“Omina, doke doe ominea…”

At one time I’d found an article on the web where the members of Big Pig gave the translation of that phrase, but for the life of me I can’t find it. Maybe it was Aboriginal in origin?

This week’s mix is back to basics. Sometimes I tend to over-think the tracks, but really, this is what a typical episode of the show sounded like. This is why we had an audience.

Losing My Mind by Pet Shop Boys
Blow The House Down by The Wee Papa Girl Rappers
Rains On Me by Heavenly Bodies
Don’t Crash by Front 242
Hearts & Minds by Nitzer Ebb
Don’t Walk Away by Cabaret Voltaire
Burnin’ Up by Jamie Dee
Running by Information Society
Get Your Body! by Adamski featuring Nina Hagen
Situation ’90 by Yazoo

“I’d like to see you in the sewers of my mind…”

Now this is more like it.

Sometimes a mix just comes together with a real groove, and feels effortless. I love this one. The transition from Losing My Mind to Blow The House Down was always a personal favorite.

Heavenly Bodies was recorded by Robin Guthrie of Cocteau Twins. Jamie Dee’s Burnin’ Up is built around a sample from Magic’s Wand by Whodini, a 1982 hip hop track that was co-written and produced by Thomas Dolby.

“Each and every one of you, make it internal!”

It was not uncommon on The Beat Bash for a pop band like Duran Duran to rub shoulders with a much harder act like The Final Cut (with vocals provided by Chris Connelly, of Revolting Cocks/Ministry/Wax Trax fame – and formerly of Finitribe).
