  1. Does anyone know anything about the contents of the new SD card? And I wonder if its contents will be in the forthcoming digitals? And will the audio from the BluRay be included? So many questions! Whatever, this box is awesome. CD and postcard track are the favourites of mine so far.

  2. I had to house sit this week, look after my mums gaff and her Jack Russell Harvey (and most importantly water the flowers, garden, shrubs, herbs and precious hanging baskets, and obviously walk and feed Harvey, and look after the pond and feed the fish, and fix the goddamn fucking fence) Midsomer Murders.


    However being a cunning fox, by Thursday evening everything is in perfect order and pristine, so all I had to concentrate on today was The Hound, and Harvey was walked along the River Thames at 7am, back home by 9am. So I've been toasting my success all day (putting up a decent fence by oneself is a bit of a trick)


    Get back to HQ from pub (whirling and waving on my bicycle) in the sunshine and I want something I can roll with in a happy mood, but not bullshit pop and not to much of a brain-strain so I put this on. Man what a perfect album. As time goes on this proves more than it mettle.

    I enjoyed this entire post apart from the use of the word 'goddamn' which should never be used in speech or text by anyone from Great Britain. As for myself, I put on Tomorrow's Harvest today and really enjoyed it. I thought more than a few tracks were reminiscent of 'Geogaddi', but it's all BoC so why worry?

  3. I enjoyed this album. I also preferred the last Focus Group album, and I'd lost a lot of faith in Jim Jupp after New Ways Out. I wouldn't say Outward Journeys is the most memorable album I've ever heard (or even the most memorable GB album), but it definitely harks back to the old GB I know and love for me. How much of that is just down to Jon Brooks though remains to be seen.

  4. You've surely got to give it to him, Bibio's releases aren't always predictable. I can't think of too many artists with his diversity. Looking forward to this, couldn't be more different from A Mineral Love by the sounds of things. Would've liked to have got the special edition vinyl version but I was skint at the time.

  5. Not got a clue what's fucking going on. I got the message that I'd bid too low but would be getting 'awarded' with the release anyway. Even so, I've skinted myself til payday so I hope GWC et al appreciate it! Having bought all of the physical editions plus the digital releases up til now I don't feel too guilty. Might make a donation later depending on what I end up with.

  6. Polyethylene is hard to beat as far as their b-sides go. I'm very fond of The Butcher as well, and The Daily Mail / Staircase*. As for this release, even though I've heard everything before I can't but treat the supplementary tracks as a kind of long-lost album. Flows pretty well for me. My only gripe is that for £100 I'd expect the CD to be chucked in with the boxset. Not to worry though, ordered both anyway.





    *Delete according to what you want to call the A-side.

  7. Yeah, maybe the 13 traclks total is the entirety of the AMSP sessions. I doubt it, seening as they started recording, was it early 2015? And to be honest, if the special ed had been advertised as just the 11-track vinyl and CD I would've preordered the same  out of my own completist compulsion. More importantly though, has anybody got this fuckimg record yet? I had a despatch email Thursday, but the tracking info continually says it's just been sent to the Royal Mail and not yet absorbed into their matrix or whatever shit. Just send me the fucking thing, FFS!


    still weird to me that there is 8 minutes of music on an entire disc from a band who is environmentally conscious..

    I thought it was a bit stingy when it was announced. Surely there was more left over than just these two tracks? I've bought the last two special eds (still waiting for AMSP to arrive). TKOL was OK but of limited interest for me, and AMSP could do with a lot more musical content to justify its pricetag even though it does look pretty lush. I'd love something else as expansive as the In Rainbows discbox. Still, I pretty much knew what I was going to get when I preordered AMSP so I guess I can't moan too much.
  9. I saw the updated release info the other day. I'm assuming Spectre will be on it, I'm afraid that track hasn't grown on me at all. I'm looking forward to getting it but ultimately it could well be an anticlimax seeing how far it is behind the main release. It seems they put a hell of a lot more effort more effort into the In Rainbows discbox, which I'm sure only cost forty quid at the time. On the bright side though, I haven't got AMSP on CD or black vinyl.

  10. Bah looks like the CD version is delayed... Wouldn't mind so much but they announced this 3 months ago!

    Oh well still looking forward to this very much after a bit of disappointment with the last couple of Ghost Box releases.


    It doesn't seem so, I got the CD and vinyl last Wednesday, I think it was. Great album by the way, on first listen it feels like the perfect sequel to Sleep Games.

  11. I usually find that with such hefty releases, the anticipation of bingeing on it all is better than the actual event. My attention span isn't what it used to be and I end up getting a sore arse and backache from sitting too long. In spite of that, I still want this. Hope I can get everything I want from the individual releases.
