Dec 2011 - Amazing Radio & Breckenridge.
2011 is over officially and I'm listening to John Lennon's original War Is Over to flush out the karaoke version I've been hearing on repeat. Along with John Prine's Christmas in Prison, it's the only seasonal song I can tolerate. Here's a round up of Unquiet Nights news from December...

We had "Nobody Wants To Know" on Amazing Radio's Rock Show on Christmas day. More national radio is always good, especially now while we're doing things on our own. Thanks to The Rock Show, hear it below.

Having used "We Were The Ones" in a feature on Louie Vito in March, Allisports have used "Shoulda Said Something" to soundtrack the highlights of the Breckenridge Snowboard Semifinals. There were two versions of Shoulda Said Something recorded for the album, this first one didn't make it, but still - 12,733 views at the time of writing. Thanks to them.

I gave a couple of new year's resolutions to Chordblossom after we won their vote to have Burning the Tracks be the intro music for their videos in future. Got my ticket for Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers in Tuscany (not exactly UN news but it's the first chance of my lifetime to see them).
We had a writeup in Italian on Musica10.it which is a well read site, so thanks to them. The more we can break our name in Italy the better.
Our songs are still making appearances on the normal shows who regularly play us, but there should be some new ones to report through January. So here is "Someone's Love on Drugs" appearing in episode #100 of Insomnia Radio UK with fellow NI band And So I Watch You From Afar. Also this month Letter From Abroad was on Experience Due (Italy).

All the best 'til then...
