I haven’t burnt off and send out the LJ CDs yet. Sorry. Christmas and NY got in the way.

Will get on it as soon as I can.

What a nice bunch you are. I got rather more emails than I was expecting re: the LJ CD thing.

I’ll probably send out more than the original 5 I was planning, just because people took the time to send a message….and it seems rude not to reward that somehow.

OK, so I’m going to run off a few CD copies of “Strange Game” and 5 people I don’t know can have a copy. Serial numbers 0005-0009 are allocated for this. Each copy will be unique in the sense that the serial number is printed on the CD itself so they’ll all be a one-of-a-kind….

It’s a simple thing really, you send an email to saying why you should have one, in as many or as few words as you like (funny ones are good) and I’ll pick my favourite five and send you a CD – at no charge whatsoever, wherever you are in the world…

Closing date is December 15th 2008 – I’ll probably be quite slow at sending them out, and it’ll get caught in the Christmas posting chaos, but they should be with the ‘winners’ by the New Year-ish…

Finished the LJ album this afternoon.


Should be up on iTunes end of January I’m thinking.

Update: Will be out on iTunes and other fine download establishments (list to follow) on 3rd Feb 2009.

You know I said the BPA album would have 14 tracks?

Well it’s back to 12 again. At least in the UK.

Different bits of the world will have slightly different versions of the album, depending on our mood, so look out for non-UK tracks popping up here and there. And, if you’re in the right place in the world, there will be vinyl fun too.

Spent all day in a shiny mastering room yesterday getting all the tracks to their final stage.

It’s all ‘in the can’ now, as the filmy types would say.

I’m playing around with editing some public domain video footage together for a possible first LJ single. It’ll probably look a little bit like this (but edited to the beat and be a bit more interesting generally)

You’ve gotta love what’s out there to play with for free, you really have.

Album now has 14 tracks, not just the 12. No, not the LJ album, the other one…

Coming soon….

some cover or other another cover snippet

BPA 3 inch CD picture

So, for those that haven’t seen/got one yet:

1. “Toe Jam” featuring David Byrne and Dizzee Rascal
2. “Dirty Sheets” featuring Pete York
3. “Should I Stay Or Should I Blow” featuring Ashley Beedle
4. “Same As They Came” featuring Jamie T
5. “So Fukt” featuring Lateef
6. “Electric Love”

Where this differs from the text on the packaging, I am right!!

Some of the versions of these tracks will have changed slightly by the time the final album comes out, creating a nice little collectors item with different mixes on etc.

The final album contains 12 tracks (well it does as of today anyway). The Martha Wainwright and Iggy ones are, of course, announced, and there’s a few more guests to come too.

The next single isn’t any of these, I should add. The video for it has been filmed and is currently in post-production (of which there is quite an amount to do).

The album artwork is all designed and decided. Norman and I oversaw the photography and package design of it last week – it’s based on a mockup I did some months back, which I’ll share nearer the time of release.

Update: OK, yeah I forgot that the proper website has all the guests listed on it. Well the single features one of the people on there that isn’t on the 6 track CD, and it isn’t Martha or Iggy. Or me. Only a few left to choose then I guess….

….even though there’s more and more things that won’t play them (well ‘accept’ them might be a better term)

This will make more sense after Saturday.
