International postage to Australia was a bit of a killer - I rationalised it by thinking of the book as the "purchase price" and the CD as the "postage price".

But after giving the previous edition a miss due to the lack of a CD, it looks like I'm back on the Annually train.

Retro. :)
Good way of looking at the cost! I was very surprised to see there was a cd as well 😎😀

Can anyone contact me to help order mine? I would like to get this edition, but I won't pay 16 euros of shipping costs. That's unbelievable! 16 euros is more than a new CD in Poland.

Perhaps someone could order two copies and send one to my place with the cheapest possible option? From Germany or even UK?

Keep in mind that you will be charged import fees plus VAT if somebody sends it from the UK to Poland (EU).

International shipping from Germany is also not cheap.

Like I said, artist stores are no fun anymore since Brexit.

Seems like there won't be any import fees for EU. From https://shop.petshopboys.co.uk/gb/delivery.html

Had no trouble ordering this, although it seems previous accounts/logins are now invalid, none of my old ones worked, So created new account, got the validation email, add to basket, paypal payment, confirmation email from payment and the PSB store, no problems.

Shipping costs seem to have gone up too.

I was using Google Chrome on a very ancient PC .

Dog wrote: Tue 20 Dec 2022, 3:30 pm Reading the descriptions of The lost room and Kaputnik, I reckon this is the Modern Fascism EP. It’s also the backbone of the lost dark techno album. These aren’t just some random demos - I think they are purposefully putting them out and releasing them together as a package in the same way they did with Agenda - there is something here they want to communicate. It’s also telling that they are resurrecting the 1993 Face article covering their trip to Russia. There’s a narrative at work.
I think you're right!

The totalitarianism album in EP format.

So next album isn't going to be a Fundy type gig, then. Which really makes me wonder what it might be, because the Price era covered Pop pretty well. Maybe we're in for an orchestrated album.

Interesting that they've decided to release unheard tracks from the period of the last-but-one album. I wonder if that means they're not planning FLs of the Kobalt albums in future. Great that The Lost Room has been located and unlocked at last as this was the 14th fully-produced track with Pricey from the final Super shortlist (can't remember which b-side was the 13th now). Whoda thought it would take 8-9 years to appear finally? Now, what about a new album? It's been three years of bits and pieces now. 2024?

Surprising there’s no credit for Stuart Price for The lost room, given that was one of the tracks they finished with him. Maybe they went back to their original version.
Woof.

In bits was the other Price track that didn’t make it onto Super.

Four month wait for something that is clearly ready for release. Frustrating.

Yep, In bits, ta.

Or it could be the Jazz version mentioned in Literally.
