loads of new release updates - after long time planning on various things, they all seem to have come along at the same time. to make things easy i'm going to do a package deal from the web shop on some of these items so you can jut order once and get all the items included in a single shipment (though they are all available separately should you not want the whole lot).
OLD Cathedral Transmissions release an extremely limited box set entitled OLD which includes all the material Yellow6 have released to date on October Man Recordings (Loops, Notes and Sketches, Live, If You See Something Say Something) and an exclusive disc 'OLD' which is comprised, as the title suggests, of old recordings. These are 8 pieces recorded during the period 1995-7 and exclusive to this disc. The Box set is limited to 6 copies only and contains all the material on CDr housed in a black card box containing 4 CDr, one 3" CDr, and some photos. Of the 6 copies, I have one (#6), Dave of Cathedral Transmissions has one (#1). Numbers 2, 3 and 4 will be auctioned on eBay. Details of the auction numbers will be mailed out as soon as available.

This will be available from Cathedral Transmissions website soon.
