This is a limited edition of 100 cassettes, no downloads or streaming.  The other artists featured are: Komputer, Handspan, Wizards Tell Lies, Mark Lyken, Jim Jarmo, Martyn Ware, S.E.T.I.

The Soy Dios vinyl is back in stock having sold out for a while, and we’ve got some more Sixth Side Of The Pentagon CDs in.  Other titles are running low so if you want something, get to it!  All our releases are on Bandcamp, including some pay-what-you-want downloads.

If you consider yourself Medium-sized, you’re in luck as we only have that size T-shirt left, at a reduced price of £5.

We are honoured to be playing this all day event at The Witchwood, Ashton-under-Lyne. The event is to raise some funds for the tireless Pauline Town -who despite her constant support for homeless people in Ashton and beyond was recently broken into and robbed (this is a depressingly regular occurrence). This has put her livelihood in jeopardy and as a result, the work she does to support the community voluntarily. Pauline is a living legend and has been around the Witchwood ever since I was a callow 16 year old. If you can come down and support this – then please do.
