Casiotone / Concern split 8"- PIAPTK series suspended
Good News and Bad news as usual. Good news first.
Casiotone for the Painfully Alone is covering Bruce Springsteen on an 8" lathe cut by New Zealand's very own Peter King. It's a split with his brother's side project Concern. Maybe both tracks listed below are from both of them, collaboration style? Not a lot of details on the site other than it's one sided, and you can pick brown or tan vinyl on the order page.
That's pretty amazing, I don't know how limited this is, but it's only $8 from People in a position to know.
Now the bad news sadly the 8" lathe piaptk subscription series announced earlier last week has been canceled. This release was most likely the first in the 8" series, now available separately. I don't know if people are getting their money back or too many bands dropped out or what, but at least they should be sold individually through PIAPTK's site. I'll keep tabs on future releases.
12.15.07 - Casiotone For the Painfully Alone/Concern Collaboration Square, Brown or Tan Marble 8 & 3/8" vinyl. We are now accepting pre-orders for the Limited Edition, CTFPA/Concern split, which is a one-sided square 8 & 3/8" on Tan or Brown marble vinyl. The records should ship shortly after New Years Eve. It contains 2 Bruce Springsteen covers; Born in the USA and Streets of Philadelphia. CTFPA and Concern (Gordon Ashworth, Owen's (CTFPA) brother) will be doing a Northwest (Anacortes, Portland, Seattle, Olympia, Eugene) tour in early January to celebrate the release. Preorder them on the discography page.
