One More Summer Before I Go

Having finished my summer-themed mix-cd last month, I've now moved on to recording my mixtape for the summer's festivals. It was just put to tape, using a quality Sony C-90. It's quite the Black Cassette, with a stylish cover in blank black paper with the title visible at just the right angle. And let's take a look at that tracklisting!

Side A
The Pooh Sticks – On Tape
The Big Gun – Heard About Love
Boyracer – Black Fantastic Splitting
Snowbirds – Friends
The Autocollants – High School Summer
Skypark – Countryside
Primal Scream – Aftermath (1985 Peel version)
East Village – Back Between Places
The Rain Parade – What She’s Done to Your Mind
Ronnie McNeir – Sitting In My Class
The Close Lobsters – Don't Worry
1000 Violins – Let Me Charm the Pants Off Your World
The Chesterf!elds – Nose Out of Joint (1985 flexi version)
The June Brides – Enemies
The Wedding Present – Felicity
The Desert Wolves – Besotted

Side B
Orchestral Manoeuvres In the Dark – Electricity
Fosca – The Agony Without the Ecstasy
St. Christopher – Say Yes to Everything
The Wake – Judas
Josef K – Heads Watch
Robby Lawson – Burning Sensation
Hurrah! – Lonely Room
Biff Bang Pow! – She Paints
Pants Yell! – ‘83 In ‘05
Glo-Worm – Change of Heart
The Carousel – Strawberry Fayre
14 Iced Bears – Sure to See
Felt – Southern State Tapestry
The 6ths – You You You You You

You'll be able to here these sounds around, flowing gently from some dog-eared tape machine, if you visit the Emmaboda festival in Sweden this August. I will be playing with A Smile And A Ribbon.
