Was that fun?

Weeeelllll, yes...I had a laugh. You've got to, really, in the face of snafu.
Technical difficulties meant that I didn't actually get on air until 8.30, so in the end my show was only 90 minutes. Several excellent tunes were missed, including at least 2 by the irrepressable Shitmat. My apologies to him, and to the others who were omitted.

Here is the actual playlist:

Ryan Hardy - Dispearhead
N'to - Time
This Is The Kit - Bashed Out
Gondwana - A Gospel Of Dirt
Space Jesus & Esseks - Mannequin Skywalker
dOOp vs Subp Yao - Can...Not
Nick Tohme - Cojones
Tinlicker - Harvest
DJ Rashad, Machinedrum & Nick Hook - Understand
DJ Rashad - Let It Go
Porter Robinson - Flicker (Fu Mou Remix)
Days N' Daze - Self Destructive Anthem feat. We The Heathens
DJ Sprinkles & Mark Fell - Fresh
Cesaria Evora - Sangue De Belrona
Nora - Feel ME
Lydia Eisenblätter - Agua
Gappy Ranks - We've Got a Good Thing Going (ft. Suga Minot)

New Show

 Thursday April 30th 2015, 8-10pm (UK time) on Radio 4A

Welcome to the return of Eclectic Music For Mind And Bodhi. In case you didn't already know, the title of my show is a pun on a famous Country Joe & The Fish album from 1967 'Electric Music For Mind And Body'.
I've gone straight back to my previous form with a show bursting with new, and often eccentric music...I say eccentric...it's not to me...perfectly ordinary, really. In fact, if you think it's eccentric, you need to broaden your musical horizons. The best way to do that is to listen to my show.
See what I did there? Ta da!

Here's this weeks playlist, including some links.

Peach Kelli Pop - Princess Castle 1987
Nora - Feel ME
Lydia Eisenblätter - Agua
The Phil Mitchell Project - Fighting Polka
Tree - The King
Polyklinik - Den
You Love Her Coz She's Dead - Crystal Deth (feat. Mia Mort)
Ryan Hardy - Dispearhead
N'to - Time
This Is The Kit - Bashed Out
Gondwana - A Gospel Of Dirt
Space Jesus & Esseks - Mannequin Skywalker
dOOp vs Subp Yao - Can...Not

Tinlicker - Harvest

The Return Of Eclectic Music For Mind And Bodhi

After having such fun filling in on Radio 4A earlier this month, I decided it was time to revive 'EMFMAB'. I've missed sharing all the great new music that I find.
I will be broadcasting a 2 hour show Monthly, on the last Thursday of the month, 8-10pm, LIVE on Radio 4A . If you live in Brighton/Hove in the UK, you can listen on regular radio at 101.4 FM.
This show will not be available to download. Be there...or don't.

During the show you can email me at emfab at wombnet dot com.
I am aiming to do a blog post the day before the show with a playlist and other details.
There will also be a mailout at that time, and a reminder 1 hour before the broadcast.
If you want to be on that mail list, just email me "subscribe".

The first show will be on April 30th...that's this Thursday...at 8pm.

Please tune in. It would be great if you could email me to let me know that you are listening.
Oh...and tell your friends.

Melokind - Zeitmaschine
Claude Von Stroke - Can't Wait

Beyond Daisies

I've got a couple more mixes to share.

Rising Ballon
63 minutes. Techno/Tech House. Mostly tunes from the last 3 months.
Dot Funk
71 minutes. My first paid gig was as a funk DJ. That was a while ago, but I still love 70s funk and soul. This is a mix created for a friend who likes funk so much she blew her speakers. True music lovers do that from time to time.

Playlists here.

Nearly spring. Odd weather here is Sussex. Windy and raining one day, then bright sunshine the next. Generally warm, though, so I think it's going be a good year for veggies with an early planting season.

 I'm currently selling my CD collection. Some good deals and some rare stuff. Come and take a look at Discogs here.


 By the way...mind your heads!

Wrapping Up

Christmas, and time for wrapping things...up. I'm going to be as brief as possible. My muse left me this year. I am happy about that. I've got many more things I want to do with life, and this dalliance with the music business was demanding far too much of my energy. There will be no more Eclectic Music For Mind And Bodhi, and there will be no more wombnet releases. I still make mixes occasionally...for fun, really, and as a sort of emotional catharsis. I thought it would be nice to finally gather them on one page, and that's what this post is really for. Here is a list, starting with the most recent. This list includes my final few shows for Dandelion Radio, which were actually mixes, rather than podcasts in the usual sense. Rgiht click and 'save target as' on the titles for download, or just click to play in your chosen media player. Tracklists for them all can be found here.

Blue Sky
66 minutes. Just techno.

Loss And Conjunction
62 minutes. Sentimental. Many of the tunes are well known, like the feelings they are meant to inspire.

Belief
60 minutes. Tricky beast, belief. A great power, under-used and abused.

Better Off Dread
67 minutes. I thinl most tunes sound better as reggae. Here's proof. All covers.

Hare Across The Rubicon
122 minutes. My final show for Dandelion Radio. I leap!

Hare
119 minutes. My Chinese birth animal is Rabbit. Now I am Hare.

Fifty
119 minutes. 50 favourite tunes compressed into 2 hours, on  my 50th birthday.
First heard on Dandelion Radio March 2013.

Hit
119 minutes. Dandelion Radio December 2012. Now this is what I call a hit parade.

Summer Ease
45 minutes. Not a great title. No theme here, just some deeply chilled out summer music.

Choice
77 minutes. An examination of the nature of choice, or lack of it. Part two of a trilogy. Part one was Mythunderstanding. Part three is 'The Rebirth Of Pan'. I've already made several versions, but I'm not happy with any of them.

Spring Poop
73 minutes. A musical letter to an old friend, concerning her daughter leaving home for college.

Muscle
60 minutes. Dandelion Radio Christmas mix 2011. 'Mr Mucilaginous's Unsentimental But Only Mildly Cynical Zmas Mix'.

Natureboy
67 minutes. Reggae. Developed from my Spring 2011 set for Dub In The Pub Soundsystem.

Mythunderstanding
74 minutes. On the nature of the power of myth in everyday life, and how we are driven and controlled by belief systems we only vaguely comprehend. Part one of a trilogy. Part two is 'Choice'.

Pearls
63 minutes. Fun with some great tunes, you swine.

Ppolidori
70 miutes. Created as a feast of samples to be chopped up by my friend Ffrancon.

Hogwash
70 minutes. Christmas 2009. What a heap of useless, expensive shit!
This was my most popular mix, downloaded thousands of times...I lost count.


There were others before Hogwash. I might post them eventually.




 Here are my parents, newly married, in Springwood N.S.W., Australia c.1951.

In a few days I will be older than my father ever was. In a couple of months, my mother will be gone 6 years. With the most profound gratitude, I release them, as I go beyond them, with them.
We are never alone.

I wish you all self knowledge. I value little else.
