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 Bitch", 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.
