“Someone somewhere WAKE ME UP!”

Sorry this week’s mix is running late. I’m getting it in just under the wire.

I was laughing with my husband about it being unintentionally gayer than normal, what with Erasure, Paul Lekakis, and Marc Almond twice. Tears Run Rings is the track I wanted to build this mix around, and I went through three entirely different sets before arriving at this one.

Revolting Cocks is my favorite Wax Trax band, and the Fatima Mansions remix is a promo-only done by Jack Dangers of Meat Beat Manifesto – it’s actually my favorite remix he ever did for anyone (including himself).
