Meant to ask, despite my best attemptsI can't get to the album launch due to work commitments :(

I have PM'd Graham and asked if I can get a signed copy sent out but no reply yet.

If anyone is going I'd very much appreciate it if they would be kind enough to get me a copy? I would of course pay for any p&p costs and I'm sure I could throw in a bit extra for a couple of pints to say thank you!

There's a brief 30 sec clip of Skylon available on Amazon. You can also purchase the track for 99p (I think?) Sounds good!

The first people in the UK who pre-ordered their album through 808 State have received the album today in the mail!

Whilst my physical album hasn't arrived yet, all the tracks are now on the guys youtube channel so I've had the pleasure in listening to it in full.

Wow, it's fantastic (no Ujala pun intended). I can't believe it has been 17 years, we've missed out on so much good music but the lads are back (hopefully for the foreseeable) with a bang.

Highlight tracks for me are Skylon which is absolute sonic magic, Pulcenta - a crazy wonk of a track and Carbonade, which has a throwback dancefloor feel to it.

I can't believe how good this is. Backed up with the Initial/Subsequent Granada tracks it is a very impressive volume of work.

Congratulations to Graham and Andy. Great to have you back and on top form. Long may it continue!

Hi Mark, I'm off to the Manchester signing tomorrow - what format do you want me to get?

As to when I'll be able to get to a post office to send it, that's a very good question, as there's none near where I work, and I'm away (working/abroad weekends) for basically the next 3 weeks...!

Anyway, PM me your address if you're still interested?

There are some other forum members going tomorrow if you need it before then? 8)

So happy with this release!!! Everyone who is going to the party tomorrow - have fun, health reasons are preventing me for being there myself. Enjoy!

Hi Nick

Did you get my PM? Just noticed messages seem to be stuck in outbox which is perhaps why Graham didn't reply.

Cheers
Mark

Damn...been out so just seen your reply.

Too late now I guess, never mind. Thanks anyway.

Perhaps if I can get in touch with Graham I can sort something out.

Nick King had a few names for that track last night, but we got there after a few guesses :p
