Mixed, Not Stirred is a weekly column in which artists curate special, themed playlists via Spotify or other mediums.
In this week’s Mixed, Not Stirred, Swilson put together a playlist full of obscure proto-punk/metal tracks. The band said the following of the playlist:
“Well, what can we say? Swilson are complete nerds. Yep. We admit it. Just look at this list! If you were to find the original vinyl of most of these titles, you could sell them to pay a couple of months rent! Honestly, we could have just listed every Chuck Berry, Black Sabbath and Blue öyster Cult song (you got one!), but that wouldn’t be as much fun as this list. This is kind of what Swilson is all about. We take in everything. We do. But we love the weird obscure proto-punk/proto-metal/psychedelic/glam nuggets that a lot you people forgot about or never heard in the first place. So soak it all in. It’s a nice trip. And then listen to Swilson. You’ll be glad you did.”
