Not Radio Free Burrito – The Space Pirates Mixtape

wil, · Categories: Music

I needed a creative project to decompress between writing assignments, so I made a mixtape. It’s mostly rarities and weird out of print stuff that’s come into my world over the last couple of years, some psychobilly, 70s porn soundtracks, 80s punk, surf music, a couple of weird covers. I also snuck in a track from my friends, Uke Box Heroes. Mixed into the whole thing is a track I found from an old kiddie record in which a rocketship has to attack space pirates and everything goes to shit. It’s terrible on its own, but I think it almost works as a piece of strange art when it’s spread out in little pieces like this, broken up by the music.

This mixtape is 37.9MB and is 53:31 long. Don’t think that I didn’t seriously consider taking an extra four seconds onto the end of it for palindrome purposes.
