Ok, I'll admit, I was sceptical. 

Having grown up during the digital revolution, I was sure that vinyl was finished: an obsolete technology. Initially I had little enthusiasm for pressing 'Fairchildren'. 

And then I heard it! Now it's my most favourite thing ever!

I didn't expect to love vinyl for its sound, with its static, distortions and dust, but having spent nearly two years hearing nothing but 'Fairchildren' in its digital form, hearing it on vinyl for the first time was revelatory. 

I realised I hadn't actually listened to a vinyl record in 25 years [the last vinyl album I bought was 'Nevermind' by Nirvana when it first came out] and the subjective quality of the sound took me by surprise. Contrary to my initial suspicions, the vinyl renaissance is built on sound sonic principles, not just nostalgic hipster bullshit.

Mastering and disc cutting is being handled by Kevin Metcalfe at The Soundmasters, London, who mastered the original CD version. He's been cutting vinyl masters since I was a toddler. He's very good at it.

The artwork has been completely rebuilt from the ground up, starting from a much higher resolution scan of the original pencil drawings, and then hand coloured by Daniel Philosoph, the original artist. 

He's chosen brighter colours and shinier textures for the vinyl version and at 300mm x 300mm it looks incredible. 

We will be creating a strictly limited edition A2-sized poster of the artwork, featuring the names of all top-tier pledgers which will be available only to them. They will also get their names on the inside of the album sleeve with a special credit thanking them for their amazingness. 

Or you can just have a copy of the record, signed or unsigned. Your choice.

I can't wait to add 'Mir' to my vinyl collection. Once this one is done we're going to make a start on 'Skylon'. And then 'Blumenkraft'. And then a big, loud, 45rpm 12" EP cut of 'Baby' Robot and 'Mr Balloon Hands'.

Happy pledging and thanks for your continued support.

Risks and challenges

The 'Fairchildren' release went smoothly so I don't anticipate any issues with this one.

We'll just do the same as we did last time.
