About the show
Playing tracks by
Richard Hell, Manolo kabezabolo, Joan Jett, Flying lizards, The Ukrainians and more.
My mix is called ‘Punk is Playing At My House’ (66 mins, 62Mb). It’s mean to flow as a sort of history, going from early punk/garage tunes (Kinks, Kingsmen, Iggy) through media shocks (Bill Grundy, Ramones, Clash), through electronic, reggae and dub bad girls and glam (Joan Jett, Flying Lizards, Big Black), to Anarchy in the UK and Queens (Manolo kabezabolo, Chumbawumba, Ukrainians), to kids tunes and silliness (Vandals, Ramones do Spiderman, Banana Splits, Sabre Dance) and then the sick ending with Joey Ramone, Sound of Music punk style, Wizard of Oz punk and Nada Surf doing Iggy.
It’s a very Radio Clash sort of mix, with a lot of genre fuckage and thematic slumping (it’s like 5 minimixes in one, and it my first long mix). It was all done live with about 5 edits for punk loose ‘feel’.
I mean a mix that includes Ukelele band of Great Britain’s version of ‘Two pints of Lager and A Packet of Crisps Please’ can’t be that bad, can it?
