All over this!

You could make week one the HONY rarities as that has all the tracks from that era.

I don’t think I realised there was an EO before HONY. I had most of the tracks already from their myspace, but not Frontwards (or the outro track)

Gareth was on the boards? That’s very cute. Looking forward to lyrics on the new album pertaining to pizza scissors, penis darkness penis darkness, and… third meme from the old boards.

yeah, id expect a few people here got the early demos from here rather than myspace. its pretty amazing to think they had Sweet Dreams Sweet Cheeks and You Me Dancing so early on tbh. still got the demos on a harddrive somewhere, might see if i can dig them out. or just google to see if i can find them i guess

Los Campesinos! on X: “Original LC! Summer 2006 demo here. Think we made the sleeves up from cereal boxes and posted them out to anyone who requested on MySpace :cd:” / X (twitter.com)

Vague memories of Gareth being on the boards. When LC! were saying We Are Beautiful wasn’t an album (nor an EP, a mixtape, or a compilation), I remember posters were winding him up about it and he didn’t care for that very much!

It was to escape the 3 album deal they were given iirc. Ie. They wanted to do lots but didn’t want to burn through the deal too quickly
