I have Bytor Peltor's tape. I'm not ready to review it yet, but I've listened to side one and enjoyed it.

I was fortunate enough to receive a mix tape from Paulybee this time around. It's entitled, 'I Know I Need My Head Examined' and it's a wonderful mix. One of the enjoyable things about trading tapes is hearing things that are new to your ears. Paulybee has included several things that were new to my ears.

The opening track has some wonderful haunting female vocals. From LCD Soundsystem thru the end of side one is nothing short of pure mix tape genius. Roller-skate Skinny starts off side two and any My Bloody Valentine fan would find the track enjoyable. Of course, Paulybee follows up this track with a MBV classic, "Glider." This very well may have been the first Aidswolf I've ever heard......not sure what to think after a couple of listens?

The art work is all the way fun. Sort of a cross between Pink Floyd's, "Atom Heart Mother' and Erasure's, 'Cowboy.' (will try to scan and post under mix tape artwork)

Fuckin' A. I absolutely adore that Prolapse album. I memorised all the words to it at one point, I reckon I could still drag them up if called to at gun point. Good work Mr B.

Edit: Also, I remember Mick 'Archaeologist' Prolapse buying me and my mate drinks when we were lowly 14 year olds when they supported Urusei Yatsura around the 'Slain by...' tour. Happy times.

THANK YOU - THANK YOU - THANK YOU for letting me know you received it. I put a good bit of time in to that tape. Love or hate it, I'm anxious to hear what you think. Side B may be a little on the difficult side : )

Ah good!! Took a month longer than it should have, but it helps when the address is correct.

Also, the other tape is from Sonicl.

Give us a shout when you want a tracklisting. This is the round 7 tape, yes?

I would imagine that Glice's tape and mine will be quite different. Hopefully an interesting listening session for Mr Nobody.

Mine is great. If yours is different, it must be shit. Are you sure you want to commit to that statement?

Is your definition of "great" in mixtape terms any better than your definition of "great" in headwear terms? My tape will not necessarily be "great", but it will hopefully be enjoyable. Which is far more important than greatness, don't you think? Oh, by the way, your fly is undone.

Two things: First, that hat fucking rocks. Second, my fly can't possibly be undone because I'm naked on account of not going to work today. IN YOUR FACE.

Bump, to remind me to review Bytor Peltor's excellent tape when I get home. I feel very bad that I've not reviewed it before.

Okay, Bytor Peltor's tape:

The tape is called "The Informal Swing of Erotic Fancy". One hell of a name... very intriguing. The cover, I will attempt to scan (my scanner is playing up) and post later.

Side One of the tape is titled the same as the tape itself, and consists, I think (but obviously correct me if I'm wrong), of a compilation of Perez Prado tracks. The first I know well - Guaglione, otherwise known as "The Tune From The Guinness Advert" - but the rest was new to me. I wouldn't count myself as a Perez Prado fan having listened to this, but I certainly wouldn't switch off if I heard some of his music was about to come on the radio, and if I was to hear that there was going to be a documentary about him on TV or radio, I would definitely make a note to check it out, as the tape has prompted me to want to learn more.

Side Two of the tape is called "NWW A Monument To Perez Prado". Because my more recent experience of live NWW wasn't a particularly positive one, it took me a long time to get round to listening to this. Having finally done the deed, I am now more confused than ever about how I feel about them. They really are an enigma, awful one time, brilliant another. I can only describe what I heard as like being in a flotation tank, it is so beautiful and (very unexpectedly) soothing. Some of the loveliest ambient-type music I have ever heard. I PM'd Bytor Peltor to find out more about this music, and the best thing I can do is to quote his reply (I hope you don't mind, BP):

Quote:
Originally Posted by Bytor Peltor

01. Monument To Perez Prado - 0.52
02. Approaching Darkness Fish - 3.38
03. Darkness Fish - 1.27
04. The Standard Of Table Daddy - 7.17

The next track is the title track of the NWW ep, 'Funeral Music For Perez Prado.' It's over 33 minutes long and while it's playing, I mix in three additional tracks at different times.

05. Funeral Music For Perez Prado - 33.29
01. Home Is Where The Hurt Is / Monument For Perez Prado - 6.42
02. Livin Fear Of James Last - 6.56
03. Yagga Blues - 6.25

06. Easy Listening Nightmares (9.28) - This last track is from the 'Alice The Goon' ep.

All of the music on side two was inspired by Perez Prado. It's my understanding that Mr. Stapleton aka "The Head Nurse" was addicted to large amount of Perez Prado music and I'm sure some sort of chemical substance contributed. This period of Wound music is unlike any other. A Perez Prado tracks starts off Side A of your tape. I also sprinkled in "short burst" of Prado sounds throughout the Woundness on Side B. At times, there were three to hours things playing at the same time on Side B. I listed each track length so you can kind of see how it all came together.

Let me know if you want the track listing for Side A.

I had to quote all that to show just how much work Bytor Peltor put into this mix (and how deserving he is of having got to see a review much much sooner than this). I'm actually quite moved that such effort has been put into a tape to be sent away to a stranger.

I'm not sure if it's the tape's original intention, it has become a regular fixture on the kitchen ghetto blaster when I'm cooking, and I can think of no greater praise from me than that.

Thank you, Bytor Peltor. You make a damn fine mixtape.
