Showing Off The GoodsPosted: September 18, 2012
**Hasty update. The vinyl is indeed all gone. In fact, the 100x copies that Boomkat took possession of appear to have been snapped up in a single afternoon! But just to let you know I’ve ordered a second pressing, this time on even-more tempting green and white vinyl! If you DEMAND to know when this occurs (as many of you have been), then please send an email labelled ‘Repress please!’ to robinthefog @ gmail.com and I’ll let you know as soon as they’re available (hopefully no longer than a couple of weeks). Apologies if you were dissappointed this time around, I really wasn’t expecting this kind of response. But thank you so much for all of your kind words and support! Hugely appreciated! Now I’m off for a lie-down. While I’m away, check out this mixtape I’ve just made in support of the The Ghosts Of Bush for Joseph Stannard’s splendid blog, The Outer Church. You’ll find it here.**
The vinyl is finally here! I was going to make a big fuss about it on these pages, but had already let it slip on various social networking sites a few days ago with the release of this semi-official press shot, and through word-of-mouth alone have sold a quarter of the stock already!
However, I thought it might be an idea to cook up something a little more formal in case anyone out there thought that photographing the record amongst the contents of my shelving (including Cookie Monster, a mid-ninetines cast of my teeth and several ‘Hardcore ‘Til I Die’ box sets) somehow compromised the solemn momentousness of the occasion. So, in the spirit of solemn momentousness I proudly present ‘The Ghosts Of Bush’on vinyl:
One day I will figure out how to photograph a record without my big geeky reflection staring out. Until then, we must all suffer.
Looks great, doesn’t it? Thanks to Curved Pressings for doing a splendid job and to Lisa and Hannah for the amazing photographs. Buy it here and look sharp about it – they’re selling fast!
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go and cause a lot of upset at the Post Office…
