Songs from Beneath the Spaghetti Tree Vol. 30



If anyone has recently visited and wondering what is going on, I'll repost this from earlier:

With the forthcoming changes in Mixcloud, I have decided to post all of my Spaghetti Tree mixes here as downloadable. All tracks will be separate, unlike on mixcloud, which should please some of you.

Many years ago, I used to DJ live, with my pal Manerg, in various pubs/clubs. Our main objective was to play mostly obscure stuff with the odd familiar tune thrown in, and to be as diverse as possible. So for one gig we'd play something really poppy like Soft Cell's What then follow it up with The Chills' Flame-Thrower, just to test our audience and ourselves! More recently I've been DJing online, keeping the same objective, then trying to recreate those shows on mixcloud. No speaking between songs, we never did that when DJing in the past, it just got in the way of the music and disrupted the flow.

Admittedly the first few volumes I posted on mixcloud were a bit more extreme in content, some abrupt changes in tempo/genre, or even too many consecutive songs of similar genre. I like to think that improved somewhat the more shows/volumes I compiled. There's one main theme to all of these volumes though, that being all cover art was supplied by my pal Katie for which I usually manipulated the photos to a certain degree, or left as they were.

  3. Die Wilde Jagd - Der Meister (4:15)

  7. Frankie Dymon Jnr - In the Same Bag (3:19)
  8. Alceu Valença - Anjo de Fogo (3:23)
