Comment:

Hmm, yes, well...the genesis of this came over two years ago whilst enjoying an afternoon of rum drinks, etc., with a friend and playing some discs; we got to that Beat Happening track and started thinking of similar tracks with that "good girl/bad girl" vibe and then woke up the next day with a few less brain cells promptly forgetting it. Flash forward to a few months ago on a roadtrip to see Plasticland with another friend and the Lime Spiders track sparked a renewed conversation in the same vein, (less all the accoutrements of the first conversation), so these tracks have been building up slowly but surely, until they were purple or blue and they've finally gone and exploded.
"Something, which springs from something or other, and which is increased by something else, and from which all something is taken away by something else, becomes something or other."

Awesome! I'm glad I was able to catch one of your mixes before it falls off the front page. (I always seem to miss 'em). What I know of this looks suitably great and that Gun Club->Lime Spiders stretch is superb.

Looks great from where I've fallen -- guess I got knocked off my feet by the hot cosmic rays emitting from your cover girl's belly button. Or could it be the amazing tunes contained within? Either way, I won't be getting up for awhile.

By the bleeding gums of St. Jerome, this is phenomenal. I know reconsructing this one would be a bear so I ask for your indulgence in securing a trade. How did you get your hands on The Poets?!?!

I meant to tell you this earlier. I was looking forward to this mix immensely but ended up sitting on it till I absorbed the Valek Mutation. After this weekend, I was kicking myself for not spending more time with it sooner. It was like trying to pick just one of the girls you had the hots for (as I vaguely recall). Congrats on a ROCKIN' and killer mix. I knew I was going to love this one.

Can't believe I missed this mix. I was missing for awhile there myself, but when I see a mix like this one, boy am I glad to be back!
