Everybody Talk about - Pub Musik
The annual booze based tear-up billed as the Sad Lads CD Swap, will be upon us soon(ish). A two-part pub do where CDs of newbie bits compiled by Piley, Marmite, Coops, E F Rice, Jack Gestures, Paul Glasses, myself and others are swapped in November and reprised by an end of year re-meet for evening's nattering about our year's best beats and bobs. The rules are straight forward: see E F's regulations footnoting this post.
My '09 selection box was weighted with 80% vintage bits. This year it's possibly 70/30 in favour of new tunes. Dipping through a year's listening, highlights how many oddities and offcuts remain unblogged and lingering on the sub's bench. Blitzen Trapper are a premium example. On heavy rotation at home or out and about - but not a peep to be seen in my (award winning) cyberspace scrapbook..
Blitzen Trapper - Fire & Fast Bullets
Blitzen Trapper - Saturday Nite
Just one Blitzen bit will be making the final cut - I'm not sure which yet, but once my compo's finalised I may clonk a Ltd Edt mix in the blog
Them's The Rules....
1. Circulate to everyone a CD no longer than 80 minutes in length, containing tracks for new groups you have either got into for the first time this year or established artists you have perhaps picked up an old track/album for this year.
2. You may have more than one track for an artist on the CD (although 80 mins of Springsteen would be pushing it)
3. You supply all those taking part with a CD including a full track listing. The CDs will be circulated on a date in early November down The **** (date will be decided nearer the time).
