Twelve years in the making and three minutes, nineteen seconds in the charts, the Cuban Boys finally get to release the album the public always feared. Featuring “that annoying song made by hamsters” along with all the other weird singles and leftfield radio favourites, 21 tracks in all, Art Vs Commerce is the mother of all compilations.

Besides the big chart hit, the album delivers some delightfully offbeat fodder, a popular TV Theme, a lost gem, a brand new single and seven tracks voted by the listeners of BBC Radio One into John Peel’s Festive 50 including the 1999 Winner. Alternative music has never sounded so fresh, quirky, dysfunctional and disturbingly kinky.

Always different. Generally misunderstood. The Cuban Boys hope you enjoy a celebration of their creative spirit.
