On that point, has anyone's t-shirt + polaroid arrived yet? It's nearing a month since I ordered mine.

Mine haven't arrived yet! I think the site said dispatching from Nov 20 if I recall correctly?

Exciting! I hope it's Sapporo! Over time I've grown to think of it as perhaps their finest song since 1985 (only a few on JFPL come anywhere near it for me).

So what do we think the and will get up to in the first half of 2022. Will they take a break or use the momentum to do something interesting. In case the gods are listening, I'm hopeful to see a couple of striped down gigs. It would be interesting to see the band re-arrange songs on their setlist and play some small intimate venues. That or Nick and James take their solo albums on tour, fat chance of it but it will make for an interesting time. They could also perhaps revisit KYE and GATS but that doesn't look likely.

Would also prefer a good GT / KYE recognition tour or at least a few gigs but I really can’t see it happening either.

I think the best we can hope for is a couple of radio shows / acoustic gigs where they play La Tristesse and Let Robeson Sing.

Probably a bit of chat in late 2022 for a 2023 album?

Well if there's going to be shortages in time for Christmas, I feel we can rule out KYE reissue before the New Year.
I'd like them to spend another January recording new stuff, if they have anything.

We definitely won't be getting KYE this year, vinyl takes a long time these days, even with major label backing, combined with it needing a month or two promo before release. If anything, I reckon they'll try and go for something vaguely around the release date for a 21st anniversary.
