While indeed we look back on The Optimist LP during March, today IS the day. Today, 10 years ago, The Optimist Lp was released. So today no stories or videos or contributions… Today I urge you all to get out The Optimist Lp and honour it with a special anniversary playback.
When you’ve done that, head over to www.turinbrakes.com: on the player there are 12 demo versions of songs from The Optimist Lp for you to enjoy. All songs – apart from State of Things are featured (instead, there’s a demo of the hidden track to complete the 12 tracks – Olly said on Twitter the demo of State of Things is lost). These demos are fascinating works in progress.
I hope you enjoy the music today. Tomorrow there’s another story for you to read.
