CNQ's "THE WEIRD BUMMER COMPILATION" now on Mixcloud!

In the Beforetimes, we called a compilation like this a mixtape, which ya know is a collection of songs you made on a dual cassette deck and gave to a friend or a girl you liked. Nowadays a mixtape is a collection of songs with unlicensed samples, so in keeping with the times I've called this a compilation as if it's something official put out by a label. But between you and me, it's what us kids in the 80s and 90s called a mixtape. 22 tracks, an hour and thirty minutes, of previously unreleased and released tracks from the world's finest temporary shut-ins!

Thanks to all of the artists who contributed. I should be able to do a second one of these...shoot me an email at matt at clean nice quiet dot com if you want a song on the next Weird Bummer comp.
