song, that is.
*Those 3 words may be the jumbled up.

It is 'Lon-Dubh' by Julie Fowlis, a gaelic cover of Blackbird.

This track is 'King of Silence' by Japanese band Cibo Matto

Shit...overshot the deadline, sorry everyone.

First time I have ever done this, so I am glad you liked it. I felt bad as i sent it, as my cd came with a homemade cover and there was obviously a bit of effort put into it. I was running so late, I just stuck it in an envelope and sent it off.

Regarding the mix, I received... Sorry I haven't left a review, but I am enjoying it and playing it in the car a lot. Everyone in the car gave out a cheer, when the first track had my name in the lyrics!

The only problem is that the songs are all combined as track 1, so whenever the car is turned off, the cd goes back to the beginning, meaning I am hearing a lot more of the earlier tracks. We're off this weekend, so will try to do a review, but rest assured, the cd got a thumbs up from me!

Track 7:   This is unmistakably Teenage Fanclub but, I didn’t know the track name.  I just always assumed it was called “Every Kind of Feeling”, turns out it’s Alcoholiday…who’d have thunk it.  I have Bandwagonesque but, tend to just listen to Four Thousand Seven Hundred and Sixty-Six Seconds...which is a pity (note to self).

Huge Teenage Fanclub fan, so had to put on one of my favourite tracks off any album. Showing my age when I type that I grew up with this album. Love 'December' from the same album

Track 8:   I hear the voice and immediately think of Karine Polwart (chance for another factoid:  we went to the same school - her before me* obvs*  :) - and her siblings and mine remain the best of friends) but, does she do Gaelic? Probably but, when it eventually dawns on me that the song is Blackbird, I realise it’s more likely Julie Fowlis (who never went to school with me, which is a shame, as I might have been able to tell of the time I got a knock-back from JF  :P).  Very nice..the song, that is.
*Those 3 words may be the jumbled up.

It is 'Lon-Dubh' by Julie Fowlis, a gaelic cover of Blackbird.

Incidentally, on the way in to work today with the communal iPod on shuffle, Iona Marshall’s “I Music” was preceded by Amy MacDonald (Ordinary Life)…I know  :-[  it’s the wife’s (though I do have a soft spot for Amy MacD).  The difference in quality between these two songs is miles apart and the irony is that the weaker of the two will have out-“sold” the other by thousands to one (YouTube Views 145,700 vs. 420)…travesty.  Anyway, to help reset the balance, here’s some of Iona’s stuff, including Yellae Deuks footage recently uploaded by Little Pebble http://www.youtube.com/user/ionamarshallmusic

Track 9:   Consolation goal or comeback on?! 8-1!  Horns, lady offering to take my pain away but she doesn’t, she just keeps bringing it on.  No, that’s a bit harsh, it’s not that bad but, I’m struggling to get into (still so, after several listens but wait a minute, listening jst as I am about to post this and it sounds fine, obviously suits late night listening...I'm sure I know that voice, going to be kicking myself).  No idea who it is although, the voice seems slightly familiar, I could not place it.  Does it upset the mix/flow? Not at all.

This track is 'King of Silence' by Japanese band Cibo Matto

Track 10:   And, as it turns out, the final track.  Again, unmistakably Radiohead and, again (to me at least) one of their less-obvious tracks.  Like Spinning Plates.  Nice finish and a 9-1 annihilation.

correct again. Off their harder-to-get-into album, Amnesiac

I had no idea who the disc was from, unsure if the postmark was a red herring or not, until Ade posted this the other day:
"I've done 15 mix CDs this year and only three have received reviews. :-("
A quick scroll through the mix revue thread suggested he’s blown his cover so, “Cheeky d4$t4rb, I’ll just make him sweat until deadline day”, is what I thought  ;)

Really enjoying the mix and, perversely, really enjoyed the challenge of recognising most of the voices and wracking my tiny brain to work out who and what, that’s what it’s all about though, eh?!  I’ve been saved a small fortune too as I have most of these in my collection but, keen to find out the B-52s track, more about track 2 and curious about Track 9.

Thanks, Mixer and thanks also to Marktifano for organising.

Shit...overshot the deadline, sorry everyone.

First time I have ever done this, so I am glad you liked it. I felt bad as i sent it, as my cd came with a homemade cover and there was obviously a bit of effort put into it. I was running so late, I just stuck it in an envelope and sent it off.

Regarding the mix, I received... Sorry I haven't left a review, but I am enjoying it and playing it in the car a lot. Everyone in the car gave out a cheer, when the first track had my name in the lyrics!

The only problem is that the songs are all combined as track 1, so whenever the car is turned off, the cd goes back to the beginning, meaning I am hearing a lot more of the earlier tracks. We're off this weekend, so will try to do a review, but rest assured, the cd got a thumbs up from me!
Ah, not Ade then...excellent detective work there.  ???

Thanks for the reveal, B-52s track title rings a bell now; Caetano Veloso eh, excellent; hadn't dawned on me Landslide was a Mac cover either; don't know Cibo Matto; Sleeves was my main record store too, usually the Falkirk branch but, occasionally Kirkcaldy (courtesy of my Mum being a Fifer).  Any future stars working behind the counter of the Kirkcaldy branch?  Falkirk had the Arab Strap boys and didn't OTF work there as well?!

Thanks again, JoJo Tipps.

You need a longer car journey  ;)
Couldn't resist making that the first song on the CD given your forum name. They started out as individual tracks with a link between each one but it wasn't working so, staying true to the spirit of Flo, I merged them into one long track.
If you want another copy with individual tracks just let me know - glad you like it :)

.   

