Still Snowing in Sapporo bears a striking similarity to How to Disappear Completely.

Spoiler alert!

Moving to plan B: the band playing to no one in a dusty room with random shots of countryside

How striking? On a scale of 1 - (Show me the wonder sounding similar to the theme tune from neighbours) to 10 (Sculpture of a Man straight up stealing Tommy gets his tonsils out?)?

Another pearler from the official shop - my 2 CD book just arrived in the flimsiest jiffy bag ever. Massive gouges from the corners and just in a general poor state. Great!

Emailed and not one f*ck given. Took a day's leave as well. That's me done with the official store.

Plot twist: official store order arrived (mostly) fine. HMV order got cocked up by Royal Mail!

Mine was delivered to my neighbour as I was still at work. My neighbour is not in now, and its irritating me greatly that there is only a concrete wall between me and my quarry. Every time a car door slams I'm at the window

No major order issues here either. Arrived in the same flimsy jiffy bag like Rob with the corners slightly scuffed. £7.50 though!

I love the yellow CD. Quality.

iTunes have fucked up though. Downloaded Orwellian back when it came out and pre-ordered the deluxe version which downloaded overnight, minus Orwellian and there seems to be no way of re-purchasing it or adding the single download to the album. Ffs.

This.

Order the deluxe 2 CD signed version from the official store and pay a frankly shocking £7 for p&p, convince yourself it's 'worth it' to get a signed copy, only to find out seemingly every bloody shop in the country is selling signed copies for the same price WITH FREE P&P.

And, after all that, they can't even deliver it to you on the day of release.

The official store is a complete shower of utter shite

If you contact Apple they should sort that out for you, but what a hassle, sorry.

I had minor crushed corner on my deluxe too and it was in a big card mailer, I am wondering if it happened before they were sent out.

Agree on the yellow CD, love it.

Excellent use of “quarry”! Reminds me of Gimli in The Two Towers.

I totally know the door slam / at the window feeling very well! Hope you get it soon!
