Guess who thought it was next week and thus had extra time to collate the details for a special post, then?
You feel he'd have approved of this, though - CD86! Not a reissue of the original C86, unfortunately - no Stump (come near Buffalo, Google, and there'll be trouble), no We've Got A Fuzzbox, no Mackenzies, no A Witness - but we've been dabbling in an Unforgiveably Mid-80s Indie phase recently so that's going on the Wishlist. Revolving Paint Dream! McGee, what happened?
It's almost enough, in fact, to make us forget that the Decemberists' The Crane Wife didn't in fact come out in any form bar import last week, and in fact has been held back until January on Rough Trade's say-so. A proper tour in early February, though. Who wants to put us up in Nottingham on February 7th?