1.lovely start to my hub mix with
shimmering guitars and female
vocals. no idea who this is but
I likey.
Father Said by Olympic swimmers, from the album No Flags Will Fly.A Glasgow group who I think have only release this 1 album so far. They’ve toured with Admiral Fallow and  collaborated with them on some stuff.  

2.funky bass riff to kick this one off.
oooh, thought I recognised this –
it’s devendra banhart with rats. this
is the album where he’s been listening
 to the rose’s second coming as that
bass line is taken straight from it.
very funky, and we do love db in this
house.

I think this is a great album, very varied (unlike my mix) I heard of him on an Uncut or Mojo acid folk CD that he compiled and only found recently.

 

3.slow paced folky female delivery and
v dull. can’t be arsed with this one.

This The Fireman by Sarabeth Tucek  from the album Get Well Soon. I think she has a great voice but the album is a bit hit and miss.

   

4.this is the quite brilliant barbarossa
with saviour self. love this album, and
this song is one of the best tracks.
great soulful feel. love it.

Brilliant album and I think this is the best track. Seen him live supporting Francois and the Atlas Mountains. He was great live as well. Another artist I would never have found if it wasn’t for this site.

5.rolling country-ish female vocals accompanied
by brushed, controlled drumming and guitar.
could be lucinda williams but don’t think it is.

Metal Heart by Cat Power. I think she has a great voice but some of her songs are a bit of a letdown. The album that this is from, Moon Pix is really good though.


6.bit of a dance beat behind this one, with reversed
vocals?? squidgy synthesiser and sounds like
someone playing the spoons on a loop. mmmm,
all instrumental, not really my bag but fairly listenable.

Do the Astral Plain by Flying Lotus. I’ve got a couple of his albums and really have to be in a certain mood to enjoy them. Very experimental and bordering on noise at times. 

7.more acoustic female tomfoolery. nice voice but a bit
boring to be honest. puts me in mind of martha tilston
or kathryn williams though i don’t think it’s either of them.

It is Martha Tilston. Space from the album Bimbling. I actually think this is the best track from a really good album.

 

8.bit of a theme of folky female vocalists emerging
here and this is probably the worst of the lot so
far. this is just dull I’m afraid.

We Intertwine by Larkin Poe. I’ve seen them live at last years Cambridge folk festival. Must admit there not so good on CD compared to live.
 

9.opening sounds like low’s when i go deaf, and,
to be honest, it continues to sound like it all the
way through. someone needs to tell alan sparhawk
about this. not bad though.

Unofferable by Half Moon Run from the album Dark Eyes. A Canadian group that I don’t know much about. The album’s good though.
 

10.instantly recognisable opening – it’s the wonderful
neutral milk hotel. this is untitled from the incredible
aeroplane over the sea album. totally brilliant.

Agree, absolutely brilliant. Hopefully going to see them this year in Edinburgh and Green Man Feestival, if I get home for either. Some of their live videos on you tube are fantastic.

11.please don’t let me be misunderstood cover by someone
I don’t know.

This is by Meshell Ndegeocello. I got it as a free Linn download as part of there Christmas promo. It’s part of an album dedicated to Nina Simone  Pour une âme souveraine

12.i know this voice, i do, i do. adrian crowley??? another
cracker. don’t know the song as I don’t have enough
of his stuff. something to remedy, me thinks.

You’re correct. These Ley Waters from the Long Distance Swimmer album. I will probably have to get more of his albums as well.
[/color


13.this could be devendra again – same style – and
i do like this one too. acoustic pickings and hushed
vocals. nice.

Palms by Jana Hunter. This is released on a label formed by Devendra. The album is There’s No Home. A really good , generally laid back album.


14.this has a real summery feel to it - a la apples in
stereo. the ‘c’mon c’mon’ riff has recently been used
by dan, dan the withered hand man on his most
recent release. a dead ringer for his song fall apart.
wonder if it’s on purpose as it sounds tooooo alike,
you get me.

If You Decide by We are Catchers. I just downloaded the album, the day before doing this mix, from Domino’s Drip FM. I really like the summery feel as well.
   
15.another female vocal and nice piano opening, again
no idea who this is but you’ll be glad to know I like
this one. actually I do know this voice – jo mango?
ach, I’m not so sure now.

Yep Jo Mango. When we lived in a crook of a tree. The title track of an EP.


loping, ramshackle country vibe to this one and
again this is to my taste. jeffery lewis? maybes
naw.

Write A Novel by Star Wheel press. I though they were really good at last years Aberfeldy festival. There can’t be many bands do live printing during a gig, thankfully. But a good album.



17.this one is quite rozi plain-ish. i.e. plain. skip.

Brother Sparrow by Agnes Obel. A great chill-out album but individual tracks aren’t as good. Not listened to it for a while.
   
18.is this jo foster? sounds a bit like her, though the
longer it goes on i can hear kate bush, which probably
means it’s tori amos.

Baby Birch by Joanna Newsom. I think a brilliant song  it’s from the triple album Have One On Me. I think her voice can become grating after a while, but listening to one CD at a time she’s great. If your music collection is a bit short on harp players you can do no better than adding one of her albums.


thanks very much for the mix. most of it was unfortunately
not to my taste, but it was nice to hear new music i probably
wouldn’t have done if not for the hub mix club. the amount
of female artsists makes me think my mixer if a woman –
hope that doesn’t come across as sexist, it’s just a fact.
again, my thanks.


