now that was really tuff... so many good tunes for this subject and only 2 tabs that can be opened at a time. (it's okay , you don't have to thank me for going through the hell of publishing this - luckily I get deep satisfaction outta making play lists any way) This year I'm donating the swear at computer tax to ... oh I don't know - Domino records probably.. and 4AD if they bother putting a download code with their vinyl... BIG HINT.
What was the subject.. oh yeah... rivers, cool. yep very freakin' cool at the moment here.. as in frozen. if Laura Veirs (track 2) hasn't got a million noms by now I'll eat my ice cap. For those who don't know she's a geologist.. or something (here's where I'd normally do a quick search to sort out my facts from my - oh I made that up myself when bored one day.. and it kept my head busy) she has many a song written that could fit.. but the rivers flowing up hill and mermen gave this the edge.
I have three versions of Black River.. this gets into Mr Lanegans vocal (I shall wait for DsDs opinion - there's a Maps remix too)
Buck 65 what do I say - a man that rhymes Communist with optimist can do no wrong.
Brakes with 'Hold me in the River' almost as much energy and warped fun as Pixies - love 'em.
Chris T-T had to be included as the whole of London is sinking story would fit as with Bucks Riverbed series....
bored of typing now.. need to say more but.. computer will crash sooon.. hope you enjoy.... this has been my favorite compilation to do for a while. aaaarrrrrrgghhhhh!
