VA - DJ Morpheus Presents I Can't Live Without My Radio

"Tracked by DJ Morpheus (a.k.a. Samy Birnbach)-former singer of early-'80s post-punks Minimal Compact- Can't Live Without My Radio is from/for the cassette generation. Featuring artists like Virgin Prunes, Love & Rockets, Heaven 17, Shriekback, Head, Timezone feat. John Lydon & Afrika Bambaataa, Thrill Kill Kult, 23 Skidoo, and Einst¸rzende Neubauten, this compilation (not "mix") embodies the dry, oblique architecture of '80s college radio captured to Dolby Noise Reduction tape during a Goth-meets-"glam savage" overnight slot. Here, rigid, rhythmic underpinnings vie with murky collages under scorched gloss, coagulating in industrial punk-funk New Wave/New Beat. Urban and humid, while sinister and sterile, songs such as Age of Chance's appropriation of Prince's "Kiss" are as much about gleefully marring pop's veneer as they are calculated designs for social and stylistic change."

VA - DJ Harvey Presents Moonshadow

I'm hoping a few of you knowledgable readers will be able to help. Both these mixes I've had lying about for a while, ones just got 'Moon Shadow Part One' written on it whereas the other 'More Moonshadow'. Am I right in thinking their were quite a few more mixes in the Moon Shadow series? If anyone has more info, tracklistings, links to the others in the series or can confirm these are by Harvey even, would be appreciated. Both great selections whoever compiled them.
