Mix 89: Antipodean

The cover is a still from the best movie ever, L.A. Confidential, with my head pasted onto Guy Pearce's body. Not even Russell Crowe as "Bud" White can hold me back!
The title "Antipodean" celebrates not only the nationality of Russell Crowe and Guy Pearce, but the purpose of the CD- my wife was travelling to Australia for a wedding!
  1. Batman theme - I like the Style Council and Spandau Ballet, so I bought a CD from The Jam, but I could never get into them.
