Welcome to the latest Squire Fan Club Newsletter, and to all the new members who signed up for the weekly email! Firstly, we are excited to announce that the latest single 'No Time Tomorrow' b/w 'Don't Cry To Me' due for release on 11th December, arrived in stock on Tuesday 1st December, much earlier than expected and if you pre-ordered, you should have received your records this week, or if overseas - they are on the way! There are still some copies in stock for those who want to buy themselves a special Christmas present, available in Santa Claus Red and Poinsettia Pink!
We are keeping the newsletter short because as promised last week, we are running a special competition for Squire Fan Club members, those of you who are subscribed to the mailing list here. So if you enjoy reading these newsletters but come direct, or follow a link through Facebook or Bandcamp etc. we encourage you to join the mailing list as this is the key to joining in with special competitions, receiving news first, getting 'first dibs' on limited edition issues, special merch and rare stuff that you might otherwise miss!
So the competition question is:
Q. Last weeks newsletter talked about the recording session and the different sounds, from Beethoven to backwards guitar that go to create the sonic soundscape of 'No Time Tomorrow'. There is another key instrument featured on 'No Time Tomorrow' and is also played on 'Don't Cry To Me' that wasn't mentioned... What is it and what is the name of the instrument that made the sound??
Please email your answers to firstname.lastname@example.org with Competition in the Subject line, and we will pick a winner on Saturday 12th December. Chanel is already rehearsing for the big prize draw, and you can see who wins live on screen next week!
The prize is a White Label copy of the 'No Time Tomorrow' single! We had so many responses from the last competition that we realise how sought after this item is! White labels are very special hand pressed editions of the record. Only a few are made and they are used to check the quality of the 'cut' before approving for final manufacture. They weigh 75-80 grams compared to normal vinyl single 40-50 grams, are of the highest quality and fidelity, and very hard to come by. Hence they are the ultimate prized possession of avid record collectors!
