Limited edition (250) transparent yellow vinyl.

It's been a while, but to celebrate one of the world's great underappreciated albums, and to do something a bit damn cool ? Alcopop! are repressing the debut album by legendary British math-rockers Tubelord. Repressed on transparent yellow vinyl, and a very special version with a little bit of the original at its heart. Yup, we've literally taken an original copy of the first run's test pressing (from 2009), smashed it to dust, and sprinkled the remains into a limited edition run of 200. Please don't mention how much that would have been worth on discogs!

As one BBC reviewer famously put it, "Whatever you want to call that smashing up of songs and then stitching the bits back together, Tubelord do it, and they do it very well indeed! They really did, and now this very quote proved the inspiration for smashing up what had gone before, and stitching it back together via a vinyl re-press. Nice.
