EurNoVision 2017 is NOW available for Pre-orders on CD Digipack and Digital Download!!!!! EurNoVision 2017 will feature artists from several countries we’ve never had before, namely: Latvia, Lithuania, Cyprus, Norway, Israel, Romania and Cyprus! The perfect gift for Christmas.
Yes you heard right. EurNoVision is expanding to be more than just a yearly compilation. There are many plans, some preposterously ambitious and unlikely to occur and others which are more realistic.
For starters, from the beginning of 2018 there will be a monthly EurNoVision show on Mixcloud, this gives us a chance to feature bands who we really want to have on the compilations but for one reason or another cannot. Additionally it opens up the possibility of playing songs by artists from outside of Europe but who have the same EurNoSpirit, whatever that might be.
Secondly, if you have wandered onto this website of floating internet debris of late, you might have noticed that there is now a BLOG link in the main menu. That’s because in addition to news items such as this, we will be posting occasional reviews, interviews and so on covering bands who fit into the EurNoSphere or who have previously featured on the compilations.
News reports are swirling around the webofliesosphere that Ex-Sex Pistols lead singer John Lydon AKA Johnny Rotten has shown interest in representing Ireland in the Eurovision Song Contest next year. Rumour (lies) has it that he unsuccessfully applied for a slot in this years EurNoVision contest and thus had no other option but to turn to it’s similarly named counterpart.

Behold! The artwork for EurNoVision 2017 – out December 11th.
EurNoVision are busy re-mapping Europe. BIG things to come.
Several media moguls such as the dreaded JOE.ie have been reporting that our similarly named counterpart Eurovision may be forced to cancel this years contest due to the resignation of 21 members of the organising committee.
Fear not! EurNoVision 2017 will be there to pick up the pieces should our more famous cousin be cancelled.
A big EurNoThanks to Fred Roberts of Ragazine for his review of EurNoVision 2016.
“The EurNoVision project which began in 2015 released a new edition late December 2016, curated by Paul Mangan. The compilation registers a strong political statement at a time when the veneer on Europe is showing serious cracks. Waves of refugees. Brexit. Terrorist attacks. While Europe veers towards disintegration, the cycle of songs shows a cohesive spiritual unity with many stand-out entries. Notable tracks are Rita Braga’s Erosão, a striking ballad on ukulele and broken piano. The Turkish contribution by R.A.N, from a country where protest has become extremely difficult, shows how art must pursue inner exile to survive. The German entry by Torstn Kauke – Warten Warten Warten, a song about waiting, offers a slow, deliberate beat, a monument of timing and catchy as hell. One surprise on the album is the well kept Russian secret AWOTT (Asian Women on the Telephone): Slavic chanting, industrial banging, demented saxophone that conjures the spirit of Captain Beefheart. The songs of EurNoVision should serve as a first stage towards deeper exploration of the artists involved. Tip of the iceberg of some amazing oeuvres. The next step for the EurNoVision project is to replace the Eurovision. I hope it happens soon.”
