Relocating our CD collection today and came across them.

Also, Softcore - I take it all back. I thought it was just a blank CD with writing on it, but it is has a printed onbody and an a5 paper insert. However, I am pretty sure that there are a number of burnt CDs as I burnt/sold them myself at the London show (I was doing merch) of the tour as stocks had run low. i may have confused matters entirely but this is how I remember it.

I doubt we could be that lucky. I'm betting Evan just found them laying around, he probably got sent far more promos than he ever cared about. I know he's gotten test pressings to actually test out the record before it's officially pressed. He doesn't have to seek them out later like we do.

I am super jealous of the way you get TPs Evan. I've spend £100s on mine

It's not the hardest to find, but there's a Yellow version of the Jonah split for $25 on Vinyl Collective.

That's the only Jonah I've ever heard. I need to get an MP3 of A New England so I can listen to that song more often. I love Billy Bragg, and that's a great cover.

That song just came on my iPad as I was reading that. Weird.

Congrats. There can't be that many of those hanging around. I doubt many people took a 17 year old's homemade magazine that seriously, and even less probably kept them

That's my guess. I figure frank either has 1000s under his bed or hasn't seen it in a long time.

I wonder what 17 year old FT would have made of that if you'd told him that one day those would be changing hands for 20 quid...!

I echo the earlier sentiments of photos/scans of it somehwere online. I'm sure we'd all be intrigued to see it ha!
