Only chanced across this the other night but it is a thing of beauty – a mix tape by Neon Neon, the collaboration between Super Furry Animal Gruff Rhys and DJ Boom Bip. The mix is fantastic and there is not one bad track on it. It puts the work of Debbie Gibson into a whole new perspective, it is really that good.
There are so many good tracks on here, not least the Neon Neon stuff, the incredible Goblin with the theme to the Dario Argento shocker Tenebrae and the bombastic brilliance of Tears for Fears with ‘Mothers Talk’, taken from the hugely successful (and very 80’s ‘Songs From The Big Chair‘)
Here is the tracklisting – marvel at it!!!
Neon Neon: “Theme Song”
Neil Young: “Sample and Hold”
Paul McCartney: “Temporary Secretary”
Kraftwerk: “Numbers (Wicked Mix)”
Tears for Fears: “Mother’s Talk”
Neon Neon: “Raquel (Extended Mix)”
Debbie Gibson: “Only In My Dreams (Extended Club Mix)”
Janet Jackson: “Pleasure Pricipal (Eli Edit)”
Prince: “I Could Never Take the Place of Your Man”
Neon Neon: “Fuckin’ Off Cover (Outtake)”
