Gaz mentioned some time ago about working on a new version of My Kingdom - seems it's been put together as a release for Record Store Day.
As with RSD, we can expect it to be a 12" vinyl release, apparently running to around 40 minutes. More news to follow...


The promised LP edition of the Abbey Road Cut of The Isness will also be appearing on RSD.

Theory, concerning My Kindom RSD 2018: could it be the one they reworked for the Acusmatiq last year festival?

I think we need a zoomed in version of that back cover.

Was just about to ask the same thing - Is there a version in a larger resolution ?

We'll find out soon enough - right :)

There’ll be a chance to get this later if you miss the RSD release, much like A:E:V last year.

“Originally reached no.13 in the UK charts in 1996 - taken from the top 30 album DEAD CITIES loosely based on "Rachael's song" from BLADERUNNER by vangelis now 22 years later the group have recreated the track in 8 new compositions seamlessly flowing together the journey travels from ambient rock to a land of electronica.“

Complete guesswork on a zoomed-in blurry image but:

Side 1 looks like: My Kingdom Part 1, then 3 other tracks
Side 2 looks like: My Kingdom Part 2, a track, My Kingdom Part 3, another track

Yeah I'll probably get those post RSD, unless I just happen to get up at a decent time that Saturday...

It sure will be strange having two long-form My Kingdom releases. Though I'm excited for any new-ish FSOL release. I wonder how much of the original long-form version will make it into this new one (if any).

So excited for the re-imagined version...also very happy for the Abbey Rd cut on vinyl (even if i already have 2 copies of the original promo CD, will for sure buy it!)...and since i always dream in viral blue ;) i really hope that after RSD day, there will be a double CD version of the Abbey cut, with 2nd CD of demos from the sessions (that were not included in The Otherness CD) or at least an extra track if single CD...that Divinity with Donovan singing....do i ask too much?.?.? :D

It's possible that what looks like 'Part 1', 'Part 2' and 'Part 3' in the tracklist are reworkings of the three parts from the original single.
Otherwise I'd imagine it'd be more like Translations than anything - what the track would sound like if the band had first made it now.
