Product Description

BBC Review

As the default method of storing music becomes, ever-increasingly, to load one’s computer hard drive with digital files obtained by fair means or foul, you might think that the record collector – that most obsessive type who combs charity shops and car boot sales for elusive slabs of crackly vinyl – is a dying breed. In actuality, it appears not; if anything, this consumerist sea change has made the whole exercise seem more esoteric and exotic.

Labels such as Finders Keepers are doing a lot to propagate this image: set up in 2005 as an offshoot of the Twisted Nerve label (best known for Badly Drawn Boy), they’ve made it their mission to reissue the rare, bizarre and valuable records they’ve discovered while digging. To this end, they’ve decided to pack the finest moments to date into one hour-long mix – the sort of freakishly danceable globetrotting beat blitz you might hear at a Finders Keepers DJ night – and got a chap called The Gaslamp Killer to do the honours on the decks.

Known to his mum as William, The Gaslamp Killer lives in LA but shares a zeal for dusty waxen sonics with his British counterparts here, to say nothing of hometown pals like Warp Records hot tip Flying Lotus. Even before Finders Keepers got in touch with him, he was a prolific purchaser of their output, and it’s clear he’s got love for the catalogue, using a total of 64 tracks across the mix. The presumed aim, to cram the crème de la crème into a limited space, is successful – our boy knows his way around a breakbeat and an atmospheric drop-out, but for newcomers to Finders Keepers All Killer serves as a tantalising taster that inspires you to snap up the full versions.

Genre-wise, we’re taken with fleet fingers from 60s psychedelia to Turkish and Hungarian-flavoured rock to space-age jazz oddities to pure-hearted folk ballads. Listen out for tracks from Susan Christie, Bruno Spoerri and Ersen, to name only three. That said, as the chances are you won’t know any of the names from Adam, dive in and bug out. --Noel Gardner

I kind of understand the other reviewers gripe about the lack of an inventive mix by Mr Killer,but only 3 stars! No chance, as the title suggests it is "All Killer",a superb collection of tracks.I personally couldn't give a monkeys about the mix,I'd rather it was kept simple...just give me an endless stream of funky exploratory weirdness if you don't mind.

This DJ mix was commissioned by the mighty Finders Keepers Records to celebrate their 20th (re)release. In five years they have amassed a cross-continental back catalogue consisting of re-released long forgotten / deleted gems from Turkish psych to beats heavy faux Japanese concept albums, via Welsh acid folk and Hungarian honeys. But, I'm not sure why they needed to invite The Gaslamp Killer to mix it up - in Andy Votel, co-owner and founder of Finders Keepers Records, they have one of the world's most innovative, creative and respected DJ's whose mixing track record ('Vertigo Mixed', 'Music to Watch Girls Cry', 'Songs in the Key of Death', etc.) speaks for itself. And that's where this album fails - there's very little innovation on show particularly given the rich source of DJ friendly material to be found on those 20 Finders Keeper's releases.

It's not a particularly bad mix - it couldn't be given the source material - but compared to Votel's recent Twisted Nerve 10th Anniversary mix album, it does fall short.

One of my very favourite records. Yes it's just a mixtape but it has so many different and extraordinary flavours that combine as a whole to be something truly special. Had to have a hard copy!

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome! 16 May 2010

Most albums have no power over the listener's attention through every song. People mostly buy just the singular track through Itunes or they know someone with the album. This should be bought and experienced from beginning to end. As a musician, I love this album. As someone that loves great music, I can't get enough.

Remarkable Music.

3.0 out of 5 stars Review 6 April 2010
By Ayako Asada - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
not earthshatteringly good; not putridly bad. Just okay. The mix up uses random music selections from around the globe, straying more predominantly into the cultural belt of islam, india, and pakistani sounding music. But its good; you just have to weed thru alot that doesnt work; after my editing took place, I left 10 songs on the list that made the cut (out of 18 or 20).
