A note from home.....

Birmingham boy Regis has produced this mix for FACT entitled Built on Sand: A Birmingham Sampler 1978-86. It's not what you'd expect from the man behind British Murder Boys and Sandwell District. Both Regis and Silent Servant have expressed their love of 'other' forms of music than their trademark techno, and that's what's showcased here as FACT say:

"The mix concerns itself with Birmingham's vibrant but infamously fragmented and undervalued punk and post-punk scene of the late 70s and early 80s, and features amazing music by familiar artists like the Au Pairs and Swell Maps as well as more obscure nuggets from the likes of Spizzenergi. Mixed and edited with all the punch and precision we've come to expect from Regis, this is a blisteringly enjoyable listen and an invaluable history lesson to boot. Download it, and enjoy. "

As a Birmingham boy, I'd recommend everyone downloads a piece of the "Bermuda Triangle of success" that falls between the M6, M5 and M42. It makes for 'different' listening at least....
