Christ Allie – Bad Attitude Mix

September 2, 2011

Christ Allie (aka Chris Tallie) sums up his mix with the words “immediacy” and “attitude.” I would expect nothing less from a fellow upstater now dwelling in Wu Tang’s own, Shaolin. Staten Island represent!

When I met Chris formally in NYC we struck up a conversation about some of our shared experiences in the local music scene of Buffalo (where we both attended college). Eventually our conversation led us to a small, dank, live-music venue on Main Street called Broadway Joe’s. Equipped with foosball, $2 beers, and a layer of floor-filth you could draw in with a flat-head screwdriver, Broadway Joe’s was a phenomenally cheap venue in which you could hear local talents share their music while hitting on co-eds. I mentioned a college friend’s band that played at the venue often and specifically made reference to a “rad keyboard player with a red Nord Electro.”

A kind of modest smile formed on Chris’ face. He replied, “Um. I think you’re talking about me.”

DAMN! Color me embarrassed! It WAS Chris! And it was at this point I envisioned the future, and in this future Chris would make a badass mixtape for my blog.

Without further ado, enjoy the immediacy, drive, and attitude of Chris’ contribution, named for its anchor track from DC-punk-rock’s finest, Bad Brains:

(Oh wait. Before you dive into Chris’ mix, be sure to peep his indie-pop/rock quartet, Ghost Bunny. Check out their shimmery pop tunes on the band’s myspace!)
