PWEI Nation Discography 2.0 - Your Nation Needs You!

Postby poppiestar » Tue Dec 11, 2012 8:14 pm

Beaming out a message across the Nation!

As you're probably aware, the discography currently on our Nation's home is not in its most ideal shape: it's incomplete, a bit of a pain to navigate and doesn't really have as much detailed information about our Poppies' treasured catalogue as it deserves. It's time to correct this. So without further ado, I'm very excited to announce:

The PWEI Nation Discography 2.0 Project!

We want to create the definitive list of every single release, track, remix, bootleg, compilation and... well, everything! However, we need your help! Our ideas are ambitious, the scope is massive, but it's nothing we can't accomplish together as a Nation. Plans are afoot. Ideas are flying. Most importantly, though... work has begun.

So where do we begin? Well, for starters, it's time we had a truly 100% accurate, canonical list of everything ever released. I'm not just talking about albums, singles, EPs or compilations - I mean every single track that's ever been released. Not only that, but let's actually nail down a definitive title for every one of these tracks. As the recent work on the Nation compilations has unearthed, it turns out there are a number of tracks that are known by a variety of different names that are, in fact, the same thing, and - in at least one case - two tracks that have the same name! Let's decide, once and for all, the true name of these tracks (but let's also note down the alternate titles so we'll know what they are when we come across them again).

The plan is to build up the discography from scratch, bit-by-bit, until we have the most insanely detailed and disturbingly accurate database of Pop Will Eat Itself information the world could possibly comprehend.

To begin with, though, let's first focus on the main releases. Below I've listed all of the albums, singles, EPs, compilations and videos released under the name Pop Will Eat Itself that I am aware of, however I'd like to get the Nation's input on its accuracy. How correct is this list? Is there anything you'd list differently? Is there anything missing? Is something under the wrong category? For example, are The Poppies Say GRRrrr!, Poppiecock and F1-11 Love Missile better classified as EPs than singles? Should Weirds and On Patrol be listed as Live Albums? This is your project too, we want to hear your thoughts!

Oh yeah, one last thing; for now I'd like to keep our attention solely focused on official releases. Bootlegs and other compilations will definitely be taken into account at some point, but for the first part of this operation I think we should stick to the official releases.

Feedback is most certainly welcome - this is your project too! If you want to lend a hand, definitely get in touch.

Finally, a massive thanks to payback3000 and jason for helping me out on the first steps of this project.

EDIT: Updated the list to include the missing Bulletproof and Reformation releases, plus added a video section.

EDIT 2: Moved first three single releases to EP section, created a Live Albums section and listed primary release date next to title. If there's no further objections, this is the list I'm moving forward with.

EDIT 3: Moved Radio Sessions into compilations. It's not really an album, now I think about it.

I've sent Drew what I have in my list which looks a bit like this (but lots more!). I reckon wait until this list appears and adding stuff about orange vinyl or brown bag there.

Cheers dudes, much appreciated!

Just to answer daryltaylor's question, the plan is to first list everything by release - then dig into the (many) different versions of each one of those releases. So at the top level, Poppies Say Grrrr will just be the one release, but when you visit its page you'll see all the different versions (in this case, the brown and orange cover). If you want an idea of what I'm going for, check out the discogs.com PWEI page (http://www.discogs.com/artist/Pop+Will+Eat+Itself).

How the hell did I miss Bulletproof?! :)

Now, does anyone have any opinions on which releases should be EPs or singles? I thought the earliest releases might be better categorised as EPs... and I'm still trying to decide if it's a good idea to separate the live albums from the studio albums. Although, the more I think about it, the more I think it makes sense to separate them.

I have a copy of all the reformation CD's with a DVD in a Silver box set. The least I could do not being able to get to those gigs was to order them.

i don't have the On Patrol CD tho....my credit card useage has been revoked.
