Someone in the other thread said 440. Doubt they're signed coming from Kung Fu/D&L.

The new record is off-the-hook awesome. Easily a five-star recording. I have listened to it about 8 times from start to finish.
Truly a gem of a record. Real honest.

Didn't see this there yesterday :

"The translucent white overprint is a collage made up of around 150 stamps from around the world, the area surrounding an individual band member is comprised primarily of stamps that correspond to a theme found in the album art. Some stamps act as a bridge between areas so they can apply to the member on either side of the boundary.

The detail image below is the poster with the stamp images brightened up so you can see the detail better. However, the actual poster has this overprint as faint with the added effect of reversing out over the silver areas and becoming positive on the black areas. I told Steve, the printer, to experiment with the opacity of the stamps and make their appearance on the poster seem almost like an insomnia induced hallucination. Working on the stamp collage for a few days and not sleeping much, I definitely knew what that would look like, and Steve nailed it."

I'm really digging it as well. Can't wait for the SF show, then I'll be seeing them a few weeks later at jazzfest as well.

That last song is "Carolina Drama" and it tells a very twisted story. But the twist is so weird in the last line that it still, after several listens, it throws me a bit and I can't complete the puzzle.
What about the Milkman? What was his role in the whole thing and why does the second son have his hat?
:?

Did Rob offer these for sale yet? I need one
