Today I received copies of the 'Enemies' compilation album that myself and Darren White (original Anathema frontman) contributed a track to. The concept of the album was to get songs/poems that were written or popular during the 2nd World War, performed by artists from countries on different sides of the frontline in their own mother tongues. Our track was based on poetry from Wilfred Owen which was written during World War 1, themed by a very minimal & sombre rendition of Its A Long Way To Tipperary. It makes a suitable intro to the whole thing.
It's worth getting hold of if you can find it (I dont have any ordering info yet), and the packaging is killer.
