Never Ending Internet Mix Tape

a musical exquisite corpse. look it up.

Vol 01 / Trk 03 / (I Want to Be an) Anglepoise Lamp / The Soft Boys

“Lipstick Vogue” came out in 1978, a hell of a year for music. There are so many great songs that represent the year, and in the universe immediately adjacent to ours, I’m listing Talking Heads’ “I’m Not in Love” here. But in this one, where the Soft Boys’ genius and talent is criminally underreported, I’m using “(I Want to Be an) Anglepoise Lamp,” a brilliantly spiky blast of melody that might best represent the punk ethos: no matter how weird you are, all you need to do is pick up a guitar and you deserve to be heard.

About the NEIMT

Every couple of days, one of the NEIMT authors will post a song that is in some way a reaction to the previous song posted by another author. Every 15 songs will be packaged up with cover art and presented for download as a complete mix. The only rule is that no artist can appear more than once in the same volume.


The best way to be informed of NEIMT posts is to subscribe in the field in the upper right. You can also follow the page on facebook. We longer maintain an email list. Email is dead to us. We'd love to hear your feedback in the comments of this blog, but if you'd like to contact the NEIMT directly, email to: robb (at) agrayspace (dot) com.

Previous Incarnations of the NEIMT

You can still see the old mixes at Some of the old download links might still even work.

About Copyright

We freely admit that this blog is probably a violation of artistic copyright law. We put together these mix "tapes" as way to share great music in a way that encourages artist support and utilizes grassroots promotion by purposefully violating those copyrights. We would like to imagine that no artist in their right mind would oppose such altruistic intentions despite its bureaucratic insubordinance.
