Thanks Jane. 
Jim said he'd 'try' to do a physical release if I get 100 names. It was an off the cuff comment and part of me thought he was just joking so I thought I'd call his bluff and give it a shot. 
If this comes off, I'm going to petition for a release of the Overflow Tank rejects. I doubt they'd ever get a physical release but maybe digital. 

I still refuse to pay for downloads. They don't look as good sitting on my CD Shelves. (I'd buck that trend if he released the ones that got away from the boxset).

Thanks everyone for your support of this petition. Thanks also to Stephen (Koala Sprint) for getting it off the ground. We have nearly reached our goal, just 23 more signatures are required, so we are close, really close. If you haven't already signed here's how: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/underthemotherlandsflag

And if you know someone who might be interested, give 'em a nudge.

Jim is aware of the petition and how well it is doing.  He is also supportive of the whole process. Fingers crossed we reach our goal and get that CD in our hands.

Cheers, Jane

Update on the petition for a physical release of Jim Moginie’s EP ‘Under the Motherland’s Flag’.

The petition is currently at the halfway point. It needs 50 more signatures to get it over the line.

If the petition is successful, this CD release will be a limited collector’s edition. It will also provide detailed liner notes, and a tactile connection to the music that so many of us miss. If you have already signed, thank you. Please spread the word.

Sign the petition here: https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/underthemotherlandsflag

I just signed a petition at iPetitions.com. Please join me in supporting this important cause!

And while you are at it, head on over to https://jimmoginie.bandcamp.com/ to purchase

‘The Night Garden’ Jim and Howlin’ Winds new release and follow up to 2004’s ‘The Blessing’.
