Silent Mixtape #1: “Where Are You, Wounded Girls?”

Yoko Eyes

Periodically we will be offering you mixtapes* hand-picked by our staff for your listening pleasure.  This first one was selected by me, and you will indeed be pleasured.

Remember, these songs are for previewing purposes, and if you like what you hear…track down the albums and buy them!  Don’t be an ass.

*Called a “mixtape” because we assume that you will dub these from your Mac onto a C60 and go cruising around in an ’82 Datsun.

  2. The Homosexuals “Neutron Lover” from The Homosexuals’ Record (1984, recorded in 1978)
  3. The Only Ones “In Betweens” from Even Serpents Shine (1979)
