Just a refresher: I’m doing the ’12 Days of Mixmas’ here on YANP. I’ve asked bands (or people whose musical tastes I respect) to compile a five song mix with some uniting theme. Today’s mix is brought to you by the members of Tapes ‘n Tapes.
(BONUS MP3: Tapes ‘n Tapes – Cowbell)
Tapes ‘n Tapes have been making a huge splash in the blogging community. I know GvB has been throwing even more love their way than I have. What great kids. Anyway, they were kind enough to come up with a great theme, so check it out!
Mix 2: ‘Unions – from Wire to Peaches and Herb in 4 Easy Steps’ by Tapes ‘n Tapes
MP3: Pulp – Babies
We figured we’d start things off with the “baby makin” union, since most of us (or all of us, depending on whether you really believe that Gheorghe Muresan isn’t an alien) were created through said union.
MP3: Wire – Ex Lion Tamer
As prescribed by Colin Newman, Tapes is currently involved in a very meaningful union with his tv set.
MP3: The Beatles – Back in the USSR
Not only does this represent the union of the Soviet Socialist Republic, but it also represents the union of two of the greatest pop bands evah! (The Beatles satirizing The Beach Boys)
MP3: Pavement – Two States
At this point in the mix, we would like focus on the state of the union. In particular, the union of California, and the unrecognized state of Jefferson. The Arnold can’t have them both. We want two states, North and South. He can have the South. We want the North. Prefer to www.jeffersonstate.com for more details.
MP3: Peaches and Herb – Reunited
After breaking the union, we need to restore it. What better way is there to mend old grievances and to bring it all back home, than with Peaches and Herb? Reunited, and it feels so good.
Just a reminder that because I’m putting more things online, they’ll be online for shorter spans of time. Grab this stuff while you can!
