Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #018 - BlipBlop BlipBlop, otherwise known as Bitpop or Chiptunes (and quite possibly a number of other things) is a new type of music, but also a (slightly) old one. The idea is to make music using outdated consoles and computers. Bit Shifter, for example, composes entirely on the Nintendo Game Boy. Strict restrictions on creativity like this are counter-intuitive - the more you are handicapped, the more you think of clever ways to get around problems. Having said that, some of the tracks and artists here stray a fair bit from that idea. But you get the point.

1. Anamanaguchi - Sting Operation
2. Bit Shifter - Hexadecimal Genome
3. Teamtendo - Philippines Volunteers
4. Random - Sitges Savepoint
5. Kid Carpet - Jump
6. Boy vs. Bacteria - Get Naked (The Stomp)
7. Paza - Crazy Bird
8. Slagsmålsklubben - Malmo Beach Night Party
9. Linde - Ryssland
10. Nullsleep - Dirty ROM Dance Mix

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #016 - Worst Music Ever This is a collection of the worst music I could find over the course of a week. Most of the 'bad music' compilations I found contained large quantities of novelty records and other deliberately bad or wacky music, which in my opinion isn't really fair. I set myself a rule with these that only genuinely non-ironically bad music was allowed - the performers must have at least tried, in fact often they are trying a little too hard. The only other rule I decided upon was that only universally bad music was allowed. My personal choices of Westlife, Celine Dion, James Blunt and Michael Learns To Rock were a temptation I had to resist. Here instead are 21 songs I'm sure everybody will hate. I for one hope to never hear any of them again.

1. Portsmouth Sinfonia - From The Nutcracker Suite
2. Elvis Presley - Old MacDonald
3. Vanilla - No Way No Way
4. Barney - I Love You
5. Nola Campbell - Searching For My Baby
6. The Legendary Stardust Cowboy - Paralyzed
7. St Winifred's School Choir - There's No-one Quite Like Grandma
8. Pat Campbell - Mother Went A Walking
9. Devastatin Dave - Zip Zap Rap
10. Eli Kaniel - The Impossible Dream
11. P.J. Proby - Only You (And You Alone)
12. Rotterdam Termination Source - Poing!
13. Maguerita Pracatan - Hello
14. Reginald Bosanquet - Dance With Me
15. Gloria Balsam - Fluffy
16. Roy "Chubby" Brown with Smokie - Alice

19. William Shatner - Rocket Man

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #015 - Sleep

This fortnight's podcast started off as a selection of songs about sleep and moved within a few tracks to a selection of music that I could go to sleep to, getting more soothing and less intrusive as it goes on. A good deal of the sleep-based music I ound while making this was dull and artificial-sounding, which apart from being unimaginative could also be distracting. Good sleep music should be also be generally good music. This podcast is also the longest so far, as it can take me a while to get to sleep.

1. Madder Rose - Car Song
2. Robert Wyatt - Heaps of Sheeps
3. Cornershop - Sleep on the Left Side
4. Plaid - Eyen
5. Boards Of Canada - Zoetrope (Excerpt)
6. Múm - Green Grass of Tunnel
7. Curtis Mayfield - Think
8. Magnet - Willow's Song
9. Stars of the Lid - Articulate Silences Pt 2
10. Claude Debussy - Nocturnes 1: Nuages
11. David Behrman - On The Other Ocean
12. Nick Drake - Northern Sky
13. Black Tape for a Blue Girl - With a Million Tears
14. Brian Eno - Mu
15. Global Communication - 12.18
16. Kraftwerk - Ananas Symphonie

LNADJKMD is back, after a longer than expected break, and I'm back too - back in England for a year or so. Here's a selection of songs and talky bits which goes a little of the way towards painting a picture of the country of my birth. Not a completely nice picture, but that can't be helped now.

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #012 - Flying Though I'm of the traveling persuasuion, I don't take that many flights. It seems a little wasteful if I do - there's no hurry and I want to see as much of the journey as I can. Tonight I am taking a plane, though - from Hong Kong to London. I could go overland, but this time I really don't have the time or the money. Don't get me wrong, I know there's a lot of people who find flying either distressing or dull, but it still excites me somehow. It's something to do with being up amongst the clouds. They look so odd up there, it's like being in another world. I like going through thunderstorms too, though it seems to scare the other passengers.
This mix was made to listen to as you fly. An hour's listening time should cover the allowed listening time on most short-haul flights. Not all the tracks here are about flying - some I just thought would sound good up there. There's no mention of accidents at any point.

1. The Divine Comedy - Tonight We Fly
2. Girlfrendo - Air
3. The Flaming Lips - In the Morning of the Magicians
4. Clearlake - Winterlight
5. Flanders & Swann - By Air
6. Goldfrapp - Fly Me Away
7. Angela Morley - Kehaar's Theme
8. Vangelis - Blush Response
9. Douglas Adams - Learning To Fly
10. Gruff Rhys - Skylon!
11. Tangerine Dream - Fly And Collision Of Comas Sola (Exerpt)

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #009 - South-East Asia

Right now I'm taking a couple of months out to travel round South-East Asia, so I thought it would be good to have a soundtrack to accompany me along my (approximate) route. The result was a podcast that was much harder to compile than I first imagined and not really completely successful.
Having said all that, the Dengue Fever track is brilliant.

Tracks:
1. Yunnan Folk Music
2. Naxi Dance Tune
3. MoaCha Mi & Tan Tui – JungDengDeng
4. Jimmy Cliff – Vietnam
5. Country Joe & the Fish - The Fish Cheer & I-Feel-Like-I'm-Fixin'-To-Die Rag

11. Malay Folk Song
12. Tom Waits - Singapore

  2. George Harrison - My Sweet Lord
  3. Charles O. Baptista - Gospel Dynamite
  4. Judee Sill - Jesus Was A Crossmaker

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #004 - Year of the Rat Since this week is the first in the Chinese Year of the Rat, and since China is where I live right now, a rat-and-mouse-themed podcast seemed suitable.

Here's what we have for you today, then:

   1. The Walkmen - The Rat
   2. The Specials - Rat Race
   3. Mogwai - Ratts of the Capital

Last Night A DJ Killed My Dog #003 - The 1930s My original plans for this week's podcast had to be hastily shelved when I realised there were only 13mbs of space left for me to use. Instead of skipping a week here's an alternative - a mono pod with sounds from the days before stereo was even invented.
The 1930s were the decade of the great depression, but also saw the lifting of prohibition in the USA. The jazz and blues that had remained relatively underground in the secretive late 1920s became the soundtrack of the age, with big bands starting to replace smaller groups.
The music here is presented roughly chronolologically, with a couple of exceptions.

1. Cab Calloway and his Orchestra - Minnie The Moocher
2. Fletcher Henderson - Fidgety Feet
3. Leadbelly - Goodnight Irene
4. Tommy Dorsey's Clambake Seven - The Music Goes Round and Round
5. Duke Ellington & The Washingtonians - Rockin' In Rhythm
6. Charles Trenet - Je Chante
7. The Benny Goodman Sextet - I Got Rhythm
8. Fats Waller - It's A Sin To Tell A Lie
9. Andrews Sisters - Bei Mir Bist Du Schön

(p.s. if anyone has any suggestions of songs about mice, rats or robots then please feel free to leave a comment below)
