same ol' mish mash.... best ever riff from the buzzcocks(see just by radiohead and shot by both sides from magazine for comparison)

pots and pans

big old mess this one

here comes the summer

i was naughty last month... a bit late. the vinyl slipped on here messes up the levels a bit, so keep your finger on the volume. 50 cent and Modest Mouse is a fun mash up, as is Doves and David Essex...

May 2007 IMP

I got vinyl onto to the cd....it's a pain in the arse, and i apologise for the dodgy sound levels. I managed to get Prince (via mash-up) and The Fall on here again....

and tom doesn't posse any acid

another laptop mix. i hope the recipient likes reggae, i was in that kind of mood. once again, a fall track, and one from prince...i wonder if i can keep that up?

march 2007

Hiya Darren. I'm the doofus who neglected to send you an August mix. Sorry about that. I'm a lazy, lazy man, but I am on it now and will get your mix in the mail promptly.

Carolina

Cos im so slow, I only just saw your comment re the July mix. Glad you liked it, I was hoping it would go to a reggae fan! The world needs more irie vibes, man!

Trish

Hi Darren I got your mix.wow very eclectic.interesting stuff.thank you!Trish

Monica

Thanks for the May mixes! Good stuff.

Richard

Darren - I messed up - in a couple exchange clubs and was thinking the exchange was with person a cd is received from. Your cd is in the mail and on its way. Sorry man.

Richard

I hope you got your mix cd. I sent it to the address on the envelope. It had been awhile since getting the email assignment so I did not think of the difference in the two addresses.

Andy

December mix was posted between Christmas and New Year. It's got a long way to travel - you should hopefullly have it in about a week.

Kavokei

Hi Darren. Apologies, I came down with the dreaded swine flu last week, so I'm a bit late sending over your November mix. However, it'll be in the post from the UK by tomorrow (Mon 7 Dec), and it's a double CD, so hopefully that will make up for it. Hope you like it!

David

Howdy Hey!!! Got my mix. And it's really good. The variety is great and I didn't know most of the songs; so cudos to you. Unfortunately the Q. Crisp track don't play? Go figure, but it looked like it would have been a good one. Thanks a lot.

Paddy

Hi Darren, Apologies but I'm running late with you April mix. I'll throw you in a copy of the May one I put together for good measure. BTW You sent me my first mixtape back in March 2007. Been mixtaping ever since! Thanks man!

Randy

Your December mix is on the way. Hope you like it.

Michael

Awesome mix - and all the way from Japan! Just received today and am enjoying immensely. Thanks much!

Johannah

Hey - your June 2008 mix is in the mail today. I hope you get it soon!

Bob

Dropped your May mix in the mail today 5/5/08 Cinco De Mayo. Let me know when you get it.

Sean

Very happy to know that you are enjoying the mixes. Man, I was digging deep into my vault to find some of these old tunes of The Fall, EPMD, and others. I have been playing this stuff non-stop myself for the past week. I was putting The Fall's version of "Lost In Music" by Sister Sledge but the cassette was eaten by my tape deck.

Sean

You have been selected for my March assignment. It has been completed and mailed today, March 20. Please let me know when you receive it. I have no idea how long it will take to get to Japan. More importantly, it is designed for your taste in music according to your profile and I hope you enjoy it as much as I put it together and played it loudly. seanvmcmonagle@hotmail.com

John

Thanks Darren for the Mix CD handshake across the Pacific. I enjoyed it very much! ~John

Yep I do have a lot of albums. Everyone in my family likes their own little sphere of music so . . . Guess that accounts for my randomness. "Moonbeam" was my favorite song on your CD. It was funny because a few friends came in to visit awhile back. I tend to just listen to the IMPs in my car (if someone steals my CDs they are all just burned.) So when "Moonbeam" came on everyone just stopped and afterwards said what a perfect little song it was for driving around D.C. Pretty neat. It almost felt like a Volkswagen commercial. Ha.

Ginger

Sorry about the late mix! I mailed it off last week, hope it's on it's way to you soon!

Paddy

Thanks for the March mix man! Some sweet numbers on there!

Steven

Yay. A photo of food. Like-mindedness.

Tanya

Hey I used to live in Japan too .. for three years. Where are you living? Do you have a LiveJournal? If you do, look up ExpatsJapan in a search - there are tons of people on there that live or have lived in Japan. Let me know!

David

That's not back bacon is it?

Rachel

man, I miss that English breakfast

Cornelius

That's a hot look though if you can pull it off. Be sure and wear spandex pants with the overly tight ROCK show T-shirt. Maybe a studded belt over the spandex pants...and white leather high top shoes of course. Don't forget the 2 spiked leather forearm bracers either. Very Iron Maiden.
