Kickstarter : Psyence Fiction deluxe edition update
It looks like James Lavelle and DJ Shadow started working on the most sought-after Mo’ Wax Urban Archaeology reward.
I’ve posted an open letter to James Lavelle about that issue : https://www.mowaxplease.com/dear-james-lavelle/
OK, I haven’t posted here for a while for some reasons, but here is a little event in the Mo’ Wax world, and it has nothing to do with tees, jackets or sneakers.
After months of silence, a Kickstarter update has just been posted!
The first one since the 22th of August 2014 – if we except the irritating newsletter about the Saatchi exhibition – despite the protestations of a lot of backers.
Indeed, we are still waiting for the UNKLE’s Psyence Fiction deluxe edition, including a exclusive 7″ picture disc, and signed by James Lavelle, which was one of the more interesting rewards of the campaign.
Here is the so-called update, and let me say straight away that I’m not exactly happy with it.
I want to thank you for what was an amazing year last year and your contribution to helping the Mowax book and Meltdown exhibition be such a success. I wanted to write to you to apologise for the fact that Psyence Fiction still has not been released. Due to the overwhelming amount of work that went in to Meltdown, the book and various exhibitions, Psyence Fiction had to be put back. I am now working with DJ Shadow on compiling what I think will be the ultimate edition. On a positive note, due to the process of going through the archive for the past year and a half it has allowed myself to unearth great unreleased never before seen material to create what I hope will be the ultimate package. We will be unveiling release plans over the next couple of months. I really really appreciate your understanding and patience. I can’t wait to share the various things we have coming up this year. Thank you for your continued support.
So, what do we have here? In my opinion we have nothing. Nothing new. Just apologies and useless infos.
Is it great news that James Lavelle has “unearthed great unreleased never before seen material”? No. Because we have signed and paid for that, it was one of the highlights of the Mo’ Wax Urban Archaeology Kickstarter campaign, and that is what we all expect, isn’t it?
“We will be unveiling release plans over the next couple of months.”
OK so in a few months we will know what will be released in the further months.
Prepare yourself to wait a bit more.
