The new album from The Focus Group, The Elektrik Karousel is due for release on 10th May, but you can pre-order it right now in the Ghost Box Shop.

This is the first Ghost Box release to feature  redesigned CD packaging and this first edition comes in a highly desirable 8 panel digi pack designed by Julian House.

The design is inspired by 1960s underground press and is conceived as a kind of mind altering DIY board game.

Old Red Lion Theatre, Islington

Dick runs a ghost tour, and he’s got a great story to tell. It’s the one they all go home talking about. The headliner. It’s about a Ragged School in old York. About something terrible buried beneath the cobbles. It’s about the past. It’s about ghosts. And it’s about to catch up with him.

A new play by Stewart Pringle, writer of As Ye Sow.

Director - Jeffrey Mayhew
Producer - George Warren
Starring - Tom Richards

For a while now Shindig magazine has been a big seller in the Belbury Newsagents, so excitement here is rather high as this month editor, Jon "Mojo" Mills has the vision and generosity to open the broad doors of  his psychedelic church to Broadcast, Ghost Box and a wealth of influences that feed into their worlds.
Thomas Patterson interviews James Cargill for an astounding and sensitive feature on Broadcast, illustrated by Julian House.  Occasional Belbury Poly plank spanker, Christopher Budd talks to Messrs Jupp and House for a profile of Ghost Box Records. There's a a history of The Children's Film foundation and a fantastic primer on the world of the Italian giallo film illustrated with another great piece of House artwork. As if that weren't enough  there's a profile of the ISB's Mike Heron, Mark Brend on White Noise and a piece on new ager's Emerald Web in the run up to a Finders Keepers compilation.
Its hard to imagine any other publication that will be of more interest to members of this Parish right now, so get yours here or at these stockists.
