A whole year has past and this is the centenary edition of Monthly Mixtapes…I’m impressed I’ve managed to keep it going…long live the Mixtape!
Mixtape#10 – November/December 07
1, Enjoy Destroy – LBJ … Supported Alter Bridge @ Astoria, this is as great a rock ballad your likely to hear!
2, Alter Bridge – Broken Wings … The plinth sitting centre piece of their crazy live show
3, Damone – Out here All Night … Imagine if Justin Hawkins recruited Avril Lavigne as lead singer of the Darkness…intrigued?? … Have a listen!
4, Goldrush – Each Of Us … Indie pop with great composition sensibilities and a viciously catchy melody
5, Rush –
6, Nada Surf – See These Bones … The return single from these north american indie heroes
7, Crash Kelly – Hang Out Where You Know … Canadians with a thirst for T-rex with this riff driven cock-rock fest
8, Poets & Pornstars – Earthman … As over the top power ballads go this one borders on leaving the atmosphere altogether.
9, Mooney Suzuki – 99% … Back to their best with big blues and catchy lyrics
10, Circa Survive – The Difference Between Poison & Medicine Is The Dose … Punk Progsters produce a drifting meshed guitar epic
11, British Sea Power – Waving Flags … Return of these stupefied indie pop mentalists who are back to confuse the world!
12, The Wombats – Moving To New York … A decent enough riff pushes this pop-rocker along nicely
13, Porcupine Tree – Fear Of A Blank Planet … Such a beautiful meld of atmospheric resonance and brash guitar thumping… stunning!
14, Blackfield – Where Is My Love … Mellow, haunting sounds with a pop backbone
15, The Audition – Ether … Pop Punk Anthem of the Month!
