Andy

King Of The Aubergines



About Me

Money makes some people's world go round. I work in sales. I have to pretend money makes my world go round.

It doesn't.

Music does.

But don't tell my boss.

I love being introduced to new things and listening to stuff i've not heard in years. I go to far too many gigs and take far too many photographs (normally at the same time)

Hi Andy! Just got your message. Thanks! Looking forward to getting the mix. I just clicked the button to say I'd received it since it's on its way and I don't want to get you in trouble with the Big Mixtape Boss or anything. Ha ha. Anyway, no stress, excited to listen whenever it arrives.

Hey Andy, Just recieved your IMP mix today, I've been listening to it all day. If you don't mind I would like the track list for the mix. Thank you so much! :)

Hi Andy. Your January mix is a smooth soulful affair and is on it's way to you from London. I realise this might not be quite your cup of tea (judging by your list of likes) but if you give it a chance I think it could really grow on you!

jill

your mix is on its way across the pond.

Randy

The March Mix is on it's way from the USA. Sorry it's late.

jill

Tag, you're it. Just received you as the next recipient of a delectable musical mix. Looking at your taste in music, I think this should be fun! --J

Joshua

Hey! Just got your Feb. mix today and am about half way through it. I'm too broke to sign up for another installment of Imp and to send mixes, so this will probably be my last one received for a bit, but so far, it's pretty damn nice, and I am a bit of a mix cd snob, so props to you. :) Thanks.

Laurin

Did you send me a mix that ended with a Ronald Dahl segment? If so, you are 100% my most favorite mix tape person ever. Honestly. That's like a five year compliment in the making. If that wasn't your CD, I'm sure I liked yours too (and um sometimes I'm bad for losing the bits of paper associated with the CDs people send me.)

stanley

hello, you mentioned that I should check out Frank Turner. Which album to start?

Sean

Thanks for the update Andy. I am looking forward to it and glad to hear that you enjoyed my mix.

Jessica

Just dropped your mix in the mail today. Sorry for the tardiness! Jess

Laurin

Funny I never ever check my comments. But I looked at it today so . . . Woo hoo, I have a mix in the mail. Thanks! Look forward to it.

Brian

Hi Andy, I haven't got a chance to listen to your mix yet (as I'm outta the country) but look forward to listening to it and letting ye know how I found it!! Thanks.

William

Hi Andy - the mix is complete and I will post it tomorrow. Sorry to be late in sending. -Bill

Cat

Glad the mixes finally arrived Andy - and yeah, SMS is a real earworm...hmmm perhaps an idea for my next mix theme? I hope you and your co-workers aren't being driven insane!

stanley

I'll be sending the July mix to you this week sometime. My printer is on the fritz so I had to hand write the track listing. Pardon my lack of penmanship. Also I was out of cd cases, so I had to tape together two pieces from a microwave meal box. Pardon my all around sloppiness. I'm no arts and crafts dude, that's for sure. Hope the music is better than the cover.

Cat

Thanks for being cool about my procrastination Andy! Happy Monday!

Cat

Sorry to be so late with your June mix - just getting it in the mail now!

Carolina
