    i gave juno the heave after their lack of interest in a record that went missing. They were more interested in making sure they were reinbursed first before i got another copy. I told them to shove it.. shocked by their behaviour actually as i used them a lot.

    Sorry to hear that, that doesn't sound great. I used to order a lot of my vinyl from them on eBay, then discovered their site and ordered directly from there. I've put a couple of biggish orders in (200-300) and a few orders for just one or two pieces. The only issue I had was 2 of a big order were warped, I sent them back and they refunded the postage cost on top. I think I'd be put off by lacklustre customer service too if I was unfortunate enough to experience it.

    I was listening to this album yesterday evening. It's certainly very different to her first offering, much more light hearted and 'up beat' - but I still like it .

    I also have the coloured (gold?) edition and a couple of friends had warned me that their copies were very noisy (I think someone said the same earlier in this thread?). Anyway, my copy isn't noisy as such, there aren't pops and crackles for example. However, there is a weird distortion that starts after the second track and lasts until side two (which is fine). The actual sound is a very quiet echo of the last line sung (quite clearly, but very quiet), from the left speaker, that sounds distorted - a bit like tape print through but with distortion added. Does anybody else get this?

    Nothing like this on the black vinyl version. We have two copies and both silent.

    Personally, I was a bit disappointed by Designer, much preferred the previous two

    Last night I eventually got to see Aldous Harding live in Birmingham. She played at the O2 Institute a small venue in downtown Digbeth.

    Having toured the globe for the last 8 months she has had time to sharpen up her performance and her nervousness of her first few gigs had disappeared.

    So what was she like to witness live. In a word Stunning. Her performance was both magnetic, ethereal, controlled and masterful. Her voice was extraordinary in its range, ability and strength. I have never witnessed in 40 years anyone who could command your attention with such a powerful intensity.

    Highlights were "Elation" and her encore "Old Peel"

    It was a rather special evening and one I will certainly not forget.
