Guest Mixtape 19: A So Tough! So Cute! Mix by KEEL HER

Mixtape cover by KEEL HER

Have we got a treat in store for you today! None other than the awesome KEEL HER has made us a mixtape featuring an amazing selection of tunes. There are some seriously great female fronted songs on this mix that Rose and drummer Andrew have put together, quite a few of which we're going to play on our next Too Cute To Puke party in London. So get it, stick it on your stereo and dance away!

If you've somehow missed the highly prolific KEEL HER we suggest starting with the new 7" single -  the quite frankly awesome Riot Grrrl - out on Critical Heights. The single will also contain a fanzine featuring female artists.

Work your way back with her previous two 7" singles Prize Catch and With Me Tonight and then basically just spend a day with a six pack of Red Stripe and a packet of crisps and huge amount of songs over at her keelher.bandcamp.com. We highly recommend the marvellous cover of Beat Happening - Red Head Walking. Goes really well with the third Red Stripe.


Hitch-Hike - LiLiPUT
Erase You - ESG
Janitor - Suburban Lawns
Pets - Anorexia
The Shah Song - Y Pants
Never Comes Down - Neo Boys
A Go Go - Dara Puspita
Fuck Yourself - Yeastie Girlz
Make All the Ghoul Girls Cry - Quix*O*tic
Pillowcase Kisser - Skinned Teen
Softness - Dorothy
Who Cares About Teddy Bears - Whorish Boorish
I Could Be In Heaven - The Flatmates
Aerosol Burns - Essential Logic
Not Too Soon - Throwing Muses
Michael Who Walks By Night - Strawberry Switchblade
Freed Pig - The Breeders
Mind Your Own Business - Delta 5
Dream Come True - Dolly Mixture
Wayne Wayne (Go Away) - Astrid Quay Arts & Entertainment

Get it here or here

Speaking of female fronted tunes we've got the next Too Cute To Puke coming up in London on the 26th October. We'll be joined by Lucy Watusi who always requests so many great songs that we thought we might as well get her excellent taste behind the decks!
