Finally! Up on iTunes! :cheerleader:

For those who don't know, this is the second CD by my power-pop band, The Mold Monkies. It's finally coming out after many years of recording, drinking, mixing, drinking, etc ... We're quite proud of the way it came out.

Three things about this album ...

1. Anybody who buys a digital copy of this album, let me know your address and I'll send you a physical copy of the album. The physical copy has a board game you can play, so it's worth it ...

2. Anyone who can't afford to buy this album, but still wants it, PM me and I'll probably just send you a copy because I'm such a friggin' nice guy ...
:rockin:

3. Anyone who doesn't want this album shouldn't buy it. Then you won't have it and everyone will be happy!
Except for me because you didn't want it. But we can't all be happy or else happiness wouldn't mean anything.
:crazy:

Come listen to me on iTunes

*edit - this will at some point soon be up on iTunes, CD Baby, etc., but I have to wait for it to propagate to all the other music sites. It takes some time for them to convert the music to the various formats that all the different sites use ... :(

Also, we had to jump through some hoops because there's a cover of Billy Bragg's "A New England" on the CD, which we had to license and then clear through everyone and their dog, as though paying to use the song weren't enough ... It took a month just to get it up on iTunes. :gripe:

Thanks, pix! :waving:

It's a full album, and it will be up on Amazon ... "he-ven-tua-LLY," as Manuel would say on Fawlty Towers. Not sure when, though. :?

“Your request could not be completed.
The item you've requested is not available.” :(

Is all sadness. And failure. And woe. All woe. And it's a sham. And a mockery.
It's a mockery of a travesty of a sham of pure, woeful failure. And that's sad. In fact, is all sadness. :|

...and Terry Tate, Office Linebacker and [FnG] BanHammer, keeps an eye on threads where FnGers are promised things what can't be had.

Watch your back. Just sayin',

:( Yeah, just noticed that (having previously not attempted to buy my own CD). My guess (as in my fervent hope) is that it will be up (a treat) good and proper in a day or so.

Well it's on Amazon for download, not sure if this link works outside of the UK but here it is for those too lazy to search (or who dont like itunes)
Here
At 15 tracks for about a fiver, there is some good value for money there.

Good work Monkies,
Although not as instantly approachable as the first after a few listens it firms up into a much more well rounded and contemplated sounding album. I am enjoying it greatly and think it has great reply value as it comes across as more planned and generaly tighter than the first offering. Not that the first is by any means bad, it just lacks the confidence and steadiness Stoats' gives off. The 3 year wait has clearly been used well.
To those umming and ahhing and listening to previews, just get it, short samples don't do the album justice. 30 seconds here and there don't allow sufficiant time. Get it Out of Me so far is my star track I would recomend you get if you are doing the weird itunes track-at-a-time thing. Great stuff.
Thumbs up from me 7uh!

Thanks very much for the review, Pyx! :waving:

Any and all feedback is much appreciated -- it's hard to evaluate it when it's your own music and when you've been mucking about with it for five years ... :rolleyes:

If anyone gets the CD and has a chance -- if you could rate the album and/or write a short review, especially on iTunes, that would be really great.

It's here! Awesome :)
The board game looks pretty funny and awesome :)
Second awesome in two sentences..., it must be pretty awesome :D
I'm gonna bet (and win :P) there was some final mixing and/or mastering done on Feel All Right since you posted it to download here, it's still very much... well...
AWESOME!!

Thanks 7Uh :D (you're awesome)
