Afternoon all. We have now shipped all advance orders for the Wild Swans latest opus, Liquid Mercury - thanks to every who pre-ordered for their patience; we really did get everything out as quickly as humanly possible but we had a huge number of orders to make up and then take to be posted. If you've not yet received yours then it is in the post and any orders placed from now on should ship more or less immediately, within 24 hours in most cases.

Above is a photo of the limited complete set for the new Wild Swans single, Liquid Mercury, showing the 7" single, the limited (pretty much all gone now, I'm afraid...) signed photo insert and the also limited promo CD, these are still available to buy with the 7" only for us, while stocks last. We're currently making up orders and, although we managed to get a very small number in the post yesterday, we'll begin posting in earnest tomorrow. If you've ordered from us you'll get an e-mail once your order has been despatched but please be patient as we have a huge number of orders to process, we are doing them chronologically, as far as possible.

We realise this has been an expensive month for Wild Swans fans what with the release of the new single and the gig in Liverpool but surely you've been saving up over the last twenty years? If so then there is now a small but highly select range of WS merchandise available over in the Wild Swans Shop on the band's own website. This includes t-shirts, autographed posters from the July gigs and badges.
Everything is of the highest quality and very reasonably-priced. Boarding passes for the deck concert marking the launching of the good ship Liquid Mercury (may God bless her and all who sail her dead cat-bestrewn waters) are still available at the same place, although they are selling quickly, so we're reliably informed by WS HQ.
We've just received the last bits of the Liquid Mercury jigsaw puzzle so we've started making up advance orders. We're hoping to post a few today (Saturday) and then more on Monday and on through the week until they've all gone. As far as possible the first orders placed will be the first to be posted. Please be patient though, as we've had huge demand for this one and we've also got a whole host of combinations (7"s with promo CDs, with 10"s, etc.) so it might take us a few days to get all of the orders out. Still, the good news is that the threatened UK postal strike has been put on hold and so, once the initial backlog caused by the one-off industrial action over the last fortnight has been cleared postal services ought to be back to what passes for normal.
If you've ordered already you will receive an e-mail from us to let you know that your order has been posted.
Can I also offer one final reminder that PayPal, in particular, usually only give us the address to which the card used to pay for the transaction is registered. So if you want your order posting anywhere else you must send us an e-mail with the delivery address, otherwise chances are we won't know and will post it to the address we receive with your order. If you've already ordered I'd suggest you do this quickly...
OK then... We're very pleased with the way Liquid Mercury has come out, the singles look, feel and sound fabulous - we do hope you'll agree.
