It’s shiny, it’s new and it’s here. Say hello to ‘In The Music’.

I’ll leave the song reviews for another time and just let you all drool over the packaging.

The Japanese release comes in digi-pak form with the obligatory obi-strip. Inside we have a marvellous fold out lyric sheet with a fantastic montage of band pics on the reverse, and as with all Japanese releases there’s an additional lyric booklet, which kindly explains the band’s thinking behind each song.

Get In(to) The Music – it’s magic!

Here’s a full page advertisement which appeared in the Japanese music press, promoting the original digi-pak ‘Snow EP’.

…was a fanzine published by TCS list members Sarah Frederiksen and Christopher Dooley. A one issue booklet dedicated to – in their own words – ‘Scotland’s Best Kept Secret’.

Stretching to twenty pages it documents the band’s adventures up until, and including, the ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ era. It includes a discography, band interview, lyrics, photographs and some pretty dodgy hairstyles.

There were around 250 copies printed, some of which accompanied the bootleg ‘Iceburg’ single, but this record had no connection with Sarah or Chris.

The two tracks on the single were ‘Iceburg’ on the A-side and ‘Remember Phil’ on the flip side, which was, of course ‘Twisted and Bent’.

A great wee piece of history.

This full page advert – to promote second album ‘I’ve Seen Everything’ – appeared in the NME.

‘Album of the Week’ no less.

‘Select’ was a UK music magazine of the 1990s which was particularly known for covering Britpop. The magazine launched in October 1990 and folded a decade later in 2000, mirroring the rise and decline of the Britpop scene with which it became synonymous.

Here’s a cassette given away free with the May 1996 issue, which includes a track from the Trashcans – the mislabeled ‘Pop Palace’.

Note: All bands – with the exception of the Trashcans – are printed on the front cover.

Typical eh?
