They announced there would be a re-press on their facebook page, but that was back in January. Nothing since.

An amazing album! It's like a new wave / DIY cassette version of Eno's 'Taking Tiger Mountain' or 'Another Green World'. Absolutely beautiful, it took my breath away on first hearing and continues to do so.

Caution! Locked Groove on Side A may harm your sense of the passing of time. I didn't realise I was locked in after 10 or so minutes :)
