“It crawls into your system when your guard is down, becomes the ball the you drag around…”

This one’s a good mix of indie rock, shoegaze, and hip hop beats.

While sitting on the couch a few nights ago watching blocks of videos from 120 Minutes, my husband noted that if Curve had formed just a couple of years later, they would have had Garbage’s career.

“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).

My thought was originally to split this into two different podcasts, but as I was trying to replicate my set as originally played that just didn’t make sense. I know it’s a long show. There’s no show intro to keep from making it any longer.

This serves as a “Best Of 50 Pound Note” up to now, incorporating tracks from the Kiss The Future series with tracks that have appeared in various podcasts.

The introduction is meant to be very tongue in cheek, while the outro is an addition – I’d intended to close out my set with it, but I didn’t want any of the crowd to think I was signalling the end of the night since the Cartel Communique guys were going on after me.

The two original songs were recorded in real-time, live, as I mixed this set. In that regard I don’t think the vocals are too bad. ;)

You may recognize Zero Return as the theme music to the show. In addition to singing I played a melodica and some cowbell toward the end. Option has lyrics by LD Beghtol (New Criticism/Moth Wranglers/Magnetic Fields) and the addition of shakers.
