The Rutles Wiki

I thought I'd make this post, as I've been thinking about more Innes tracks we could add in fun places to the wiki. I'm really proud with what we've done at Christmas Records, and I figure we can have more fun like that.

I think we do need to be somewhat careful with this whole "retconning songs to make listenable albums" thing. I think whoever started treating "Ging Gang Goolie" like it was "Yellow Submarine" was waaaay off. Same for treating "Mr. Sheene", a song about a racer from 1976, as a 1960's Rutles song, and of course those who treated "Shangri-La" and "Back in '64" as the same. Those are all fixed now.

But still, I think if we're careful we can sneak some other material in. It just really has to work quite right. I think it would be a nice way to help people find Neil's work, really.
