About Me

Name: James

Location: Preston, Lancashire, UK

What I do during the day: IT stuff.

How I like to spend my free time: Playing, reading, playing the piano and having fun with my son. Also reading books, messing about with music software on my laptop or looking up stuff on t'interweb. Trips out and time spent with my wife and son, catching up with friends, and going on the occasional mini-adventure.

My favourite places: Tanzania/Zanzibar, Lesotho, Fiji, New Zealand and California. Closer to home, The Lake District, Beacon Fell and various other random locations.

Things I like: Listening to (and occasionally making) music. Learning new stuff. Strong black coffee (Mmmmm... looooove coffee). Making plans. Getting out in the fresh air. Pottering around and thinking about stuff. Doodling and drawing mind maps. Challenging myself to do things I've never done before. Good food (perhaps a little too much). Things that fly. Having 'projects' to work on. Spontaneous journeys or nights out. Good manners. Physics. Sleep.

Favorite Songs

I'm not sure that I'd know where to start with putting together a definitive list... I'll have a think.

Favorite Artists

I like just about every type of music, and I'll give any music a try - although I tend to avoid Simon Cowell's or David Foster's spheres of influence, or similar. I tend to prefer music that was created because someone felt they had something to say; music with a bit of emotion...

Favorite Albums

Recent Concerts

I was supposed to see Lou Rhodes on 30 Nov 09, but swine flu thwarted my plans. Saw Schwervon! and The Lovely Eggs in Dec 09. So far this year, I've seen Memory Tapes + Visions Of Trees, Idlewild + Sparrow And The Workshop, Dan Le Sac vs Scroobius Pip, Alondra Bentley supporting Josh Rouse

IMP December 2009

A Winter-themed mix, but not a Christmas mix. At this time of year, things can get a bit hectic, and we don't get chance to appreciate the natural beauty of winter - this is quite a contemplative and relaxed mix, a soudtrack for the great wintery outdoors...

Airline Mix Part 2

Part 2 is designed to gently and gradually wake you up again at the end of your long flight, and hopefully get you ready to take on whatever you need to do after your arrival.

Airline Mix Part 1

Hopefully a mix to help you fall asleep on a long flight...

Wouldn't you know it? One day later, your package arrived! THE MOTHERLODE! Can't wait to dig into all this goodness. So much I've never heard of before. Cheers, my friend!


Hey Kavokei! I haven't been to the site in a while, so I'm not sure when you messaged me last. Sorry to say I haven't received anything from you lately. When was the last time you sent something? It's funny, I recently remarked how I couldn't think of a bad band from Scotland! Hope to hear from you soon. Cheers!


Glad you liked my mix! Yeah I keep my whole IMP collection in the car (my mixes and the ones sent to me.) That way if anyone ever tries to steal my CD case, well it won't be super exciting. I mean maybe it's super great . . . But it's not super exciting to just get burned discs.


I am so glad the mix arrived safely! I hope you continue to enjoy! Best wishes! Lauren


Hi James, I sent your mix over the weekend. For some reason the 1st line of your address did not appear in the email assigning you to me, so I did not include it on the envelope : ( I hope it gets to you okay. If it doesn't please let me know! Best wishes.


Hi James Yes it did arrive and I do enjoy it.I plane to put it my 5 CD player where it will be in heavy rotation.Please feel free to drop me a line if you want to do a side trade my Email address is trishmull77@comcast.net
