Alternative Chutzpah?

Postby Jimmy79 » 14th Dec 09, 19:08

Okay so we have like 18 songs from the album sessions now
that were ultimatley whittled down to the final ten that made it onto the album

now I LOVE every songs released from these sessions
just wondering if anyone would have picked a different 10 that made it onto the album

Boring answer - but I think they got it right.

Only think I would add would be Chutzpah jr as first track - that sets it up perfectly.

I've made a disc up with all 18 on... :D it's great.

I think they picked the right 10 although I would have put 'some days' and 'vernix' on to make 12 tracks in total

did the same thing on my ipod
its now an 18 track monster on the album

I think I would have swapped "Tim Smith" for "Vernix"
and "low energy" for "under the waves"

I like the actual tracklist - without Chutzpah Jnr as it changes to tone of the start of the album.

All 18 Fit nicely on one CD too - so here's a follow up: How would you rearrange it as an 18 track album?

I'd put on the album -

Zeen Requiem, All That Zen and possibly Some Days..

And drop -

I don't really think any of the outtakes would fit properly onto the album-proper... but the album proper could do without at least two of the songs that are currently on it.

I would take out You Took The Sunshine From New York and put in Under The Waves. Maybe slot it in after The Only One.
Just heard Under The Waves for the first time last night, think its fookin class!!!

Apart from when I first get an album I don't tend to listen from song 1 to the last song in order, I usually shuffle the order and listen to songs as individual pieces of music rather than an album in a specified order. It probably stems from when I used to do mix tapes and spread an album across a few cassettes with a load of other songs from other bands.

Re the perfect Chutzpah cd, I think taking songs like YTTSFNY out removes the "lift" that song gives to the whole album, whether you listen to it in order or randomised.

I agree, I love that song, I always like it when Ginger finishes a line in a song with a word that starts the next line, he does that a fair bit.

That's about the size of it all..that zen

I've butchered all the songs into a big 18 song album now. If they HAD to release it as a big ass 18 track epic I would sequenced it something like this. Starts out really upbeat, gets a little darker in the middle and then picks up again.

chutzpah jr
john of violence
jackson whites
plastic jebus
you took the sunshine from new york
the only one
under the waves
low energy vortex
tim smith
you are proof that not all women are insane
people who died
mazel tov cocktail
zeen requiem
all that zen
the snake, the lion, the monkey and the spider
some days just fucking suck

Is the thread title a deliberate play on Alternative Ulster? That's some sly wordplay if so, given the WH links to that song. :)
