FatCat Records Podcast #87 - Les Inrockuptibles
JD from Les Inrockuptibles has put together this mix for us.
"I started on cassettes, went on to mini-disc, then CD-R, then USB keys, then streaming playlists.
As far as I remember, I have always made compilations, with passion & love. I have sent mixtapes that said more about me and my feelings that the longest love letters. Songs have have always spoken more elequently than me - I leave them to do the talking.
When we started Les Inrocks magazine some 26 years ago, the idea was to put faces on these tracks : each month, we interviewed the musicians we loved, put these interviews together and turned our mixtape into a mag! This mixtape is what I would have taken for a boat trip from Brighton beach.
There is no logic, no hierarchy, no connections : just a starting point and then a trip into my record collection.
Oh dear, it sounds melancholic, again!"
