The new release on Dirty Water Records will be in the shops at the end of this month.

The first on our new "Excavated Archives" series, this is a re-issue of the debut Lyres single from 1979 - "Don't Give It Up Now" c/w "How Do You Know?"

The original recordings have been re-mastered so the new release will sound loads better than the original, which was issued back in '79 in a pressing of just 200 copies. The sleeve comes with a never-before-seen photo of the band playing live at The Space in Boston around the time this single was recorded.

A number of other releases are planned for the coming year, including other bands from the USA, plus one South America and Europe, as well as some home-grown British talent of course.

International distribution has been set up so you will be able to buy it in dozens of countries (including the USA, Japan, Australia and New Zealand, Scandinavia, the Benelux countries, Spain, Germany, Italy and France - and with new countries being added all the time) as well as good record shops in the UK.

In fact, so many copies of this new record have been ordered by shops already we've just called the factory to tell them to increase the amount they're making for us!

Copies will be on sale at the club, naturally, on the Friday before its release date.
I'm not altogether sure where all the time is going? There must be a leak someplace because it's pissing away something wicked. Anyway tomorrow is the first Friday of the month, and in Stockholm, that means GEARCLUB!
