I'd like a restored version of The Seaside even if those few tracks have to be remastered from another source.

And Mare's Nest on DVD

And The rehearsal DVD

And the original mix of HBaEB

And a sequel to SfSaI, a collection B-Side and EP tracks.

And
And
And....

I think she's Cardiacs' long-term shop girl?

Actually I always wondered if she's the one Mary who keeps popping in Tim's lyrics once in a while(ie, in Odd Even) :)

What did you order? Are you able to tell if they are new or old pressings?
Especially stuff like Guns, StG, stuff that had those represses in '06...

I have just been passed a message. It reads:


Mary has been working day and night trying to fulfil orders in a timely and efficient manner and, as you can imagine, there have been a LOT of orders to fulfil.

If our loyal fans do find a problem with their order, an item missing for example, please send a note to Mary at the shop immediately rather than broadcasting her inefficiencies to the world.

Discipline, including public chastisement, now as always, is a matter for the ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN but given the scale of the operation at hand we are likely to overlook this matter.

We will say no more on this subject.


Make of this what you will.

Sounds like the previously CD-R copies might be new pressings, pleasingly...

I have a little bag of Cardiacs badges that you can have. PM me your address and I'll send them to you. (Our pre-booked annual holiday annoyingly means I can't get to next Saturday's bash. I'll be thinking of you all and, especially, thinking of Tim).

Situation happily resolved, absolutely sterling work going on in the ABC distribution hub! :)
