“I used to dance with my daddy, yeah!”

Here’s an attempt at being topical.

The last few weeks have brought us new albums by Daft Punk, Siouxsie, and Underworld. Goldfrapp’s forthcoming album has been leaked. Britney Spears continues to be a pop wreck, with her little sister now joining the team. Led Zeppelin took the stage together for the first time since 1985. Scissor Sisters released a fan-only single limited to 300 copies that subsequently pissed off a lot of the fans. I saw The Rapture in concert twice this year. Green Velvet working with Chicago house legend Jamie Principle makes me very happy.

Buster’s presence is helping me make it through the stress of my day job and of the holidays, and when I’m recording a new mix he sits next to my laptop and watches me intently.

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.

Remember when DFA was going to save indie rock? I was particularly fond of The Rapture and had just fallen in love with The Juan Maclean. Now it’s five years later and Tim Goldsworthy has left DFA after producing the brilliant Hercules And Love Affair album, while James Murphy has released his third (and supposedly final) disc.
