60 Minutes of Fear

At last, RVNG's newest release is here to rescue you from a musical rut! I imagine if you frequent this blog, you are a fan of dance music history. I've certainly spent the last six years exploring everything from funk to mnml. As my Expedits can tell you, things have been going well too. After all of this time collecting dusty old 12"s with dub mixes that sound cool until the vocal/sax/synth/etc comes in and ruins it, I need a break. I need to hear "songs" instead of "tracks", songs with distorted guitars and big choruses - punk songs.

Fortunately, Optimo's JD Twitch recently released his "60 Minutes of Fear" mix and "10 Inches of Fear" edits. The mix is an eclectic blend of punk spanning 3 decades, featuring Big Black, Crass, The Butthole Surfers, Sonic Youth, Husker Du, Black Flag, The Minutemen, The Pop Group and more. It's a refreshing change from my typical diet of drum machines and computer music. Now I'm having fun nodding in agreement with Flipper and discovering The Fatal Microbes. Twitch also took it the extra mile by digging up some old Crass records releases, getting permission from the bands and doing a 10" of DJ friendly re-edits. Now we can get crusty in the club.

Thank you for the reminder Twitch!

Order JD Twitch's 60 Minutes of Fear CD & 10 Inches of Fear 10" here. It's definitely a good deal considering you get a fully packaged mix cd & 10".

And what about that Sun City Girls track on the CD? Amazing .. I never even heard of them before.

Never imagined anyone would be listening to this shit 25 years later either!
