All Eyes out on Monday By Moog and Squirrel at 21:32 on 18 October 2004
Just a reminder that All Eyes is out on Monday.

It's out on 2 CDs with different B sides that were recorded in Berlin. If you haven't already done so you can preorder them from HMV here and here. Then sign up for your free slipcase to hold both of them here. There's also a 12" with some remixes here.

The band have made them as cheap as they are allowed to and if you buy both CDs you'll get three brand new and rather brilliant tracks that aren't on the album.

If you look closely at the links you'll also see that you can buy the album too, if you haven't already got it ;)

Chikinki rule!
