That's good, but I'll resist the temptation to try and read it all - is it bart simpson doing lines or a mantra? At frist I thought it was all song names repeated but there seem to be other bits and pieces - escorial green (I expect we need gazzas colour charts to identify that tone) and amazon studios for starters.

Its funny how google sometimes throws up the unexpected when you double check the meaning of something. "Escorial green" threw up this poem as one of the first entries:

Very soon will supply the definitive track listing but just briefly - the original album remastered with bonus of 5 B sides making up disc one, disc two is a set of demos including most of the Calenture songs, two unreleased tracks and one extremely little known track

I didn't realise Calenture'd be a double CD set! Presumably the extras tracks from the ITP sessions will make for a post-Christmas stuffing well padded single CD?

It may have been a bit of a wait, but at least the bumper package is being delivered with interest accrued. What excellent value.

Well that saves me listing them here, though I will provide a bit more info soon.
That promo on eBay pisses me off, though it probably shouldn't. It clearly states that it remains the property of  Domino Recording Co. The seller is not my idea of an upstanding eBayer.

Probably a journalist or radio DJ*. What can you expect from the likes of them? ;)

(*the delightful Jane Gazzo excepted, of course :))

It seems appropriate at this point to tell my salutory tale about journalism and its small impact on my life. My Dad was until he retired a journalist where I come from covering the local political scene. When I was in my late teens I was briefly a member of the Young Socialists, the Labour party's equivalent of the Hitler Youth in the days before clause 4 was abandoned and the word "socialist" became of historical interest only.

One evening I found myself at a soiree of a ward meeting chaired by a local councillor at which a motion was moved to castigate a couple of labour councillors for some heinous offence against The Party - voting against a Labour sponsored council resolution of some sort or other. I returned home and mentioned this in passing to my Dad assuming he knew all about the controversy in question.

Next day the story was front page news in the local wrag in a lead article penned by my father. Turned out the situation was highly confidential and I'd acted as an unwitting judas to the party faithful. I shortly afterwards found myself cowering in the corner at a meeting at the Labour club at which the source of this leakage to the press was chastised without open identification of the culprit (unless my blushes gave the game away).

My Dad thought it mildly amusing, but I was thereafter known by my compadres in the youth group as "The Blue Mole" :) Blood may be thicker than water, but nothing gets between a journalist and "the story" when the journo's nose is on red alert. I learned that lesson, and I learned it well.

Unsurprisingly my dear old pa advised us against a career with the press on moral grounds.

Congratulations on your lucky win, pherron! Now what do you intend to do with this controversial promo copy I was wondering? Of course you won it fair and not-so-lonesome-square! :D

Slightly embarassing that I won it after Graham's comments, though it is the seller who is an evil money grabber! I must state at this point that I have long ago pre-ordered the proper copy from Domino. Listening to it early will be an early Christmas present.

I just gave it a lowish bid and didn't expect to win. I have the promo for Born Sandy too, just from an obsessive collector point of interest. I intend to try and get any of the promos that come out.

On a less seedy note I managed to get the Worm Dance tape on ebay just the other day. It has the Triffids doing 'Gilligan's Island' (same as Jack Brabham I assume)  and an interview with the Lawson Square Infirmary by Julian Wu. I can't listen to it until I finish moving house and unpack my tape deck. Looking forward to that.

I expect most members will have received Domino's mail out about the simultaneous re-issues of Calenture/In The Pines, but here is what it says for any who haven't:

Quote
Just a quick update on the 2 impending Triffids albums Calenture and In The Pines. The final release date has now been set for 5th Februrary 2007, but don't worry, it's only gone back 1 week! We will be despatching all pre-orders the week prior to the release week so you should have the albums on or slightly before the official release date.



Some of you who placed pre-orders as far back as last Summer have been emailing to check that their orders are still valid, so we'd like to confirm that this is indeed the case. Your order is still recorded with us and will be processed in a couple of weeks. If you have changed your card details since originally placing your order you may need to contact us and let us know so we can make allowances to fully ensure you get the albums straight away.



If you've yet to place a pre-order for these albums and are intending to then just a reminder that you have less than 3 weeks left to do so at the special pre-order prices which includes a very special bundle price for BOTH albums for a total of only 17.00! Click here to order the bundle deal now!
Best wishes from Domino!

The link provided for any stragglers on the pre-order front is here

That's good to know, Urpal. I emailed Liberation yesterday as they are yet to have any information on the website about the "Calenture" and "In the Pines" reissues. They replied this morning, saying that the local (Australian) release date is "so far" slated for March 3rd. Don't know if I can wait that long myself.
