the third installment of the mixtape connection is this friday the 30th. as usual it's at capitol bar on hereford st. again, free, and again, you get a free mix cd if yr one of the first 50 rdunited members through the door. but you get a choice this time - mr hitchcock is mixing one of the cds, and i've made the other one. mine is under the guise of "late night tales", e.g. those terrific compilations, of which have recently been done by the flaming lips and four tet.
if you haven't been to the past gigs, well here's the sort of music yr in for:
Gang of Four, The Smiths, Tom Vek, Out Hud, The Rapture, LCD Soundsystem (plus other DFA artists), !!!, Mu, The Human League, The Soft Pink Truth, Death from Above 1979, The Cure, Blondie, Talking Heads, Joy Division, Devo, New Order, Felix da Housecat, The Go! Team, Vitalic, Interpol, Kraftwerk, Chicks on Speed, Pet Shop Boys, The Cars, Arthur Russell, Ellen Allien, Junior Boys, Luke Vibert etc.
alongside the regulars missy g (from girlschool, tuesdays 7-9pm before guitar media), mr hitchcock (host of the mixtape sessions, thursday 7-9pm), and myself (richard), bill bird will be playing his special blend of indie rock and dark drum & bass (lolz!). rollers, bangers, and thumpers. massive!
