well this is super ...so far we have 8 entries & it only started yesterday!!

the competition will run for 2 weeks so theres plenty of time for all you slow coaches to come up with a world beater

the last date for entries then is the 4th of april.....i will get all the entries together in one of these polling stations weve had before on the 1st of april & announce the winner on the 5th & present them with the lovely shiny trophy

if ive made  a mistake with these dates please let me know :)

i think we are now up to 10 entries which is fantastic...but who else is game...all you have to do is write& record a song then turn up  the playback speed control on your DAW to get the song down to under 1.30 mins ...its that easy!!

what about all you new members joining in & getting involved here?
there will be prizes for 1st 2nd & 3rd places :)

I have a beautiful 1 1/2 minute piece called 'Fuck You' and it's the punkiest song I have. Sadly, I still don't have recording equipment :'(

Hopefully it's not too much like this 2 minute punk song called 'Fuck You' :)

I find most punk songs with the title 'Fuck You' under 3 minutes are generally the same ;)

Been busy and came in a bit late and with the speed the sites moving at recently... I've missed lot's of the earlier entries.

I wasn't going to listen to any of the entries until they were all in and do them all in one hit, but seeing as lots of you guys reviewed mine I thought I better start now. So, any chance of an "Entered So Far" List in this thread so I can catch up?
