Hectic City 6 – Leaving Here

Yo all, back again with HC6 – A change of direction from the past three sets of fresh, exciting new shit – Here’s a solid hour of fresh, exciting old shit :) – A good dig through the realms of 60s garage punk, proto rock and pumping mod. Most of the tracks date from round 1964-66, with a couple of later ones, and they’re mostly from the UK (the American equivalent deserves a mix in it’s own right, as does the rest of the world!)- Anyway, some you might know, some you might not, but just putting this together has got my pulse racing 10-20 BPM faster than usual, so hopefully it’ll have a similar effect on your good selves! Enjoy :)

    Nice mix. Defninitely enjoying it. :)

    I’m guessing it was Satan’s Holiday that was the guitar version of In the hall of the Mountain King, it made me think of Takeshi Terauchi’s Lets go Classics (60s Japanese surfy versions of classical pieces), download here: http://blog.wfmu.org/freeform/2006/09/japanese_surf_v.html

    I absolutely adore these mixes. Thank you for making them and from a completely self-serving point of view, I hope you continue. I think they’re really brilliant, and love the eclecticism both within each podcast and taken as a whole (well, as whole as six might be). Cheers!

    Hey, I’ve been a longtime fan of your work and just started getting into the Hectic City. All of this shit is amazing, I love it. Not enough people in the US listen to you though. I firmly represent Kleptones in all “who is the best dj” arguments, haha. Hope to hear some new stuff soon. Keep up the great work man!

    Dont worry everyone! Haven’t you seen the front page? Mr. K is working on some “new chops”… I’m sure he has a good reason for this delay of new releases hehe. ;)
