More Pure On The Shop Floor

…literally…IMG_3269

…grab a copy before they all walk out the door…

…or…. less discerning customers stand on them…

…some may even be orange…

…I don’t think I can get any more.

(personal renditions of the above,  my new poem “Pure for sale”, available on request).

…try this too…

It Could Be Pure Coincidence

…but…

… a delegate from the North East Valley Scraggly Musician League  popped into the shop the other day…IMG_2579

 

…with a long winded story about the resurrection of some long lost musical gem…

…of which the last known cassette-only copy was a  victim of a very serious dose of liquefaction during the CHCH earthquakes….

…all songs lovingly restored from the barely legible liner notes…

…sound quality checked (and passed) by the hearingly challenged at Too Tone records…

…and finally available on orange vinyl….just in time to pay for Pete’s xmas dinner….

…(make the xmas face, Pete)…

….hurry whilst stocks la….

…fuck…

…sold out.

 

…(thank you Pete for letting me check out the test press and bringing me some copies to sell, thank you David for helping Pete liase with non-valley residents, thank you Mick for digging your copy of Pure out of the liquefaction in your Mum’s garage & letting me take photos of it….and  a big hug to the team at 540 records…wish I’d had the forethought to record Pete as he talked me thru the whole thing, track by track (twice)….you could have released a version with commentary…’spose it’s not too late to put Pete in the post…what’s your address?…).

One Hundred Percent Pure

….that is how our government sells NZ to the rest of the world…

…it ain’t necessarily true…

..so I’ve come up with some more “appropriate” alternatives…  Scan 38

 

…that should get ’em flocking to our shores…

…left & down a bit from Australia.
