hours and hours: a tribute to seaweed (CD, £6.50)label: Engineer Records
SEAWEED had the blood, sweat and intensity which musically charged us in our formative years, as well as both the attitude and spirit which we look for in music today. With this album, we present to you a tribute to a band that holds an integral influence over the Engineer label. Seventeen bands from various countries show that SEAWEED's influence was not one-sided. From post-punk to metal, hardcore to indie-rock and even singer-songwriter, such a diverse roster was purposely chosen. Many of these bands are influental themselves in today's vibrant music scene, busy on various taste-making record labels, yet still humble enough to help us realize this project. With a blessing by the members of Seaweed themselves to launch this project, alongside a handful of reunion shows in 2007, SEAWEED is proving its heart is still on its sleeve in reaching fans new and old. All tracks are previously unreleased and unique to this release. Features two notably unique artist collaborations featuring WE'RE ALL BROKEN, THURSDAY and THE GASLIGHT ANTHEM as well as between THE RECEIVING END OF SIRENS and MONEEN members, plus debut "solo" offerings from Ryan Mills and Rob Avery. Bonus Feature: contains actual SEAWEED "live" footage circa 1992, shot and submitted by fans, edited as a Quicktime Video. Artwork production by the cutting edge "Sons of Nero" design team.
