Delightful news for the empty-walled folk ~ A Spare Tabby at the Cat's Wedding A3 Poster-prints sets are now available!
Due to (reasonably) popular demand, you can now relive the wondrous, hazy-days of yesteryear (2010/11) and gaze for hours at enlarged and extended idiosyncratic etchings of the confusing record with 3 highly decorative different covers.
Each print measures 30x40cm, is printed on high-quality 200gsm Matt-Silk art paper and will snugly fit within a UK/US A3-size frame.
Signed and numbered by the artist, each set costs a rather reasonable £20.00 (postage & packing included).

The first MWC poster-print collection (from last year) sold out, so do consider a purchase with reasonably swift pondering.
If you'd like a set, maybe to distract friends during an awkward dinner-party or perhaps as a charming gift for a merry ancestor, visit the Village Giftshop at www.blankworkshop.co.uk/page4.htm while stocks, and indeed sanity last.
Oh! A kindly review of 'Somewhere a Fox is Getting Married' has turned up in the August edition of Clash periodical:
You delve inside your handbag and retrieve Almond Talbot's travel-sized Psychophon.
The strange, sweet sounds that issue from this antique device lull the puppet-creature into a swoon-y-state and you skip past into the hallway.
It is dark and very cold here. There are two large windows that look out across the neglected gardens. In the distance you can see a Moontower. The croquet lawn is now full of sunken horses, who observe you with laconic detachment.
Passing in front of a rotting mirror, you decide to quickly change your hair colour.
Midway through choosing which burgundy hue, you pause and notice several figures reflected there that are not within the hallway.
The figures are quite insubstantial, but you can just about make out the features of the nearest one, who resembles an enormous cat.
He calls out 'I saw you, Missis!' and the mirror turns to smoke.
Somewhat taken aback, you must act quickly or risk missing your tea.
Do you have a giant ball of wool?
If you have this item, turn to 5.
If you do not, turn to stone.
A lonely, free hexclusive MP3 has been glued into the Wire magazines most recent 'Under the Radar' online compilation:
Only If you have a subscription may you offer your 'Purred Applause'.
If you have no subscription, have patience.
'Somewhere a Fox is Getting Married' is now available in MP3/FLAC formation hexclusively via Boomkat:
For those that like their music. FOXY.
'An Audience of Art Deco Eyes' is now SOLD OWT. Many thanks indeed to everyone who bought a copy over the last 84 years. It will almost certainly be reissued, but as to what form that will take...
The rumours (?) are TRUTH! An all new total confusion Moon Wiring Club LP is available to pre-order NOW from the Blank Workshop Gift-shop.
Please your home with a HUGE poster of the slightly peculiar and highly detailed cover artwork, & excite your ears with a full-length LP of prime Confusing English Electronic Music in a variety of styles and tempos! It will provide a talking-point for years to come, and remain a cherished souvenir of an event that quite possibly never took place...
It is rather gloomy within the old house. Every room seems to be the wrong shape and full of peculiar carvings.The atmosphere is quite stuffy, with the distinctive, cloying aroma of burnt treacle.
In the corner of the billiard room is a large antique dresser. Slowly dancing upon this are an odd puppet-creature with an unsuitable animal face and a strange purple bird. You are not completely surprised when they both break into a smile and notion at you to sit in one of their dusty armchairs.
Unwrapping a boiled sweet you politely refuse, only too aware that these curiously cavorting creatures are after your teatime invitation card.
After a few moments have passed, the puppet-creature breaks off from his routine, whips out an enormous sandwich from his satchel, and shimmies forward. Somewhat taken aback, you must act quickly or risk spoiling your tea.
Do you have a distracting periodical?
If you have this item, turn to 328.
If you do not, turn to stone.
A lonely, free, MWC MP3 has been hooked onto the notable XXJFG site:
Steer your rented white Range Rover over THERE &'Kindly Cavort'.
Oh! An in-depth most-nonsense interview with something from MWC has kindly been conducted & hosted by FACT Magazine!
It's all most informative.
Oh! The 2nd edition of 'A Spare Tabby at the Cat's Wedding' has now arrived piping-hot from the bakery, and rather lovely it looks too!
We've always been interested in how new editions of novels almost always have a new cover, whereas CD/LPs rarely do, so this is in someways our rationale behind the trickery. It might not make optimum business sense for us to change production in this way, but if you can't derive a little enjoyment from your idiosyncratic working methods, then what's a mischievious temperament for, by Jove?
It's available from the online giftshop NOW and almost certainly from GhostBox & Boomkat within a week or two :)
Oh! Against all expectations the first edition of 'A Spare Tabby at the Cat's Wedding' is now very much sold out on CD! A sincere thankee and doffed hats a-plenty to all those who kindly bought a copy!
For those cursing the maresnest chicanery that caused them to miss out on this delightful item, take comfort in the possibility that there will indeed probably be a Second edition.
In the spirit of 'absence~normality' that we are stuck upon, it will have a different cover.
LO-RES TEASER IMAGE HERE:
The music contained will be the very much same.
Due at the end of February 1911, all being. WELL! Oh!
A really rather charming review of 'A Spare Tabby at the Cat's Wedding' from the February edition of the Wire periodical:
YES. Oh! T'Club will be trapped in Oxford for one night lonely on Friday 28th January.
If you are also trapped in Oxford, manifest yourself to the Art Modern Gallery (from about 7ish), cough-up £3 (literally) and you can WITNESS:
TOP Resonance FM Stalwart the Time Attendant coaxing spooky drones from a variety of musical devices, while a murky 8bit landscape meanders along in the background!
There will be a short recovery period.
THEN! Hold on to something/somebody as you enter the intense-swirly B/W dreamscape of Winter Sun Wavelengths, a Ghost Box film by Julian House with Soundtrack by Belbury Poly and the Focus Group!
There will be a short recovery period.
For those still unconscious, the Moon Wiring Club will then totally STEP UP (sitting down) to perform their almost-professional 31min live set, to the accompaniment of some rather peculiar, long-forgotten video clips spliced together via arcane methods. Expect sluggish fizz-pop-hip-hop-rhythms, sinister occurrences, gloopy interludes and references to tea.
There will be no recovery. Period.

