Flying V’s ‘Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mixtape of the 90s’ Bob Manzo’s Mixtape

Flying V is winding down its awesome run of Be Awesome: A Theatrical Mixtape of the 90s, and here is cast member Bob Manzo’s personal Mixtape.

Bob Manzo:


Meat Puppets – Backwater

Butthole Surfers – Pepper

No Doubt – Don’t Speak

Boyz II Men – Motownphilly

Local H – Bound For The Floor

Everclear – So Much for the Afterglow

Sunny Day Real Estate – Seven

The Breeders – Cannonball

Nine Inch Nails – Head like a Hole

Hole –Violet

I choose the song Head Like a Hole because it was the first song that introduced me to dark electronic music. I have considered it a huge influence in the music that I make now. I also have a tendency to beatbox the beginning of song when I am feeling bored.
