THE CRIMEA

DaveyThe winners of the CDs full of Crimea radio session tracks are Martin Hough, Craig Nunn and Sam Barker. The CDs have been posted and should arrive with you soon. Sorry to everyone who entered and didn’t win, check out the downloads section for some of the tracks which were on the CDs.
Bethan And Huw’s Radio 1 show website has some details and updates on The Crimea in the news section. Click here or on [More] to see the article. They’ve also added the recording of the rest of the Aberystwyth University Exposure Tour gig. To go along with headliners and ex-Murry The Hump band The Keys, you can now hear support bands and Aber locals The Hot Puppies and Gabrielle 25. They’re all worth a listen and as I was around the Uni at the time, I wrote a review of the gig which you can read here.
Staying with Radio 1, last Tuesday (15th April) Colin Murray played The Crimea’s new single White Russian Galaxy at the end of his show. You can see the tracklisting for the show here or by clicking [More] and if you’re quick you can hear a recording of the show here and skip to 1 hour 50 minutes to hear the start of the track. If it sounds at all familiar, that’ll be because it was exactly the same version as the one year old Klutzville Promo EP version. Now I’m not saying it’s the version they’ll eventually release, cos surely they wouldn’t release a song with band members as different from the current Crimea line up as The Crocketts line up was, would they? Well you might just have to wait till the release date to find out, which according to Colin Murray has moved to June 2nd. As they say, good things come to those who wait.


The Crimea Go From Strength To Strength

The Crimea – the band formed from the ashes of Aberystwyth’s The Crocketts – have announced a new member, Australian-born guitarist Julia Parker.

The act, who have recently signed a prestigious publishing deal with Nuxx, are still seeking a record contract proper, but the deal should ensure the group’s profile will be raised within the industry. Future Radio 1 anchorman Zane Lowe has already declared that “They’ll be one of the biggest bands in the world in a year.”

The Crimea release a new single, White Russian Galaxy, in May.
