why certain songs didn't make the album

August 17th, 2004

Hi Katy, I suspect you may have received a few questions on this subject. We all fully appreciate that the band has had to be ruthless in  selecting the tracks for inclusion on the new album.

However there have been some new songs already performed live (Virus  and Beautiful Colours to name just two), which also deserve to be  released.

Can you please confirm to us whether the band have any plans to release these and any other new tracks as ‘B sides’ on future single  releases? Many thanks Katy. Rob W. Essex. UK.

YES ROB, YOU ARE RIGHT – I GOT MANY, MANY, MANY EMAILS ABOUT THIS TOPIC. I WON’T BE ABLE TO ANSWER EACH INDIVIDUAL EMAIL SINCE WE RECEIVED SO MANY, SO THE BAND WILL ANSWER YOUR QUERY HERE FOR EVERYONE:

“Simple as it sounds, we have over thirty pieces of music and these were the ones we chose. ‘Virus’ is finished and may well be used for something, but ‘Beautiful Colours’ is not yet completed…. We may come back to it at some time in the future. As for all the others everyone wrote in about, as much as we would have liked, we couldn’t include everything on the CD. The songs that are on the CD were the tracks we thought were the strongest.”
