Blog: A Tribute Album Of My Very Own

< previous next >
It's been an ENORMOUS weekend during which I have done LOADS, but before I talk about any of them I really have to mention THIS:

This, ladies and gentlemen, is "It Only Works Because You're Hibbett", a tribute album TO ME!! With LOADS of my favourite people doing MY songs - LOOK! Here's who's on it!
Born With The Century - Vom Vorton
Hey Hey 16K - Fakebit Polytechnic
The Peterborough All Saints Wide Game Team (group B) - & The Validators
Bands From London (are shit) - The Fighting Cocks
(Insert Title Here) - Keith Top Of The Pops & His Minor UK Indie Celebrity All-Star Backing Band
The Back Of The Sofa - The Hector Collectors
Easily Impressed - August Actually
Billy Jones Is Dead - Frankie Machine
Red And White Sockets - Joan Hett Overdrive
Hibbett's Golden Rules Of Beer - Daniel & Norbert Dentressangle
The Fight For History - Skint & Demoralised
The Lesson Of The Smiths - The Mini Skips
We Only Ever Meet In Church - Chris T-T with The Metropolitans
It Only Works Because You're Here - Gavin Osborn
Not Yet - Owen Tromans
A Very Special Relationship - Geoffrey and The Livingstones
We Did It Anyway - The Plimptons

I had absolutely NO IDEA that such a thing existed - it was all put together IN SECRET by the marvellous Mr Ray Kirkham who handed me 20 copies of it in the back garden of his parents' house at Hibbettfest over the weekend, and I was COMPLETELY STUNNED. So STUNNED, in fact, that for possibly the first time in my life I asked people to STOP LOOKING AT ME as I struggled to take it all in - it's basically nearly ALL my Pals In ROCK spending the past year or two NOT TELLING me that they were all DOING this!

Since getting home I have listened to it three times and it gets MORE AMAZING each time I do so. When I saw the tracklisting I assumed that everyone had quickly knocked something up but GOODNESS ME NO, there are some ENORMOUS versions of songs on there that have clearly taken AGES to do. I was astonished and VERY PLEASED INDEED.

Ray is going to make copies of the album available for sale, and will be doing an Electronical Download too, so you'll be able to hear them soon, but in the meantime here's a whole VIDEO from Geoffrey and The Livingstones to keep you going:
