Notes on the Subscription Series of 12”/MLP releases. (Please read carefully…)
As already indicated in the notes elsewhere, a series of six 12”/MLP releases, commencing with Glass Out's 'Never Force a Left Handed Child to Use Their Right Hand' debut, can presently also be subscribed to. The entire series will include limited edition releases by Glass Out (featuring an exclusive vocal appearance by the late Jhonn Balance on one song, fully sanctioned by the late Sleazy), Cindytalk with Philippe Petit, Main, Brian Conniffe, Human Greed and Faust's Jean-herve Peron with guests Zsolt Sores and Theme. Each will retail for around £11.00 (excluding postage), but the entire series can be subscribed to for 57.00 GBP (EU)/75.00 GBP (ROW), including postage. Also, a few additional items will be given free to the subscribers/mail order customers only. Subscription orders and orders for the Glass Out 12” are accepted now (see the appropriate entry on the Releases page). By subscribing to the series you are actively helping Lumberton Trading Company not only continue to both make good and interesting music available, as well as promote new artists, but also survive in an increasingly difficult environment whereby the distribution of such music faces increasingly impossible odds. Direct support is very welcome. LTCo, similar to other such labels, thrives on this noted direct support as much as the continued assistance of Cargo Records and a comparatively small network of friends, like-minded labels, mail order outlets and artists it has always depended on for small trades or sales. It is not funded by any grant or suchlike and is ultimately the result of a lot of hard work and passion for the music and artists it supports. With your help it can continue to do so, and it is hoped that enough support will come in via the subscription series orders and pre-orders to see things running more smoothly.
The noted Glass Out 12" is out in June 2011 and the next entry in the series, by Cindytalk with Philippe Petit, will be primed for release soon after.
