Here’s a mix of fun loving punk rock, mostly from the UK in the late 70s (my favourite punk period). Fact: one of these songs was the first song my daughter ever moved to, to wit: “Anarchy in the UK” by the Sex Pistols. I am one proud dad!

  1. Well, Mixie my friend:

    Go to your mixwit ‘page’ and choose the mix of your choice. Just below the track listing, there’s a tab labelled ‘share’. Click that tab, and you will see a bevy of icons, one of which is the WP icon. Choose it. When you do, you will be confronted with another set of text fields that will ask you for your WP username, the title of the post featuring the mix you intend to publish, and finally your WP password which nornally gets you into your dashboard. Then, click on the ‘post’ button. And Bob’s yer uncle, Fanny’s yer aunt – this instantly posts your mix live to your blog, without any cutting and pasting at all. Unfortunately, I don’t think you can post a mix to an existing blog article from mixwit.

    Now, for you it might be a bit tricky seeing as you generally write brilliant text segments of a post before you post your mix. What I sometimes do when I take this approach is to post the mix, then add the text, and then save the newest version of my post with the new text. But, if you don’t want to do that, you can cut and paste as you’ve always done, go into your dashboard and edit the post in the HTML mode. This way you can remove any extraneous code yourself. Then, save it.

    I hope this was helpful! What did you think of the mix? I consider you something of an expert…

  2. I think your mix rocks hard – especially your first pick! People forget about those guys all the time…

    I will try to do it your way with the Mixwit stuff. Thanks for the suggest!

  3. Cheers, Mixie.

    I’ve always thought that SLF tune was a great pop song, as well as a great example of punk rock. I also really love that Rezillos tune (‘Do I luke upta deet?’ :)). A lot of punk out of this era was as amateurish and dated as many critics say. But a few of them deserved a bit more exposure out of the punk ghetto.

    And no problem with the suggestion!

What are your thoughts, Good People? Tell it to me straight.
