So.... what do you know, about an hour after the below post I get an email:
"For those of you who haven't noticed, we've SOLD OUT all of our copies of the "12 Days Of Christmas" charity single from The Joseph & Mary Chain. But don't despair, you can still get your fix of Yuletide joy from the following outlets:
Sunderland: Hot Rats (0191 567 2099), The White Room (0191 565 8947),
Newcastle: RPM (0191 221 0201), alt.vinyl (0191 222 1213)
Action Records (Preston)
Rhythm Online (Cambridge).
Norman Records (Leeds), Rough Trade (London) and Piccadilly Records (Manchester) are also worth a shot.
You can also buy the single from our label site at karmadownload.
A lot of help I am.
