girlschool playlist 10/01/06

Well, another year down and what a year it has been… Hopefully you celebrated the end of 2005 and the beginning of 2006 in style. Hmmm went to The bicycle Thief and saw House of Dolls play and meet up with some interesting folk at one of the newest bars in town… Emersons Pilsner on tap and great polenta chips PLUS music that is very sweet to the ear! If you haven’t already, try it some time.

Well, Girlschool created a HOTT list of 2005 yestayear brought some real treats to the discerning listener. Some very nice re releases and K7 Records put out some choice compilations through the DJ Kick Series. Totally digging Princess Superstar’s latest album ‘My Machine’ some pretty funny stuff presented in her (un) usual electro – hippety hop way. Princess Superstar also has a few side projects too DJs are not Rockstars and Ill Disconics… check out her website and hot pics PS gets catty… meow!

On a lo-fi note: The Mixtape Crew are putting together a Mixtape zine and we need submissions from you!... anything goes as long as it isn’t indecent! Have your voice heard… maybe you would like to write a music review or would like to interview your cat and share her experiences on catnip! Whateva Goes…
