Release scheduled for 16th April 2011 on K-scope. Not only will this help promote the album but Steven and Oceansize will donate all profits to... Tim. Our hearts swell with love and warmth for all these boys"

I doubt if it will be in MY indie shop - though we have Record Store Day over here too. If someone in England's Pleasant Land wanted to pick me up an extra copy, I would reward you (somehow) :D

Will it be available online? Bristol is devoid of quality record shops these days.
Hello little doggy,
My, you are a nice dog,
What did you just say then?
You could do some tricks! Oh, good, then will you show me?
My word that's a good one!
Would you like a cigarette?
No you can't, they're bad for you!

...'Rise' on the Triangle down Clifton way has a reasonable selection of newly released vinyl, so they might be worth giving a bell or popping in...

The last time i was actually there in the daytime was a year or two ago i think.

Rise is brilliant. For the good of my wallet, I keep my distance most of the time... if they don't intend to stock it, they'd surely order it.

Looks like they have a website. I never really go to Clifton much, being on the other side (read 'scummy') side of Bristol.

Oh!
I've just remembered to download the 3 bonus tracks from pre-orders (my e-mail about it came on 13/12 from pete@genepoolrecords.com).
Have we discussed them yet?

They were discussed for a bit, because they were made available just before the albums started to come through letterboxes. Obviously once that happened, talk of the bonus tracks got a bit drowned out in other stuff. :D

That said, you get them if you buy the Loyal Companion album on iTunes too.

This may have been posted elswhere-but a little nugget of information from a scaramanga six mailout;

We are honoured to have our version of Cardiacs hymn-like anthem ‘Home of Fadeless Splendour’ included on this album. All proceeds so far have done wonderful things for Tim – regular complimentary treatment and the purchase of a car which will mean he can leave the hospital for trips out more frequently and with ease.'scaramanga six';

Apparently the first run of cd's has sold out!

Not all gloomy news then.

Cheers Arf
