Rudimentary Peni Pope Adrian 37th Psychristiatric reissue

Pope Adrian 37th Psychristiatric

We are (finally!) be able to announce the first of our Rudimentary Peni reissues.  We’re starting with Pope Adrian the 37th Psychristiatric. Yes, we know it’s taken forever. We have worked really hard on these – remastering the audio from the original analogue tapes, presenting the original artwork in a spectacular new fashion.  In fact, we think these new versions look and sound better than the original releases.  Pope Adrian, original released in 1995, was never issued on vinyl. Now you can own it on 180gm black vinyl, in a gatefold sleeve, with a full-size 16 page book of Nick Blinko artwork, plus a bonus poster.  The CD is almost as good, except it’s CD-sized, and it doesn’t have the poster, and it’s not vinyl.  Shipping on 6th May, you can pre-order from the shop now.

Action Beat tour in support of The Condition

Bletchley’s infamous sons Action Beat are packing up all their musical mayhem and putting it in the back of a van.   Next week they start a tour of Europe, their first tour since May 2012 (for most bands that wouldn’t be saying much, but Action Beat once lived on the road).

Seeing Action Beat live is truly an exceptional experience, and we are more than a little miffed that there are no UK dates on this tour.   Europe is clearly a better place to be!

TCX06VAction Beat are touring with four other bands (not all shows, check locally for details) and they will have copies of their latest Truth Cult opus The Condition available for sale.
