The band wrote a wee insert for the CD, which reads:

"This is the documentation of our medium rise and barely noticeable fall, in the form of non-CD and unreleased tracks. Tracks 1-3 you will find the triple a-side we released on 7" in late 2006, tracks 4-9 are unreleased studio outings, 10-13 are rough demos and 14-16 are poor drunken practice room takes. Expect out of time vocals, poorly executed choruses and problematic time-keeping.

Untitled Musical Project were: Andrew Barry Graham - bass and vocals, Kieran Duffy - guitar and vocals, and two reluctant to sing drummers in the form of James Peacock and Gregory Shingler."

You can download the whole album free from HERE or buy in the Tigertrap shop for the price of postage.


Untitled Musical Project: UNTITLED MUSICAL PROJECT - split & final shows
posted 23 Jun 2009

"Even the brightest flame must one day flicker out," said someone, once. Following in this grand and sweeping tradition, Tigertrap's finest faux-Brummie noise-makers Untitled Musical Project have decided to call it quits.

Rather than wallow in an empire of despair, Tigertrap chooses to remember the happier days, like the amazing audience-band banter the night Bernard Manning met his maker. Or the spontaneous 'fight song' they invented on stage last week to soundtrack two young ladies rolling around on the floor, scratching at each others' eyes.

Precious times, indeed.

For those sentimental types, there are two more chances to see them play:

26th June @ The Victoria, BIRMINGHAM (w/ Johnny Foreigner + Hot Club de Paris)
6th July @ The Lexington, LONDON (w/ The Victorian English Gentlemen's Club)

We're also putting together a wee CD of unreleased songs, new & old, which will be given away in one final gesture of love at the London show. Details on that to follow.

The band say:

Dearest non-existent fans,
We have decided to call it a day. Thank you for everybody who came to our gigs and helped us along are dysfunctional way. We have two more gigs left one this Friday in Birmingham at the Victoria and one on the 6th of July in el Capital at the Lexington. We have but a few songs we recorded a month or so a go up for your listening displeasure.

Thank you good night. Ump. xx
