"Pardon My Blues" a Live Wolf Parade Compilation

Wolf Parade is recording a new album, but it won't be called Pardon My Blues. Wolf Parade has played a bunch of awesome songs at awesome shows over the past 3 years. Some have been recorded.
All these songs are unreleased, recorded live, and awesome. These tracks have been edited to remove crowd noise from a lossless source, using ideally the best quality versions of all the songs. Below are the tracks in this
live compilation, enjoy them, they are quite good.

01. Fine Young Cannibals [also called FYC and Fine Young Cannibal]*
02. Things I Don't Know [also called String Me Along]#
03. Soldiers [also called Soldier's Grin, What You Know Can Only Mean One Thing, Bed's Exploding and Beds Exploding]%
04. Cathedral Bells@
05. Language City [also called Long And Bitter Road]*
06. Stevie [also called On The Radio and California Dreamer]*
07. A Day In The Life (Originally by Atlas Strategic)#
08. Billy J. [also called BJ and Call It A Ritual]%
09. Gonna Love You Like I Do^
10. Chinese Way [also called You Will Remember Me Most By My Funeral and An Animal In Your Care]*
11. Beds Exploding [also called What You Know Can Only Mean One Thing, Bed's Exploding and Soldiers]@
12. No One Saves The Day [also called Bones and O C'mon]$
13. Crazy Horse [also called Kissing The Beehive, Wish You Wouldn't Cry and That Epic 14 Minute Song]%

* recorded by the MeatOmnibus on August 22, 2007 at the Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC
Notes: This is a compilation of unreleased Wolf Parade songs which have been recorded live. Each track is from a lossless source and was then edited to remove crowd noise and chatter. None of these are official names at all, though a few could be. Soldiers and Beds Exploding are different songs, Beds Exploding is from earlier recordings and was made into Soldiers. They were each called Soldiers on setlists. Enjoy!

Oh yeah, you can download it. Also you can buy Apologies To The Queen Mary and that super awesome 6-Song EP from 2004.

At the Dublin gig a few years ago, the one that is also called Bones was announced as Bones Song. Not that that makes it any more official, I suppose.

"Love you like I do" is amazing. If "This heart's on Fire" has anything to do with the infatuation period of any relationship than this song might be about what happens next.

I really hope it finds a home on the new album.

So I've been trying to fit your songs provided for Pardon My Blues to the track listing posted at Sub Pop for Wolf Parade LP2. Some of the names are found in the lyrics of the songs, so I've been able to fit them up pretty well, but not all. So far:

1. "Soldier's Grin" - (Soldiers)
2. "Call It a Ritual" - (Billy J)
3. "Language City" - (same title)
4. "Bang Your Drum" - ?
5. "California Dreamer" - (Stevie)
6. "The Grey Estates" - ?
7. "Fine Young Cannibals" - (same)
8. "An Animal in Your Care" - (Chinese Way)
9. "Kissing the Beehive" - (Crazy Horse)

Any ideas on the other two songs? I really hope "Things I Don't Know" made it on there.

I sell a boat-program which will help you to outwit auction and to win, initially the boat was created for the Scandinavian auction but now the program can work with similar auctions: gagen ru, vezetmne ru and with ten.
The program-boat stakes for you, i.e. for this purpose it is not necessary to sit constantly at the monitor. The boat can set time when it is necessary to stake, thus you as much as possible will lower expenses for rates, and as much as possible increase the chances of a victory.

The price of the program a boat for the Scandinavian auctions 20$

For the first 10 clients the price 15$

To all clients free updating and support.

Behind purchases I ask in icq: 588889590 Max.
