This week I put the finishing touches to a new mix born out of a need to create, experiment and the knowledge that it's been some time since I last made one.
"Cruel Britannia's Disturbia" is a combination of the more sinister leanings of a previous mix "Uneasy Listening Vol.1", random segues of noise & dialogue and the often ingeniously haphazard styles of music the late John Peel would air on his shows.
All the tracks in 'Disturbia' are of electronica, industrial and alternative (back when it was deemed 'properly' alternative music) genres, interweaved with oddments of noises & sounds from Brass Eye, Jeremy Kyle shows, ang god only knows what else. It's definitely not just another 'goth mix', it was never intended to be.
Whether it makes the grade of 'listenable' is purely a personal thing-it was certainly a bit disturbing when I played the whole mix back to myself (hence the name 'Disturbia'). At times it comes across almost like an amateur take on one of P.Emerson William's Necrofuturist Transmission shows but with with a decidedly British sense of humour throughout.
Listen out for it on Nightbreed Radio in February. You'll either love it or hate it, but either way you couldn't ignore it.
