February has arrived and we’ve decided to go with something a little different for episode 21 of the Phonica Mix Series. Andrew Weatherall is a legend of the UK music scene and also one of our regulars here at the shop.

My pick for my mix of the week is the Kenny Dope one referenced (and linked to) in my song of the week post, its below this one of you can navigate your way there. So there is no real need to put up a link to another mix is there?
So to keep my post rate (and goal) up I’m going to talk about one of the first things I’d grab on a Monday morning at work, where I do most of my music listening. The Radio Hauraki show In It …
