The title of this compilation is a tribute to the band Grandaddy.
Summer Here Kids (track 4) is one of their best songs, and they released two must-have albums in recent years.
The front cover was (loosely) inspired by the Summer Here Kids U.K. single (go have a look), and the back cover tries (even looselier) to be in the same vein.

This compilation was made in Paris, France, during march and april 2002.
Basically, the fact that this compilation must be « summer-themed » was quite a challenge to me. Scanning my record collection for potential tracks left me half desperate : the music I like is not usually summer-themed. Those who have ever listened to Radiohead know what I mean.
Anyway I eventually found two dozens songs about holidays, the sun, the summer and this kind of stuff. And, surprisingly enough, I really like the final selection ; I hope you will enjoy it as much as I do.
