Simple Mids 'Life In A Day' test pressing

Nice find this:  ZULP 1 test pressing in two artwork slicks that vary from the finished artwork. The front has different typography and image is bigger than on the finished artwork. Front has same image but absolutely no inforamtion on.

Looks like this was the provisional artwork and they sent a few out to those involved for comments/approval. Can't be many made, maybe a handful at most.

The Shend’s radio show

The Cravats' front man The Shend has a radio show called Spinning Man on Totally Radio. It's an hour long and as you'd expect from the big man, a mixture of everything from Anti-Nowhere League to Roxy music to Michael Nyman. Well worth a listen.

The Shend tells me that he's recording a new album and that they'll be playing at Rebellion this year, with a 'new' set. I shall be there.

The Rumor 'Emotional Traffic' promo

Recently acquired a large collection of promos on the STIFF label. Sadly not very early ones, but anything on the label seems to still sell.

Some such as The Rumor Emotional Traffic one-sided and Hard Enough To Show plug are quite nice as is The Tudors Tied Up With post-Tenpole effort, but there's a lot of stuff like Andy White, Passion Puppets, Untouchables, Tracey Ullman, Via Vagabond etc.

They'll all be on the next newsletter/update.
