Celebrity Playlist: Fixers

Fixers are from Oxford and know about Arthur Russell and experimental beats, thus they're part of the burgeoning Blessing Force collective. Taking cues from Brian Wilson harmonic acid surf and freak-psychedelic ethereality while still approachable enough to have done a Jo Whiley session, from tomorrow they're involved in the BF#1 two day takeover of a warehouse space (Old Book Binders, Oxford) into an installation-cum-happening and gig area also featuring the likes of Jonquil, Pet Moon, Rhosyn, Chad Valley, Ute and Sisterland, and on the 21st issue a 7" that sounds like this. Their Playlist is as spacily eclectic as expected, including one band Google seems to know less about than

The Beach Boys - Cuddle Up
Arvo Part - Spiegel Im Spiegel
Blossoming Aquatic Meadows - zZzleepy Dress
Bruce Haack - African Lullaby
Drexciya - Aqua Worm Hole
Justin Timberlake - FutureSex/LoveSound
Arthur Russell - Let's Go Swimming
Kate Bush - Rubberband Girl
Wham! - Battlestations
