knee jerk 001 - zip up your boots for the show bands
This compilation was put together when a big music business seminar came to town. It features all the bands that blunt worked with and many more.
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.
