This is the second time I have had this CD. The first one was stolen from my work van a couple of weeks ago, funnily enough they left a Hamsters double live CD, so this one must be good. This a compilation of local groups from East Anglia but mainly the Colchester area. It is brought together by a Young Enterprise Group who are trying to promote local unknown bands. Reading the about us section on the record labels web site,


It seems as though they have great ideals and take the Punk ideal of do it your self to heart. They have also won the Young Enterprise competition for 'Best Overall Company,so well done for that. They will also be representing Essex at Regional finals in Cambridge later in June. Anyway the album is a very well thought out and has a host of different styles upon it. There are folk influenced tracks, acoustic, guitar driven, electronic and one really weird track. I wont pick out favourites or mention artist’s as this would be unfair, as they are all new bands or singers starting out their careers. Nearly every track is fantastic. Click on the link below for a play list with excellent liner notes.


I will say that I only listen to CD’s in my van and this one is on most of the time at the moment. You can buy the disc from the website above for £6.99 and £1.25 p&p or alternatively I have seen it in HMV Chelmsford, Colchester & Ipswich for £7. Buy it, you wont be disappointed. It also helps out some people who are trying to be in the music biz for the right reasons and doing it the right way.
