We Shot A Mix 2.3-- Fight Bite

To cut through all the bullshit, I'll just tell you: the mix Fight Bite has put together for us is incredibly diverse, accessible, and a lot of fun... the perfect soundtrack for a relaxing summer evening.  You'll find a little bit of everything on here, from 60's girl pop to garage punk to twee to dance pop, and all of it is perfectly constructed with mood, track sequence and the element of surprise in mind.  You can hear a lot of things that might have influenced Fight Bite's music on here, and a lot that absolutely didn't, but the balance of hits and rarities works very well together, and you'll be pleasantly surprised at how this collection of songs spans decades and styles yet remains quite cohesive and purposeful as a whole.  Give it a try.  Here is the download link and here is the tracklist:

1. Yesterday Once More, The Carpenters
2. All Dressed Up In Dreams, The 6ths
3. The Dum Dum Ditty, The Shangri-la's
4. He's a Rebel, The Crystals
5. The Three Bells, The Browns
6. Western Union, The Five Americans
7. Little Latin Lupe Lu, The Kingsmen
8. Tell Me, The Rolling Stones
9. Cocaine Blues, Luke Jordan
10. Two Faces Have I, Lou Christie
11. Someone I Know, Margo Guryan
12. The Kiss, Judee Sill
13. Somewhere in China, Shop Assistants
14. Final Day, Young Marble Giants
15. Don't Leave Me This Way, Thelma Houston
16. Vogue, Madonna
17. Cheese and Onions, The Rutles
18. Outdoor Miner (Long Version), Wire
19. Male Masturbation, Urinals
20. Thrash Me, Malaria!
21. So Young But So Cold, Kas Product
22. Your Silent Face, New Order
23. Joan of Arc (Maid of New Orleans), OMD
24. Like an Angel Passing Through My Room, ABBA

i dunno if that was really kyle or not but it was funny. Fight Bite are very nice, I especially love Judee Sill and it makes sense she would be on a Fight Bite selection. She is on the list, not the man-crush list but some other sort of list, she's on it...the sufferer's list? The god list? Yeah, Judee Sill's on the sufferin'-lookin'-findin'-knowin' about god/life list. I just wish I had my own computer to hear these mixes

Hey Colin Carter can you give me music lessons? Like teach me the ways of properly adjusting once taste and preference (oh and ears) to recognizing good music? I'd also like to develop some acute musical analyzation skills to futher my cool points with anorexic ladies? Can this be made possible? If so please let me know through this blog as I don't have a working email address or phone number. Like a bubbling teenage girl who's heard John Mayer for the first time I await your response.

this is a fun mix. don't bother comparing it, or any other mix to the
ones someone else made.

it just makes you look like a closed-minded butthole.

as if being a close minded butthole is a bad thing. There's a reason people are close minded and buttholes. Its because people like you think everything or a lot of things are good. Leave it to us close minded buttholes to keep checks and balances on your sorry taste for music.

I believe WSJR readers and comment posters to be a pretty accurate depiction of the self proclaimed music afficionados in Dallas. Meaning, their complete lack of researched referential critique and their obvious sleave wearing predilections often warrant little scrutiny or attention. It is truly a shame WSJR can't foster a more robust dialogue in these comment sections that actually illuminate ideas and feeling expressed in art and music. I guess this Dallas demographic raised on IM'ing and Observer reviews can only express themselves in four letter words and and two word sentence structures(ex "This Sucks")

I'm not expecting David Toop quality soliloquies, but just something to ponder beyond Kyle's gayness and Sally's holy vajayjay bashing, and whatever else you trite fools deem worthy to post over, and over, and over again.

It's really a shame, because I admire the work that the administrators of this blog put into this site. I wish the readers of this blog felt more of an obligation to reciprocate the thought and time the posters have put into making this blog what it is. And it is much more than a gossip blog, as some have labeled it.

As for the mix posted today, it offers a nice selection of relatively accessible music. I won't bother offering my own review since stonedranger summed it up very succinctly. It's a good mix, nothing I haven't really heard before. Sometimes that's exactly whats called for, something that takes you home. The comfortability of familiarity is often enriching after exploring darker unknown territories like Shane English's mix. All in all, WSJR is offering rather fulfilling and intriguing mixes from people across the greater DFW who have better things to do than write platitudinal nonsense on backpages of good blogs.

Stepping off the soapbox...

"nightgame" is not welcome in denton.

you've burned every bridge.

we won't help you.

we won't support you.

we don't like you, and we certainly don't trust you.

no venue will book you.

if you think you were shunned before, go ahead and move back here.

you've been BLACKLISTED.

and you have enemies here. you are considered an ENEMY.

we WILL protect our community against a dangerously unmedicated sociopathic schizophrenic such as yourself.

i honestly wouldn't trust you around children and pets.

so piss off, kyle cheatham. consider yourself banished, like any other demon.

sincerely,

You are all a bunch of neurotic, paranoid sociopaths. All of your opinions are veiled. You have no balls and no friends. Eat shit all of you.

And anyone who has half a fucking brain knows that first post was not mine. And thank you, anonymous, for blacklisting me in the name of all Denton. I have at least 100 more frinds in that town than you do and I don't even know you. You're such a pussy, hiding behind your anonymity on here. I listen to REAL PEOPLE, not screen names. If you dare, tell me your real name and we'll see each other in September, you fucking pussy.

I will not stop this until we shot jr is no more. I belive you paint a horrible picture of the north texas music scene, you promote sociopathy and urge people to hide hehind masks of anonymity instead of teaching them to be proud of who they are and what the have to say. I see no point to anonymous posting than to stir up the shitstorm/make life gererally more chaotic and promote overall trashtalking and vindictiveness. I suppose there is one more reason for anonymous posting and that is it(anonymous posting) paints us all the tricky picture that we shot jr is a "popular blog" with hundreds of posters/supporters, and therefore absolutely worthy of respect. But all these so called supporters ever do is trashtalk each other and pick on those who aren't on here, at the time, to defend themselves.

This blog is childish, ugly and sadly unbeknownst to most, dangerous. It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know that you can do some real damage to personal relationships on here by use of this "fill in the blanks with whichever name you choose" name column which precedes every comment box. So I urge you, the anons(no offense, but it's true) who run we shot jr, to end anonymous posting and help make north texas a place that outsiders can respect and admire; a place that us locals can be proud of. Thanks.
