Ross, thanks so much for the Glam mix! It's really a lot of fun. Sorry I didn't get back to you sooner, but I wasn't able to give it a good listen right away. I've put it on my mp3 player and it's become part of my regular subway commute rotation. There are some really interesting choices that I'd never heard (The Darkness, that Brian Eno track, "Cherry Bomb"), and some that are always just plain fun to hear (Bowie, New York Dolls, Suzi, T. Rex, and SLADE of course). "Ballroom Blitz" is a perennial fave of course, and I swear I can't remember the last time I'd listened to "Shattered," which blew me away all over again. Anyway, thanks again for the great extracurricular mix action. Good stuff!


I knew a girl in college who was way too cool for me to date. She worked for the campus radio station and introduced my clueless soul to The Wolfgang Press, Ride, Eno, James, A Tribe Called Quest, and post-Genesis pre-Suckage Peter Gabriel. I could never pay her back, but once I did hold her hair while she was sick at a party.


Yeah, I know the Tool secret tracks - man, you should see how many I went through to get it down to one cd. Loads I wanted to include because they're weird or funny, but they don't stand up to repeat listens that much. I do these things for longevity to some extent. Sometimes.

Hey Ross, glad you're enjoying the extracurricular harpsichord action! Of course, since making it, I've heard like a million suitable songs that would've been perfect to include. Maybe a second volume needs to happen??? Hmmmm... I'm really looking forward to the glam! I will be sure to wear extra eyeliner and sequined spandex next week.


heyyy i really enjoyed your mix. what genius to put chapelle and patsy cline on the same mix! bob mould went to my school, too... anyway, liked it a lot, and thanks for adding such personal touches.
