The '1981' box set - Part 2 of 9

Mixed back in 2003, a one-off mix became three, then five, and eventually nine themed CD mixes (plus a catch-all mp3 disc) that in total featured hundreds of musicians from the incredibly wide world of post-punk, all from 1981. The set was initially issued as hand-made box sets with printed discs and booklets, mailed (for the cost of materials and shipping) around the world. Now ten years on from the start of the project, '1981' seems about ready to hopefully be discovered by yet another generation of ears for whom this now-30-year-old music will sound timeless.

'Heart' shows that the emotional range, and sonic beauty, of post-punk is frequently understated.



The effort that surely went into these I am so grateful for! What a great era...

I still cherish the box you handed me personally when I was -- what -- maybe 14 or 15!


That's so cool!


Johnny, sorry but I haven't made any since 2005. However it is downloadable in full from

Is it still possible to buy the cd boxset :-)


Everyone of your mixes really blows my mind, but this one is probably my fav. Thank you so much
