Filed under: Mixes
It’s almost exactly 6 months later. In which time, I’ve taken a mountain of painkillers, nearly lost my leg AGAIN, had another two spells in hospital but still managed to notch up 4 festivals and some other (very ill-advised) lunacy.
Right now, I’m mostly med-free and pretty much in the hands of the physiotherapist, who I’d describe as a sadistic little bastard if he wasn’t such a nice guy.
Mostly I read and listen to music – and now the meds have worn off I’ve actually started taking stuff in again as well. Kicking the painkillers – especially the Oxycodone – was no picnic and I felt strange and woozy and disjointed for a few days. And listened to a lot of stuff like the tunes I’ve included in this new Oxycomedown mix. I’ve also found hauntology and opiates are a splendid combination, something they didn’t mention in The Wire.
Anyway, I hope to restore this blog to a living breathing thing now I’m a little more sentient, so consider this new mix a kind of reboot.

which might be some indication of how fucked up Oxycodone makes you
