45 vintage cuts decanted and mixed into a 56-minute Molotov cocktail of Bolshevik beats, Kollywood funk, ostracised ostrock and pan-Asian pop oddities by Doug Shipton (Finders Keepers Records/B-Music).

Renowned record hound, LP compiler, international DJ and co-founder of Finders Keepers Records, Doug Shipton presents his long awaited debut mixtape, Dedicated Swallower Of Fashion – a cacophony of syncopated psychedelic madness that draws from his enviably expansive record collection and challenging DJ sets, dusting off handpicked fuzz-ridden-break-heavy platters from as far and wide as Malaysia, France, India, Germany, USA, Russia, Spain, Columbia, Italy and Indonesia.

Not content with his involvement in the aforementioned labours of love, the South London rare-disc-detective divides his time working alongside fellow B-Music crusaders and label mate Andy Votel not only in unearthing schizoid channel-hopping artifacts from the alternate-annals of pop history, but also uncovering the finest in off-kilter independent music for Manchester’s very own homemade and house-proud, singular-minded non-label Twisted Nerve (along with co-label boss Badly Drawn Boy), as well as manning his bespoke pocket empire Battered Ornaments Records – responsible for cultivating the much sought after debut releases of reactionary fuzzed out mutant psych misfits Wolf People and cosmic Anglo-krautrockers The Laughing Windows.

DJ duties have seen him traverse the globe sharing needle time with the likes of David Holmes, Jarvis Cocker, Cherrystones, Gruff Rhys (Super Furry Animals), Richard Norris (Beyond The Wizard’s Sleeve/The Time And Space Machine) and Graham Massey (808 State), whilst compilation call-ups have seen him pit his wits and his wax against The Gaslamp Killer, Bob Stanley (St. Etienne), and Chris Geddes (Belle & Sebastian) amongst others.
