Shelf-Life the LP has hit the streets. Get it while you can! Plans are afoot for some shows to "relaunch" Shelf-Life and Too Far Gone To Sell It (reissued in May) most likely in October.
Meanwhile Pat's playing solo in Brisbane on 17 September. That's with Sarah Chadwick and Matt Kennedy at Trainspotters.

Siltbreeze's LP reissue of Shelf Life is out late this week! Can't say exactly when we'll be holding it in our hands here or making it available locally (stay tuned), but if you can't wait go here to get the vinyl from the US or download it.

Plus! CD stock shock: a bunch of ole Shelf Life CDs were recently found in the Either-Way Records garden shed, so we now have about sixty left instead of six, enough to bother putting it up for sale shortly. Good timing.

And of course there's the other reissue released a month ago, Too Far Gone To Sell It. Get the LP (+download) from the label, LCMR. It's also on sale at some stores eg Phase 4 and Rocking Horse in Brisbane, AG Picks in Richmond and maybe others. Have a listen and/or download it on bandcamp.

ersary of the 1991 cassette and 20th of the 10" lathe cut. Get the vinyl from LCMR here (download code included). For listening & downloads go here.

Well the long-rumoured vinyl reissue of our '94 album "Shelf Life" on Siltbreeze is not too far off, it should hit the streets in 2-3 months. Meanwhile, new Brisbane label LCMR is re-releasing "Too Far Gone To Sell It" from 1991 also on 12" vinyl. That's expected in May so we'll be celebrating both at the same time with some live shows probably in July/August. We don't have any gigs planned before that but you never know. Our new album "Soft Knocks" is about ready to roll. You can listen to 2 of the tracks "Sugar Beats" and "Mirror Maze" on the player above, and there's now a picture of the front cover in the sound tab.
