Sounds From the Lost Abbey 06

Back in February, I took up a challenge from one of my friends (prompted by the Gigs mix I posted) to create a mix based around songs that I’d have played at the Lost Abbey, during the mid- to late-1990s. To get a little help putting together the playlist, I put out a call for requests on Facebook, and ended up with something around 14 hours of possible songs, almost entirely pulled from requests by people who used to see me spin at the Lost Abbey.

Since 14 hours is far too long to do as a single mix, I’ve broken the requests up into multiple 80-ish-minute playlists. Here’s the sixth of quite a few to come!

  1. Skinny Puppy: Testure
  2. Nine Inch Nails: Head Like a Hole (Copper)
  3. KMFDM: Sex on the Flag
  4. White Zombie: I’m Your Boogieman
  5. Crack Machine: Simpsonic
  6. Depeche Mode: People are People
  7. New Order: Bizarre Love Triangle
  8. Pet Shop Boys: Opportunities (Let’s Make Lots of Money)
  9. Björk: Big Time Sensuality
  10. Nine Inch Nails: Ruiner (Version)
  11. Depeche Mode: Strangelove (Blind)
  12. My Life With the Thrill Kill Kult: Kooler Than Jesus
  13. KMFDM: Megalomaniac
  14. L7: Shitlist
  15. Marilyn Manson: Sweet Dreams
  16. Medicine: Time Baby III
  17. Tori Amos: Crucify

Difficult Listening Hour 09 (140 BPM)

Continuing with my loosely BPM-themed mixes, every song in this mix is somewhere between 135 and 145 BPM. And as always, this was mixed “live” and has no post-processing or editing work, so while it may not be perfect, it’s all me!

  1. Bjork ‘Hyper Ballad’
  2. LaTour ‘E (Saranijhi Sunset)’
  3. Underworld ‘Cowgirl (Irish Pub in Kyoto)’
  4. Icon of Coil ‘Consumer’
  5. Praga Khan ‘Injected With A Poison (DJ Taucher)’
  6. Billy Idol ‘Heroin (Overlords)’
  7. Front 242 ‘Happiness (Dance)’
  8. Pigface ‘Sweet Meat (Sweet Beat)’
  9. Skeewiff ‘Little Spot of Soul’
