Cop a load of this:

"There now follows a special announcement from THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN

It is with great pride that we are able to share with you the first grumbling evidence of the stalled machinery surrounding CARDIACS beginning to twitch and stumble into life before your loyal but sometimes, one might say, disbelieving eyes.

We therefore take this timely opportunity to announce that from this day forwards CARDIACS recorded material will begin to be made available for purchase in its entirety from ITUNES, a well known online retail outlet of repute.

The uploading of the complete back catalogue of albums has begun and soon will be complete.

We consequently must INSIST that you avail yourselves of this convenience and make full use of the following electrophonic code sequential address at your earliest promptitude.

Click here to open iTunes
(requires iTunes installed on your computer)

Alternatively if you have iTunes simply select iTunes Store and search for “Cardiacs”

With regard to the non availability of goods and the future of merchandise direct from THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN by way of our official web site, let us attempt to quell your fears.

The online merchandising arrangements will soon be back in place. This will be of great relief to those eager to fill their greedy fists with our considerable range of quality goods and merchandising items, and we anticipate its return well in time for the festive period.

The reasons for the removal of this facility over the past months is of no concern to you.

Yet suffice it to say that once certain accountancy issues have been addressed, it will be only a short while until normal service is resumed.

THE ALPHABET BUSINESS CONCERN thanks you for your patience in this matter and looks forward to once again delivering the exemplary service to which you had become accustomed.

With Respect"

Good news indeed for those who have yet to experience this incomparable band due to the unavailability of their albums. Personally, I'm holding out for the official shop reopening so I can finally replace my ill-gotten mp3s with shiny, legitimate discs, but for the curious toe-dippers amongst us I heartily recommend grabbing a few tasty morsels via iTunes. Hooray!

Good news.
But I would enjoy to get a physical object from them, especially a DVD from their '84 VHS.

Are these DRM-free and 256kbs? I can't tell from the iTunes display but they've shifted everything around when I wasn't looking. If they aren't, no dice.

Of course that is what I would prefer, but 256 is acceptable. 128 is not and it's a travesty that iTunes has been selling them for $9.99 for so long.
