    I see that rock candy records are reissuing the eccellent album Astral Projector by Zon this Friday !!

  2. Gorecki says:

    Presumably when people cancel orders (or their cards are refused/ out of date) that makes stock/ pre-orders available again. I’ve certainly seen this happen on non-Amazon websites. I recall with one Manic Street Preachers set they explicitly said in an email ‘due to cancelled orders’ more stock of this signed item has become available.

  3. GB says:

    The 3CD reissue of The Cure’s Disintegration out on Friday is down to £7.99 on Amazon UK this morning (though their track listing is for Faith!) …

  4. Steve F says:

    Also out this week, although not in super deluxe edition of any sort, is the second album, ‘Two’, by Sink Ya Teeth. I think many on SDE would enjoy it.

  5. David Bly says:

    I would be pretty peeved if all of a sudden more Toyah boxes were available and I missed them again.
    As it was, I missed getting a copy three times, and in one case I had the item in my basket but when I went to pay it was gone.
    I even argued with an Amazon UK employee (on chat) about this, to no avail.
    So I have signed up for alerts if more became available, and have not gotten any alerts.

    Meanwhile, the same day I tried to get one, someone had one on eBay for over £100! THE BUM!

    Electronic-music giants New Order and Pet Shop Boys are teaming up for a co-headlining tour of North America this September and October, an 11-date trek called “The Unity Tour” that will find each act playing full sets and rotating who closes the show each night.

  7. joel ivins says:

    managed to pre order the cure for a bit over 8 pounds…so i think it comes to about $13 -15…all because of the vital website sde

  8. paul wren says:

    Wishbone Ash is the surprise package here and I have duly ordered this.

  9. Colin Harper says:

    On the Amazon anomaly front, I once noticed Bouvet Island in the dropdown menu of territories for an order to be sent to. I wondered was this some Amazon staffer’s surrepticious joke, but no, Bouvet Island – the world’s most isolated piece of land, never inhabited and largely inaccessible (certainly with no post office) – has an ‘International Country Code’, along with one or two other places that aren’t actually countries. So Amazon was just using a defauly ICC list. Still, I wonder what would happen if you ordered something and ticked that box?

    • george glazener says:

      @Colin, actually I live on Bouvet Island with my three cats and a dog. The UK authorities put me here as part of a witness protection program 3 years ago, so no one is supposed to know I’m hiding here. My mail is drop shipped (literally) from the air, and thus, I will be buying some of these items. Don’t tell anyone else, though….SHHHH….!!

  10. Colin Harper says:

    Wishbone ordered… hats off to Andy Powell for sustaining a band for 50 years. Quite a feat.

  11. Phil Wilson says:

    Seems there are more Toyah signed box sets at Amazon, I thought this was 500 only, but to test I put 999 in the basket and it would let you check out, so has she agreed to sign more do we know or is it an Amazon stock error? (Better remove them from the basket before I accidently place a £43k order!)

    • Dean says:

      I think you’re putting to much faith in Amazon’s software. I’m sure it would let you order 99,999 – it doesn’t mean they will send it to you.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        Agree with this.

      • Phil Wilson says:

        If you put 999 in (the most I think it will let you do), it usually comes back with how many they actually have left in stock. Maybe only after release though thinking about it. Anyway its number 3 in the movers and shakers chart so looks like quite a few have snapped up a copy this morning. Out of stock again now.

    • Chris Squires says:

      Amazon always allows you to do this, but it will fall over at the next part of the process. Every single “Amazon Exclusive” thread has this experiment repeated where someone attempts to order a mass of stuff and because it lets you get so far the assumption is that more have been signed and conspiracy theorists usually pipe up that amazon are trying to rip people off.
      If one thinks about it, that would mean that every single artist would have to be in on the conspiracy as I would damn well know if I had signed 107, 250, 500 or 1,000 of something and my right wrist would certainly know. If discovered there would be a certain amount of mob-blowback and I don’t think Brett, Belinda, Toyah, Lulu or Chris Difford et.al. would like to be part of that and have their legacy trashed just so amazon could make a few more quid.

      For the above to work and be a true reflection of a conspiracy, Toyah would have had to sign a minimum of 1,499 (for the 500 + 999) and I don’t think she would do that if the deal and advertized amount was only 500 (amazon would also have to be sure they could shift that amount+ too), Toyah would end up looking very small and foolish and she wouldn’t do that.

      • Paul Sinclair says:

        Toyah does already look very small to be fair… ;)

      • Phil Wilson says:

        I wasn’t trying to be a conspiracy theorist, I just thought maybe because it sold out so quickly they decided to do more, and I wanted to let other SDE users know so they could grab one. I did the 999 test to try and see how many were left (possibly someone ordered a lot, and cancelled them).

        • Chris Squires says:

          Sorry Phil, it genuinely wasn’t a dig at you. It’s just that sometimes a post *like* yours comes with, or attracts, such conspiracy theories. I should have made clear that was not aimed at you. My apologies.

          • Phil Wilson says:

            Hey Chris, no problem at all, feeling a bit sensitive today :-)

            Saw on Paul Heaton’s twitter page he has signed 10,000 copies of his new album with Jacqui Abbott, now that takes some effort.
