Bent: Weekly download of unreleased nuggets and lost gems

We’ve been blessed with a devout and warm following that has genuinely kept us going over the years. There’s been a lot of love round these parts. We love each other, we love you, and hopefully you love us. So, after a lot of thought and consideration, we’ve decided over the next few weeks to give away some of the treasure in our vaults – Bent material that has never been heard by anyone except of course our closest friends and family. Stuff that had our manager, Nick on the phone laughing, but still loving.. It’s time for you to hear even more of what makes Bent bent.

When we released the ‘Best Of’ compilation back in 2009, we actually gave away a few then, but funnily we’re still sitting on more. A LOT more!

We actually have a ton of material. My vault says I have about 300 Bent tracks in it, running up to a day in solid listening time. Some of it is extremely daft, some we would regard as pretty bad. There’s early versions of tracks, instrumentals, sketches, remixes that were never accepted/finished and more… but collectively, it really gives a massive indication of where Nail and I were coming from, and on that basis alone we thought it would be great for people to hear even more from our little universe; we thought it was about time that we let listeners into our laundry basket to have a good rummage to hear the full true Bent!

So over the following mondays (once a week at 10am GMT to be precise) I’ll be uploading these little beauts right here on this blog via soundcloud…I’ve even made a date in my calendar with an alarm activated (as I can be a bit forgetful) so set your reminders with me in as we step through the keyhole…. (insert crappy-cheap-daytime-TV-wobbly-back-in-time-effect)

See you about this time tomorrow, then! :-)
