Mix Tape #22 - My Neck's Stiff. My Head Hurts.

Music's making me sad. The new MF Doom album is completely phoned in. The guy from Hot Snakes and Drive Like Jehu started a new band that sounds like the old bands minus everything that made them interesting. I finally listened to the second Evens record and didn't like it. Every time I try to find something from this decade to like I fail. Well. Except for Wooden Shjips.

[Seriously...if you have any suggestions for modern stuff I might like, PLEASE let me know].

So, I keep retreating into decades-old oddities and that's mostly what informed this mix. It gets kind of loud toward the end. Sorry. Also, I didn't mean to put Peggy Sue in there twice, but, eh, sounded good.

"Ba-Di-Bi" is the theme song to a softcore movie from Italy about swinging nursing students. I don't think I'll be seeing that...

Oh. And in the interest of full disclosure, I notice I included a BUNCH of tracks from this guy's mix. Which is great. Big fan of that site.
