Tubelord – Our First American Friends (Repress w/ original test pressing splatter)

“Whatever you want to call that smashing up of songs and then stitching the bits back together, Tubelord do it, and they do it very well indeed” said the BBC… So when we decided to repress one of the greatest alt albums of a generation, we thought we’d go for broke. Getting a pretty much priceless test pressing from Dave (Tubelord), we did the only acceptable thing, smashing it into many pieces and sending it to our pressing plant who pressed the fragments into the new records Therefore – each of the special pressings (ltd to 250) have a piece of the original vinyl dusted into the discs in splatter form. It may be a repress – but what it contains is from those 2009 glory days - and the tracks haven’t aged a day. Also available on see-thru yellow (also ltd to 250). 500 only ever to be pressed by us. Thanks to Hassle, BSM and most importantly, Tubelord, for being cool with the plan.
