Penultimate Post of 2008

Well I don’t know about you, but 2008 has been something of an intense year around here for me. 17 records via a newly established download record label that goes by the name of Quixodelic (thanks Tara), and with it a humble global collective of daydreamers, 3 compilations comprising of 7 discs, 540 minutes of more new sounds and songs and bands than is entirely appropriate for your delicate ears, numerous interviews, countless reviews, a handful of videos, a couple of features, a comatose partridge in a psychdelic pear-tree, a secret underground musical society with a record that nobody really knows who recorded, and a near fatal meltdown one grey October day.

So there you have it. Is this The End or a whole new beginning? I guess I’ll leave that in your capable hands.


In the off-chance this is really THE END then what better way to bow out than with a 

Best Of The Daydream Generation 08

For the last couple of weeks, people have been voting for their favourite songs from our three compilations of the year, and you can do it too if you go here:

The Best Of will probably need to be done in time for Christmas, so you’ll need to hurry if you want your vote to count. Numbers will be added up sometime in the days before the 24th without warning. So you have been warned that you won’t be warned!

I think that’s it again.

I’m away to write a couple of books.


*It’s been brought to our attention that there are a few technical glitches on the site when viewing it using Internet Explorer. We’ve (Tim’s) fixed as much of it as he can, but there are still a few issues – most notably an error message that comes up if you’re trying to vote in the Best Of 08 post. Unfortunately sometimes that’s just the way it goes & if you’re really wanting to have your say you’ll need to come back using a different web browser (such as Mozilla or Google Chrome). Hopefully this hasn’t ruined the DG experience for you too much, and thanks to those of you who pointed out that you were having problems accessing the site.
