Landmarks, Ruins and Memories

The long-awaited vinyl album that gathers together the Funboy's Five's earliest recordings,   and those of Milkshake Melon, in re-mastered form (the church organ during the verses of 'Life After Death' is now particularly uplifting). The album is released on, and sold by,  the Italian label Ave Phoenix and can be purchased from outlets that include Bandcamp and Discogs.

Meanwhile Back in the Attic

Believe it or not, the 'Life After Death'/'Compulsive Eater' single, never sold out of its initial pressing so we still have copies for sale and they are in unplayed, mint condition, unlike the battered secondhand copies being sold on ebay. Even better, a copy can be yours for just 40 including postage if you wish to pay with British pounds, or $60 including postage if you prefer US dollars.
