Occultation catalogue

Those of you wise enough to have purchased The Granite Shore's epic new 7", Flood of Fortune, from Occultation will have received a special bonus insert in your parcel. So, just in case you couldn't quite believe that the forgotten/lost/unappreciated* Manchester band were releasing new material, there it is on the reverse in black and white. Occultation Recordings Catalogue 2009-2010: The Distractions - Black Velvet EP Digital release. And of course we hope for at least three further additions to the list... the CD Nothing and the new single (being recorded tomorrow!) from The Distractions, plus the long-awaited comeback album from Liverpool's not-quite-as-forgotten/lost/unappreciated* legends, The Wild Swans.
