This year marks the 10th anniversary of the Web Christmas CD, so we've come up with something extra-special to celebrate.
In recent years, most have been compilations of live tracks and the occasional b-side, sound clip, or acoustic version. This year's CD, however, is made up of BRAND NEW music that you've NEVER heard before!
During the writing sessions for "Happiness is the Road" producer Mike Hunter recorded the band's daily jam sessions, editing the best bits and ideas into a more coherent shape, and then re-presenting them to the band for further development.
The majority of them became the songs you hear on the new album; but what we're giving you on this year's Christmas CD is a collection of some of the best UN-USED jams. As Mike was going through the jams for this CD, though, he had an inspired thought and began arranging the more 'seasonal'-sounding ones into a sonic poem, using Dylan Thomas's reading of his "A Child's Christmas in Wales" as a common thematic element.
The band loved the idea of this, so h re-recorded the words and Mike arranged the music for this very special project.
