It’s been ten years since the release of our debut album Welcome To The Club and we thought it was time to take a breath, look back and reflect for a moment. This selection of songs includes many of the bands favourites but it’s always tricky deciding what to put in and what to leave out. Our six British Hot Disc Numbers Ones are included of course but apart from that it’s very much a personal choice.
When we originally formed the band, our two objectives were to hopefully write a few good songs but more importantly to have a lot of fun playing them in a “live” setting. It therefore seemed only natural to include some “live “tracks in this compilation. A special thanks then to Craig Wainwright for mixing the “live” songs.
What to call the album led to some intense debate! As we were celebrating our 10th birthday we thought we could follow the current trend and just call it “TEN”. However we thought that a little pretentious sounding coming from a little country band from Brighton. Then we considered adding up all our combined ages and calling the album that. Fortunately someone realised that this title probably wouldn’t fit on the sleeve notes! So we decided on the much less controversial The Very Best Of The Diablos.
