Today is going to be the next mixtape already, sorry if it’s too soon for you dear readers because it was only a couple of days ago since I did the last one.

So who else liked that because I did? Once again a few new acts appear that haven’t been on any before but some faves are also back again too. This mixtape must at a guess again has got to be from around the late 90’s, I think? I don’t know really because I didn’t put a date on any of them! We got some very big names but then some smaller ones, mainly the few Aussie acts, The Cruel Sea was pretty popular here at the time but I don’t if people care from it now? I already talked about The Tigers because nothing is there. Charlie Owen is an Aussie guitar player who normally is side man to Paul Kelly, Tex Perkins etc. but in the mid-90’s he released his one and only solo album was called Vertigo & Other Phobias and that track has another great Aussie guitar player Kim Salmon too. Don Walker is the piano player and was one of the main songwriter for Aussie 1980’s band Cold Chisel. He’s only done about three solo albums since then but also has about three albums with Tex Perkins and Charlie Owen calling themselves simply Tex, Don & Charlie. Do I need to tell you who Radiohead, Sonic Youth etc. are?
I’ll just keep asking you all, so which track/s did you enjoy the most from those?
