We are very happy to announce the completion of our first album since 1989 – we think it is the best thing we have done and you will love it!.

Scheduled for release in autumn/winter 2018, we need to pre-sell to cover manufacturing and other costs. To that end we offer both CD and vinyl options, signed if that floats yer boat.

We also have a few other options like: your name on the record sleeve (limited to 50); Pim’s unique Moon guitar, silver disc and archive from backintheday; and Skin’s acoustic guitar, on which much of this album was written.

Skin is also offering to create 10 personally-written lyric books which will have all sorts of weird stuff as well as the lyrics.

There’s also the chance to attend intimate live album performances and playbacks in Glasgow and London where the band will be available for photos, signing and chat.

We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has come to see us in the last year and a half and in advance, those of you buy our new record.

Look out for our live shows in December and keep in the loop with the access pass that comes with any purchase.

Love to you all,

Skin and Pim

This Moon Strat was commissioned in 1986 from Glasgow luthier, Jimmy Moon, who constructed it from scratch. It was my second guitar at the time and it accompanied the band around Europe (including the Eurythmics tour), our US tour of 1987, and to Atlantic studio , NYC, where we recorded Scratch The Surface. It also features in the US video for Ask The Lord.

The guitar shows plenty of history with a through-the-body maple neck, ebony fretboard and Pim inlaid in the headstock in mother-of-pearl.

This instrument represents significant Hipsway history and when it’s gone, it’s gone. This would be the perfect item for the obsessive Hipsway fan!
