Hope this works properly:
sendspace.com j12ab6



Here's my tape. It's mostly a mix of rock, punk and
pop/power-pop. I dunno if the American bands in this mixtape are well known, so
if these songs are all over the radio over there, I apologise. A lot of these
bands haven’t been mentioned on these boards so I hope it comes across well and
I'd love to hear your comments.

The hometown of one of our regulars is mentioned in one of the songs. A blue
star ( Like a Star @ heaven) to whoever gets it!

Also, I'm not too sure if it's gonna be in the right order when you download
it, so in running order:

1. Street Dogs - Strike a Blow - One of my favourite bands of all time.
This is the first track off of their second album and it's about and it is,
what punk rock is all about. This is full of energy, guitar and great vocals.
It's not their best song by any means, or their 'deepest' but I love it.

2. Flobots - Same Thing - Yes, the group who brought you Handlebars.
Handlebars is a great song, but I think it's seen as a bit of a gimmicky song a
bit and might have put people off? This song has a great beat and even better
lyrics. I know there's not many hip-hop fans on here but I think their sound is
broad enough to cross-over.

3. DIRECTOR - Reconnect - I tired to put a couple of Irish bands i nthis
selection. But the 'scene' here isn't all that healthy. Off their debut album
this is probably gonna be hit or miss. I remember seeing these guys play this
acoustic in my "mall" and was quite shocked. Something very
interesting about them, I'm just not sure what. I hope you like.

4. Blue October - Hate Me - I've only started listening to this band in
the last few weeks so I'm not sure how big they are in the States. This song is
very depressing I suppose but it's got great lyrics.

5. Lou Reed - New York Telephone Conversation - A quirky little soong
plonked in the middle of the excellent album 'Transformer'. It's not about much
at all, but is a fun little song. Needed to lighten up a bit after Blue
October. Get 'Transformer' if you haven't listened to it.

6. The Flaming Lips - Yeah Yeah Yeah Song - I'm not sure what genre ya'd
call The Flaming Lips but I imagine they're spaced out of it most of the time
they're writing music. I always feel that slight bit happier after listening to
this song. Also, they are absolutely AWESOME live, so if you ever get the
chance to go see them, do.

7. The New Pornographers - Myriad Harbour - I found out about this band
when my brother rang me out of the blue with a spare ticket to go see them. I
got to listen to the first half of this album before we left for the show and
this was one of the songs I heard. I love the mixture of vocals in their music
and the subtlety of her voice.

8. Ozma - Rocks - One of the pop-ier songs in the mix. Despite having
two of their albums (my brothers) I never really looked further into the band
itself so I don't really know what to say about this song, t's about what most
pop songs are about I guess.

9. The Blizzards - Freaky - Another of the pop songs from a
relatively local band. I really like these guys, especially coz of the energy
of their live show. The first time I ever snuck into a pub was to watch these
guys. The end of this song especially is great.

10. Ash - Pacific Palisades - Believe it or not, these guys turned down
the chance to tour Europe with Pearl Jam when
they were in their teens to finish their exams. A couple of years ago when I
was in France
I listened to this CD every day. Excellent for summer listening. Mix of rock
and pop. I hope you like.

11. Bright Eyes - At the Bottom of Everything - I actually meant to
upload the recorded version of the song, but I put in the live one by mistake.
It's still fairly good I think. The guitar is great. Although his vocals sound
a bit shaky.

12. Sufjan Stevens - John Wayne
Gacy, Jr.
- This is one of the scariest songs I've ever heard due to the
mix of story, lyrics and Sufjan's voice. Btw, he's an expert at more or less
any instrument he's tried. I only have his Illinoise album, so if you wanna
recommend any other of his stuff, I'd be grateful

13. Manu Chao - 13 Días - I've no idea what this song is about. And it's
the same with most of his stuff. (He sings in Spanish, French and some
English). But his stuff is great listening nonetheless.

14. The Briggs - What Was I Thinking? - I saw these guys open for DKM
about a year back now and they were awesome even though there was f-all in the
venue at the time. They put loads of energy in and there was a good amount of
crowd involvement, which I thought was really good coz I doubt many people
would have known their stuff at the time. The album this is taken off comes
highly recommended by me. And it's produced by Joe Gittleman, so it's gotta be
great.

15. Stiff Little Fingers - Alternative Ulster - Might be the clichéd SLF
song to pick, but what can I say? I love the guitar intro.

16. Monkey Man - The Specials - Got to see The Specials live a few weeks
back, which I never thought would be possible. For old men they certainly can
still rock. They'd put a lot of todays bands to shame with their energy,
commitment and dedication to their performance. Can't beat a bit of ska.

17. E - Mockingbird Franklin - You've probably heard of Eels. This is E
from Eels early stuff. An absolutely beautiful song.

18. Ben Folds - Gracie - Another beautiful song by the modern piano man.
Listening to this song I can't wait to have kids.

19. AM Radio - Oh Oh Oh - One last pop song and this one is also about a
girl. I guess if it's not your thing, fair enough, but if you like good pop
music, I think you'll like this. I think AMR are managed by Rivers Cuomo from
Weezer?

20. Ben Folds - Tiny Dancer - A live version of Elton John's classic. If
you've never heard of Ben Folds before this I'd recommend The Sunny 16 EP or
Songs for Silverman

21. Mighty Mighty Bosstones - Dr. D - In my all time top 4 along with
Street Dogs, DKM and of course TGA so I had to put something by them in.
Dicky's vocals and the horns come over great in this.

Is someone here from Belfast? That's the first town that came to mind after looking over the songs.

Nice choices, I only know a few but there's several other people on here I've been meaning to listen to, so thanks for that.

Flaming Lips and Manu Chao much love for those guys! I like a lot of the stuff on your mix but plenty of stuff I haven't will get on this when I have some let up form work.

Shit! That's not the one I was thinking about. But I guess it'd work. There's another one in there too. Not as obvious.

D/L atm - know most of the songs already

SLF = gods , alternative ulster is wicked little number ! - i was going to pick it for my mixtape , Sad

simo - im from northern ireland - enniskillen to b exact ( 90 miles from belfast) .. mighty little place


i will agree with daire with scene in ireland a whole has been pretty shambolic and thats being nice! too many tribute bands ! but things are picking up with some interesting acts getting noticed like fighting with wire from derry , in case of fire and "and so i watch you from afar"

I think I used to pass through there the whole time on the way to Monagahn? Suspect


ASIWYFA played at Oxegen but I didn't get to catch them. Have you ever heard of Fight Like Apes?? They were absolutely mental. I'm in the middle of getting their album right this second.

winrar expires after like 30 days or something, so i would recommend download a program called 7-zip. you can get it at www.download.com

and steph, wasn't somebody asking about tickets you had for a portland show or something? i'm not really sure why i thought you were from seattle other than that

Thanks Daire, sorry i've been a while to comment, but I've really enjoyed this mixtape! I'll post comments on the songs sometime during the next few weeks, i just havnt had time with the mixtape per week, but now that its fortnightly I should be able to catch up. This has been one of my favourite tapes, I loved the Flaming Lips, and have since got The Soft Bulletin, and also the Ozma, Stiff Little Fingers and Am Radio songs. Also it was a nice suprise seeing Ash in another mixtape. I had Orpheus in mine a few months back. Have a good one.
