about

The Very Best Of Mint Biscuit.

An all-instrumental Very Best Of.

36 tracks, over 2 hours playtime, representing the whole spectrum of Mint Biscuit's back catalogue.

In turns, joyous, rocking, angry, sad, melancholic, pretty, funky, confident, dark, bluesy, abstract and gentle.

Some of these tracks have developed over years of practice and refinement (Alien Sandwich, Motoring, Summer Song, City On Lockdown).

Some came easily (Jaguar Juice, Spanish Brown Cow Blues, Annabelle's Driving Song).

Some, I had to force a bit (Reeftastical, Everton Mint, Bugging Me).

Some, I have forgotten how to play (Cornfield Whisper, Phase Out).

Others still, came in a moment of divine inspiration and near-faultless playing (Atlantic Highway Blues, Coated In Mud, Nightshades, Heavy Petting).

I really feel like I have communicated with my Mojo with these tracks. They represent what I am about in terms of making music.

Lay back and let yourself be thoroughly Biscuited!
