Avant a laugh mix part 7

Part 7 of the head mashing music mix is here.

We have some sexuality questioning teenbeat. Some smouldering hip hop from El-p. An early track from Joy Division from when they were known as Warsaw and a field recording of some Tawney owls.

One of the reasons I think someone complained about part 6 of the mix was because it had a track from the new Stooges album. I can't be sure though. So to piss other people off I'm ending this mix with a track from the new Wilco album. People need to relax. You can't even download single tracks off my mixes.. anyway hope you enjoy this one..


1. Burning star core - The Universe Is Designed To Break Your Heart
2. Josie Cotton - Johnny Are You Queer
3. Catherine Ribeiro - Voyage
4. El-p - Smithereens
5. Smegma - Half a billion
6. Various production - Circle of sorrow
7. Skullflower - Abyssic Lowland Hiss II
8. Scritti Politti - Skank Bloc Bologna
9. Sun Ra - Celestial Road
10. GG Allin - No Rules
11. Warsaw - Novelty
12. Jason Kahn - Fields, track 2
13. The Carolina Tar Heels - Got the Farm Land Blues
14. Sonny Sharrock - Soon
15. Spaceman 3 - Honey
16. Chris Watson - Tawny owls, calls on territorial boundaries, Bolam lake, Northumberland
17. Fursaxa - Lunaria enters the blue lodge
18. Wilco - On and on and on

Running time - 67 mins

Avant a laugh part 6 removed

Sorry if you have seen that the link is dead. It says complaints have been recieved. I'm going to re-upload it. I have no idea why someone would complain. If you have a problem with any of the content of the mixes then it's very easy to contact me and I can try and rectify the problem. They can complain all they want though because I will just keep on uploading them. I'll put the new link in the 'part 6' post and here too -

Part 7 is coming very very soon

Avant a laugh mix part 6

Yes it's that time again.

I wish I could post more often but trying to pull off more than one of these things a week is too much.. so as I said before any other mixes are welcome to be posted on here.. just let me know.

This mix.. well.. drone, Throat singing, balls to wall rock and roll, Prog, Folk and Ass shaking grooves all in one neat little package.

Syd Barrett's last song with Pink Floyd makes an appearance, as does a Neil Young song which has some rare guitar playing from original crazy horse member Danny Whitten.

Oh and a brief warning. I know sometimes these mixes can explode into extreme noise without much warning but be careful coming up to the 'Sissy Spacek' track.. especially if you are wearing headphones or are in the presence of young children..

1. Lawrence English - Swan
2. Albert Kuvezin Yat Kha - Love will tear us apart
3. Alesia Cosmos - King kong
4. Sir Richard Bishop - Black eyed blue
5. Brute Force - Confessions of love, track 2
6. Étant Donnés - Aurore, track 8
7. Fushitsusha - Magic IV
8. The Bark Haze - Punchline part 1
9. Johnny Thunders - You can't put your arms around a memory
10. Colin Potter - Behind you
11. The Stooges - Trollin'
12. Sissy Spacek - Devils cone and palm
13. Pink Floyd - Vegetable man
14. Frank Wright - Kevin, my dear son
