Damp Squib Minimix Fiesta

This week in the time-machine, a brand new experiment in "minimixing", inspired by the quizzical expression of the eastern gentleman pictured above. Taking four 7" records, namely:

A hhhhuge server crash at WFMU meant that this podcast didn't go out on time, but it's now available, albeit with a rather minimal blogpost. A 25 minute mix of drums, Stravinsky, Grieg, and all sorts of shattering and clattering. Perhaps the sound of a crashing server?
