teenage fanclub - star sign 12" promo

teenage fanclub
star sign
12-inch ep

promotional copy

I obtained this disc under the same circumstances as the previous TFC promo of The King album
. Actually, I have two copies of this one (I don't know why); both are still in mint condition. As with most Creation Records promo discs from that era it comes in a plain white generic Creation promo sleeve which sports the label logo on the front and the mention: A Creation Records Product. Printed on the back of the sleeve it has: Promotional Copy Only and the label's address. Band name, track titles and catalogue number are printed on one side only of the white label. I don't know if there are many of these about but I imagine it must be on the wishlist of any true TFC collector. one2zero

this side: star sign / heavy metal
other side: like a virgin / star sign (demo version)

Back in business, after a long Summer hiatus at SoYS, I'm pleased to announce that the Orange Juice boxset on Domino will be released on the 8th. of November. You can pre-order a copy here (UK) or here (US) and check out exactly what it contains.
A fabulous boxset by the looks it and probably as lovingly made and packaged as was the case with "The Glasgow School, " the Josef K "Entemology" compilation, and the Fire Engines' "Teenage Codex Premonition" album. Certainly an absolute must have for any OJ fan. japanese forms

What I previously had to say about this great initiative by Domino on this post.
Special thanks to Fastnbulbous for letting me know about the boxset release.
