Had been after these MANIC STREET PREACHERS tracks for ages, was it worth the wait? I dunno, not really if compared to Send Away The Tigers, but yes if you love the Manics. Here's some background on it's release:
The EP was created as a gift to fans who went to the final concert of their "Past/Present/Future Tour" at the Hammersmith Apollo in London on April 19th 2005.
There were problems with the promotion, however, as staff at the Hammersmith Apollo left boxes full of the EPs by the entrance doors, with none actually handed out. Many fans were confused as to whether the 3000 copies of available EPs would be given before or after the gig, whereas some simply stole armfuls. To make up for the Apollo staff's mistake, the band posted the EP on their website as a free download for those who were not able to receive a copy.
Copies of the CD were also available for free on a first come, first serve basis to fans on the band's mailing list who sent in a SAE to an address supplied in an email newsletter.