We are delighted to announce that there will almost certainly be a new Moon Wiring Club album released in November, 1587.

29/12/09: A delightful review of 'Striped Paint for the Last Post' extracted from the January edition of the Wire periodical:
13/12/09: In the spirit of a cartoon feature before the main film, the Moon Wiring Club did indeed support Broadcast, and what a delightful evening it turned out to be. Here are some mildly doctored low-quality video pictures:
30/11/09: Shhh! Don't tell anyone, but MWC might well be supporting BROADCAST for a potentially adequate one-off performance in Manchester next Tuesday (8th December).
It's at somewhere called the Deaf Institute. There should be a visual accompaniment of shoddy tv-clips from yesteryear.
23/11/09: Have a Lovely Day, the new Moon Wiring Club CD is here!
Additionally, the kindly and not-at-all sinister vicar of Belbury, has provided a delightful and most unexpected sermon upon the delights of 'Striped Paint for the Last Post'.

If nothing else, the additional performers of the evening; 'Timmy' Attendo, Dr. David 'Dolly Doll' Davidson, and the highly esteemed headlining 'Seal-land' should provide suitable recompense for any expenditure the evening may entail.
For those planning a seasonal holiday to Clinkskell, please be aware that 'The Lost Railway of the North' has been considered the wisest choice for travel. Do not attempt to journey by car. Country bus services may be subject to change in the near future.

You can expect to hear all manner of musical oddments, including library music, television themes and half-remembered soundbites and voices from vintage television. Much of it very badly-recorded, and all the better for it.
You can listen/download it here:
We recommend downloading it, transferring to a C60 cassette (BASF Chrome, if you have them handy) then using as an ideal accompaniment to an extended breakfast or evening meal.
