Mixtapes

kiss all your fingers

music with the bark still on it

a song for listening to at night-time when you can't sleep...the last song of the party before the last stalwarts go to bed...a song for a winters evening...a song you stole from an ex...a childish song...a soundtrack to twilight...wrath in song form...a booze song...an ode to...a somewhat sinister love song...a song to guide you home...a song that is outrageously uplifting in your personal opinion...a song to dance around the kitchen to...a song that impressed you into asking what it was...a soundtrack to picking up the pieces...a song performed by an artist who isn't the artist who made it famous...a song you would play to someone you fancy to impress them...a song so beautiful you might just explode...a song which mentions a type of animal in the lyrics...a song for a new lover...the ultimate finale...

soft flats and sweet music

take 3 steps forward & bow your head

heart beats

love lust loss longing loathing

The Nightmare Before Christmas

Seasons Hauntings

Steve

Nell, I used the holiday weekend to do your May mix and it'll go out in tomorrow's mail.

*Martin

Hey Nell - hope all's well. just got Ryan's message that you're running late with my april mix. I was pleased to see that it's coming from you as your muthafunking mix that you did for me a while back is one of my favourite ever IMP mixes. No worries on the delay, take all the time you need.

Sean

Nell, sorry you haven't received your mix yet. I will gladly send you another mix this week and check up on the delivery. I still enjoy the music with bark still on it mix you gave me some time ago. seanvmcmonagle@sbcglobal.net

Just got your December mix last night. Love the artwork...will give it a listen today and let you know what I think. Thanks!

Mark

I did actually get your mix a couple weeks ago. I thought you mighta peeked at my hard drive to see what I like. My personally favorite genres all wrapped into one. Even had some versions of songs (reggae ones have so many) that I did not have. Definely worth rippin'. Much Thanks. You ever want to do a side trade, just holla'.

Kavokei

Love your October mixtape - thanks a million!

Great Sept mixtape! Thanks much!

Walter

Hi Nellie, glad to hear the Sept mix had a positive effect. Always up for a side swap. Cheers, Walter

Walter

Hi Nellie, just letting you know your Sept mix has left the Antipodes and is hurtling your way even as I type.

Alan

Hi Nellie. I just wanted to let you know that I'm an awful person and that your July mix will be shipping tomorrow. That's right. July. Apologies. Many, many apologies.

Jon

Cornelius

Hello Nellie Nora Rose! Do not despair, for I am your late May Mixer. I sent your package on the second of June so I hope it gets across the Atlantic by this week. I sent you 2 discs to make up for the tardiness of my late-ness. Take care! Praise DIO!

*Martin

Morning Nellie - your CD arrived yesterday and I've just had a very funky journey into work! It's put me in a great mood and considering I'm at work that's a huge accomplishment! I've already got most of the tracks but the mix works really well so I guarantee it will get plenty of plays and I love the cover art too! Thanks very much :)

*Martin

Hey Nellie, so glad you liked my funk mix. It's so damn soulful I had to be sure that I was sending it to just the right discernable listener and then you popped up in my assignment history and I knew you were THE ONE...and thanks for the side-trade offer. I would love to sample your mutha funkin mix! Can you let me have your email so that I can send you my address. In return, take your pick from my profile :) Cheers Martin

*Martin

Hi your march mix went in the post from london today (29th March) I guess you'll have it in a day or so. Hope you like it! Cheers Martin

James

I've only heard the first two songs but this is already tons better/more my style than most of the CDs I've rec'd in quite a while. Thanks for the thoughtful mix. Take a look at my mixes and let me know if you want to do a side trade. Either way, no worries.

darren

Got my January mixtape - Candy Staton was a belter, but I loved the whole thing... good work!

Laura

OMG. Best mixtape ever!!!! I am in love with the side trade you sent me. It fits my mood perfectly. Thanks!!! I'll be sending yours out hopefully by Friday.

Laura

I love Soko! Would you be up for a side trade?

Martin

Elly, posted my December mix to you, its a sort of review of my music year containing a minimix celebrating the 30th anniversary of the Floyds "The Wall" - then some favourite studio tracks followed by some live highlights. Hope you enjoy it

Sean

Got your mix plus the bonus mix; thank you! Enjoying them both and at a loud volume!

Andy

Glad you enjoyed the mix Elly. I had taken an IMP hiatus for a few years and this was my first one back in the mix saddle. Took a song at random - so happened to be Bonabo - and just went from there.

Simeon

Sorry the postman lost your last mix. I'm on my hols at the moment, but you should get a replacement in a week to 10 days.

Sarah

Cat Power. Covering Michael Hurley. Sweet Jesus. Your mix is, was and ever shall be mind-numbingly good. I especially liked The Tallest Man on Earth. Also everything else. Keep up the good work!
