Music doesn’t erode the mind does it?
Dedicated with love to Michael Jayston, the Jayston Mix is a funfair pickNmixed bag of favourites old and new, and a wandering down pathways both sinister and silly.
Here you’ll find beyond-classic lost sample-heroics from Biosphere, crunchy-slurred breakbeats from the antique MC Duke, Coil rubbing shoulders with Leonard Rossiter, delightfully RP-looping from the Art of Noise and splendidly mournful bubble-pop froOoOOm oOoOO. EL-P and Lordy Lloyd-Webber get along famously in a flat-share while Giorgio does a cattish double-take. Mew. N-N-N-Noosha Fox has an irresistible stammer and provides a TOTP Talk Box sensation, and the kindly ghost of Russell Harty pops up to remind you that he is gone but never forgotten.
Then it’s uphill down your way as Brian Croucher staggers through polystyrene boulders of speech in a manner defying descriptive powers of a rational mind. Unique. There’s a hidden level to remind you that computer game music + musochops = bewildering excellence while we Peter Owt with lucid melancholia and a reminder… I’ve told you. I’m a funny fellow.
