A collector’s edition

Here's part of another nice piece on The Distractions, recently posted at the Sunsync - belles lettres du jour site. Enterprisingly, this formed the prelude to an advertisement for the sale of The Distractions' second EP.  This is a mint and unplayed record, a few of which were unearthed in a warehouse, presumably somewhere in the US...

  Hard-to-find 45 single THE DISTRACTIONS


Wishing The Distractions good luck in meeting their finance goal on Pledge Music and releasing their vinyl record / re-mastered CD / book project in the near future. They’ve almost reached their goal, so head on over and pledge at least $15 to download their 10 song sampler immediately and/or pre-order a version of their book-set collection, hand numbered and possibly autographed: http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/thedistractions

This project comprises 1 x vinyl + 3 x CDs housed in a 100+ page 12” hardback book, which includes virtually all of #1 Distractions music unavailable for decades (99% of it has never been digitized). That’s all sorted now, they’ve gone back to the original analog reels and found the first generation masters as well as outtakes / alternative mixes / demos and some long-forgotten tracks as well. Only 500 copies of the Parabolically Yours book-set will be made available, a seriously limited edition that you’re not going to find anywhere other than Pledge Music (for pre-ordering) or if any left at HiddenMasters.net, meaning it won’t be possible to order via any other entity (eg Amazon or similar). By including more recent studio and live recordings, this will bring The Distractions story up to date. A goodly portion of everything collected for this project has never been heard before. A collector’s edition? It will be for me. http://www.pledgemusic.com/projects/thedistractions