I can understand you thinking it was from a woman. Until about a year ago the only female singer I had in my collection was Joan Baez. For some reason I’ve got loads of female musicians over the past year.
 I got so stressed burning this mix. I thought long and hard about what I was going to put on it. But when I burnt my original mix it wouldn’t play on most CD players. I tried different formats but still it wouldn’t work for most tracks. When I was down to my last CDR I was either going to launch my computer out of the window or relax. So I had a cup of chamomile and honey tea and listened to some more laid back music and this is the result. Only a couple of tracks off my original mix survived. I agree some of it is a bit bland, but my computer still survives. Glad you liked some of it. This was my first mix and not to sure how it would go. My musical tastes are quite varied with the exception of ELO ;) and a few others.


Don't know whats happened to the formatting but I've had too many beers and up too early tomorrow to fix it


hello rainmaker, thanks again for the mix,
and sorry for the gender specific aberration.
no offence intended. lots of good stuff on
there but some just not to my taste. if it's
female singer-songwriters you're after you
could look towards lucinda williams (bit hit
and miss tho), gillian welch (wonderful) and
the mighty natalie merchant. i mind having
a chat with hms g about nm outside a fence
event after she had just played a lovely version
of nanci griffith's lone star state of mind. she
looked at me as if i was a dafty. she's quick
on the uptake that woman. you should check
out my comments on 9 and 14 though, as they
both sound so similar.

Leckers. No offence taken. I will check out your reference to 9 and 14. I do have a Gillian Welch album, but don't think I've listened to it since reading she was the soundtrack to David Cameron's marriage, not that that should really put me off.
Title: Re: club de mix revue
Post by: Leckers on Thu, May 01, 2014, 17:58 PM
oh shit, really? cameron's wedding?
what a pisser. though it shouldn't be
a surprise for his marriage to having
a soundtrack including 'one more dollar',
'the devil got hold of me' and 'ruination
day'. and that's not mentioning 'miner's
refrain'. the cunt.


the first three are amazing - revival, hell
among the yearlings and time are well
recommended.

My mixer was generous enough to make two cds.  Thank goodness for the second. I’m not saying the first disc was awful or that it was unlistenable.  My 20 year old stepson Zak loved it and I’m sure that there are some on the hub who would like it also.  Just not me.  It’s probably a generational issue.

So, I was the mixer of your disc this time around and rather than a soundscape as you received the last time, this time I went for something that I thought might be outside your envelope but with sufficient hooks and samples that there might be something there.  My choice was Hip Hop and as close to the West Coast as possible.  I don’t think its generational, it took me a long time to get into Hip Hop but the craft of taking/sampling the riffs and incorporating them into the wider piece is a skill.  Stick with it and listen to Zac.

Zak is my direct opposite musically.  He cannot stand any of my music, be it Fence, Beatles, Eno, Beach Boys, Neutral Milk Hotel, Iron and Wine or Phosphorescent.

Suffice it to say that he loved Part I enough to save it on his MP3 player and commend me on my maturing taste in music.  Throughout my first (and only) listen, I just wanted to rip off my headphones, bang my head against the wall and run screaming out of the room.

There will be no review of part I, as I do not review until after four listens and cannot bring myself to begin listen number two.

That indeed is a shame.

Disc II – second review attempt.  (I listened to four tracks and loved them all – began to think something was wrong – and realized I was listening to a Dick Gaughan cd by mistake.  Sorry!)

Right, Let’s do it!

1) Off to a good start.  Jamie’s Crying by Van Halen.  Solid Gold classis-rock.  My fingers are crossed … hoping …

1. Is how the disc starts with Tone Loc and Wild Thing, athinly veiled euphemism, for sex.  Great start, nice hook and of course samples Van Halen – Jamie’s Crying.  Apparently, the sample was originally settled for $5000 and the single grossed millions.

2)  Starts off bluesy - but redeemed by the singer.  Nice rhythm, great sound, good beat.  I like this one.  Ashamed to say that I don’t recognize the artist.  A keeper.  Yes.  I liked this one better and better with each playing.

2. I Left My Wallet In El Segundo [Independence Mix] - A Tribe Called Quest.  A remix but we live a good remix don’t we?  This one is a Norman Cook effort and it’s amazing how the original fits in so perfectly with State of Independence by Jon and Vangelis.  It is therefore both Ironic and funny in your response above that after a keeper you emphasize YES.

3)  Too techno for me.  Two listens was enough.  Sorry.   

3. Planet Rock - Afrika Bambaataa & The Soulsonic Force.  The Amen Ra of Hip Hop Kulture, and of course it would be remiss not to have tipped a hat to some of the early influencers of the sound.  Note, Afrika Bambaataa is technically east coast and more electro than hip hop but, these are mere technicalities.  There are a host of samples on this but I went for the obvious teutonic and motorik sample of Trans Europe Express by kraftwerk.  Some would argue that TTE is the epitome of the might kraftwerks canon, you need to give this some more time, this is the past music of the future.

4) Motown 60’s sound.  Cool.  “you scratch like a monkey, yeah you do.  Come on baby.  groove to the Harlem shuffle.  Do the monkeyshine.”  Not bad – 3 of 4 so far!

