I've got to hand it to Mixmaestro Sheckimus for coming through with a killer mix CD (like I ever doubted the guy). His disc is a bunch of killer tunes, great for driving (even in our recent shitty Chicago weather). His tastes overlap mine in a few places (which is a great thing, let me tell you), and he also was able to introduce me to a bunch of great bands I'd been dying to get into. It bears the provocatively minimalist title of "Mixmaster Shecky's Mix CD", and the Red Meat-stylecaptions on the cartoon at the bottom of his note were hilarious.

And the tracklist...

1) The Replacements - Bastards Of Young
2) Guitar Wolf - Invader Ace
3) And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead - Mach Schau
4) John Vanderslice - Bill Gates Must Die
5) The Dandy Warhols - We Used to Be Friends
6) Gorillaz - 19-2000 (Soulchild Remix)
7) The Detroit Cobras - Bye Bye Baby
8) The Strokes - New York City Cops
9) The Raveonettes - Attack of the Ghost Riders
10) AC/DC - If You Want Blood You Got It
11) The Datsuns - Harmonic Generator
12) The Clash - Brand New Cadillac
13) Groovie Ghoulies - Have Your Way With Me
14) Beachbuggy - San Francisco
15) Guided By Voices - Bulldog Skin
16) Super Furry Animals - Ysbeidiau Heulog
17) MC Honky - The Devil Went Down To Silverlake
18) The (International) Noise Conspiracy - Capitalism Stole My Virginity
19) The Ramones - I Can't Give You Anything
20) The White Stripes - Screwdriver
21) The Romantics - 61/49
22) Weezer - Getchoo
23) David Bowie - Rock 'n' Roll Suicide
24) Paul Westerberg - Mr. Rabbit

Thanks, MmShecky!!

The garage rock classic popularized by Them (whose version Beck sampled for "Devil's Haircut)? Wow.

Now I'm just plain mad. Everyone else is getting to talk about their cool mixCD, while I'm left here listening to regular old Yo La Tengo. Mine went out a month ago...where's the love, yo?

That's it...I'm taking my ball and I'm going home!

Sorry to revive an old thread, but I never got my mix, either. I'm a big boy and I can take it, but I'd still like a cool mix or two.

That said, would anyone be interested in trading mixes with me? Instead of taking up room on the board, you can pm me. Of course, I don't want to be making 20 copies of the mix, but I'd be interested in swapping with a few people (let's say only 3 or 4 for now).

Dreamin posted my track listing a while back. It's a glam rock/post-punk mix and it rocks, if I do say so myself.

And, in the beginning, I said I couldn't burn to cd; only tapes. That problem was taken care of before I made this mix. Interested parties will receive a shiny cd.

The Sheck Mix, Chex Mix, count me in!
I'd love to lay a nice "In Like a Lion.... Out Like a Lamb" mix on some lucky listener...in honor of the month of March of course.
