Adam Buxton's Big Mixtape - Oddens
Mix Tape 1 - Oddens
From April, Sunday lunchtimes on 6 Music will see one half of the award winning Adam & Joe going solo on radio for the first time. With the help of the listeners, Adam Buxton's Big Mix Tape will take a weekly topic or theme and make a compilation tape for us all to share. The first Mix Tape is called Oddens and is based around weird yet accessible music - created by both well known and less well known artists
The first guest is a man who also made his name as part of a successful double act - Julian Barratt from The Mighty Boosh. Adam says - 'Julian is not only one of my favourite actor/comedians but is a big music fan himself and likes weird music almost as much as he loves jazz.'
A wonderfully eclectic musical selection includes Radiohead, Can, Vangelis, Kate Bush, Silver Apples, Scott Walker, Grace Jones, Captain Beefheart and of course, David Bowie.
