The Mixers is a legendary Glasgow beat/powerpop group that formed around 1980, when two of the members were just fifteen. Two of their songs were included on the Art For All and All For Art compilation on Whaam! and came out as a 7" on Vinyl Japan years later. The Mixers have an excellent Myspace page here, where you read more about their history and they've also been kind enough to put up some songs from their first demo. This is one of them, and it was recorded at the Glasgow studio CaVa which now seems to be the studio of choice for indiepop bands (Belle & Sebastian, Hefner, Camera Obscura and loads of other great bands have recorded there). There's also a website for their label Spirophone, where there's lots of stuff about all their related bands. Ulric currently has The Catalysts and Dannie has The Void.
