The Mashing

It's been a few years now since I was last involved in the dubious activity of smooshing two songs together to make one dodgy song. The 'mashup' business is as thick with contributing artists & DJs as any other part of the the music scene, so it's not like everyone stopped making mashups after I released "Emineldtritch-Without Lucretia". However, I can proudly say that it got airplay both sides of the globe in its time, and that's not something to be sniffed at.
If you've not heard it then all I can say was that it really was as bizarre a combination as it may sound.

Anyway to cut a long one short, I knocked up two mashups recently, so seeing as they'll only get up to no good sitting on my hard drive, I thought I'd give them to you lot for safe keeping under the collective name, 'The Mashing'.

Cruel Britannia's Haunted Wardrobe

I decided a few weeks back that 'The Other Fadeout' on Nightbreed Radio had run its course quite successfully and to try a new format for September. I wanted to create a show which focused primarily on the goth/darkwave/deathrock scenes more than previously, and to leave the broader spectrum of music that I air completely in the hands of 'Fadeout' on Phoenix Radio, where it all began.

With that I bring you Cruel Britannia's Haunted Wardrobe; an hour of great tunes from the aforementioned genres, with a little more 'spook' in the mix. I hope it goes down well with you.

September's show playlist looks an awful lot like this:
Snake Dance-In Your Arms I'll Die
Sex Gang Children-Beasts
Bauhaus-Boys (live)
Fear Cult-If You're Watching
Hatesex-A Rose Without Eyes
The Cure-Fascination Street
Death In June-Break The Black Ice
Killing Joke-The Raven King
Kooper Kain-You Had It Coming
Garden Of Delight-Spirit Lovers
Death Party UK-She's So Hot

I can announce that The Haunted Wardrobe will also be heard on Tampa's famous Deathrock Radio. More ways to hear the show are always a good thing in my books.
