So I got this in the post today. Released in October 2007 on Warp Records, it is a compilation put together by the man most widely known as Radiohead Likes 'Im (you lie, that was a year ago?). Here is the tracklist, courtesy of my man Jugo:

Looks good, right? Word. Only problem is I can't/won't break into the packaging to get to the musical oyster inside. As you can see above, it's something of an origami torture device and, while I'm sure I can get into it, I am not confident I could ever reseal it. I'd probably break it anyway. And, as you can also tell above, it's well limited and I especially don't want to muck it up on account of this artificially imposed value of ownership.

I'll let you know how I get on. But I would surely never download it or owt.

Serious note: I really haven't downloaded it. Nor did I upload it. But I figured, seeing as there're only a thou in the world I might as well link to a file someone else uploaded so the world doesn't miss out on the compage. If Surgeon or anyone wants it taken down I'll do so. 'Ere endeth the legal bidneth.

  1. I'm with Marx on this one. Labour value is of more importance than silly cardboard foldy value.

  2. How about eBay resale value?

    (Not that I would ever do anything like that either.)

    (The seal is broken now anyway.)
