Andrew Weatherall's first release on his new vinyl-only record label has come and gone and I've missed out, mainly due to the release date, pay day and internet pre-order dates all being in slightly the wrong order for me. There were only 300 copies of the record- Timothy J Fairplay's The Last Reel coupled with a Weatherall remix on the B-side- so the odds I suppose were always stacked against each individual who wanted one getting one. There must be more than 300 Weatherall collectors mustn't there? Over at the Ripped In Glasgow Facebook page various messages come through- Weatherall himself seen going into Rough Trade with 10 copies under his arm, Juno having it back in stock- but no-one has it stock when I go clicking. It's not keeping me awake at night but it is perturbing me and I'm spending too much time trying to find a copy on the internets. Sometimes you just don't get what you want. When its release was first announced there were some 90 second samples put up online. Here's one of them.
