Unsurprisingly, Record Store Day has been postponed again. It will now be split over three days (?!): 29 August, 26 September and 24 October.

Releases will be split over the three, with an announcement on 1st June about which will be released when. So it looks like we'll be waiting until at least late August, possibly late October, for Cascade 2020 and We Persuade Ourselves We Are Immortal. Unless FSOL decide to sod the whole thing off and just release it earlier.

Why the fuck RSD aren't just promoting an online-only sale this year I don't know. There's no evidence to suggest that international lockdowns will actually be ended by August - or that they won't have started up again as winter sets in by the end of October - so there's still no guarantee these dates can be met anyway.

Cascade and Immortal are lined up for the August one. If it goes ahead. Which I would put money on not happening unless we get a vaccine before then.

In 2016, the RSD release was a reissue of Accelerator with a bonus 7" featuring the edit of Andy Weatherall's PNG remix on one side, and an unreleased version of Stolen Documents on the other. This is being reissued in tribute to Weatherall, who died earlier this year. It will be available on 29th August, alongside the other RSD releases, and undoubtedly FSOLDigital will have more copies a week later, alongside digitals and the Cascade CD.
The two tracks on the 7" are still available on the 2016 Accelerator reissue, but the 7" has never had a standalone issue.

I bought Papua New Guinea on cassette when it came out and I hadn't ever listened to the full Weatherall remix version until just now. The cassette edit didn't really do it justice. Also, I only just noticed that Kooner and Burns are credited so does that mean that this was essentially the first Sabres of Paradise release?

In some sense I suppose you might be right there. Hadn't considered it before.


The first proper press release on the MPB record:
The Amorphous Androgynous unite their award winning psychedelic compilation series ' A MONSTROUS PSYCHEDELIC BUBBLE ( Exploding In Your Mind ) ' with their symphonic new single ' We Persuade Ourselves We Are Immortal' ( taken from the forthcoming album ' LISTENING BEYOND THE HEAD CHAKRA ' ) to create this latest installment of the Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble series . Featuring a host of luminaries such as Peter Hammill -vocals ( Van Der Graaf Generator ) Paul Weller -piano and guitar and erstwhile members of the SPENCER DAVIS GROUP/ Ian Gillan Band AND SOFT MACHINE on lead guitar and sax among a plethora of other musicians ( including the Chesterfield Philharmonic choir and a full string section ! ) alongside collaboration & remixes with a host of bands ( ATOMIC SIMAO / HIGHER PEAKS / REGAL WORM / COBALT CHAPEL plus others ) to create one helluva progtronic psychedelic trip through the Amorphous Androgynous samplerdelic multiverse for this special numbered 180g RSD vinyl release .

Everywhere apart from Rough Trade, Boomkat and Amazon seems to be stocking this as an Amorphous Androgynous release (and Boomkat only got it right because I tweeted at them). Good luck selling to them trying to sell this under the wrong artist name.

Pretty much every RSD release is pricey this year sadly.

Clips of the release are here!.
