Chain of Aussie chocolate/lolly stores. They sell damn good licorice.

On a different note, two weeks until the new special edition of Lightbulb Sun arrives.

I'm assuming they are named after a specific person then.

Presumably its confectionery-making founder.

Oooh.

I wish it had some cool unreleased stuff, though.

At the PT store, if you bought the special edition there, they gave you a bonus CD with two rare items: a song called "Novak" which had never been on CD before, and the instrumental take of "Buying New Soul", clocking in at over 14 minutes and including roughly four minutes of previously unheard music.

Because the U.S. dollar sucks, it wasn't worth it for me to spend that much more money for just two songs, so I didn't bother. I'll get the regular 2CD set in the local store for cheap, and then just find those two songs online somewhere. I'm really curious to hear that instrumental.

Good luck. The light at the end of the tunnel awaits.

I have an MP3 of Novak, evidently sourced from vinyl. As for the instrumental Buying New Soul, I must admit I'm skeptical, as I think it's the vocals - both melody and delivery - that really carry that song.

Oh, I agree, but I'm interested in what the extra music sounds like.

Yeah, me too - I'm just skeptical that it will be anything of sufficient interest to make me return to it after the first listen.

That's probably the case, which was why it wasn't worth the extra money to me.

I'm looking forward to at least downloading it, though. Buying New Soul is my favourite on Recordings, with the exception of the full version of Even Less.
