THE MONDAY LIST #21: Cassette Culture

Advances in technology and new ways of musical distribution, mainly the internet/file sharing, have led to a steady decline in the use of cassettes in recording (home or studio) and more so the act of selling your music on cassette.

So imagine my joy when Civil Civic made their EP “1” available in tape format earlier this year. I didn’t order mine till August and thus i missed out on getting one of the coloured versions but i did manage to get my hands on the EP ….just. Two days after i ordered mine, i got an email saying that they had just sold out! But thankfully i got one of the last numbers of these limited edition beauties. It’s hardly been off since. I love the sound of a cassette and Civil Civic’s music sounds just that little bit scuzzier when it’s blasting out of a tape deck.


This particular track is off the Run Overdrive/Fuck Youth split they released in July.

MP3: Civil Civic – Fuck Youth

Civil Civic may be helping to keep cassette culture alive but they’re not alone in their love of the of the amazing musical rectangles.

MP3: Elliott Smith – See You Later

Dayve Hawk aka Memory Tapes seems to be a huge cassette fan. His current alias is a mash up of his two previous recording monikers “Memory Cassette” and “Weird Tapes”.


Glasgow’s West End has a pretty cool little pub called Radio. The walls are adorned with tapes, boomboxes and vinyl. It’s one of the coolest little hang out places in the area. It’s been my favourite haunt of the last month or so, even pushing The Captains Rest into second place. They have a mass collection of all sorts of music on cassette ranging from early punk singles right through to the Street Fighter soundtrack. They also make the best Southern Comfort with ginger beer in town. I also love the very cool little table football game they have but i won’t go into too much detail as i don’t want to embarrass Gustav……………….Ok, you twisted my arm, i’ll go into detail. I beat him 9-1, 8-2, 10-0 and 9-1 again all in the space of about 5 minutes. Although to be fair i am pretty fucking good at it 🙂


Remember the days when having a tape player in your car was cool?  Now it’s all sub-woofers and bluetooth connections. What next? Spotify direct to your car dashboard? (If you’re listening Spotify guys then i came up with that idea first! So if it happens, gimme a cut.)

Don’t get me wrong, i’m by no means a technophobe  but i do love my retro music stuff. I have a happy medium though because in all honesty i do love my iPod as well. I’d kinda be lost without it.

$elling Out (Out $elling)

$elling Out (Out $elling) i$ thi$ weekend$ mixtape. I came up with the platform for thi$ mix during my night$hift$ in the early $ummer month$. I thought it would be a good idea to have $ong$ that were “commercial” and have chopped/ma$hed/$pliced/de$troyed ver$ion$ of them all on a mixtape together and i al$o decided, that, ju$t to take away from the whole ma$h up feature i would throw in a few remixe$ of $ome other “commercial” $ong$ i like a$ well. I fir$t $tarted putting thi$ mix together in June, i let $ome friend$ hear a demo ver$ion of the mix at a pre-Union of Knive$ BBQ on the 25th of June….the night Michael Jack$on died……the mix went down rea$onably well but there were one or two element$ of it that i wa$n’t happy with $o i changed a few bit$ and bob$ and made the fini$hed article. It took me quite a while to get round to fini$hing the mix a$ a whole and there wa$ one $ong that no matter how much i altered i couldn’t fix the quality, $o i’ll apologi$e in advance for the bad $ound quality on the mp3 of the Metro $tation remix, it i$ noticeable, you can hear the $ound drop radically and it $ound$ really di$tant but thankfully it only la$t$ a few minute$ then the quality i$ back to normal for the re$t of the mix. Once again, plea$e accept my apologie$…i’ll make up for it with $omething $pecial.

THE MONDAY LIST #2: The Top 10 Animal Related Song Titles

I was having a random conversation over the weekend with a friend about the band Miike Snow and their song “Animal” and it kinda inspired me to make a list about animals and their involvement in music. Whether it be in song titles, band names or lyrics.

And i just came up with a list of Animal Related Song Titles from bands that i like. Feel free to download the songs. (remember to have patience when downloading and check the instructions on how to do it correctly!)

Dog in headphones

There’s certainly a “wolf” tone in the list but it’s not intentional, just ironic i suppose. If you can think of anymore please feel free to leave your suggestions.

MP3’s
1. Miike Snow – Animal
2. IAMX – Bring Me Back A Dog
3. Bon Iver – The Wolves (Act I and II)
4. Nine Inch Nails – March Of The Pigs
5. The Kills – Cat Claw
6. TV On The Radio – Wolf Like Me
7. Eighties Matchbox B-Line Disaster – Chicken
8. The Cure – The Lovecats
9. Pendulum – Tarantula
10. Spinnerette – All Babes Are Wolves

Cat Power had decided to take her show a little too far

Cat Power had decided to take her show a little too far

Next Monday i’m going to put up a top ten list of animal related bands. Example:- Eagles Of Death Metal. 

To finish the post i thought i’d put up a video that puts a different spin on the now famous Cadburys advert featuring a Gorilla and the Phil Collins (*shivers*) song “In The Air Tonight”. I personally hated the advert but i like this version.
