Comment:



A collection of rabble-rousers from 1975-1983.
Filing this under "Punk," which is at least 75-83% accurate.
The mix is arranged so that female voices are heard on the even-numbered tracks.

On the cover, keeping the spirit alive, are Toronto's The Bayonettes.

The title is from track 1. The Bollocks were a Baltimore band who... oh, never mind the
Bollocks.



The subtitle is from New York City's seminal punk venue commonly known as "CBGB's" but more
officially as "CBGB & OMFUG."
There has been some revisionism about the meaning of the initials.
But I can tell you - with the full certainty of having lived a few blocks away (Waverly Place) -
that the original meaning was Country, BlueGrass, Blues and
Other Music From the UnderGround.

56mins. A selection of tracks is available for listening at
mixxer.muxtape.com.

Okay I loved this mix just after seeing you included the Dicks and Stiff Little Fingers. Then I saw you included Siouxsie and the Banshee's "Carcass" and immediately had to give you 5 stars.

X-tra X-citing X-plosive X-ecution here. (But the muxtape link, for me, just displays a track listing, no listening - I must be missing something?)

joey de vivre, Muxtape can be a little finicky, but it does work. When you see the listing, just click on any song title, give it a few seconds to buffer, and then the song starts playing. It seems to be more responsive in Explorer than in Firefox, but they both work.

Pls let me know if that helps. If not, maybe we will smash a guitar on it like Wendy O. Williams (of the Plasmatics) would have done.

I used to say Wendy O. Williams was my mother, since we have the same middle initial and last name. your mix is on fire, Ed. the hottest bits are The Limit, False Prophets, Stiff Little Fingers, Plasmatics, The Dickbrains, Cash Pussies and, of course, X. this was a delightful walk down memory lane... or more like a swagger down memory alley.

Salad days they were, I must say. The mix brings back memories, although most of those are rather clouded.

hey mixxer !

yeah, i had been busy getting ready for the move south and then bouncing around for a few months until school started. i notice that you haven't posted a mix for awhile either - was this due to the scripting issue ?

i guess the one good thing that's come of that is the fact that a mix can last 10 days before scrolling off the latest 100 *grin*

and yes, it was a blustery bleak day on the coast the day the party was held outdoors - even in july, you have to pay attention to the weather up north !
