be a part of the doll squad

a few years ago i organised a mix-tape exchange for like minded blowupdoll fans. it worked really well and loads of new music was shared and discovered. it's how i discovered 'the name game', the emmanuelle theme and luna parker.

this year i would like to invite you to join in and make a mix-tape that i can post on blowupdoll. i know there are so many of you out there who suggest songs, leave comments and send me music and i 'd love to get you involved for this mixtape special!

all you need to do is make a zipfile that contains 10 - 12 songs. choose or create a picture cover, and write a brief introduction to your mixtape then email it to me- i am happy to host the zipfile and i will post it on here. if you have a blog, i will include a link to your site too.

your mixtape must be doll themed! it's ok to include songs posted on blowupdoll in the past, the songs can be in any language and from any era but they must have female vocalist and be aimed at the blowupdoll reader.

DO IT!

i look forward to hearing from you...
(my email can be found just below my picture on the left!)

synth doll


ok ok ok, so we all know this song. we surely must agree that it is the height of 80's french electropop. we must also agree that we are forever indebted to jacno for his part in it.
now lets watch lio shake her head, swing from side to side in a sulky fashion in a short red leather skirt!

go christine go!

CHRISTINE PILZER - CHAMPS ELYSEES
this is how i feel right this very second!

four king marvellous

THE FOUR KING COUSINS - I FELL
these four doris days in shift dresses released an amazingly psychedelic sunshine pop album in the late 60's. and the songs never fail to fill me with joy. i hope this brings you some happiness too.

hunt the pussy

LES PETITES SOURIS - CE N'EST PAS TRISTE
this is my favourite song from the short lived les petites souris. this group also features blowupdoll icon pussycat on drums (not sure where she is in the picture- on the far left?)

cool jerk

CAROLINE - BACH ET JERK
this song is slightly mental (just check out the random cover) but the contrast between classical and groovy works really well.
