Sounds From the Lost Abbey 10

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 tenth in the series!

  1. Peter Murphy: Indigo Eyes
  2. The Sisters of Mercy: More
  3. Depeche Mode: Personal Jesus (Holier Than Thou Approach)
  4. New Order: Blue Monday
  5. Paul Lekakis: Boom Boom Boom (Let’s Go Back to My Room)
  6. Republica: Ready to Go
  7. Ministry: Just One Fix
  8. Stabbing Westward: Violent Mood Swings (Thread)
  9. Skinny Puppy: Who’s Laughing Now?
  10. Peter Murphy: Dragnet Drag
  11. Tori Amos: God
  12. Marilyn Manson: Deformography
  13. Nine Inch Nails: Burn
  14. The Cure: Burn

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:
