Meh, but also SFA, so I’m still all over it.
Yep. Unsurprising but a bit disappointing.
JUST THE TWO HUNDRED QUID FOR THE DELUXE SET THEN
(still got one)
Looks like the bare minimum effort has been put in for the CD so I’ll just wait till it’s in the shops rather than drop £20 and a delivery premium on top via Pledge.
I’m a bit of a fairweather fan so not sure if there’s a story behind it, but have the first two EPs been written out of history completely? Always fancied giving them a listen but they don’t seem to have turned up on the reissues.
Most of the stuff on them was on other releases from memory - the Out Spaced B-Sides compilation would probably help out. Worst case, PM me.
You can still buy the Llanfair…(In Space) EP from Ankst Records for a fiver. Not Moog Droog though unfortunately.
Rings Around The World vinyl reissue just got announced - already up for pre-order. Looks like it’s got all the bells and whistles that the original had: bonus 7 inch, the side that plays inside-out, the locked groove etc etc etc. Sound of Vinyl have a nice purple edition (1500 copies) available too. Go go go!!
30 quid…bleugh (and missing the delicious b-sides)
Have the original
Looks like this was licensed to Music On Vinyl (presumably by Sony) without the band’s knowledge. They’re planning a ‘proper’ remastered and expanded reissue for the album’s 20th anniversary.
Wouldn’t that be 2021 though…
Yeah. Sony / MOV have beaten them to it.
Notable b sides from that era?
Happiness is a Worn Pun
Some absolute classics around that time
‘All The Shit U Do’ and ‘Edam Anchorman’ are fucking great.
remember really liking the video for that
Presumably a Guerilla re issue next year too?
Edam Anchorman is honestly one of their best songs. Still can’t believe how much amazing stuff they relegated to B-sides even all these years later.
I remember reading an interview with Gruff Rhys where he said that he wrote about fifty songs for the album.
