Comment:

Clocking in at just under 59 minutes, this is the shortest mix I've made in years. Normally I try and make these things 75 minutes or more, but when I tested the above list as a work-in-progress I realised that adding any more songs to stretch it out would be unnecessary. I made this mix for another forum I'm a member of (and I'll post shortly another mix I'm producing for them), and it's built around a mix I'd first sketched out about three years ago before my CD burner died on me. Made some changes to that and finished it off, et voila. Yes, that *is* Alan Moore the writer of comics.

Looks cool. I only recently came across Black Heart Procession - good band from San Diego I think. 59 min is a good length for a mix.

Looks really nice. I know what you mean about mix lengths, and completely agree that it's not worth stretching it to the full length of a blank CD if it's going to detract from the mix. I like Black Heart Procession a lot too - also loving the Tricky, EN, EBTG and Killing Joke.

Looks good! I didn't realize EBTG covered 'Only Living Boy in New York'.

They did indeed, back in the late 80s. Hal Hartley directed the video for it as well.
