dean wareham mix tape

also eyed on the super highway although ours isn’t quite so much in the fast lane but thanks to BT holed up somewhere on the digital hard shoulder, here’s a rather spiffing and mellowed mix tape cobbled together by Dean Wareham for the Voice of Cassandre dudes, perfect for chilling on this rather grey groaning wet Wednesday. An hour’s worth of vocal less instrumentals to kick back to featuring a smattering of grooviness from fuxa, shockabilly, peter green, galaxie 500, martin rev and er Dean Wareham, picks of the set though surely have to Frank LoCrasto’s utterly alluring ‘simple times’, James Last’s ‘ballad of easy rider’ and the frankly awesome ‘wunderbar’ by Wolfgang Riechmann –  a kind of ghost riders in the sky meets Kraftwerk with oodles of lolloping motifs, a release sadly haunted by a sad backstory, its author never being given the chance to see the albums release following an unprovoked stabbing attack that left him dead. https://www.mixcloud.com/greggringo/dean-wareham-mixtape-n-425/

In fact here’s the ‘Wunderbar’ album in full, really is quite something.
