Forest made one of my favorite mixes of all-time. I bought it for $5 at a 'Skate Laws' show at the Lager House. Played it out- until my tape player broke. Best part about the mix was the recurring themes: trumpeting elephants, conga drums, boisterous bass lines... weaving across the transitions. This was no ordinary mix. More of psychedelic circus act on tape. There were gorgeous tripped-out tracks, dusty R&B stomps and garage cuts. There was glam, there was more. But it all worked. It takes a sensitive ear to weave such an eclectic garment. Three cheers for Forest!

Help welcome Forest once again to Detroit as he presents "The Whip!" with Richie Wohlfeil at the Painted Lady in Hamtramck. Wednesday, 11/24 at 10pm. Sure to please!
