    For info: fnac is country wide and a fantastic promoter of live music throughout France, and with the demise of the Virgin Mega stores in larger cities, they provide a wide range of music, equipment, books and dvds on all genres including international and UK artists. Just because you haven’t heard of something doesn’t mean it’s none existent.

    These look great! I have ordered both. I’ve always loved the ‘Loaded’ artwork.

    Thanks Paul,



    I haven’t heard of FNAC since the early/mid 90s when they were selling exclusive comp cds which proved to be a great bargain for Europeans coming to London and swapping them in the secondhand record shops as they always sold really well … I always wondered what became of them!

    Wish I had seen the Cale concert advertised before now as I’d have been there! Damn.

    Well worth a punt, took me back to my French lessons at school! Thanks for the shout, they look very collectible, let’s hope the coloured vinyl looks as cool as the sleeves. Cheers.
