Sounds From the Lost Abbey 08

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 eighth of quite a few to come!

  1. Utah Saints: Something Good
  2. The Goodmen: Give it Up (Batacuda Refrescante)
  3. Eon: Spice (Original With Notes)
  4. Lords of Acid: Rough Sex
  5. Blue Pearl: (Can You) Feel the Passion (Dominatrix)
  6. Messiah: Temple of Dreams (Long)
  7. L.A. Style: James Brown is Dead (Rock Radio)
  8. Human Resource: Dominator
  9. Ottorongo: Fuck You (Singalongmotherfucker)
  10. The Movement: Jump (Mutha)
  11. The Immortals: Mortal Kombat Theme (Techno Syndrome)
  12. Lords of Acid: Do What You Wanna Do (Carl Says “Do It Boy”)
  13. Praga Khan: Injected With a Poison
  14. Alpha Team: Speed (Hardcore)
  15. X Calibur: Love American Style
  16. Lords of Acid: Mister Machoman

Gigs Music Theater 1998

So this is a little bit of silly self-indulgence…but then, wouldn’t that pretty much describe this entire website? 😉

Back when I was DJing at Gig’s Music Theater, I was also running a website for the club (and though I have no way of verifying this, I’ve always assumed that we were one of the first clubs to have a website running). As part of the website, I kept track of my requests, and kept a running “top requests” list. Since I archived the website as it was when the club shut down, I still have the last “top requests” list that I posted, back in 1998. Looking at it the other day, it struck me that it could make for an entertaining playlist….

So here we are: Two hours and forty-five minutes of the top club hits in 1998, as determined by the requests at an all-ages, non-alcoholic, alternative club in Anchorage, Alaska. In other words, this list probably wouldn’t match a similar list anywhere and anytime else.

It’s a little rough around the edges in spots, but that’s cause it’s recorded “live”, with no post-processing or editing. It’s not perfect, but I’ve rarely been perfect, and I think it ended up an honest and pretty fun throwback to what you’d have heard at Gig’s “back in the day”.

As the full set is almost three hours long, I’ve posted both the full mix, and separated into three pieces.

The full mix:

Give It A Crablouse

For many years, I had the idea for a mashup bouncing around in my head. In fact, it had been rattling around in my brain for so long that it wasn’t even originally thought of as a “mashup” — just a mix I wanted to try. However, I’d been missing a crucial piece, so it never got beyond the conceptual stage…until a few years ago.

Here’s the second of my contributions to mashup culture: Give It A Crablouse.

Sources: The Lords of Acid‘s “The Crablouse” (“In Its Native Environment (Album)” and “Whatever You Do, Remain Calm (Instrumental)”) mixes, and The Red Hot Chili Peppers‘ “Give It Away“.
