I may have done more posts on EELS than any other single band. (Most recent post: here.) So, I am wicked excited to announce this giveaway.
The eels are coming out with two retrospective albums. The first, titled Meet The EELS: Essential EELS Vol. 1, is a CD/DVD that, as you might guess, is a best of: 24 tracks and 12 videos. The second, titled Useless Trinkets: B-Sides, Soundtracks, Rarities and Unreleased 1996-2006 is two CDs and a DVD of, as you might have guessed, rare tracks. And you can get ’em both, just for being a reader of this blog.
For full track lists and more info, go here (although why you’d need any more info is beyond me!)
Now, this ain’t gonna be cheap. You’re gonna have to earn it. Send me e-mail or a comment with your e-mail address and the name of your favorite EELS song. Winner will be picked (at random) in about a week and must must MUST check their e-mail every day to get my message that they’ve won. Or else, I’ll pick someone else.
Now, listen to these cool EELS tunes (not from either album) and get to commentin’ or e-mailin’!
