Donnas! Forever!

Here's a description of the Donnas latest project, announced last week:

The Donnas are excited to announce their latest project: a detailed retrospective collection of their illustrious 15 year (and still counting) career. It will contain remixes and re-recorded versions of classic songs from their extensive 7 album catalogue, unreleased B-sides and rarities, as well as brand new songs. To add to the decadence, the package will also include video footage from the Donnas archives, past to present! The band is ecstatic about this collection and hope to have it out by Spring '09. It will be released on their own Purple Feather Records and distributed by Redeye Distribution. Please stay tuned for further updates.

Fun! Haha, I'm excited. I've always thought it'd be cool if they rerecorded some of their old songs now with they skilllll just to see what it sounds like. I can't wait to hear it! Plus, new songs are always great. I love that they have their own label now because they can do cool stuff like this simply because they want to haha, it's good!!

Then they updated us with this message on Tuesday:
"Helloooo from the studioooo!
Isn't it great that they gave us such a great deal to record at Abbey Road, for free!! All we have to give them are autographs, which is so hard and draining but it's worth it right?! Ok, just kidding, we're still local, but we are in the studio, and we're having a great time recording some tunes from the past and giving them new life! It's kind of crazy like therapy, bringing back all kinds of memories, like when we used to hide radishes from Happy Taco in each other's bags!! Anyway, we hope these things are as fun and nostalgic for you too.Rock awn! Luv,The Donnas"

So it seems to be in full effect now. I'm assuming itll be out around may when their bandiversay is, haha. I want to know what they're rerecording!! They haave to do Rock n Roll Machine, and if they do Leather on Leather I think I will DIE, I go crazy for that song. Their bratty, kitchen-recorded early early stuff should prob remain as they are, songs like We Don't Go and I Wanna Be a Unabomber, which are perfecto the way they are and MAGIC of their time. They might not work so well polished. Songs like Shake in the Action, though, would sound incredible with what they can do now. Whatever they decide to do it's gonna be awesoome, oh yeah.

Truly one of the most underappreciated bands of all time, whats it gonna take to make people listen??