4. Jump Around [Cypress Hill remix] - House Of Pain.  Another remix and for what the did I trust Cypress Hill were paid minimally for the “remix” duties.  Whiteish, irish hip hop, who’d have thunk it.  The most “pop” of the selections but when I was rolling through California in my escalade with this on the sound system, it was pretty good.  There are three principle samples in this, the most common is the Prince scream from get off but the best is of course the classic soul of Harlem Shuffle by Bob and Earl.  If you ever listen to off the ball, you will hear this every Saturday

5) Nice variety of music here.  Another oldey?  What style is this?  Early Billy Joel meets Pictish?  Another good one.

5. Paper Planes - M.I.A.  Personally, I love this one, apparently paper planes is a is a downtempo rap ballad, with a folk style melody, don’t know about that but the principle sample here is Straight to Hell by the clash.  Billy Joel???  Mick Jones is gonna kick yo ass.

6) Slow romantic blues song.  Yecch.  (smiley)

6. Hell Is Around The Corner – Tricky.  Bristol is almost west coast isn’t it.  Tricky kid with the epitome from his magnificent maxinque debut album, containing a sample also used by fellow Bristolians Portishead, the slow romantic blues track is; Medley: "Ike's Rap II" / "Help Me Love" by Isaac Hayes., Shaft and of course the voice of South Parks Chef.

7. Moving With U - Q-Tip.  Lead singer with a tribe called quest and the number of acts he has worked with reads as almost a who’s who of the hip hop world.  Sadly, no sample I could find on this one.


7) “Pump up the volume – pump up the volume”  NO!  Please don’t!  Another one to give to Zak. I’m afraid.  Just chanting/rapping noise to me.

8. Paid In Full (Seven Minutes of) Madness - Eric B. & Rakim.  It was the coldcut remix of the originaltrack which propelled this one ito the consciousness of the masses.  There are plenty of samples on this and I almost went with Ofra Hazra but instead we went with Pump Up The Volume - M/A/R/R/S.  Us Ukaians know this almost by heart as in 1987 it was never off Top of The Pops and the tite is in itself a sample from I know you git Soul by Eric B and Rakim.

  Now this, at least, is MUSIC, not just chanting.  Son of a Preacherman by (Dusty Springfield?) from 1969-71 era.  I used to like it a little back then.  Compared with Disc I it sounds like a solid 10 now.

9. Hits From The Bong - Cypress Hill.  Stoner hip hop, taking hits from the bong.  This is what I have grown to love about hip hop, the ability to select a classic riff and transpose it into a different context.  Those shuffling beats added to the sampled riff make this an instant classic of its genre.  Of course the sampled riff is from Son Of A Preacher Man - Dusty Springfield, the version presented here is from the BBC sessions rather than the well know original.  Great horns.

9) 2001 soundtrack?  No … I break horses?  No … This one starts with some nice stickwork and a little electronica.  But then the vocalist starts in and he sounds like a drunken American Indian doing a rain dance.  It reminds me of the stuff my niece sends me from Africa.  However - the violin/flute sounding part is exquisite. If you could eliminate the vocals this would be great.   

10. Get Ur Freak On - Missy Elliott.  Hip Hop is of course not all about the boys, Missy “misdemeanor” Elliot on the vocals here.  I think this was the first hip hop, dance bhangra fusion that I heard, never heard on since but I did buy two albums of bhangra covers of classic indie tracks and the pistols, never mind the bollocks.  The sample here is from some german new age dude who goes by the name of Solitude (Karunesh) – Karunesh.  Karunesh is the God of Compassion in Hindi and the would guess that the vocals are either middle eastern or indian.

10) Jezahel by Shirley Bassey.  Haven’t heard this in years.  Fits in well with the mix and I like it.

11. Harder than you think - Public Enemy.  PUBLIC ENEMY no. 1 in Uncle E’s house….Hats off to the masters of the genre.  Chuck D and Flavor Flav doing what they do best.  Heavily samples Jezahel - Shirley Bassey which brings me back to point made in number 9.  In the UK this was heavily used in promoting the Paralympics coverage on C4, very fitting I think.

12. Do You Understand? - Sam Sever And The R.O.T.L.A.  No sample in this one but this little beauty came out on Mo Wax back in the day.  I was going to go with a DJ Shadow track but opted for this one instead.

13. Jungle Brother (urban takeover mix) - Jungle Brothers.  Widely attributed as the pioneers of fusing jazz with hip hop, this is the drum n bass remix by Aphrodite and Mickey Finn and sample the original of itself.  Did Drum n bass ever make it across the pond uncle E?

11) Orchestral.  Classical sounding.  Not up to Prokofiev standards but not bad.  More modern.  Soundtrack?  Good change of pace.

14. Blue Flowers (Prince Paul's So Beautiful Remix) - Dr. Octagon.  Dr. Octagon is a persona of Kool Keith and blue flowers is taken from his concept album Dr. Octagonecologyst, this is te Prince Paul mix, Prince paul being the producer of De La Soul’s, three feet High and Rising album and which samples, 11. II. Allegro - Béla Bartók.  Bartok is considered one the most important composers of the 20th century.

12) Over twelve minutes but I could only listen to about ten seconds.   

15. The Message - Grandmaster Flash & The Furious Five Ft. Melle Mel & Duke Bootee   .  The vehicle which stimulated a lot of the later day social commentary through rap, brilliant stuff and which contains a sample from Super Rappin' No.1 - The Furious Five & Grandmaster Flash. 

Thanks mixer.  You did a lot of work, burning 27 songs, all of which are liked by someone in my family.  Some old ones which I enjoyed hearing again, some new ones which I want to hear more of and some which would destroy my hearing if I ever listened to them, but not your fault that I’m an old WASP fart with limited taste.  And I’m serious, Zak REALLY loved the other ones – he would like to meet you!

