THE CRIMEA

New Radio MP3s Up

I’ve just added a few new MP3s to the downloads page featuring Crimea related radio pieces that have been aired recently.

Colin MurrayFirst up is the big one – all of the comments Colin Murray made on The Crimea during his four month long promotion of the band, playing each song from the album in the Black Hole segment of his Radio 1 show. Unfortunately there’s two missing – Requiem Aeternam which he played a few weeks before the rest so I had no chance to record it, and Several Thousand Years Of Talking Nonsense which he never actually played. But the rest of them were played and the comments are all available in one single MP3. If you wanna play each track inbetween comments, you can still download the whole album for free on the official website.

Owen Hopkin may have evaded you all with his appearance on Channel 4 news last week, but his interview with Five Live’s Drive show didn’t and is also available on the downloads page.

And finally Adam Walton impresses with his band knowledge, not only of previous gigs but also of a small upcoming release that you may wish to know about (unconfirmed as yet though). Check out his MP3 for that, and as he mentions it during the MP3, you can also get the live Crimea track Forgotten that they performed in the MS1 Club in 2003. Featuring former Crimea guitarist Julz Parker, it was broadcast live on Radio Wales as part of the Big Buzz festival. And just about everyone who’s emailed me in the past few days has asked for the song, so don’t be askin no more eh? ;)

    Oh, *excellent* … hopefully that’ll be a single as in a hard circular thing.

    Interesting live version — the vocals are a bit too close to the mic, but it gives a good idea of the track.

    And as I don’t think I have in a while… thanks for everything you’re doing around here, and apologies for being fairly fecking useless as a contributor.

    intresting to see that they’re *still* releasing singles from the first klutzville ep in reverse order of my prefered favourites. you can almost guarantee the next single after bombay is opposite ends.

    I’d love opposite ends released…… what a song….

  4. Nathan says:

    I heard the next single is going to be stunner.

    Can I second what Denyer said? Thanks for all you do Christopher – I have to admit I don’t bother checking the official sites until you tell me they’ve been updated. You are very much appreciated!

    I third the applause for Christopher….he ploughed a lone furrow during the last 6/9 months when many had given up…

    …Thank you Christopher!

  6. Denyer says:

    Can they still do Opposite Ends, with it being Warner-released? (Assume it was cut free from legal stuff once already when the Crox and lots of other bands went from V2.)

  7. Iain says:

    Ditto all the above. It’s been a long time since there was any content but he’s been there, waiting to strike at the slightest sniff of a story. Despite lack of sleep and apparently endless pages of Crimea related articles he has sifted, sorted, formatted and posted with ruthless efficiency. Which saves us the bother.

    Cheers Chris!
