2010. “My God, It’s full of stars!” (Whereas in fact, it was full of stone dust) This playlist reflects the general mood of my personal beats and tunes whilst the world span round and no intelligent life made contact. Featuring the likes of OK Go, Unkle and Gorillaz, have a listen, It all makes some kind of terrible sense.
2009. After a heavy bombardment of trance bombs,bullets from a melancholic machine gun, rock tanks rolling, drum and bass booby traps, pop snipers and an axe wielding Industrial murderer, there was the inevitable death of Monkey Boy. His funeral included tributes from Revolting Cocks, Kinky and Gnarls Barkley.
2008 What a year! It was a rollercoaster ride of stone chiselling, a near death almost-tragedy the night before my wedding, a restorative honeymoon in Mexico, a return to intensive career training and a creeping of darker audio tones to see the year out. This playlist is the soundtrack to that period, full of twists and turns with a seriously a mellow mid section.
2007. Twenty tracks of audio ammunition featuring the likes of Unkle,NIN and Meat Beat Manifesto. Wars have begun with less.
2006.Parts of the sphere reveal the wheel. This was my soundtrack whilst exploring Robin Hood’s Hut, St.Lucia and Taba. Warning! May contain traces of Nine Inch Nails,and Hybrid.
2005 saw the continuing ascension from the pit of my emotions and turmoil that had tainted the majority of my time living on the Isle of Bristol. Adventures with Purple Girl provided a grand new perspective and this was the soundtrack for that era.
2004 The year I met my partner in crime and future wife to be: Purple Girl. And so began a rip roaring rocket ride with rumpugneous ramifications. This explosive playlist including the sleazy acts of Ministry Underworld and The Prodigy charts the terrifying,tumultuous trajectory of our year reaching a crescendo of apocalyptic proportions.
HIAB-X SMAAASSSSH! 2003 started with a kitten then went all kung fu, violent hardcore yoga, a Greek odyssey, thunder and lightning, a prayer to the stars and mechanical abuse. All covered in a gooey-prickly coating of Juno Reactor, Oakenfold and UNKLE. Other people of equal musical abilities contributed to this mix with melody and strychnine.
In 2002, I just couldn’t help it, I started building a droid and needed something to listen to while I did it. Featuring tracks from Nine Inch Nails,Moloko,DJ Shadow and several other cool, robot-friendly musical types.
