ATD19 is a mixtape for Steven Wells, the Greatest To Ever Do It, who died earlier this year. It is mostly comprised of music he liked – apart from the first song, which he might not have liked at all, although he probably would have secretly, as it is about him. The first version of the mixtape was created at the request of Steven’s friend and collaborator David Quantick, and played at a party celebrating Swells’ life held in London a few weeks ago. This version features some extra music, including the aforementioned song about Swells, most of which I wrote today, although I’ve had parts of it swimming around my brain for a while now. James Harrison played guitar on that song, and Joey2tits played bass.
I hope you enjoy it. It was fun to make. I especially enjoyed getting to listen to Steven’s poetry and romance fiction. That, and singing “TITS OUT TEENAGE TERROR TOTTY!” over and over at the top of my lungs for about half an hour.
