HAMSTER HUEY & THE GOOEY KABLOOIE!(Every Other Is A Cover)~1997 ~33 songs/100 minutes *Ah, sweet, sweet nostalgia! This was the final mix tape I ever did make before transistioning to CDs. It was brink of summer 1997, and not only was this my entrant into an organized mixtape swap (12 participants), but also served as part of the soundtrack to an upcoming SanJose,CA to Denver,CO roadtrip. No hardline theme or meaning on HHGK- merely songs I liked with every other track being a random coversong. The title is courtesy of Mr. Watterson and the imagery is sheer dadaesque-compositional delight via moi! *I haven't had an operational cassette player in years and don't have the desire to remake this release on CD verbatim, though I have been liberally re-using these songs on other CD comps I've done (usually a no-no in my mixer principles, but left in this analog state: they are as good as never selected in the first place). *The final Dandy Warhols track truly is 16 minutes- a fact that I always regretted (5 songs could've gone in it's place!) though it did provide a suitable sonic vignette for desert driving! *I submit this now merely as a document of where I was 6 years ago, and relegate the article itself to the sands of time...

Very nice. Love the cover (and covers) too -- especially the Mercury. Two of your cover versions appeared on my last covers mix. We should do lunch.

nice mix. I really like the idea of 1/2 covers. Nice website too (free plug).

Ah, those halcyon days of yesteryear, when I could still use vinyl on my mixes because I didn't need an analog interface for my computer. Great mix!
