THE CRIMEA

Colin Murray Shows Some Love

Colin MurrayThanks for the heads up on the message board; Colin Murray showed plenty of Crimea love on his Radio 1 show this Tuesday, playing All Conquering from the new album and giving details on its release. Being the first ever Crimea recording I heard, I’ve gotta say it pretty much lives up to the excelence of the original I heard around 4 years ago. And Regina Spektor could well end up all over this new album :D .

If you’re too late to listen again (skip to exactly 1 hr 20), he basically mentioned Davey’s previous band The Crocketts, the Tragedy Rocks album and their MySpace page. He also mentions that the album will be available for free at the end of April, and the band are just playing gigs for money as they’re fed up with the music industry. I know nothing about that, but the band have never really minded about the whole free thing. I guess it’s even more reason to get to a gig.

If that weren’t enough, Colin also said he’ll be playing a new track from the album every Tuesday, so tune in if you want some more. He’s not kidding, he played Requiem Aeternam a couple weeks ago. Read more it doesn’t say more anymore, does it? :( for the tracklistings to both shows. I might upload some of Colin’s Crimea love clips later, depending on just how free everything gets…

    If so, make sure they write up WHY they’re doing it and submit to places such as Digg and Slashdot –

    http://yro.slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/10/02/2056210

    If picked up it’ll be a huge bandwidth hit in the short term (they’ll need to work out a plan for that) but BitTorrent will help lots to get the message out, and as long as the CD is *ALSO* available when they do it, possibly with some extra content such as demo recordings, it’ll sell.

    Can’t stress order of this enough: get CD ready to buy, explain why they’re doing it on a website that can handle traffic / set up torrents and maybe direct downloads, get the word out to geek-friendly sites (might want to mention the precedents) and cross fingers.

    (Also have PP button on site with torrent tracker — some people just aren’t really fussed about physical media.)

    Getting boingboing’d/slashed/dugg – god forbid, this site’d be down in about 5 seconds. Not that I didn’t think the same thing. Anyways, I’m always submiting stuff to boingboing, like they ever post it :P I guess we can but hope :)

    Thinking about it, if they’re giving the thing away free, why not give *everything* away for free – how’s about some unmixed tracks from the songs so we can remix some stuff ourselves? You just don’t know how much I wanna add the oliver twisted chorus on to the end of only the end of the world, and boost the keyboards up at the end of weird…
