Playing tracks by
George Harrison, Bob Dylan, John Prine, Steve Earle, The carter family and more.
The origin for this mix was, as so many others, a conversation with one of my ZeRO mates, in this case Strange Loop. I mentioned to him that I was intentionally listening to as much pure shit music on spotify just to pollute my last.fm listing and destroy any self-mythological intentions I may have had. He said, “hey, Death of Doowad should be your mixathon entry.” But then I thought, that was not exactly what we had in mind for the mixathon and it pisses me off to no end when some people (ahem, ahem) insist on “breaking” with the mixathon theme because their “rebellious” nature just can’t keep them on task.
So fuck that, I decided to post today. And no, I’m not killing off doowad or fading away or burning out, but I did like this as a retread of a few of my favorites and the kind of tracks that would really bring out the tears at my own near or far future funeral.
