Give it a listen. It's going to be sad to see it go...
It's worth it.

Twocsinak & DJ Sarah Wilson:
I Know I Have no Input (2'46")
Army of Me (2'37")
Joseph Howard Grounds is DJ Sarah Wilson is Twocsinak, a tall, self-effacing young man/woman/nurse/artist residing in Bristol, UK. In the mischievous spirit of Matmos, People Like Us and ingenious comedic pariahs Noble & Silver, this album features chance-flaw music from a human with an enviable lexicon of lateral thought, made in admirable ignorance of this century's advancements in technology. Each of its 18 tracks is at the very least conceptually tethered to a pun, out-joke, song by a notable other or beautifully mundane encounter rendered in real-time on a minidisc player.
Album: "Jesus is a Brave Little Toaster"

On The Rooftops of London (19'45")

People Like Us makes an ongoing experimental arts radio show on WFMU, called "DO or DIY", which, since it began in 2003, has had over a quarter of a million Realplayer hits.

Their music combines jazz style drums and space style electronic effects, distorted guitars and wind instruments as well as a prominent use of the bass guitar. The group consists of Ohad Benchetrit (guitar, bass, saxophone, flute), David Mitchell (drums), James Payment (drums), Justin Small (guitar) and Charles Spearin (bass, guitar, trumpet).

ReMixing It (5'16")
is from my neck of the woods on the Isle of Wight I think. He's played out alot down here. Haven't heard him yet but he's highly regarded.
Lots of other cool tracks too, like a new DMST. I'll tune in.
Is that there is plenty which is unheard anywhere else. It'll be interesting to hear Basquiat Strings.
And it's going to be gone after tonight, I might cry.
the Basquiat Strings one. Sudden Infant was great too.
be the best cover ever, it's actually amazing.
is great! :D
But I don't think I'd ever listen to it outside of Mixing It.
Which is/was part of Mixing It's appeal really. You were made to hear things which you'd never hear anywhere else.
I agree, there would be no chance of me encountering most of the songs being played tonight. I'll miss it...
Being a silly Fall fan means I'm happy at the choice of final song, although they could have picked a better Fall song...
Gosh, it's the end of an era. :-(
Still, I'm sending one more email to the BBC in hope that they will ACTUALLY LISTEN.
There is no point in scrapping it. Nobody needs 'Jazz Library'. Jazz on 3 does the business well enough (which, incidentally is nicely placed after Mixing It)
The BBC are rubbish.
