Believe it or not.

We have a number of submissions in place -- let me know if you still want in! And we need cover art!

Ned Raggett, Monday, 28 November 2011 16:27 (nine years ago) link

Blimey, that was quick!

Crüt promises me that he has been working on our track. I don't know if I believe him.

Illia Rump (emil.y), Monday, 28 November 2011 16:33 (nine years ago) link

remind me the deadline?

andrew m., Monday, 28 November 2011 17:40 (nine years ago) link

It was going to be December 1 but given the temporary shutdown that seems ridiculous. Let's aim for December 10.

Ned Raggett, Monday, 28 November 2011 18:21 (nine years ago) link

still want to contribute. mine might be short. and terrible.

tylerw_sandbox, Monday, 28 November 2011 18:22 (nine years ago) link

Surely the temporary shutdown means that people had more time to be hard at work recording. Yes, I am impatient.

That's the spirit. I'm sure I can manage something short and terrible too.

OK, I've realised I already have something that could be suitable, what do I now?

Tony Hart land (Deep in the Tony Hart land), Thursday, 1 December 2011 11:04 (nine years ago) link

From the original thread:

And yes before anyone complains we can change the title, we just needed something for now.

Deadline November 30th, no limitations, originals, covers, whatever. MP3, AIFF, WAV, whatever format is best (I use Apple, FWIW), file size not an issue. E-mail files or links to me at ned at kuci dot org when you're done. We'll need cover art as always. Post if you're in.

Bela Lugosi's Derrida (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Tuesday, 6 December 2011 13:26 (nine years ago) link

Gotta say, Paul, that's one bemusing post in context.

Ned Raggett, Tuesday, 6 December 2011 14:55 (nine years ago) link

2 days.

Bela Lugosi's Derrida (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Thursday, 8 December 2011 10:14 (nine years ago) link

So stoked for this.

Getchyer final contributions in -- and if nobody's doing artwork, you're leaving it in my hands. Be warned.

Ned Raggett, Thursday, 8 December 2011 13:51 (nine years ago) link

mine & emil.y's will be coming soon.

Adrien Brony (step hen faps), Saturday, 10 December 2011 02:14 (nine years ago) link

I'll need to review everything tomorrow to make sure I have whatever band names people want in place.

Ned Raggett, Saturday, 10 December 2011 05:49 (nine years ago) link

Okay, all tracks received and I'll have this up and ready here in a couple of days (busy times w/holidays and work).

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 11 December 2011 23:40 (nine years ago) link

Neither ignored nor forgotten, but last night was derailed and tonight I might be busy helping out a friend's family (she's going through some elaborate surgery today). So probably Wednesday...

I might actually be able to do this tonight. Maybe possibly perhaps.

And behold!

More of a compilation EP but hey.

Ned Raggett, Friday, 16 December 2011 05:26 (nine years ago) link

that is not the elf with wound track I submitted I don't think!

wow gould (step hen faps), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:33 (nine years ago) link

no "Xmas loulou" (link above)?

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:34 (nine years ago) link

for one thing it's supposed to be 9 minutes and 42 seconds

wow gould (step hen faps), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:36 (nine years ago) link

I think it's a mix.

(my orig track isn't 21 secs but hey)

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:38 (nine years ago) link

Is there a downloadable zip?

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:44 (nine years ago) link

well, none of the track sounds anything like what was submitted.

wow gould (step hen faps), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:49 (nine years ago) link

how strange

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:53 (nine years ago) link

I think there's been a mistake.

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Friday, 16 December 2011 06:54 (nine years ago) link

Illia Rump (emil.y), Friday, 16 December 2011 12:47 (nine years ago) link

Wow that IS weird. Maybe this can be the promo clip version. :-D Okay folks, send me replacements/proper tracks and I'll correct them tonight. Probably shouldn't've tried to do this at the end of the year when I was crazy busy!

Ned Raggett, Friday, 16 December 2011 13:37 (nine years ago) link

Mine is correct!

OH NOES, Friday, 16 December 2011 13:52 (nine years ago) link

Right, so my original e-mail, I shall retrieve it and resend.

The other track as above, I'm not sure I have dominion over its release as I am merely the 'guest vocalist', but I shall send it regardless.

SHORT-LY!

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Friday, 16 December 2011 14:05 (nine years ago) link

xp Mine is correct also. It's 'snoball' with a lower case 's' though.

yes this is the real (snoball), Friday, 16 December 2011 14:28 (nine years ago) link

hope it's not too late to add another one (sent)
xp, you sure do have dominion (pray mariah carey discovers nothing)

philip nunez, Friday, 16 December 2011 23:53 (nine years ago) link

Okay an update here on things -- so I have the proper Elf With Wound set up as well as the Mark/Phil Mariah thing but I'm still missing Mark's full "Xmas Gifts"...

Ned Raggett, Sunday, 18 December 2011 19:52 (nine years ago) link

Hopefully now received happy.

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Monday, 19 December 2011 00:24 (nine years ago) link

Indeed and now reuploaded so once again:

http://soundcloud.com/nedraggett/sets/ilxmascomp

Should now be ten songs total and hopefully everything's finally settled! I'll be creating a YSI link for direct download as well shortly.

Thanks Ned! Listening now. DJP's and Tom D's are both really pretty.

Illia Rump (emil.y), Monday, 19 December 2011 01:52 (nine years ago) link

It's all pretty and sparkly so far. I'm liking it. Though I have realised that both KRAMPUS and GÄVLEBOCKEN are missing as subjects of any songs. We'll have to do another one next year to rectify this. At least me and crüt shoehorned a bit of my obsession with Nuclear Winterval into the comp.

Illia Rump (emil.y), Monday, 19 December 2011 02:00 (nine years ago) link

currently playing some of this on outloud

awesome to have a clever englishman zinging yr enemies (nakhchivan), Monday, 19 December 2011 03:13 (nine years ago) link

It has been hampered by the ILX outage, true.

We should do a 'revised reissue' next year (might actually find my 'session tapes' and remix It for next year.

The loulou track should be 'philip nunez and friend' really, soz all.

Y.O. Mini (MarkG oo la showaddywaddy), Monday, 19 December 2011 06:53 (nine years ago) link

If Bernard Snowy's story is true, can he post a link? If it's not true, he'd better go and make it so.

Illia Rump (emil.y), Monday, 19 December 2011 14:30 (nine years ago) link

bump.

― Illia Rump (emil.y), Monday, December 19, 2011 2:30 PM (6 days ago)

it's true I swear! even the part about the listener writing in!! but sadly it was a spur-of-the-moment thing and I don't have a recording (I think this was just before the radio station started digitally archiving all broadcasts?)

I can tell you that the next actual song to emerge from the glorious echoing wreckage was Elvis's version of "Silver Bells", because it was the most pleasantly cheesy christmas song I could think of and I am addicted to dramatic contrasts

bernard snowy, Sunday, 25 December 2011 19:45 (nine years ago) link

We'll have to 're-issue' this next year with more tracks and remixes and so forth....
