Comment:

A little mixed-genre effort for Rob Conroy, who's been known to do the occasional mixed-genre one himself. Title from the Aztec Camera track (possibly one of my favourite lyrics of all time - I don't know what it means, but I do love the way it comes out of Roddy Frame's mouth). Many thanks to Salman for the Madder Rose and French Connection for the Radio Dept!

Ah yes good old Roddy. Ive always loved that line too! The song itself fits well with the Madder Rose and Radio Dept picks. Lots of other faves here, most notably 17. You're no slouch at this mixed genre lark Siobhan.

Wow. What a mix. Track 11 makes me dance around like a nutter every time I hear it, I agree with you re: Roddy. And I remember buying Panic On when I was 17, which makes puts me at about 19 now..hooray!

i love the radio dept, and i'm also pleased by the inclusion of my favorite-titled track by cansei de ser sexy (because death from above 1979 should be more people's favorite band).

Oops! Well, who needs time-delay moisturisers when mixes do much the same job? Seriously, thanks for the heads-up, Sam - it's been changed to 1994 accordingly :)

Looks like a Henry Darger cover but sounds like something else entirely ??