No problems, sorry that you couldn’t get anything from it Uncle E.  Stick with it, there are some stone gold classics in there.

I really do intend to have a review posted before the end of the weekend (mainly because I'm off on holiday then...).

These things take time to do properly, though - I really don't want to do one of those "Track 1 - don't know it, like it; Track 2 - don't know it, don't like it" -type "reviews"...

You could at least have had a go at shaming him, it's almost impossible but I for one would like to see you give it a shot.

I could mention that mr nomad was thrilling all and sundry at the gumporium gig with the fabulous tale of how he once scored the winning goal at beefball........but that wouldn't shame him.
I could also mention that he made a cock joke that was neither funny or appropriate in the company of some of st Andrews finest minds (lol)....but that wouldn't shame him.

Not even the daveycanavey/titanic picture would shame him!

But I reckon he's right about the mix review - if someone has taken the time to make and send it, a thorough(ish) review is only fair.

But then some of us take this a bit too seriously   ;) :)

Post by: funky_nomad on Sun, May 11, 2014, 10:39 AM
Ha! In your face, non-believers!!!

Profuse apologies to my mixer for the undue tardiness of this review. I am a bawbag.

1 - Quirky intro piece, kinda like an end of level tune from a late-80's Amiga game. Hadn't heard before, quite liked.

2 - 60's style freakbeat, bit of wurlitzer going on in the background. I suspect a non-English vocalist. Not really my kinda bag - most 60's stuff "sounds" a bit rubbish, doesn't it? The production values just weren't up to the ideas, so everything sounds a bit woolly. The best band of the 60's was Creedence, cos they actually sound like a 70's band. Take that to the bank and cash it.

3 - Big 80's rock guitar intro giving way to plinky-plonk sequencer (Roland?) backing a Germanic vocalist. Imagine if early 80's Tangerine Dream had been responsible for Rock Me Amadeus, it might have sounded a wee bit like this. Which isn't necessarily a bad thing. The fretwankery that pops up again is a bit OTT, though - I think they were going for Stevie Ray Vaughan helping Bowie sound good on Let's Dance, but it ends up more like Steve Stevens spoiling a perfectly good Billy Idol song.

4 - Big, shouty soulful voice over a proto-funky riff and top brass. "Dirty Old Man"? Thanks! Would sound good at Moon Hop, I reckon - I can certainly see Fuctifano busting out his Dad-dancing shapes to this.

5 - Keyboard intro, kinda like the Supertrampy sound that the oh-so arch Metronomy are so fond of using. Slothful vocals from a singer who sounds like he really can't be arsed. The synth strings and slapped bass are a real distraction here - it feels like 3 separate songs mashed up to very poor effect. Nah, this doesn't work at all. "It's all over now"? I wish it was, I really do...

6 - 70's "futuristic-funk" keyboards with French voiceover. Good God, what is this pish? You're having a laugh, right? This might have sounded seminal in certain parts of the French-speaking world, but it really is a pile of old tosh.

7 - More funky riffs giving into retro synth sounds. I'm beginning to detect a bit of a theme here. I quite like this, as it goes - I'd image Zombi or Majeure would have some fun covering this live. Oh, now it's gone all BIG!!! Yep, a definite keeper; love the way this has built from beginning to end.

8 - Drifty, layered picked guitar - not a million miles away from Wiqwar. Oooh, now some glockenspiel, and we're into Remember Remember territory. Bit of cello to go. Nice. Doesn't particularly go anyone, but it's a nice trip nonetheless.

9 - Gentle keyboards giving way to a glitchy beat - sounds a bit like Mum (the Icelandic ones). Now some treated vocoder vocals, which add the square root of hee-haw to what was quite a beguiling wee tune. I hate when people do that. You're not saying anything interesting, and your vocals are rubbish, so just leave the tune to breathe on its own, okay? Shame.

10 - Oooh, someone's found a cupboard full of percussion to play with. Calm down! Now a tune finally emerges. Sounds like a troupe of Polynesians attempting a cover Love To Love You Baby, with Warren Zevon forgetting the keyboard riff to Werewolves Of London in the background. In a draughty school hall. Someone should tell them their harmonies are a bit squiffy on the high notes.

11 - More sequencer action, with gentle plinks and plonks set amongst what sounds like the Harpsichord setting. Bit of bland filler, really, don't love it, don't hate it.

12 - If this isn't Goldfrapp covering Physical by Olivia Newton-John then I should think about retiring. I once saw Goldfrapp live in Perth, of all places - an absolutely captivating, mesmerising frontwoman. The complete epitome of being sexy without necessarily being attractive, if you know what I mean. And I think you do. She ceertainly has her own horn section housed in Funky Towers.

13 - Very brief outro with an atonal finish. Not sure what that was all about.

Phew, we got there, people!!!

Thanks to my mixer for an interesting selection, of which I recognised only 1 tune - that's a good thing, right??? Apart from the odd couple of clunkers in there, it's a mix I can see keeping in the car for the odd spin.

And thanks for the bonus Os Mutantes discs - very topical given the World Cup is just around the corner!

Cheers.

I have received two other discs which I will review in due course.

Shall we now make this the general mix disc review thread?
Title: Re: club de mix revue
Post by: Deegers on Sat, May 31, 2014, 16:31 PM
So, as he never got a review in formal fashion I will do the disc that I received from mr ade first.

