    Right it´s been long enough. Let´s get this up and running again....

    For those new to this, we had a thread were Whitechapelers were invited to share songs and create mixtapes using 8tracks to portray a post apocalyptic world. Some of these mixes were rather delightful and, dare i say it, rather fucked up. They covered situations such as rampaging skynet machines, mutant viruses, no go cities, Neo-pagan death cults, cannibal biker gangs and Cthulhu sea attacks! Check the mixes out here for a listen

    We took a break in order for people to replenish their stocks but now i think it´s time to start it up again.

    It´s very simple. Share one song, maybe two or more fo what you would like to hear when the world is over. Whatever. When one mix is filled, we move on to the next one and so on. The hope is that we can cnotinue to grow our nice little library of music dedicated to the post-apocalyptic future.

    The Log in Details for the account are
    name: postapocalyptic
    password: whitechapel

    To use, 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!

    To get things started i thought we might do something a little different, in particular a film soundtrack. I give you The Road OST (Whitechapel Edition)

    Recently the trailer was relased to the film adpatation of Cormac McCarthy´s the Road, about a man on a journy with his son across a post apocalytpic wilderness where civilisation has collapsed. the traller is below

    The Road

    So if you can think of something that you would like to hear to this film, then add it on! I´ve already added the first 2 songs

    1. The Ink spots - I don´t want to set the world on fire
    2. Crippled Back Phoenix - Burnt Reynolds

    well we have a new mix up and running already!

    For those with no future

    someone was obviously busy and made up a new one in their own time. I wonder who it was? It sounds bloody great though....

    The previous mix is still being made though. All submissions are welcome.

    Hello Icelandbob !

    I just added "Contention city" by Calexico, the lyrics seem quite appropriated :

    Through miles of waste to cross upstream
    Risking all dreams for what the surface brings
    Free like a flow that pours from your hand
    Claiming its own new river


    Love to see this thread coming back ;)

    ok i´ve been busy (or rather bored´) and i´ve put a new mix into the system...

    The Road OST (Whitechapel Edition)

    interesting start, soft middle, continuing to a HOPEKRUSHER ending. Just the way we like it!

    As for the next mix, i suggest The Quietus companion tape, after the infamous Goverment issued suicide drug from the film Children of men.

    and i promise to leave this alone so people get a chance to add something!

    Whoever put in "Stephen H." by All Angels Gone: Good fucking call. I downloaded it and have been playing it on loop.

    Also, Icelandbob: Last I checked the original post wasn't shut down. Any particular reason you started a new thread?

    @Oldhat

    no big reason. I remember i came back from a 2 week holiday and found that noone has added any more songs, so i wrapped up the mix and said that we should all take a break for a while (ended up being a month) and we should start up again. I just decided to make it a bit of a fanfare for it´s return

    Please don´t maim me overlord.....

    Now we move onto the next mix. thanks to Kimieye the title will be

    "After the war when you're all gone, and we're still here..."

    Go wild with this one. We need some good old fashioned spooky shit here....

    Oh, I haven't contributed to the last four or so mixes, but I appreciate the sentiment all the same. I actually like how far this project has been going. A HELL of a lot more mixes than the muxtape thread.

    @Kimieye

    I looked at the mix and the songs weren´t there! don´t worry, i found them and added them on. you need to make sure that you click on "save" when you´ve uploaded them all so that they stay there.

    @Oldhat
    Glad your liking the mixes. they can be kanckering to put together at times. but at least it´s freaking out my co-workers with my change in muscial listening as i source stuff for the mixes

    @ icelandbob

    thank you!
    As I was adding the tracks my wireless connection had a fucking meltdown, and I had already written the post. I did feel a bit of an Ass...
