GOD IS IN THE CD’, an Underground Compilation of UK music in aid of Macmillan
Cancer Support is released on the 13th of November 2006!!
GIITTV (www.godisinthetvzine.co.uk) the music and culture webzine is three years
old: to celebrate this, and our recent ‘facelift’ we decided to put together a
compilation of unsigned and smaller label acts.
"(GIITTV Zine) is more pretentious than a weekend spent truffle picking with
Brett Anderson"- The Fly
"GIITTV is a cultural revolution in a webzine."-MusicTouristBoard
The eighteen tracks of GIITCD reflect a slice of the brilliant blend of spoken
word, indie, art rock, alternative and punk, which exists below the mainstream
in this country. Sick and tired of being force-fed over produced, trendy,
lifeless sounding bands, this is our small but heartfelt antidote to that. Raw,
vital, and varied. It also significantly reflects the thriving unsigned and
small label reviews section that has been at the core of our webzine, over the
last 3 years. Supporting underground and emerging unsigned talent, where others
have failed (we were one of the first zines’ to review the Arctic Monkeys’ demo,
and interview the Long Blondes). We have been staunch supporters of indie fringe
bands like Luxembourg and Nebraska both of whom are releasing albums shortly,
and who we are sure you will be hearing more of in future.
The CD you hold in your warm hands was only made possible by the artists and
bands financial contributions and musical efforts combined, it truly a is team
effort. GITTCD kicks off with the searing, original, street poetry of Leeds'
Penny Broadhurst, then goes to the dance floor with The Swear's superbly ironic
"Disco $$$$$", before diving down into your sub consciousness with the sensitive
and timeless indie of former ‘Angular Records’ act Gifthorse.
GIITCD also features up and coming bands like the Donde Stars, Korova, and the
Sailplanes. The beguiling sound of One Little Indian signing Rose Kemp. Plus
unreleased exclusives from the likes of The International Karate Plus, Villette,
Captain Polaroid, and Rhesus. The record pivots on the building atmospherics of
Nakeru's "Long Walks on the Beach" and the dirty off the wall zoo rock sounds of
The Empty Vessels' "Sex Disco." Before finishing strong with Bronz Rat signings
the Gemma Ray Ritual, Small Town America favourites Akira, and the
uncompromising sound of Salvo.
Any profits made will go to Macmillan Cancer Support. Please see the inlay
sleeve for full details on the charitable element of this compilation.
