Playlist 2012 – Oct. 27 The Armada – Pirates

It isn’t often I end up doing two gigs on the same night, particularly when they’re late at night.  I generally turn into a pumpkin early.  But, I can’t resist the allure of a set including pirate music, new wave, and goofiness that only comes out of requests from a bunch of steampunk folks.

As always, the asterix denotes a request.  If you don’t know what an asterix is, or if you think I’m talking about a little comic book viking, then I can’t help you.   Anyway, on to the play list.

Voltaire – Beast of Pirate’s Bay
Echo & the Bunnymen – Seven Seas
The Beatles vs. Blondie (DJ Lobsterdust) – Glass Octopus
The Little Mermaid – Kiss The Girl (Remix)

As always, the sets that ramble all over the place and dive into various genres are the most fun, and it’s quite a challenge to get songs to mix well together.   There are one or two musical speedbumps in this playlist, but overall, it was pretty seamless and fun to hear.
