hi Steve - sorry I just saw this - working on it ! the workshops helped a LOT - but also inserted a few months of crazy travel into everything. I'm working with my team here to scan and layout while I write and think and write - there'll be another update shortly!

Thanks for this project Martin. I'll never forget the 1st time I saw you play live on the 1990/1 UK tour with Killing Joke. Especially the spitting out of water during your awesome turbo charged fill on the song 'Extremities' - so cool. Any memorabilia from that KJ tour going up on Pledge? Please come to Winchester UK, or somewhere near!

I can't find a pre-order/pledge option for a physical book alone...
There IS a plan for a physical book, right? And not just the various audio & digital versions i see mentioned here? I appreciate the wide array of media formats and extraneous perks being offered, but i'm afraid that i'm both irreparably old-school and somewhat debilitatingly poor.
Is there an option somewhere to simply pledge/preorder the physical printed book alone? Or is there some other plan in the works for selling & distributing the printed book by more conventional means after the pledgemusic campaign has been successfully completed?
Am i missing something? Thanks in advance for any clarification. I'm fairly new to these pledgemusic-style platforms, and frankly, they confuse the hell out of me more often than not. So please just try to imagine that i'm just kindda vey ptematurely elderly, and accordingly, prematurely befuddled by all things newfangled. And try to humor my ignorance as patiently as you might that of an actual, chronologically elderly clueless old codger. And in return, i might ad a generous supply of Peperidge Farms milano cookies and Werther's Originals to my pledge...

wot - no cymbals ! maybe it was a frequency thing?? I know at one point we uses an aerosol spray instead of a hi hat! I don't know what happened to the Rodgers kit - after I left I received an endorsement (the first and the longest!) with Pearl Drums....and I love those black drums !! sorry this took a while i forgot this button was here !

Can you tell me why the postage and packing price for the book and two passes is over $25 yet the postage for the book by itself is $9?? Surely the two passes wouldn't add an extra $16 to the cost.

Hey Martin, how about the chance to grab one of your PIL soundboard recordings?????? C'mon - you knew I was gonna ask (beg) - again

Ha sorry !

Steve Lodge commented

p&p to UK is a bitch, but it always is for non EU purchases, this is outside of Martin's control, but if the product is as amazing as I hope and the content is well written, well thought out & and indepth I personally dont care. I've waited a long time for Martin to GTFOB & tell his stories. This is a must for PIL fans imho.
