Competition – The Big One

CD Comp
Competition Prize

As hundreds of music fans make their way home from The Crimea’s Secrets Of The Witching Hour tour gigs, welcomes you to the band’s biggest fansite on the web with the biggest Crimea competition to ever grace the internets.

I’ve dug deep into the back of my closet and pulled out an almost complete collection of the band’s entire back catalogue. Read more for the full list, though unfortunately the original, ultra rare red covered Tragedy Rocks is missing, and currently there’s no pirate style Tragey Rocks either (though I hope to change that soon). Other than that, it’s all there. I’ll make sure to include a CD of ripped MP3s from any missing CDs, and also every demo and live recording I have.

I’ll also try to throw in whatever Crimea related gubbins I find lying around and I’m already pestering band members to donate anything they can come up with. If you have any Crimea related stuff you’d like to add to the prize fund (especially any of the missing CDs from above) then get in touch ( ).

Update: Prize fund now includes a fully signed gray Weird t-shirt and a fully signed Secrets Of The Witching Hour CD album.

Alright, here’s the good stuff:


What is the title of the second track from The Crimea’s first official CD release?

Hint: track = song, official = no promos so either a single or album. You’ll know it when you find it ;) .

Send your answer to along with your name and e-mail address before the closing date of midnight GMT, Thursday 5th July 2007 (that’s two days after the last SOTWH tour gig), also note it was previously 27th June though some tour gigs were rescheduled, so you have even longer to win!

One entry per person please. A winner will be picked at random from all correct entries after the closing date and the winner notified by email around 7th July. The winner should provide a postal address for delivery of the prize within three weeks of notification, otherwise a new winner will be chosen.

Current Prize Fund:

Lottery Winner On Acid (2002 CD Single)
White Russian Galaxy (2003 CD Single and 7″)

Fully signed “Pterodactyls take on the Helicopter gunships” t-shirt, gray, medium size, and I think Joe must’ve dropped it somewhere as there’s a tiny bit of mud on the back, it’ll wipe off + fun story, anyway…

    Hey Christopher,
    I’m pretty certain I’ve got most (if not all) of the prize already (apart from the signed Witching Hour cd, which can be rectified Monday), so it would be selfish of me to enter the competition. Just wanted you to know I’ve looked at it – hate you to feel you were being ignored!
