Avant a laugh mix part 2

Ok here is another mix of sounds that really have no right to be played next to each other.. We have some Dubstep in the mix this time to liven things up.. maybe you will feel like dancing ? Elsewhere we have Shirley Collins singing whilst Hermann Nitsch booms in the background and an emotionally devastating 6 minutes of Albert Ayler playing at his good friend John Coltrane's funeral to send you all off to bed thoroughly depressed...

p.s Please forgive the 'computer' noise that crops up twice.. As you know this is mixed live and recorded so if the laptop decides to make an unscheduled noise then I can't really stop and start again.. although I did feel like it..

Avant a laugh mix part 1

Welcome to the first Avant a laugh (As seen in Beard magazine) mix. These mixes will all be MP3 files of VBR and archived as .rar files. Everything will be uploaded on (Well worth getting an account, very cheap).

There will be no real theme to these mixes as I'm mixing them live as I record them.. so whatever pops into my head goes right in there..

Remember these tracks are actually mixed together and will not run from start to finish. All songs are played as one long track.
