Well, if yesterday's clue wasn't over-obvious enough, let's make this official:
SCNTFC'S MOON GROTTO 7" IS NOW PUBLICLY AVAILABLE ON VINYL & DOWNLOADABLE MP3
In addition to the Kickstarter-exclusive "bright moon" edition (& crazy rare "pink moons"), Scntfc has become the sole distributor of a limited number of "dark moon" editions of the 7", available now via his Bandcamp page for $10 only (plus shipping & handling). You can also just get the digital edition of the record for as little as $2 and take it for a walk in the woods.
It's also very worthy of note that in addition to making his landmark Saints of Infinity record (the indirect reason the whole Superbrothers + Scntfc + Venus Patrol collaboration would come about) available for a name-your-price download, he's just dug up some long-out-of-print vinyl editions of Saints, as well as a handful of copies of the vinyl+poster edition of Tubes -- a soundtrack to a short by the supremely talented designer & animator Nando Costa (who you may have spotted right here on Kickstarter not too long ago).
Please enjoy the Moon Grotto video above if you haven't already, and I'll leave you with a number of gatefold-glamour-shots taken by Scntfc below!
KEEP ON DIGGING.
