Groove Spectrum #2



The other side of the virtual cassette tape done only for the sake of completion! Again, a wide range of eclectic rhythmic selections that I loosely describe as groove based, and again, quick, dirty and mixed live. But, Van Halen is an odd one to include, however it does sound like something Italian dark-proggers Goblin might have done. Every single one of these tracks have featured in old mixes I've done, they're all big faves of mine.

Narrowcast 1

POP BEFORE PEPPER



The Narrowcast series I have on mixcloud is generally made up of one hour mixes I make for myself to listen to on my hour long commute - could be completely random or could be themed, narrowcasted to myself as opposed to a broadcast meant to please others. This one in particular was intended to capture the musical landscape before the Beatles released Sgt. Pepper and it is the seed which spurred me to start my FM Rock series. Minus the Herman's Hermits, Monkees and Association tracks, this mix could be considered a bonus pre-August '67 FM Rock mix.
