Medical Records in partnership with Crispy Nuggets Blog present the unreleased recordings of England’s Mixed Feelings. Mixed Feelings grew up in Basildon which was also the home of Depeche Mode. In 1981, Sean Cooper met Martin Gore on holiday (around the time of “New Life”), and they instantly hit it off discussing synthesizers, school, teachers, etc. Martin was inspirational for Sean to follow his dream of making music.
You know how you always dream of having a holiday somewhere with beautiful beaches, great sea food and blue-blue water, with nothing around you but wilderness? And normally you think about such places as being somewhere on some remote islands, far away and quite expensive. But it seems that such places do exist also close to us, Europeans and they are actually very easy to reach.
Or better yet… very, very, very hot Cordoba. We visited Cordoba in June, part of our Spain and Portugal summer trip and we spent there about 24 hours. We did manage to survive the summer heat (although in some parts of the town, it seemed as we were the only crazy people actually trying to do some sightseeing) and we discovered an absolutely beautiful Spanish town, so simple and colorful, full of culture and life.