I feel safe in admonishing the recipient for not responding.  Mr ade always gives good mixage and to not respond is tres bad form.  This disc is a very world one, JY would like this., I believe.  It’s either a nod to the world cup or the Eurovision, either way let me take on the journey that this mix creates and the locations we visit.


1.   With my collie dog at my feet and a pint of Smithwicks in my hand, the table next to me has a fiddle player and bloke picking a guitar the crack of the Irish has ceased and as I look across the pub everyone is living out their own personal lament as we listen intently and reflectively to this one.

2.   The cold winter chill bites through my coat as I walk down htis run down Newcastle street.  There used to be a working community here but it is sadly long gone and the scars of a community dying from its labours long past but proudly remembered are sound-tracked by the unthanks.

3.   The crackling of the open camp fire around which we are gathered is abruptly interrupted as the accordion and washboard percussionist strike up a jaunty tune, the heavily moustached violinist next to me joins in and the dusky lady, dazzling in her long flowing dress starts singing a paean to the old times and the trials of being a traveller.  We all take a deep draw from our gauche cigarettes and blow smoke out into the cold Brittany evening.

4.   And then without a bat of an eyelid we are fusing the old with the new, samplers and synths are deployed with the fiddler playing and the younger travellers around us adding subtle modern magic to an old fiddle tune.  We meet in a place where the new respects the old.

5.   After the quiet of the siesta and after the sun sets, the latino infused marimbas and the collective choir of ladies light up this South American evening.  There is clapping and there is jesting, a single voice within the choir engages with the crowd who have gathered to take in the spectacle, whisky Stephen raises a glass and we drink in the rhythm of the moon hop.

6.   Lagos at night is one hell of a funky town.  It’s a mishmash of 70’s disco and the muscle shores horns, the dancing around me is as intense as the atmosphere, this is a pastiche of the 70’s/80’s clubs of NYC where anything goes and quite often does.

7.   The drunk next to me at the bar has just collapsed and there seems to be chaos around me as closing time is called.  Small town America exposes all the creatures of the night.  We are the disaffected.  The singer on the stage is recounting a dialogue between the mating rituals of men and women.  With too much drink in our systems, its clear the jocko males around me don’t get it.

8.   So we leave the bar and, you know what we feel a bit peckish, but all around us are sky high neon signs that advertise the fast food industry, and music to our ears there is a busker belting out his admonishment of the corporation that uses the golden arches as its giant attractor.  It sounds like it could be a pastiche of gummi bako but he is safe back in Scotland., we agree and go looking for a kebab instead.

9.   Passing through the slums of parkhead we are in a part of Glasgow that is undergoing transition.  And at its heart is the mecca of the stadium in which the Glasgow Celtic FC play, our tickets are in the northern stand and all around us is chaos, Welcome to the Jungle is the chant.

10.   Eastern Europe rocks! Freed from the constraints of the historical oppression of the iron curtain, there is a modern vibe, which resonates, the historical is given a modern feel and the bad in this bar rock out a local tune in a very western style.

11.   Wigan Pier, why on earth is this place called Wigan pier?  We are at least 60 miles from the coast and there is nary a beach in sight.  The cold “Manchester” rain drizzles endlessly on our heads but the buzz of the mod influenced dancers in their brogues and their shrink to fit Levi’s is palpable.

12.   Around me the males are drinking alcohol and eating botanas, the boys in the corner are playing cards and dominos and the small stage to my right is slowly being populated by a ramshackle collection of mariachi dressed individuals with horns.  This could end in disaster but from the opening beats of the drummer and a baseline from which Marvin would be very much impressed we are encouraged to 8 mins .,of sexual healing.  Now if only there were some women here!

13.   This subterranean bar could be anywhere in the world but the feel is very much western European.  The audience is very much male and we are very much introspective, looking into out beers and shots, but being encouraged to engage with our thoughts, it’s a dark environment with a dark vibe.

14.   London is without doubt a global mish mash of cultures and fusions.  It is a bastion of times passed, a sabre of paradise, but in which many external influences have been adopted.  The sound systems reverberate around us as we pass through Brixton, dub culture and a nod to Wilmot reign supreme.

15.   The albert hall stands proud as a location for classical music.  We are ushered inside and the most beautiful music starts to be played.  Our minds appreciate the chord and the playing but there is a modern, take on this beats and textures that we are not overly familiar with, are we in the albert hall or immersed in a Clint Mansell soundtrack?

16.   Ibiza is both tranquil and hedonistic but at sunset we head to the Café Del mar, sip a cold one and gaze out to the Mediterranean as the sun sets.  The DJ aids and abets us as e relax and soak in the beautiful sight through shimmering electronics and relaxing sounds.

17.   It well past midnight and the chimes of the music brings us acutely out of our festivity-fueled slumber.  The lady on the stage is sirenesque in her delivery and the melodic  modern accompaniment reminds us that we are not in the UK but abroad and absorbing the culture.

18.   Tokyo, is a complex town, it is a collection of different cultures and sounds, it draws on all sorts of influences, esp. those of London and the UK.  The karaoke has thankfully been turned off and  the heavily sampled public service broadcasting from the UK hits a resonant chord.


As ever, nice mix Ade, thanks for a journey through different styles cultures and music.

I hope my review did it proud!

You're just jealous, cock.

Yes, thanks DGS, a very incisive set of speculations. Some wildly wrong, some inadvertently on the "Nose".
I tried hard to match this mix to its recipient, and the artists performing tracks 1 to 17 spell out the name of track 18.

