Fur Patrol's "Pet" 20th Anniversary Vinyl Pressing

Project 2020-07-03 18:31:55 +1200

HOLY WHAT... TWENTY ACTUAL YEARS! (Are you sure they're not dog years?)

 

 

Our platinum-selling debut album Pet is twenty years young this year, and has been completely out of circulation for almost as long. To celebrate this milestone (and fulfill a long-held dream) we are going to press Pet on vinyl – a limited edition run of 12" double LPs, in beautiful gatefold packaging (that's the fancy one what opens and closes like, well, an album!).

 

On its first outing, Pet spent a total of 30 weeks in the charts! It contains the singles Andrew, Holy, Spinning A Line, and the song which knocked Destiny's Child off the number one Christmas spot in 2000... you know her name... Lydia. This time around, we are officially including, for the very first time, the oh-so-'90s "hidden track" Bottles & Jars (seriously, did you even know it was there???).

 

We have a number of our original Furry team on board to help us with this pressing, including designer (and small toy torturer) Andrew B. White, who is lovingly fattening the CD artwork up to LP size; and the songs themselves have been remastered by Welli-whizz Mike Gibson, who was in the studio with us all those (but not that many) years ago, as our Pet engineer!

 


 

REWARDS!

 

Everyone who pledges to help us make the plastic thingies will receive a digital download of Pet, in the file format of your choice. As a bonus, we are proud to offer to you a digital EP of our live performance at Radio New Zealand's sadly decommissioned Helen Young Studios. Recorded by RNZ stalwart/treasure Andre Upston in 2000, the EP features beautiful live recordings of Holy, Andrew, Hauling You Around, and (of course) Lydia, plus two rarities – Fall (which was the B side to Andrew), and the never-before-released Just Like You. Ngā mihi nui, Radio New Zealand!!!

 

You can pre-order your copy of the LP, but why stop there? For just a squidge more, you can have your name printed in the album credits! Like, in the artwork! Because, seriously, we can't do this without you.

 

Because we no longer live in the same city (or even same side of the planet. Waaaaah.) any more, we can't all sign these records. Instead, we are offering limited edition signed prints of the album cover. These will be printed in Paris & signed by Steve, who will send them to Simon in Melbourne who will sign & send to Andrew in Wellington, who in turn signs them & sends them to Julia in Auckland. Literally halfway across the world – just like the song says (Not Your Girl, in case you were wondering).

 

We are also offering copies of our second album Collider on vinyl; private concerts either live-streamed or in actual real-life in your own home; and, here's the goody... your very own personalised live recording of Lydia, with YOUR NAME in place of you-know-who's. This would make a great gift... just sayin'.
