The Swarovski Mix (IMP 45, April 2009)

Like a lot of the mixes I make this has been based on me noticing a theme running through a lot of the music – usually artists names – that I have been listening to. I am making a concerted effort to be a bit more intellectual about things, but am failing dismally – the proof is clear in the title of this mix. After noticing a lot of jewels in my playlists – Emeralds, Diamonds, Crystals - I realised they were nearly all Crystals so I just went with those and came up with the most stupid, cheap name and artwork I could think of. It’s a really varied selection of music though, so I think it works. I got away with it. Just. I am under duress to stress that the Mr Crystal Face track is one of the greatest pieces of music ever created.

There. I said it.

Thanks! Nice to get a response to it. I like this one too, it;s funny. I only wanted to use new Crystal bands, otherwsie we would have had The Crystals, Crystal Waters, Crystal Method....can't remember more off the top of my head but there were a lot! Good spot on the sample in the Wavves song - you're right - that's it.