1.   With my collie dog at my feet and a pint of Smithwicks in my hand, the table next to me has a fiddle player and bloke picking a guitar the crack of the Irish has ceased and as I look across the pub everyone is living out their own personal lament as we listen intently and reflectively to this one.
But no, it is Scotch Beer you should be drinking for this is from there.
Albeit performed by a scot on a Norwegian fiddle and a Norwegian Blue grass afficianado
1) Culloden Waltz  Juhani Silvola, Sarah-Jane Summers

2.   The cold winter chill bites through my coat as I walk down htis run down Newcastle street.  There used to be a working community here but it is sadly long gone and the scars of a community dying from its labours long past but proudly remembered are sound-tracked by the unthanks.
These three do smoothly glide into one another.
You got this one right of course.
2) Monkey Dung Man       The Unthanks

3.   The crackling of the open camp fire around which we are gathered is abruptly interrupted as the accordion and washboard percussionist strike up a jaunty tune, the heavily moustached violinist next to me joins in and the dusky lady, dazzling in her long flowing dress starts singing a paean to the old times and the trials of being a traveller.  We all take a deep draw from our gauche cigarettes and blow smoke out into the cold Brittany evening.
Ah, mais c'est cajun, mon cher ami. Bien sur, une femme d'une famille des Bon Accordionists.
3) Eunice, Louisiana  Sarah Savoy

4.   And then without a bat of an eyelid we are fusing the old with the new, samplers and synths are deployed with the fiddler playing and the younger travellers around us adding subtle modern magic to an old fiddle tune.  We meet in a place where the new respects the old.
Yes. One of the great bands from the Romanian gypsy brotherhood. See their interpretation of the classics.
Perhaps I can belatedly claim this as an antiFaragian blow. Romany and Brit in Unison.
4) Homecoming        Taraf de Haïdouks/Tunng

5.   After the quiet of the siesta and after the sun sets, the latino infused marimbas and the collective choir of ladies light up this South American evening.  There is clapping and there is jesting, a single voice within the choir engages with the crowd who have gathered to take in the spectacle, whisky Stephen raises a glass and we drink in the rhythm of the moon hop.
Remarkably African soundng, isn't it? Yet it's from Colombia.
Yes. Whisky Stephen, indeed.
5) Homenaje a Justino      Grupo Socavon

6.   Lagos at night is one hell of a funky town.  It’s a mishmash of 70’s disco and the muscle shores horns, the dancing around me is as intense as the atmosphere, this is a pastiche of the 70’s/80’s clubs of NYC where anything goes and quite often does.
The hot new global fusion sound. I do wish there were translations or even english language versions, as the stories sound like they'd be amazing.
6) The Talking Fish (Asem Usem Iyak)       Ibibio Sound Machine

7.   The drunk next to me at the bar has just collapsed and there seems to be chaos around me as closing time is called.  Small town America exposes all the creatures of the night.  We are the disaffected.  The singer on the stage is recounting a dialogue between the mating rituals of men and women.  With too much drink in our systems, its clear the jocko males around me don’t get it.
Another one I could retroactively claim to be "current affairs". But no, the furore about the young man who could not get a date ("date") has shown there are plenty of men who don't get it and that's why they don't get "it".
7) Girls Say      Vic Chesnutt

8.   So we leave the bar and, you know what we feel a bit peckish, but all around us are sky high neon signs that advertise the fast food industry, and music to our ears there is a busker belting out his admonishment of the corporation that uses the golden arches as its giant attractor.  It sounds like it could be a pastiche of gummi bako but he is safe back in Scotland., we agree and go looking for a kebab instead.
I have often pointed out that GB reminded me of this man when I first heard him. Gonzo jazz and hard hitting political lyrics aside. This one goes back to my first year in London. Today I saw a pub in Kings Norton that has been "Maccy D'ed" Sad times.
8) Better Comin' Out Than Goin' In       Eugene Chadbourne

9.   Passing through the slums of parkhead we are in a part of Glasgow that is undergoing transition.  And at its heart is the mecca of the stadium in which the Glasgow Celtic FC play, our tickets are in the northern stand and all around us is chaos, Welcome to the Jungle is the chant.
That's just mean. And you didn't mention this was the infinitely sexier welcome of Etta James.
9) Welcome to the Jungle      Etta James   

10.   Eastern Europe rocks! Freed from the constraints of the historical oppression of the iron curtain, there is a modern vibe, which resonates, the historical is given a modern feel and the bad in this bar rock out a local tune in a very western style.
Yeah, many military bands used to secretly practice western music, ska and rock n roll being popular.
And here's another Gypsy band that someone heard when Romania was a dark transylvanian communist state.
Great times had when they meet up with Taraf Do Haidouks :-)
They have a song about Red Bull too. Balkan Beat Box and Gogol Bordello's leaders have introduced Mrs Heathen and I to some exciting bands.
10) L' Homme Qui Boit (The Man Who Drinks)       Mahala Rai Banda

11.   Wigan Pier, why on earth is this place called Wigan pier?  We are at least 60 miles from the coast and there is nary a beach in sight.  The cold “Manchester” rain drizzles endlessly on our heads but the buzz of the mod influenced dancers in their brogues and their shrink to fit Levi’s is palpable.
It does have an out on the floor vibe, but this is more Booker T Funk than Northern Soul. And heavy references the Lennonesque lyrics. A B side from Karl Wallinger's more Prince-oriented days.
11) World Groove (Do The Mind Guerilla)      World Party

