Yes, it’s true, the return of Slicing Up Eyeballs’ monthly Auto Reverse mixtape was no fluke. Here we are once again with a fresh chapter in the ongoing saga, featuring two 45-minute sides of classic alternative tracks — posted below for your streaming and/or downloading pleasure.
To re-inaugurate the series, the tape — which you can stream via Mixcloud, or download, at least for a limited time, courtesy of the link included below — features music by X, Robyn Hitchcock, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Orange Juice, Aztec Camera, The Lucy Show, Ian McCulloch and more.
For those of you on the Slicing Up Eyeballs email list who saw the recent tease about offering the mix on cassette — for anyone willing to send a blank tape and money for return postage to Eyeballs HQ — that’s in the works, if our circa-1989 cassette deck can be coaxed back into recording shape.
And if you’re not getting the weekly email list, sign up here.
Anyway, check out the March mix below — and enjoy.
