I've just ordered the new Minimum Chips record from Red Eye in Sydney*. The total cost, including postage, will be AUD$30.71, or approximately £12.62, which isn't bad.

(Sorry, givemethegun; I appreciate your offer of picking it up for me, but needed it in time for my end-of-year CD writeup. Though there are a few other titles I'm interested in.)

* the first place I could find that had medium-sized Australian indie and did mailorder. ChaosMusic is hopeless these days and seems to have little that you wouldn't find in a suburban Sanity (i.e., don't even think about anything non-mainstream); a far cry from when they bought Gaslight and tried to assume the aura of coolness that came with it. Meanwhile, the Chips' label, Trifekta (distributed by FMR), is too big and well-distributed (in Australia) for the small indie outlets to bother with.

Don't know; I didn't check. I asked a contact on AIM for recommendations and he suggested Red Eye.

I hadn't.

The fact that they list Sigur Rós's new, more commercially accessible major-label debut as their first album that doesn't suck is contentious. Unless it's an act of I'm-so-secure-in-my-indie-cred-I-can-get-away-with-it machismo, like proclaiming that Steps and not Belle & Sebastian should have won the Brit Award or something.

Yeah, I just took it all at face value, since I've no idea what sigur ros have done in the last 3 years - after a while all the mogwai/sr/gy!be sounds started to drain me...so i jumped ship and came back to pop...
