Sex Sux (Amen) Presents: The Undeniably Cool Mix-Tape Volume 1

Sex Sux (Amen) Presents: The Undeniably Cool Mix-Tape Volume 1

I’ve compiled a decent 7” and singles collection over the past few years, due to my frequent visits to the best record stores ever: Mystery Train in Amherst, Turn it Up! in Northampton, Armageddon in Providence.

Unfortunately, since I currently don’t host a radio show, these pretty pieces of plastic have been sitting around, gathering dust.  Sorry, I can’t stand next to my player and switch records on and off for hours.  Extreme tedium gives me a headache.  (See: high school, the real world, etc)

Finally, I recently solved the agonizing problem: I started taping these delightful vinyl recordings onto tape in order to play them in my shitty car’s cassette deck!

The first of these little grundles of joy, The Undeniably Cool Mix-Tape, is a bit sloppy, uneven, and cruelly put together.  (Side One finishes in the middle of a Comet Gain song).  There aren’t any smooth transitions or spectacular, never-before-heard obscurities.  And a few of the tracks are from full-length LP’s, woops.

But, there are hot tunes, blasphemous tales of woe, hump-tracks, grizzly bears, and overall perfect bursts of cheap punk rock.

Most of these tracks were taken from records I purchased in the past year that I had kinda forgotten about.  In the future, I’ll maybe make more cohesive compilations, maybe do an all B-Sides tape, an all-decade set, or one based around one nonsense word, like spermatozoa.

Plus, I’m currently working on Volume 2, stay tuned!

If you’d like a copy:

I’ll offer the first couple free, cuz I have a couple spare tapes lying around.  They will lack any type of art, probably.  Or maybe not.

If anyone else wants one, we can set up a barter or sale.
Perhaps I’ll figure out how to convert cassette to digital…

Either way, if you have any interest, email me here:

And, if you don’t want your music freely promoted on any of these tapes, I admire your ignorance, and yeah, email me, I’ll erase you from existence, yuck yuck yuck.

Here’s Volume 1,  plus the original album art, release year, and record label, in case you ever want to pick a copy up for your own enjoyment.

*These are all 7”s and singles unless otherwise noted.
