Take a look at Mark Pritchard’s “stories” on Instagram... spinning some test pressings?

Norman gave the refund straight away.  Fuck the bullshit, and bring on the actual re-master.

Well this has been released and some people seem to be happy with it. However, Robin Rimbaud confirmed again that the official version is coming this year:

The key take for me is that this Vinyl On Demand label didn't even think to ask the artists about reissuing it first. Just straight up used their previous contract (which is no doubt in perpetuity, like all major labels) and pressed it. And of course, the record stores don't even think to ask where it came from either. I doubt a penny of this will go to the artists.

Sad for Tom and Mark. Imagine going through the effort of planning an anniversary edition of one of your most celebrated records, going through the effort of getting it remastered from DAT, organising remixes by other artists to expand it etc.. Then you find out, from literally nowhere, that another label with dubious rights to your record gets there first and does the absolute most basic job imaginable. Now most people who don't follow things closely will find the record repressed again in a few months time and think "uh wait, why should I buy this again?"

Welcome to the world of major labels and licensing contracts I guess. Where there is money to be made, someone out there will want to screw you over.

I would definitely be very angry if that would happen to me... 

By the way, the label name that has released the "76:14" bootleg is called Music On Vinyl.

Vinyl On Demand is another label specialised in Industrial / Experimental / Avantgarde re-issues which - as far as I know - has a very good reputation both for correctness and quality.

Oops, yep! I'm constantly mixing those two labels up, which is silly because they're a world apart in quality.

Great news, Pentamerous only got a 2-track promo 12" not the full album on vinyl.  Too bad it can't contain the original Star Wars samples, but those versions are available online if you look.

Actually it did get a full vinyl release. I have a copy. Sadly the pressing wasn’t great, so really looking forward to a repress!

Ah, then I was misinformed by a friend who has the promo.

Man, that's an album that's been in need of a reissue for such a long time. 

And unreleased material is always welcome. Very excited for everything to come.
