Re-Re-up of "Hold Back The Dawn" Mixtape.
A mixtape for the wee hours. Contains 80s pop/post punk,
80s esque Pop/rock, Neue Deutsche Welle and analog melodies.
01 Sketch for Summer- The Durutti Column
The first song of his first album. Boy, he sure loves
his echoy guitar, and i do to.
02 Drugs In My Body - Thieves Like Us
A reworking of the previous song and the vid is a
reworking of the "heroes" scene in Christine F. film
03 Lovely Allen - Holy Fuck
The cover was enticing enough for me to get their EP.
This song is kraut-tastic.
04 Glorious - Captain
Great Pop rock with Trevor Horn productions. The vid can be
05 You Got Me - Beta Or Vhs
More 80s throwback rock. They sound like "A Folk Of Seagulls"
fronted by Robert Smith. Vid viewable HERE .
06 Burning Up - Madonna
Of her first album, great stuff.
07 Hong Kong Garden - Siouxsie & The Banshees
Love the intro.
08 Tender Object - Orange Juice
The greatest song Orange Juice ever recorded and it
wasn't even a bloody single.
09 (Ein Jahr) Es Geht Voran - Fehlfarben
More jangley 80s guitar this time from Düsseldorf's Fehlfarben.
10 Der Kommissar - Falco
From the man who brought us "Rock Me Amadeus".
11 Morning Sun - Al Murray
Got this from the soundtrack of "This Is Britian". Great film
and great song.
12 Goodbye Horses - Q. Lazzarus
Another soundtrack song, from "Married To The Mob" and
the Buffalo Bill dancing with his fella tucked behind his legs
scene in "Silence Of The Lambs". My new favourite song.
13 Windows - A Flock Of Seagulls
B side to Space Age Love Song, and what a b side it is.
14 In The City - Chromatics
Love this track, the metronome beat and lead vocal is
super sweet. Vid is viewable HERE.
15 You Make Me Like Charity - The Knife
One of my favourite Knife song. Go HERE for a live video.
16 The Past Is A Grotesque Animal - Of Montreal
Not sure about these boys, but this song is a deffinate highlight
on the album. The urgency of the music and vocals really won
17 By This River - Brian Eno
First heard this on a great German film called "The Son's Room".
18 Echo's Answer - Broadcast
Oh i love that sound.
19 Can You Hear the Rain, Love - Richard Hawley
Eno esque track of the "Late Night Tales" and no better way to
finish the mix.
