Like buses

The third and final album by The Distractions, 'Kindly Leave The Stage', was mooted last summer, and now it's our pleasure to confirm that not only has the test pressing been cut, but the CDs are now manufactured.

'Kindly Leave The Stage' (YMIR7E1050; LP/CD/DL)

A1. A few Miles more 
A2. Last to leave 
A3. Talking to myself 
A4. What the Night does
A5. The Fire 
B1. Wake up and kiss me goodbye 
B2. Nowhere 
B3. The Connection's dropped again 
B4. Tell them I'm not here 
B5. The End of the Pier

If that's not enough, then how about a test pressing of an exclusive mini-LP that will be available with copies of 'Kindly Leave The Stage' from Occultation Recordings and Fishrider Records? 'The Distractions Go Dark' is a 10" mini-LP comprising alternative versions of tracks from the last two albums. This test pressing will be a rarity as it's actually on 12" vinyl. 

'The Distractions Go Dark' (YMIR7E1051; 10" mini-LP available as part of Deluxe package with 'KLTS')

A1. Last to leave (18-string version)
A2. Nothing lasts 
A3. Skin 
B1. Too late to change (acoustic) 
B2. Girl of the Year (acoustic) 
B3. Wise (acoustic)

Ordering details will be announced by Occultation and Fishrider soon...
