I'm possibly a few releases away from getting pissed off at coughing up so muich for a flexidisc. Admittedly the accompanying literature is excellent but come on, for the price I'm paying would a vinyl 7" be too much to ask?

^^ to be honest, this release was less about the music and more about the book. this album is only 35 min long and about 15 min of those are people telling you stories about the black dog


the book on the other hand is 80 pages and includes a dvd. so the music is a very small part of the project
