Welcome to the sixth edition of the Compilation Champs South by Southwest CD.
It was great to be with you this year in Austin. Some of you are old friends by now, and some I've just met. But I hope that you enjoy at least some of these songs, all of which have meant something to me in the past year. Canadian content is marked with a maple leaf. Feel free to get in touch with your comments (jamesATconsolationchampsDOTcom).
Disgusteen (1980, from Frantic City)
Teenage Head were one of my favourite bands as a teenager growing up in Toronto. They were from Hamilton, a blue-collar steel town about 45 minutes away, and they played a gritty blend of punk and rockabilly. This song features singer Frankie Venom spouting lines from The Exorcist in a silly demon voice. What's not to love?
If You Say So (1996, from All the Negatives Have Been Destroyed)
Early Spoon. Now that they've achieved a measure of the fame they deserve, it's fun to look back on what kind of music they were playing ten years ago. …

So, in reverse order then:
20 - LCD Soundsystem
Polyrhythmic polemicists from NYC that I first became aware of when they played a Optimo at Glasgow's Sub Club. I've seen them three more times since, and they've never disappointed me - except for James Murphy abusing the crowd at All Tomorrow's Parties a couple of years back. Their first two singles, Losing My Edge and Yeah are probably still the best introduction to the band.
19 - Four Tet
Originally started as Kieron Hebden's electronic side-project from three-piece band Fridge (also featuring Adem), this project has ended up taking up most of KH's time. Influenced by folk and jazz music, and improvisational in approach, FT's gigs can vary significantly from one night to the next.
18 - Prince
