creep uh thon

Okay, I've learned. Probably better to not make any forecasts or predictions as pertaining to the future productivity or projected web-promiscuity of this so-called blog. Maybe I'll be able to put up some mixes here and there though. So. Here's one I made a few months ago, walked around listening to constantly for like a week straight and then forgot about. Plenty early 80's mutant diy fun with a little art disco weirdity thrown in too. Shitty mspaint covers made on a snow day.

eat it, my trolls

Well, I've finally been getting around to making a bunch of sweet mixes for this sorely neglected blog. Expect posts on the semi-reg in the near future, and some contributions from a few friends. For now here is a great big gob of juicy freakbeat psych-pop goodness for you all. A slightly weirder and goofier older brother to the Nuggets 2 boxed set, I guess. Enjoy!

NEW LINK 3/3/2012

Many many many thanks to The Doldrums. where a treasure trove of great New Zealand artifacts of the 80's and 90's can be found. Also the old Kiwi Tapes (discontinued, but with some very crucial links still alive) , Young Moss Tongue, and also the long-gone Mixotheque.

Hello and an M.O. of sorts...

Anyone who knows me at all is probably well aware of my rabid and incurable penchant for making mixed tapes (and cd's when so inclined, which i must say happens less). I'm afraid that I might even be incapable of enjoying music without somewhere in the back of my mind trying to fit it into a sort of narrative arc outside of its own context that is completely subjective to my own enjoyment/agenda...can't help it! I've been puttering around with the idea of an all-mix blog for awhile now, So that's basically what's going down here. Admittedly a great deal of the music will have been pieced together from other peoples' rips and blogs. Indeed, I'm almost certain that several posts will turn out to be virtual tributes in that respect, so many thanks must go out to these generous folks. The sidebar will be saturated with links to them in due time.

I hope to post, saaay, a mix a week. Or maybe twice a month would be more realistic as these can be rather time-consuming. Also, I would love to have other contributors on board so please email me at fathercannotyell at gmail if you'd like to participate on the regular, or just guest it up one time. Alightythen...


Just Another Mixtape Blog

I made this 90 minute mixtape on Christmas Day 2008 for no one in particular.
