Decorated Playlists - Music + Design
Half Ton

Half Ton

Another guest playlist, this time from old friend and record nut Jean-Paul Séculaire of Right On!. The tracks are recorded from Jean-Paul's original vinyl 45s and celebrate 50 years of Jamaican and Trinidadian independence.

Indie rock pop

Guest Playlist 1

My first guest playlist comes from the wonderfully talented Michela Chiucini and features a selection of mostly Italian indie/rock/pop tracks.

Cod Reggae

Cod Reggae

As a rule white people should never be allowed to make reggae music, there have been a few noteable exceptions however.

La Musique Fran├žaise

L'anatomie de la Musique …

A selection of outstanding French tracks from the mid 60's to early 70's that have that essential French sound that I love.

Shapes

Shapes

A playlist for those who know a parallelogram from a equilateral triangle.

On My Radio

On My Radio

I recently got rid of my TV and as a result I've got into listening to the radio again. So Here's a bunch of songs about the radio.

Kill Your Television

Kill Your Television

I first got into buying records properly in about 89/90 when was around 13 and this selection of tracks represents some of the early stuff I bought. Some well known, some not, all remembered fondly.

Over The Rainbow

Over The Rainbow

Richard of York gained battle in vain. All the colors of the rainbow in one playlist.

Count To Ten

Count To Ten

A varied playlist done strictly by the numbers, with no deviation or repetition.

Run For Cover Part Two

Run For Cover - Part Two

Run For Cover returns for the sequel (or part two, if you like). This time I've gone for some not-so-weird cover versions.

Cash Is King

Cash Is King

They say that money is the root of all evil. This playlist features tracks that both lament and celebrate the 'mean green'.

It's All In Your Head

It's All In Your Head

That's right, it's all in your head, or maybe not, I don't know. A playlist for all those who have trouble getting things either in, or out of their head.

Mash Ups

Mash Ups

Yes I know that mash-ups aren't fashionable any more, but I don't care. I view music in much the same way as design, I don't worry about fads or trends, I simply focus on what I like. This is a set of mash-ups I used to play out a few years back, that I think have stood the test of time well.

Origin Of The Species

Origin Of Species

A playlist dedicated to our furry cousins - the Primates. And why not? We weren't so different once upon a time.

Outerspace Ways

Outerspace Ways

If you find Earth boring, just the same old same thing, c'mon and sign up with Outerspace Ways Incorporated. This is a selection of Space themed tracks that I really like.

Run For Cover

Run For Cover

I've always had a fascination with obscure (and often bizarre) cover versions. For me the perfect cover is different in mood & tone to the original, yet still recognisable enough to let you know it is an interpretation and not an original composition. Here are 6 of my all-time favourites.
