“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.

This installment of Past>Forward is really just a collection of older tracks I’ve been revisiting lately. The Belouis Some album was just reissued on CD with a bunch of remixes included, and I’ve recently picked up remastered discs by Thompson Twins, OMD, and Ultravox.
A lot of these songs bring to mind specific people, so this one is for Brian F, Joe, Paul, Jason, Sean, Pete, and the original Beat Bash DJs Brian P and Michelle.
