I tend to work 12 days on, two days off. Here is an example of the kind of music I would like to hear early on in the morning to get me going and get me through. There is a pretty obvious thematic link to the tunes, which deal with things on a day to day basis. Having put the mix together, though, it is one that would actually work for me.

What else? Oh yeah, the picture is of a statue at the top of my street that I pass everyday. It has been a pastime of mine since I arrived here in Porterville, CA to speculate on what the farmer portrayed might be thinking. I have narrowed it down to two possibilities. One is that he is praying for an end to his constipation. The other is that he is feeling rather perplexed because someone appears to have stolen his newspaper.

Track Description:
The only way to start the two week work cycle is with a massive shot of the blues. The slow yet sizzling build up is perfect to kick-start the least favorite day of the week.

Track 4 from No. 4
Length: 00:03:00
Year: 1999
Track Description:
Well, as song number 1 states, "Tuesday is just as bad..." and already the will to get up and go got up and went. Some gently driving music from STP will maybe do the trick. Not too much chance of Church on a Tuesday for me, although stuck in rush hour Californian crazy traffic on my bicycle, I may just say my prayers once or twice!

One of my favourite madchester bands in a restrained lament that seems fitting for that "it's only the middle of the week, why do I get up every bloody morning" vibe.

Track Description:
The week drags on, and as we get to Thursday I am dragging a bit. Getting up takes longer, getting dressed takes forever, and I find it easy to lose myself in The Orbs ambient playground.

Track 8 from The Last Broadcast
Length: 00:03:37
Year: 2002
Track Description:
Now for some, Friday is the one, the morning that leads to the afternoon which in turn leads to the evening and freedom from work for a whole weekend. My schedule is not quite like that, although I do pine for the days when it was. The melancholy of Doves suits my mood as I slide into the bathroom, yet the beauty of this recording helps to keep me going through the difficult first ten minutes of the day.

Track 2 from Lark's Tongues in Aspic
Length: 00:02:56
Year: 1973
Track Description:
Saturday comes, and this week it is just another working day. It is even harder to get up and for some reason, this is the day I always think about England and home. As I get my coffee and check the footie scores on BBC online a song like this one takes me back to teenage Saturdays in Finchley somehow. A soothing voice like that of the late John Whetton helps a lot.

Track 8 from Scarlet And Other Stories
Length: 00:03:15
Year: 1989
Track Description:
I do need the music to pick me up more now. This slice of poppy gothy rock from the late 80's is perfect. The guitar solo on this, simple and formulaic as it may be, always makes me smile, and smiles are hard to come by at an unearthly hour of the morning.

Year: 1973
Track Description:
One last push, the final working day before days of rest. Pin Ups is a lot of people's least l9iked Bowie album, but it does feature the Spiders From Mars at their campest, and some of the covers are pretty good, such as this pacey reading.

I'd imagine that in Porterville the statue would have something to do with the Grapes of Wrath and Steinbeck?? The agricultural foundation upon which California was settled? Maybe?
