Naked if I Want to is the best Cat Power song ever -- also, your cover art is brilliant.


I'm so sorry you haven't recieved November's mix yet!!! It's going in the mail tomorrow I swear!!!! <3 Morgan


Haha no problem Sarah. I'm surprised it wasn't late... did you recieve it in August though? As far as I'm concerned, that's late. ;) I have way too many bands/songs/artists from the UK, or are "popular"/played a lot in the UK, so I tried not to include bands like Muse, Franz Ferdinand, etc. Then again, I'm sure that with the diverse music scene "up there", you probably hear/have heard most of the bands on the mix anyway! (/generalizing the UK into one place) Glad you liked it. :)


I thought about the Bolero - but honestly, it was more of a personal Rufus Tangents mix .. places being a Rufus superfan has led me, music I know because of people I've met in the process of chasing him around (I've seen him live 7 times - 9 by the end of September). Plus, ultimately a mixtape has to hang together, and these were the 18 tracks that made the cut! I am afraid the mixtape is a little overly intense if anything .. but Rufus is nothing if not intense.


Hey Sarah, Ta fer the mix; I've been looking for that Bo Diddley track fer a few years, and hitherto had ta content myself with Zevon's live version. Bo Diddley is indeed a gun-slinger. An excellent mix all round, though sadly I was born without the chromosome that allows one to tolerate the Smashing Pumpkins. I apologise fer that failure on my behalf, but I cannae back away from it. Nice cover art too. If you aren't a fan already, I suspect you'd like the Beasts of Bourbon. Cheers, D


Thanks for your comment. Sorry it took me six months to reply; it's been that kind of life. My definition of white funk/blue-eyed soul is totally arbitrary, and was mostly determined by the demands of my mix. I had to do some pretty fancy grad-school bubble blowing to make it sound like it all went together. Beck certainly fits in there, and Midnight Vultures is his funkenmeisterwerk. I have to say he's always been a bit too ironic for my taste. There's winking and then there's WINKING.


I do feel somewhat creeped out by including Glitter on a mix. But I draw some consolation from the belief that he won't benefit financially from my downloading the song (at least I'm assuming he won't as I suspect he's in prison?). He's also not very well known over here. So it's a judgement call. If I were to be too concerned about the private lives of the artists I've listened too then I wouldn't be able to listen to Jerry Lee Lewis (does he have any living ex- wives?), Chuck Berry (the weird watching people pee thing), James Brown (guns and cocaine - not a nice mix), Christ, even Cat Stevens supported the fatwah on Rushdie, didn't he? So, sometimes I have to suck it in and ignore the personal life of the performer. But, you're right. Gary Glitter ......eeeeewwwwww. Anyways, so it's a Judy thing. Are you an "all-Judy-all-the time" kind of gal? A "anything she does is good" fan?


What's your favourite song from The Wizard? And is it a song thing? Or a Wizard thing?


I miss crumpets. They have 'em over here, but somehow they just don't taste the same.
