    Remember this thread from way back in the glory days of muxtape? Well, now I want to start another one and thanks to discovering the existence of 8tracks, well I think we can do it.

    So it's the end of the world and you are one of the few survivors wandering around. During the long tedious hours of looking for food, water, gasoline, weapons, ammunition, and fighting off the occasional mutant biker gang you need to listen to some music that fits the situation you are in and perhaps even make things seem less horrible. I dunno. You have a music player that runs on solar power. What the hell.

    I've created an 8tracks account in the hopes that the wonderful people in Whitechapel might share some music that they would like to listen to when the world is destroyed. Share one song, maybe two or more. Whatever. When one mix is filled, move on to the next one and so on. Who knows? Maybe we'll have a nice little library of music dedicated to the post-apocalyptic future.

    name: postapocalyptic
    password: whitechapel

    just click on the latest mix and click on "edit tracks" on the mix page. And when you're done DON'T FORGET TO CLICK SAVE.

    If you update on the account, leave a post here and let us know! let's keep this going as long as we can!

    Mixes so far:

    Just Walk Away
    Our Settlement Needs Women
    I Look At The Sky
    Avoid The Cities...
    The 'Dust' Is A Spore
    What Once Was Ours
    'cause All our Heroes are Bastards, 'cause All our Heroes are Thieves
    Salvation is at hand...
    They Come Out At Night To Feed
    10,000 Years
    They Come Out At Night To Feed
    Long Live The New Flesh

    whenever someone says Apocalypse, Rules by KMFDM always pops in my head first.... :x

    Adding a Dog Fashion Disco song (the last muxtape had "Mushroom Cult), went for something a little less fun.
  4.  (5524.13)

    J-Stat - Brunner
    Excision - No Escape
    Ital Tek - Deep Pools

    Smokey shadow fucks all around
  5.  (5524.14)
    Just added the Godspeed You! Black Emporor classic "The Dead Flag Blues". When I get my four minute warning I'm going to listen to the start of that track.

    Tacopunch, yours have been saved (make sure you hit the save button at the end of the edit process) and mix two is now published:

    Just Walk Away

    Ginja, you can add your track to end of mix two, or use it later. I'm not sure what you wanted to do. However, I figured 20 minutes of GYBE was ok for one particular mix.

    Robin, can you put a note about hitting "save" on your intro when you're next editing it? Save people dropping songs.

    Barring any problem with songs not being saved into mix number three, I've added Roky Erikson - Burn the Flames and The Carrie Nations - Once I Had Love, which might not be immediate choices, but in my head the montage of apocalyptic sequences is greatly aided by both songs.
  6.  (5524.17)
    The Killing Moon - Echo and the Bunnymen

    Bob, I saved yours in. I think the rectangle only likes me.
