Over the coming weeks, Invada will be asking our friends and collaborators to create some playlists. There are no rules or regulations. The parameters are wide open for the guests to do as they wish.
Our first one is by musician/composer Clint Mansell, who has compiled his playlist over 4 sections.

Here are some words from Clint about his selections:
"Where did you grow up? Where were the first places you went out and danced, got drunk, snogged, got into fights, laughed, missed the last bus home, sat on the swings in a deserted park at 1 in the morning with your best mate?
These were mine..this is the music they played while we were growing up.
Monday nights was the Summerhill in Kingswinford. The music there was New Romantic/futurist, glam, and some post-punk. Our clothes were cheap and my boots were held together with duct tape.
Fridays was JBs in Dudley, probably the best club in the world EVER. I can’t guarantee that Dermot, the DJ, played all these tunes but its a reasonable representation of the music he’d spin. Punk, reggae, new wave, mod, rock..the best education we could have ever hoped for.
Then once in awhile there’d be a disco at the Old Halesownians Rugby Club where it was northern soul, Motown and disco. It wasn’t easy to get in there because we weren’t members and the rugby crowd didn’t like us but whatever..we’d get in somehow and dance all night off because there really was nothing else to do.
And finally, theres the music I’m listening to tonight, in the midst of the most defining experience of our lives..stay safe and much love to you all."
