We are happy to say the Thomas Leer 1979 album is now available. It collects all of Leer's early electronic experiments from the around the time of The Bridge, his classic album on Industrial Records with Robert Rental. There's also a bonus track that wasn't on the download release. In other news, Eggs for Breakfast by Charles Bobuck is selling extremely well and fast. Remember parts of the profit go to Planned Parenthood, so you can combine the listening pleasure with doing something good. March will see the release of our 3rd Snakefinger re-issue, Manual of Errors, and the first installment in the Darkening Scale reissue series. Stock on the following items is getting very low: The Division of Labour by Neavus; Missing Soldiers by Bobuck; Radio Manna by Black Manna and Somnambulance for Dream General by Andrew Liles. Don't say you weren't warned.
The new album by Bobuck, former composer of the Residents, is out and shipping. There will be a slight delay in getting these out to the public as the whole Klanggalerie staff are currently down with bronchitis. We expect to ship early next week, around February 6th or 7th. Sorry for the inconvenience. We do have good news though for our Italian and British customers: UK delivery used to be extremely slow. We have decided a delivery time of up to 5 weeks is unacceptable, and because we cannot make Royal Mail act faster, we are going to pay extra for a faster service. This cost will not be passed on to our customers, we will pay this out of our pockets. The same goes for Italy, where delivery isn't so slow, but instead a kind of a lottery. In the past few months so many parcels got lost or stolen, and so many replacements have been shipped, that we have decided to pay extra for a better service here, too. Fingers crossed it will help.
We have just sent the masters for Thomas Leer's 1979 album to the pressing plant. This collection presents Leer's earlies experiments with electronic music. We have mastered the songs that were originally a download only release, and added a previously unheard bonus track. Eggs for Breakfast will be a collection of Charles Bobuck's Tiny Tunes. 26 pieces altogether, and packaged in a colourful digipack sleeve. Candy for your ears and eyes. But planning goes ahead: we are currently adpating the Manual of Errors artwork for the 3rd installment of our Snakefinger CD re-issue series. Also, Un Flic, the brand new album by Rapoon is being prepared for a March release. It couldn't be more different to Waiting by the River, so you see, we love to keep you surprised. The January releases are both available from our web store: Eric Random & The Bedlamites' final album Ishmael, and French avnatgarde lagend Un Drame Muscial Instantane's second LP Rideau!. March will find us in Athens for the 2nd Etor Tenebrae de Profundis festival. We won't have a stall there, but many of our friends are playing, so please come and say hello should you be there as well.
