Brian’s Mixtape | Especially for Film

Harold and Maude

Dear readers, My playlist this week is inspired by a world so ostentatious that it may even be more flashy than that of music. A medium which draws a fascination from even those who own more albums by Boyzone than…

Brian’s Mixtape | Booze

Dear readers, This week I present to you a playlist of which I am particularly proud. The subject was born from the many celebrations my dear friend Elizabeth has been inspiring of late, and the many, many toasts we have…

Brian’s Mixtape | Worldly

Eurovision Song Contest logo 2012

Dear readers, As you know, I am not generally the sort of owl to indulge in frivolities of a plebeian level. Television broadcasts such as The X Factor and Britain’s Got Talent only serve, in my opinion, to prove Britain’s…

Guest playlist | 8 undead songs by Joe Innes

I once watched a programme about the making of Michael Jackson’s Thriller. Actually, it was either a programme about Thriller or American Werewolf in London, though it doesn’t matter. Apparently, immediately after seeing American Werewolf In London, Michael Jackson picked…
