So. How was it for you?
It was top notch. Full of stuff I'd never heard and will be on the lokout for. I've listened to it quite a bit over the past month or so on my commute and the tracks from it have risen up my Last.fm charts.
The mix itself was as rich as a marble bath full of used £20 bank notes covered in Lyle's Golden Syrup. And just as sleazy. It was well sequenced and felt like the soundtrack to a filthy, dusty, gangster film.
Good work, douchbag.
If anyone hasn't sent theirs yet, what better time for goodwill and giving than Christmas?

Honestly, your CD is still sat atop my "to listen to" pile. To be fair i only change the CD in my player once a week, so it's not getting the short shrift compared to other stuff. I'll stick it on this weekend, definitely
and Shipmo, i'll upload it to mediafire tonight so you can have a listen. You've probably heard some of the jams, but you might find some gems in there as well
Please validate me. :-)
i have no idea where i've put it. I was looking for it last week but nothing.. it's like it just disappeared off the face of the earth
Well technically, it's like my room is a feckin pigsty and i really need to have a tidy. I'll keep you posted :D
Please validate me. ;-P
i found it a while back and it spent a good few days living in my CD player. Some great music on there, on the first half in particular.. Handsome Boy Modelling School, Whale, Juice Aleem, Linton Kwesi Johnson, all very well dug. And the Nina Simone track at the end is a real beauty
Excellent stuff, and much appreciated
Glad there was some stuff in there for yers. Just enough songcraft managing to show its face amongst the general raggedy-round-the-edges-ness. That wa the plan, anyways.
Yours still gets played now'n'again (it still dominates my most played tracklisting on last.fm).
We should have a 2010 re-run sometime soon.
Made the mix but didn't have a cdR to burn it at the time. Then completely forgot. Didn't receive anything either though.
I'll get on it this weekend, I've got nothing better to do.
Don't worry deadonthestairs, you will receive it soon!
except vamos instead of deadonthestairs
I'm actually going to create it now, in work. SMASH THE SYSTEM.
Did you like it Victory_Rose or is it on the 'To do' pile?
I have high exppectations.
not so fond of the first few tracks but when you get to the Scottish folkey songs it becomes really good, I even ordered the Lord Cut Glass s/t album after listening to it (although it still hasn't arrived, guess that's karma)
I had a feeling you would like that part more as I peeked at your LastFM page. But as I've been listening to more rockin' stuff this year I thought I'd include a spread in case you ever go through a torturous break up and want to break things.
Karma eh? Not very fair is it?
This is the first time this has happened. It'll get done. So very ashamed
I got mine (from gcub2004 I think), it was really good and came in sweet packaging. I have finally got my desktop computer up and running, and then even made the beginnings of a playlist, but that's as far as it's got.
im still waiting tho :D
"next week", yeah?
Unfortunately I asked 'gcub2004' what his name was for posting, and he just gave me his first name. It started with a 'g', so I've assumed that his surname is 'Cub'. However, it could be 'Cub2004'. It's difficult to tell these days.
I also sent another copy to a DiSer who sent me an iTrip in the post because I was asking about them and he had a spare one sitting in his drawer :D I feel like I may have got the better end of this deal... !
it can have a bonus christmas track now
Mine was from PeeVee and we had a HORROR theme because of the Halloween proximity. I was provided with a nice mix of Melvins, Lightning Bolt, Dillinger, Why?, Horse The Band and lots of stuff/bands I'd never heard of singing about horror/spooky things and some of the music which I think was from the original Dawn of the Dead. Also the packaging was handmade with a skeleton dancing on the front. On the back commanderboobs had drawn a boner. :D
yours was awesome too :D the zombie pikachu cover was amazing (mad paint skillz) and there was tonnes of stuff i'd never heard but was awesome (BATS, Arnocorps, Duran Duran Duran), and some stuff that i have heard but was still awesome (Pig Destroyer, RFTC, LESS THAN JAKE - oh yeah)
one of my favourite mixes i have received off this here site.
Lots of bands that I'd never got around to listening to - Esben and the Witch, Hauschka, Shearwater, Scout Niblet. Thanks again Lyserge! The pic of the Colonel made me giggle.
I've not been that hot on following up the bands that I really liked, but the CD itself's been seeing plenty of spins. Cheers!
sorrysorrysorry my other computer spazzered out and wouldn't let me burn anything or recognise memory sticks. but it shall be done soon, WHEN IT GETS FIX'D
i really loved the one i got too.
i'm a dick.
actually, i've been saving it so she gets it just in time for christmas, yeah?
I feel really bad since I've gotten mine & all. MUST GET DONE.
What did you think by the way?
I tried to cater it to your Last fm account, you know, stuff you didn't have on there, that was kinda like the stuff on there.
But mine's at - http://soundcloud.com/sheq/mixtape-2009
