A generous 1.5 litres of Muse
A pinch of Bach
A handful of Shostakovich
3/4 tablespoons of Fall Out Boy
A careful dose of Red Hot Chilli Peppers
500ml of Bowie, free of compilation
1/2 a cup Police
Upload everything onto a computer, mix well and season. Add a few sprigs of perfect chord sequence, a slice of sadness and a kick of happiness, carefully avoiding any One Direction and Taylor Swift. Simmer, strain and sync to an iPod. Add headphones/speakers to taste.
Sprinkle with handfuls of hand-picked Black Keys, lightly salted Vampire Weekend, assorted White Stripes and Toploader. Garnish with a bit of Rolling Stones and a dash of Eddie Vedder.
