In her hands

You're gonna love this one,
I promise you.
This has proper un-mashed songs,
a pretty good flow,
and no shocking ugliness and harshness.
Yet it will still provide you
with enough of the quark, strangeness and charm
that you expect from
a childwithoutaniPod mix.
There is cosmic optimism at the heart
of this baby.
We open with the "should be world famous"
Columbian band Aterciopelados, what a voice!
I just can't but help smile when I hear these French Doves
sing an English hymn.
A beautiful mystic seashore song from the Scottish greats.
New soon to be released frozen-tech-dub from Denmark's Trentemoller.
Wevie Stonder break the ice in their own inimitable style.
Hall & Oates sing their smooth insincerities and did they steal
Gene Clark's rhythm? You decide.
Gene with his Zen lyrics is masterful in this piece.
Aterciopelados get global again and pass around the pipe of peace.

Aterciopelados - Platonico
Folk Dove - Lord of the dance
Bread Love and Dreams - The strange tale of Captain Shannon
Trentemoller - The very last resort
Wevie Stonder - Gagged & Bound
Hall & Oates - Alone too long
Gene Clark - Winter in
Aterciopelados - La Pipa de la Paz

If you haven't lost your happy coloured marbles
after listening to this mix then you are made of stronger
stuff than I.

This is a labrynthine mash of moody dark themes and subconscious
triggers. Hopefully it is like a healthy nightmare,
or a risky potholing expedition, you'll be glad to get out the other side and look back fondly saying, that was great but please,
never again!!

Celebrating the return of the clueless TV show,
this fall.
Celebrating the return of the superb yet frightening
techno club night in London starring Jeff Mills, Laurent Garnier,
Rhythm and Sound and Steve Bicknell and a crowd of techno nutters.
My heart my soul my innocence my grace my smile my light my soil
my grass my sky my fire my hole.
Or as Slade once sang "we all need some lovin' my oh my"

Tracks featured include:

Los Hermanos - Lines of Nazca
Arpanet - Event Horizon
Dire Straits - Expresso Love
Relatively Clean Rivers - Journey Through the valley of O
Bokaj Retsiem - Pill
Octave Once - Covenant
The harmonic Choir and David Hykes
Aqua Bassino - Ibiza
Jimi Hendrix - World Traveller
The KLF - Waiting for the rights of Mu

deep in green

Hey, I went for another walk on the Heath.
You should go, there are lovely green woods
buzzing noisily with formation hoverflies
apocalypse now style.
I talked with a Wall Brown butterfly.
She said go home and do a MOFOing mix.
So I did.
Enjoy Kit-Kats.

ride with me


Here is first in what will
probably become a parrallel
podcast to accompany these mixes.
This is a much more straight-forward
play tune, talk, play another tune show.
Nothing fancy (yet).

Unfortunately I am very tired and didn't notice
that the sound was being clipped at times.
What I have to say between tracks is rather humdrum and
unenthusiastic, but I promise that this will improve.
I just did this for the spontanaeity factor
that I wholeheartedly believe in and adhere to.

No tracklisting as I mention them in the show.

Hugs and kisses listeners,
this one gets soppy.
