So, here is a mix I am planning on doing this coming wednesday for the radio. The show will be on halloween night, so at first I wanted to make it sort of scary and all that, but that was not easy for me, so instead the songs I chose ended up being either lyrically dark, angry, or simply strange….which was very easy for me. Not the most typical halloween-esque mix, but does anyone really listen to scary music. What is scary music? Marilyn Manson….is that scary? Actually, here is a halloween mix a comrade of mine did that does stand up to the challenge. I tip my hat and stomp my cane in honor of his mix. Anyway, what the hell do I care about halloween? I’ve got work the next day at 4am, so you can probably count this old man out for the costume party down at the bar. Kids and their costumes, bah, who needs them? Having fun is not it’s all cracked up to be. All I need is this little hot computer on my lap, a steaming mug of chamomile tea with honey, and maybe a half an hour in the sauna before bed, now that is a memorable halloween…..oh…sigh.



This mix consists of these artists, albums, and songs:

The Monks / Demo Tapes 1965 / I Hate you

Leonard Cohen / Songs of Love and Hate / Diamonds in The Mine

The Mothers of Invention / We’re Only in it for the Money / Mom and Dad

Smog / Knock Knock / Cold Blooded Old Times

The Mothers of Invention / We’re Only in it for the Money / Let’s Make the Water Turn Black

The Skygreen Leopards / Jehovah Surrender EP / Let the Lions be Swallowed by a Dove

The Books / Music for a French Elevator / Of the Word God

Destroyer / Destroyer’s Rubies / Rubies

Bob Dylan / Time out of Mind / Not Dark Yet

    Nice to know that you’re still checking out past posts on this site…I nearly forgot about this mix. Destroyer is one Dan Bejar. He’s got a few great albums, my favorite being one called “destroyer’s rubies”…An excellent album well worth hunting down. Dan Bejar is (was?) also a member of the new pornographers and a sort of super-group called “swan lake” that put out an incredible first album.
    I hope you are doing great,
