Did I hear Jim (over the noisy little bastards) say last night that one of the songs Welfare Mothers played was on the CD?

If so, I am delighted. I loved their set.

Nuclear Winter is very enjoyable. I would probably buy a copy if im in Kilau any time soon.

If i'd have known about this i would have offered one of the songs from the forthcoming Genevieve Christmas Single.

Going for Christmas number 1?

Nah...sorry....John was going to do a solo track, but time was too tight, sadly.

Can I suggest invite only... Imagine the bitching if you go public about the choices. 'Yule' be hounded of town and something big shoved up you internet connection.

Incidentally my track can be heard here, if Myspazz has it working

MySpace.com - Two Back Joe - Aberdeen, UK - Experimental / Ambient / Blues - www.myspace.com/twobackjoe

Good effort Alan. Big up the Cynic man!!!!!!!!!:up:

I'm afraid not. After they played "The Orchard" he said that that song was on a previous Kilau CD that never was. Fucking noisy bastards! For once there's a late night gig on that they can attend and they talk all over it. Why I owtta!

I was informed today that the Ashley Park song should be titled simply 'Goodbye', and that the 'Sexy snowlady' bit was added on the sly by certain rapscallions at Kilau!!!!

I put the first 25 copies into Ki:lau today....I should have the remaining 25 ready by Thursday.

If you had a track on it ask at the counter and there'll be a free copy for you waiting.

I like the last words on the whole CD (by a certain barrista)...."Seasons fucking greetings!!!!!"

I also like the mix of stuff too.....agree on it being the best one so far...and the J Stax one is ace!

I second the ace-ness of the Jim Stax song. The Jan Deal one is also particularly ear-catching.

Heck, it's a downright lovely compilation. Honoured to be part of it.

Do I have to bum everyone that says nice things? :)

I mean, Im happy too and all that but will need to check with the missus first:up:

Oh Alan, I had Chevy on the phone asking about his royaltieso_O Jumped up Hollywood types eh

I will say that quality of all the recordings is top notch and shows how easy it is to be DIY these days!

A copy was played at work today, and my cover of Child's Christmas in Wales was described as "just noise" and "screechy" by a girl who had no idea that it was me who recorded it. I was delighted with those comments! :D

Mark McCabe and Les Pelicans got positive feedback, but the general consensus was that it isn't a Christmassy enough compilation. No pleasing some people!

I think it works ;)

Maybe EVERY song will have to have swearing in it too????

'Silent fucking night'

'Piss off ye merry gentlemen'

''O come all ye faithful cunts'

'A bastard in a manger'

etc
