  • Dr Rubberfunk's Funky Christmas

    16 Dec 2007, 13:07 by bluetrapkit

    Back in 2004 I was asked by BBC 6 Music to put together a few 10 minute mixes of Christmas based funk & soul tunes, and by 2005, when they asked me to do 3 more, it grew into the first volume of my Dr Rubberfunk Funky Christmas series. I made it available for download to a great response, so Volume 2 followed in 2006.

    Since the Funky Halloween mix went online back in October, I've had lots of messages asking for another installment in the Funky Christmas series, so after much digging in the crates I'm pleased to announce that Volume 3 is finally here!

    i've never done one of these journals before, so excuse me for starting with a cliché. anyway, this is a list of pretty much every (name) band or artist i've seen since i started going to gigs in 1996. they're in alphabetical order cuz i can't remember the chronology to any coherent level.

    another fun aspect is that i don't even like all these bands. festival free time, support bands, and morbid curiosity all get their fair look-in. some of these bands i really hate; one of them i even came perilously close to a fist-fight with once. this should be entertaining for me if people choose comment on this, cuz they might be approving of all the stuff i actually don't like at all. like band russian roulette. so anyway:

    key:
    * = i've seen this band more than once
    ** = i've seen this band approximately between 200 and 500 times
