The C90 Sessions are an opportunity for me to make mixes of some of the underground (and a few overground) bands and performers from the 80s - an extremely rich, experimental and diverse decade musically, which is often just seen as an era of nostalgic glossy pop. A lot of the bands are new discoveries for me from over the last few years thanks to the wealth of bloggers worldwide who are way more knowledgeable than me.
Anyway I've adopted the 'virtual' format of the good old cassette (hence the name of the series) for these mixtapes, in much the same I used to as a kid growing up.
The mixes aren't particularly themed, but more a showcase and have been done in the same spirit I would have made compilations for my mates at school minus the terrible home made artwork and scrawl of a tracklisting!
Finally each mixtape's title is a play on more well known albums from the 80s - can you spot them all?
Hope you enjoy this one, which is the first of many....
