If you’ve been following my band, Murnie, for a while (c’mon, we’re getting on for NINE years, you must have stumbled across…no? Oh well) you’ll know we have a longstanding thing (no, madam, titter ye not, etc) about making up songs out of stuff people send us.
That’s right, Stuff. Bits and pieces, odds and sods, random ephemera that come into folks’s heads. No matter how weird they may be. In fact, we especially like the weird ones. That’s how the suggestions of “naked underwater golf” and “fish parts” became the sensitive ballad, Down (on the Glitter Flies ep).
So, we want you to send us your ephemera, your fleeting thoughts, your random stuff, and the ones we like the best we’ll make into a song. We might actually make ALL of them into songs at some point, but for the purposes of this being a competition, we’ll choose one to be the winner.
And what will the “winner” get? I dunno. What do you want? Money? Really? You want money? Cos you can HAVE money…but you know what, I think you’ll like this better: you’ll get a special one-off CD containing ALL of Murnie’s recorded material so far, we’ll throw in a copy of Mutation Press’s amazing Music For Another World anthology of music-related short fiction, some badges probably too and any other bits and bobs we can fit in the jiffy bag.
And all you have to do is go over to our facebook page, friend us if you don’t already, and give us your best random thought for us to immortalise in song.
