The Distractions - Lost video

Here's the video for Lost from The Distractions' Come Home 12" EP. It was filmed by bassist Nick Garside during the recording of the EP in Liverpool back in June (2010). More information to follow.

We've also uploaded the video to a page on the website which will probably offer higher quality. Click here to view.

Come Home...

Just a note to say that we've now posted all advance orders of The Distractions' Come Home 12" EP. All new orders will now be shipping more or less immediately, as soon as we can get to a post office, in any case.
Thanks to everyone who's already ordered and we hope you'll be as thrilled with this one as we are. It really is pretty stunning.

The Distractions have Come Home

This morning we took delivery of the vinyl 12"s of the new Distractions Come Home EP. They really are rather stunning, the sleeves are in lovely thick card, with a beautiful UV spot-varnish finish on the front, making the Albert Square shot on the front stand out from the grey of the sky. The vinyl is also superb and this really is the way to hear these three songs, at the highest resolution, mastered from a 24-bit/96KHz source. We hope to start posting out the first advance orders tomorrow (Wednesday 10/11/10) and to have shipped all copies ordered to date before the weekend. This is the first ever Occultation 12" but it won't be the last...

Come Home Soon

We've heard from the pressing plant that, due to the UV spot-varnishing of the sleeves (the picture above shows the parts which are being varnished), and the drying time the process requires, the Distractions Come Home 12"s will be very slightly delayed. We'd expected to have had them by this week and to be posting out the first advance orders around now, but we've been promised we'll have them next week and obviously we'll start posting as soon as we get them as we do have the limited promo CDs that are available to purchase with them already - we really are just waiting for the boxes of 12"s to arrive and then out they'll go as quickly as humanly possible. Thanks to everyone who's already ordered and for your patience - you should all have received a link to a zip file containing the three MP3 files plus the etc PDF.
We'll be posting news about the first reviews and airplay soon. Apologies for this but I expect the plant got a big order for the new Cliff Christmas single or something...
