knee jerk 001 - zip up your boots for the show bands
This compilation was put together with Dead Elvis when a big music business seminar came to town. It features all the bands that blunt and Dead Elvis worked with and a few other like minded bands also. The only thing I remember about it was a few gigs on a boat moored outside The Funnel where I met the A&R man who signed Pet Lamb and Wormhole to Roadrunner Records. He had moved on to greener pastures by then. The cover was done by Niall McCormack.
I like to believe U2 got the name for their song "Zip Up Your Boots" when Eno played them a copy of this one day in Marrakesh in an attempt to inspire them.
