That's hilarious, I've been abused by an internet geek who calls himself 'Muscles'. Clearly someone's got some ego issues going on! Poor dear.

Spiritualized Poster Values

I've recently been reunited with some of my old possessions and I'm wondering if anyone can tell me what they reckon the following Spiritualized posters are worth - not that I'd ever part with them, just curious as I suspect they don't come up on the market much. First up is an absolutely mint Lazer...

Re: Will Carruthers + Flowers Of Hell split 3 inch CD

Yup so it's available now from http://www.awkwardsilencerecordings.com/awkward26.htm.

Dare I say it's a genuine sp3/spz rarity as opposed to 24 pages of hospital photos put out by a mutli national corporation in an attempt to have you fund the next Gwen Stefani album.

Can any of you suggest what my best bet is for downloading a cracked copy of Melodyne?

Interesting stuff - I'll pass them on and see what some of the band say about them. The 'digeridoo' one indeed sounds like an spz writing jam to me - given the runs on the guitar playing front there's no doubt to me that it's spz.

Naw man - it ain't me that put that out or that'll be putting out the second one. Doubt the second one will get called Friendly Fire 2 now given that Friendly Fire's the title of the new Sean Lennon album!
