I toyed with changing the name of the mix to just Whiplash, taking a note from the Post-Concussion Mix of 2010, due to this past weekend’s events leading to whiplash & insurmountable pain. Not to mention, the lovely cover by Colette Saint Yves mimics whiplash & reminds me of a doll I have named Princess Death, named after you guessed it: Death from The Seventh Seal. Cover replaced on 3/16/13.

Finished on HalloweenSmelt is a 60 minute mixtape that is quintessentially a MIX, the Farced way.

Side A (first 29 minutes) starting with Bene Gesserit‘s spastic and “spooky” industrial, tape comp-only released gem preceding a hauntingly comforting New Beat sounding Further Reductions demo leading this techno-laden portion into a Marc Trauner sobriquet release. Alongside Traversable Wormhole,  Age Coin’s ticking time bomb, (initially released on cassette via Posh Isolation, soon to be issued on vinyl), Rrose & Entro Senestre who just had a release on L.I.E.SFurther Reductions will have their first LP released soon on Veronica’s Cititrax.

Synth laden Side B includes a wonderful mix of  rarities & more singles from ever inspiring peers. Starting off with a lesser known played, but typically emotional Parade Ground track leading into rare Finnish post-punk by Geisha, contemporary one woman wonder & synth goddess: VOID VISIONAndi Arroganti whose website  reads “This Internet site is exclusive, even so exclusive that it de facto is no internet service'” (note to self), Danish Post-Punk from 1980, demo from buds Figure Study, Christiana’s Delphic Oracle single that I’ve been wholeheartedly obsessed with, and queen of ArabWave herself, Faten Kanaan‘s dreamlike single that is absolute mirth finished off by the underwater world created by Hanjo Erkamp, ex member of Ende Shneafliet.

All in all, there are a lot of unplanned synchronicities in this mix with the lyrics, titles and sampling, as there are in life but I couldn’t be more happier about it.

This past September marked seven years of Farced being in cyberspace. I dabble in thinking of pulling the plug all the time, especially now that it’s been seven years. 7 is a number of completion and frankly the amount of money I spend on webhosting & the srsly.tv domain per year, out of my own pocket with no ads is adding up, considering I don’t post regularly. However, I do get messages, especially lately about my blog & mixes. So Farced will be up, with small updates here and on the F*acebook page. More mixes here.

If my back weren’t fucked, I’d post a photo of me bowing out, but alas, see you on the flipside.

Back in August I made a 90 minute mixtape aptly titled Fliehen. I posted it to Soundcloud but (as usual) not being satisfied with the final results, I made it private planning to re-record it. I finally just let it be, especially since the 7th birthday of Farced came and went.

I made a quick 60 minute mix for Rituals a few days ago in the spirit of Samhain.

“Have you ever fantasized about waking up in a mental hospital with no idea how you arrived in such a place? The yelps and moans of your fellow patients (detainees?) echoing throughout the foreboding corridors as you stumble from hall to hall to find an exit. Where are the authorities? Why am I here and (more importantly) how did I get here? Hospital employees only wish to sedate you and return you to your decrepit quarters. Your only chance for freedom is to attack and flee. You sprint past one white door after another praying to find daylight under the maddening flicker of endless fluorescent lights. You’ll likely die before you find that elusive exit, but never stop running. All the while the other patients’ moans continue unabated.”

Happy Halloween!!!


In response to this past week’s viral video of Dolly Parton’s “Jolene” slowed down, I decided to slow down Strawberry Switchblade’s 1985 cover  of “Jolene” in true Farced fashion:

I originally planned to play it slowed down tomorrow night while DJing with Christian of Cult of Youth but decided, hey! Why not make it go viral because it sounds much better than both originals and the pitched down version of the original. It sounds a little like NADA! era Death in June (surprise) when slowed down to 33% which I’m debating on posting.

Original Strawberry Switchblade cover:

But if you’d rather hear it live, you can just come visit us at Over The Eight tomorrow!

 


Here’s a 90 minute tape I made on 10/24/11 that I never got around to posting on the blog or even the tracklist… but has gotten quite a lot of play on my soundcloud. I started thinking about this mix while reviewing all the mixtapes I’ve made for people that are long gone. I dubbed the next tape I made for this person, but not sure I dubbed this for myself especially since I believe there are some bonus songs I added in. Good thing I re-recorded it so he could listen to it at work! I’ve always loved this mix especially since a lot of love went into it (what a wonder being smitten can do!). I’d get a lot of requests for where to download/purchase this mix at my last two public workplaces (who wants to help with business cards?!). Always found myself wanting to listen to this mix on rainy days. Titled in German (see Ohne TitelWeltschmerz & Dunkelheit mixes, obviously a recurring theme).

Features Hot Guts Demo, rare starter track by The Eternal Scream, Paul Nova, Pavilion 7B, This Heat, The Voyagers’ “Distant Planet” (heart swelling!),  one of my favorite Dead Can Dance songs, etc. This was a mix fine tailored for the recipient, especially with the secret Hare Krishna inspired Slits song from the Peels Sessions following “Earthbeat” which I myself cropped long ago. I could go on and on… As usual, a mix of rare and well known goodies, check the tracklist below.

The Eternal Scream – Child
Sisters of Mercy – Heartland
Tuxedomoon – An Affair At The Soiree
Chris & Cosey – Heartbeat
Pavillon 7B – +
Valerie Desperiez And Eric Abitol – Substance M

De Press – Total Corruption
Asylum Party – Green Wisdom

As mentioned in the last post, I’ve been getting asked for cassette copies of my mixtapes. If you’d like a copy of this tape, I’ll try to hunt down the original and dub it or start over from scratch. Or if you’d like dubs of any of  of the mixtapes I’ve made over the years, shoot me an email!

Also if you’re in NYC tonight (July 31) I’ll be DJing with Christian Count (Cult of Youth) at Nothing Changes  (Home Sweet Home) for Lost Tribe & Anasazi live! Details here.

Mixed the 90 minute Sentinel Mixtape into one giant mp3 for all of you still reading to enjoy! It sounds a lot better than the tape, aside for a technical glitch at 1hour and 5 minutes. Oops! I’m not perfect and have recorded this mix so many times over months that it’s at a moot point.

Here’s an updated pic of the tape the way I sent it off to Denmark, with a pouch I had to carry it around in to make sure the case didn’t get scratched…

See original post for full track listing and mp3s of each side respectively.

People have been asking me for dubs of a lot of mixtapes I’ve made over the years, if you really would like to purchase one, shoot me an email!

Been listening to a lot of these tracks repeatedly the past few months… decided to make a mix. This time I’m keeping the tape. Only sending tapes out under Generous Moon from now on.