12.   Around me the males are drinking alcohol and eating botanas, the boys in the corner are playing cards and dominos and the small stage to my right is slowly being populated by a ramshackle collection of mariachi dressed individuals with horns.  This could end in disaster but from the opening beats of the drummer and a baseline from which Marvin would be very much impressed we are encouraged to 8 mins .,of sexual healing.  Now if only there were some women here!
Class tune, Classy band, Shake your class and the Classy women will follow.
12) Sexual Healing       Hot 8 Brass Band

13.   This subterranean bar could be anywhere in the world but the feel is very much western European.  The audience is very much male and we are very much introspective, looking into out beers and shots, but being encouraged to engage with our thoughts, it’s a dark environment with a dark vibe.
Colorado. Micro label collective Blank Tape Records focus around Haunted Windchimes, but this guys is a creative tour de force like our very own Mr King Creolesot.
13) Little Ghost      Inaiah Lujan
http://blanktaperecords.org/

14.   London is without doubt a global mish mash of cultures and fusions.  It is a bastion of times passed, a sabre of paradise, but in which many external influences have been adopted.  The sound systems reverberate around us as we pass through Brixton, dub culture and a nod to Wilmot reign supreme.
http://www.whosampled.com/sample/578/Shantel-Bucovina-Wilmoth-Houdini-Black-but-Sweet/
http://www.whosampled.com/sample/577/The-Sabres-of-Paradise-Wilmot-Wilmoth-Houdini-Black-but-Sweet/
But yeah Sabres probably did inspire this Germanic bearer of great Balkan beats.
And now I have incovered some fine remixes.
It's only like Western Europe because NIGEL FARAGE says so.
14) Bucovina [Omfo Dub]      Shantel

15.   The albert hall stands proud as a location for classical music.  We are ushered inside and the most beautiful music starts to be played.  Our minds appreciate the chord and the playing but there is a modern, take on this beats and textures that we are not overly familiar with, are we in the albert hall or immersed in a Clint Mansell soundtrack?
More Accordion. This time the crazy finns with strings of Time.
Had not made the Mansell connection, but it's definitely there.
15) Plasma       Kimmo Pohjonen, Samuli Kosminen; Kronos Quartet

16.   Ibiza is both tranquil and hedonistic but at sunset we head to the Café Del mar, sip a cold one and gaze out to the Mediterranean as the sun sets.  The DJ aids and abets us as we relax and soak in the beautiful sight through shimmering electronics and relaxing sounds.
I discovered this band just ahead of the curve, because a nice young lady asked if she could take a photo of me for a painting (fully clothed, in a busy pub, sorry ladies) and it turned out to be the woman who painted the cover of this album by EIY and I liked it a lot. I might have to buy that picture. Dorian Gray /Adrian Brown. Geddit?
Anyway, proof that Shoreditch is not all hipster trash.
16) GLITTER RECESSION       East India Youth

17.   It well past midnight and the chimes of the music brings us acutely out of our festivity-fueled slumber.  The lady on the stage is sirenesque in her delivery and the melodic  modern accompaniment reminds us that we are not in the UK but abroad and absorbing the culture.
In the film Only Lovers Left Alive, they go to a bar in Tangier to watch a singer.
It is Yasmine, who has emerged from the electronic pop of the Middle East to create this sort of beautiful sound.
I am going to see her perform in a couple o' weeks. I hope Tom Hiddleston and Tilda Swinto are there to enjoy it too.
17) Ya Nass      Yasmine Hamdan

18.   Tokyo, is a complex town, it is a collection of different cultures and sounds, it draws on all sorts of influences, esp. those of London and the UK.  The karaoke has thankfully been turned off and  the heavily sampled public service broadcasting from the UK hits a resonant chord.

These guys INVENTED sampling.
Well, the kind you are alluding to.
PSB are good, but will never be as cool as Colourbox.
Samples The Prisoner, 2001 and Westworld :-)
Has Joan Collins saying "sex makes your skin glow and your eyes sparkle"
Jeez, this is 30 years old!
18) A track by Colourbox.

Thanks for taking the time to review this.
I went for a filmic travelogue effect and you latched onto that. Starting at home and being like a modern reworking of Wim Wenders' Until The End Of The World.
I get told off for all the foreign language songs, but figured the chap ...
or woman that this was intended for would know some of the sounds. And enjoy it.

I'm waiting on a reveal, but no biggie given I was a bit late with my review.

First time I have ever done this, so I am glad you liked it. I felt bad as i sent it, as my cd came with a homemade cover and there was obviously a bit of effort put into it. I was running so late, I just stuck it in an envelope and sent it off.

Regarding the mix, I received... Sorry I haven't left a review, but I am enjoying it and playing it in the car a lot. Everyone in the car gave out a cheer, when the first track had my name in the lyrics!

The only problem is that the songs are all combined as track 1, so whenever the car is turned off, the cd goes back to the beginning, meaning I am hearing a lot more of the earlier tracks. We're off this weekend, so will try to do a review, but rest assured, the cd got a thumbs up from me!

You need a longer car journey  ;)
Couldn't resist making that the first song on the CD given your forum name. They started out as individual tracks with a link between each one but it wasn't working so, staying true to the spirit of Flo, I merged them into one long track.
If you want another copy with individual tracks just let me know - glad you like it :)

Disaster! Your cd is broken. I know it was a while ago, but any chance I could get another copy?
