Rather than those shitty albums with "driving tunes" or "cool tunes"?
primary audience. drivers. drivers dont like post-rock, people!
what I do is drive for about 7 minutes at about 10mph and then suddenly crank it up to 100mph and zoom about for a few minutes before slowly pootling to a halt.
a little bit too much at this.
i'd love a post-rcok compilation with hammond face on itq
A Jon Spencer Blues Explosion B-side on there before and Kraftwerk. At lease someone in their office has taste.
because it's nearly christmas and people wouldn't buy it unless it had the usual garbage on it you find on all those comps, they've got to compete with 'Now That's What I Call Christmas' and the X Factor, that isn't going to be successful with post-rock and Kraftwerk
..and put the full version of Autobahn on a compilation.
"What do you meant it's 25 minutes long?"
"It's about driving on the motorway"
"I don't care, we can put Golden Earring on 5 times and still have room for Dead ringer for love in that time"
In fact the more I think about it, it must be in Clarkson's contract to choose the xmas album tracklist.
that do all the post production for them, the have a one serious cd collection.
They've used loads of Boards of Canada
Because that would take all the fun out of watching Top Gear, hearing something brilliant under a bit of tyre squeal and powerslide and Clarkson's boorish foghorn voice and thinking "shit, what is that, I need it!" and finding it on the internet, and remembering that's just one of the reasons Top Gear is the only thing worth paying the BBC's exhorbitant license fees for.
Because people don't actually like the music they play on the programme. They like the 10 seconds or so that they hear. They don't care about the rest.
