No me neither, had hoped it would have arrived yesterday when it was released....

Just phoned Rough Trade to check, very apologetic guy said they didn't
get the signed stuff until yesterday but they would send out all the preorders
today.
Mine's waiting for me at local PO sorting office, needs a signature, wasn't in when delivering. Drat and Double Drat.

Mind you, tickets for Liverpool gig haven't arrived yet.
NOPE! - wasn't the cd, still waiting - treble drat!
Hasn't arrived today.

Phoned again to check that it had been sent yesterday, and was told that it hadn't after all.
The girl I spoke to was really helpful, but said that they had sold all of the
bonus discs in store on Monday, and were waiting for more to arrive in the next
few days, when they would be sent along with the album.
I asked if the signed print would be there too, but she said they had received the wrong print
and that these would now go out at some time in the future.

Not the end of the world I know, but I'm really pissed off that these were ordered over
a month ago, and they haven't managed to at least send them out on release date.
That's really disappointing. I think pre-orders should have taken precadence over shop sales. I will be forced to download from iTunes now just to hear it. Don't want to wait any longer
Just had another call from Rough Trade.
Apparently 100 bonus discs arrived yesterday, rather than the 350 or so needed for
the preorders. So 100 packages were mailed yesterday, including mine, so it should
arrive tomorrow hopefully. They reckon they should get the rest of the bonus discs
today and mail the rest of the orders out as soon as they do.. I'm sure he also said
the cd covers were signed, I thought it was the print that would be signed?

Re the print, he said they had received some from the record company, but they
were of such poor quality, they refused to send them out.
They are expecting those to arrive by the weekend.
Have now downloaded using my emusic subscription so can happily listen on my way home. Still had to use my remaining credits though so hope nothing else I want to download this month
Interesting folks.....We made sure they got all the signed discs and albums from Edwyn by return. So sorry you've had to wait. As for the prints, I want them to be lovely so I will sort it out and if you have to wait, I'll get you something extra. I promise to make this up to you

Hi Grace
Thanks for taking the time to reply, much appreciated. Don't want to seem like I'm moaning too much, just very keen to get my hands on the CD. A new Orange Juice/Edwyn release is to be savoured. Now, lets hope Domino are on the ball with 'Coals...'
I have just received a message from Rough Trade shops, they say all signed cds have been sent yesterday and today.
Yes, I have just received that email as well. Interestingly, they are blaming the 'supplier'. See below -

Dear customer,
First of all, apologies for the delay in shipping the Edwyn Collins CDs. We were delayed in receiving the signed copies from the supplier, and so could only ship today and yesterday.

They have all now gone out, so expect them any day.

We also however, wanted to let you know that the poster will be sent separately as it needs to be packaged on its own to prevent damage.
Regards,
Will
I got that email yesterday but still nothing from the postie today. Mind you its pissing down in London just now so maybe he's late and might still come. Really wanted to hear the new album on vinyl before tonights show. Spotify just ain't the same. Come on rough trade. Wonder if i'll get mine signed 'cos i ordered the vinyl?

Art Work and Bum Fuzz

Posted by scott owen on May 5, 2017 at 17:15 0 Comments

My Bum Fuzz unit just arrived in California along with some plectrums with Edwin art. It took me along time to order this unit, but the twenty five year gestation period for it to be built surely eclipses my lack of urgency. Best regards all...

Thank you for the music

A while back I asked Edwyn if he would let me use his music on a little film I made.  Here is the result: Mill Mechanics

Thanks for that.

Shareefa Energy Reasoning With Self - Review

Shareefa Energy – ‘Reasoning With Self’ - Review



A few months ago the BBC offered a profile of new emerging female poets, ‘Women Who Spit’. Watching the short films by Jemima Foxtrot, Cecilia Knapp and Deanna Rodger, I noted with great relief that the art of poetry is alive and well. I have always been fascinated by the medium. The ability to express intricate thoughts and feelings in a few lines of words. It is the most empowering process. And empowerment through self-expression… Continue

Thanks

Dear Edwyn,

Can I just thank you for your contribution to my life. From that very first shiver I got listening to Felicity on the John Peel Show to the smile I still express today when you burst into laughter half way through Consolation Prize, it's important I let you know how much your music means to me before one of us croaks it.

I was hooked instantly and bought all the singles and albums, the ten inches, 12 inches and even ripped the flexi discs off Smash Hits and Melody…
