Orbital's Paul Hartnoll is releasing his 8:58 project's debut album on 30th March & it will feature our Bob plus a cover of A Forest with vocals by The Unthanks.
There will also be a deluxe edition featuring an instrumental version of A Forest
He did play the cover on Lauren Laverne's show back at the end of 2013, but it looks like it'll now be on this album :D

You can hear Please right HERE. It starts at 2.07.30 (ish) so you'll need to FFWD it. But this linky will die 30 days after the original broadcast.

8:58 is the upcoming first album of Paul Hartnoll's new project titled 8:58 - he states that the album is a continuation of his work with Orbital.The album features contributions from actor Cillian Murphy, folk band The Unthanks, singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt, Lisa Knapp, Robert Smith, Lianne Hall and Fable.  The song "Please" is a reworking of the track of the same name from the album The Ideal Condition, Paul Hartnoll's solo album. The track "A Forest" is a cover of The Cure's track of the same name.

Performers are yet to be finalised but it will be a very beautiful concert whoever is playing! More details to follow..




New Flexipop book featuring Robert Smith on the cover.

The book looks great, but they need to make £10,000 to break even. So people need to pre-order copies.

THE FLEXIPOP! BOOK IS READY TO ROCK!

Here it is. After two years of blood, sweat and tears, The Flexipop! Book.

But this isn’t just any old book. It’s a catalogue of calamity, cock-ups and guffaws featuring many of the greatest moments to ever grace the pages of Flexipop! There’s also a Best Of Magazine plus an exclusive free flexi disc by Spandau Ballet and Marc Almond made with love by Pirates Press – the only flexi-making company left in the world and based in San Francisco.

We originally published 27 issues of Flexipop! with flexi discs on the cover (the next six didn’t have one) so the new record is numbered 28.

But here’s the thing. We can’t publish the book without a bit of help and we need to hit a figure of £10,000 to breakeven. You can help us reach that goal by pre-ordering a copy now, which retails at £24.99.

And you can also get involved by pledging to the cause - see the packages below which will be available for a short time only.

You’ve heard of Kickstarter – well think of us as Prickstarter because we must’ve been a right bunch of dicks to have started this whole thing up in the first place. Oh well.

NB: all transactions are via PayPal, so if we don't reach our target you can simply cancel order.

THE FIRST 200 COPIES OF THE BOOK WILL BE INDIVIDUALLY NUMBERED AND SIGNED BY THE AUTHORS AND FEATURE A SPECIAL CLEAR VINYL FLEXIDISC WITH A GOLD LABEL!
