Swish Blog Playlist Mix 12-05-05

May 12, 2005

This week has been one of highs and lows. Firstly the low of finding out Art Brut had missed the Top 40 singles chart by one place (and allegedly two copies!), which was (very) closely followed with sheer elation after finding that Liverpool had lost to Arsenal, giving Everton the fourth Champions League spot. Later on the high of meeting Amy Winehouse, and she was a real charmer too – bonus! In midweek came the low of watching Arsenal joke around with Everton; and finally was the high of having tomorrow off work (there are awards to be won and free wine to be drunk)!

So, hoping to end the week on a high I have made this mix – and bequest it to you – I hope it gives 7-0 style highs to all you Arsenal fans out there.
Making it was a tad labourious – I have a real job too after all – but I would especially recommend The Cribs track ‘Haunted’ at the end which is taken from their soon to be released / soon to be hailed-a-classic album; you should also check out Magazine’s ’The Light Pours Out Of Me’ which was recorded for a John Peel session in 1978.

Haunted's one of the weakest tracks on there! It's all about I'm Alright, Me and Mirror Kissers...
Take Drugs, Don't Eat/Take Drugs, Don't Sleep!
Great record though.
My fault about Emily Kane too, didn't buy it till Sunday.

The weakest track on there is that fucking 'Love Your Shoes' song! I didn't listen to it properly before I made the mix and it's really shit. I apologise to you all for that.

I didn't buy an Emily Kane either i'm afraid - got promo copies - tried to keep that quiet when the word went around that they'd missed out though.

Ooh L14 rock, you're right - that true love is blind song was in an earlier mix. How much do you get paid to street-team for them? Is it a salary or commission?

Chris, im not on a street-team. Just want people to see how good they are. Gotta listen to the lyrics of PAPER DOLL.
