Featuring : Podcast + Spray Paint


Today we celebrate the release of Spray Paint’s Cussin’ 7” in Upset The Rhythm with a mixtape compiled by SP’s own Cory Plump. It is called FAVOURITE JAMS VS INFLUENCES and if you were to estimate the mean of its vibes, the result would come quite close to Spray Paint’s own propulsive psychedelic battlefield repeato-rock. As we usually do with these mixtapes, we will refrain from revealing the track-list and let you guess in the comment box.

Whoever gets the most correct will earn an infinitesimally small yet infinitely potent moment of their time in the eye of a desert whirlwind that proxies the skin-shredding abrasive thrust of SP’s Cussin’.

20JFG podcast: Way Through

Featuring : Podcast + Way Through



There are days, in that period where English Autumn greets biting Winter, when the cold, the damp, the grey and the ochre come together like a synesthesic brew that intensifies our sensations and sharpens our memories, helping them cut through the psychic barriers of the everyday, and transforming our day into a ramble down grounds in spatial-temporal flux , swept by ghosts from the past and feelings that are part history, and part dream, ours and our forebears’.

In other words, these days do to us the same as Way Through’s wonderful music, and this mixtape that they kindly put together for us.  As usual, you can guess/identify the songs on the side if you are so inclined.

You can get Clapper is Still here.

We also use this occasion to congratulate Chris and Clare (Way Through) for TEN years of Upset The Rhythm, living proof of the power of cool + positivity, vanquishers of the evil forces of irony that so often threaten London’s karma, and summoners of many a wonderful sound creature now hosted in 20JFG’s playlist, and also our hearts.

Thank you! Here’s to another 10, at the very least!

And a small warning

Our posting schedule in the run-up to Christmas will be somewhat erratic. Apologies. But don’t worry, there are reasons for this, all will be explained, and worth it for you.

20JFG Podcast: Chevalier Avant Garde


Joining us for our infrequent Saturday mixtape club this week is Chevalier Avant Garde who eschew the bouncing temple pop of Heterotopias for a woozy desert shore.  If Peckinpah had made Cowboys Vs Aliens* and if the Aliens had killed almost everyone and fucked off before the film even started, this would sound track it quite well.  Strung out and desolate, echoing end of the pier fatalism and that unnerving, distorted optimism that you know is just about to be contrasted with a wide shot of the apocalypse.  All the good stuff basically.

Chevalier Avant Garde mixtape

Chevalier Avant Garde’s new album comes out on September 10th on Fixture Records.  You can pre-order it right here.  The first 50 pre-orders get a reworked copy of this mixtape on tape.  Go get!

*full disclosure, I have not seen Cowboys Vs Aliens.  John Carter filled up my sci-fi-flop-o-meter for this year.
