This is a compilation for you to enjoy. Much like a mixtape of old I have gathered together some songs I would like to share with you.
From the bands in which I played (Laeto, American Men, Geisha, Iron Crease) I have chosen my favourite all time tracks of all time. Where I invited artists to donate a track and they asked me to choose (RM Hubbert, Fugazi, The Shipping News, Fat Goth, Dead or American) after many enjoyable listening sessions I managed, with no small amount of difficulty, to select my favourite song from their back catalogues. The rest of the contributions (Zu, Hey Enemy, Titus Gein, United Fruit, Lapsus Linguae, Macrocosmica, Vasquez) are rare or previously unreleased tracks volunteered by the bands themselves, looking to give you, the audience, a unique aural experience.
All the proceeds from the compilation go straight to Marie Curie Cancer Care.
