Hi folks,

Due to the tour and everything else going on this year, we thought it would be best to move this year's Covers Comp end date on a bit from the mid-year date we originally intended. It's now set for 12pm GMT October 10th 2009 (Midge's birthday seemed like an appropriate date!) and we'll start uploading all the already-submitted entries shortly.

Ladies and gents, start your engines please! laugh

Cheers,
Cerise, Rob & Paul.

Nice, my birthday starts a minute later on October 11th smile Would love to take part in this, it'll probably take me until October 9th to wittle down my shortlist of songs Id love to cover to 1 tho wink But I'll give it a shot! Actually, an idea has just popped into my head!

Hello!

I'll be entering. Being of a Foxx persuasion, I'll be submitting an original song in an early Ultravox! style, and a cover too - most likely 'Just For A Moment'. I'll get the MP3s to you ASAP. My friend will be doing the same too (1 original / 1 cover) - again with a strong Foxx slant.

All the best for now,
Adam.

I'm not entirely certain which category to put my entries under.

I haven't been especially careful to copy the sounds and exact arrangements, instead just going with my own translations.

But, on the other hand, I haven't deliberately tried to make them well different or put them in another genre either.............

I dunno if that makes for "Cover' or "Re-Cover". I'm guessing the latter........

Having said that, some are more different from the originals than others.

Hmmmmmmmm...................

I was working on a delightfully cheesy jazz version of "Visions In Blue" - I thought I might call it "Visions In Blue-Note" (groan! smile ) But I'm flying to Edinburgh tomorrow so it'll have to wait till the next time! (I may have entered enough songs already anyway! :rolleyes: )

Look forward to hearing the entries! I have listened to previous contests' entries and they sound really good!

(PS - Looking forward to seeing Midge in Hartlepool!) mexican

Good luck Flips - as I've said to you recently - really like your work.
Hope to enter myself next year - didnt realise this was coming up (or knew that much about it to be honest) - quite fancy doing a version of 'I Remember' - oh well maybe next time!

Good luck all - look forward to hearing the submissions!

I don't think I specified categories when I sent in my MP3s.

'Just For A Moment' -> 'Best Re-Cover' category.
'The Implausible Man' -> 'Best Original' category.

Cheers Cerise.

Right, done mine and sent it by email to Cerise just now. Its called Ocean Road (Billy's "Kitchen Sink" mix) which might give you a small clue what it sounds like... bemused

Its also on my Myspace for listening and Garageband (for downloading) (saves the site's bandwidth a bit I hope!):-

DON'T BAR THE DOORS YET, CERISE! I know we're coming dangerously close the deadline, but my mix is done, and it only needs to be mastered by the incomparable Steve Turnidge. Once I have the mastered version, then the MP3 is off to you. Any minute now! I've worked so hard on it, so if I come in just a few minutes after Midnight, you won't fault me, will ya?! smile

Hi keeptorqueing,

The deadline was actually midday today - but a few have turned up a little late (possibly because our deadlines have previously been midnight), so that's fine. We'll extend it to 10am tomorrow (Sunday) for any last stragglers. wink

All entries will be uploaded over the next week - looks like it's going to be a great year again! laugh

That's it - entries are closed for 2009. smile

I'm sorting through entries right now, will start uploading. Might take a day or two to get them all done, will post notice here when all are available to hear.

Judging will take place whilst I'm on hols at the end of this month and the winners will be announced in the second week of November.

Well done, everyone! laugh
