From the 24th of November T&M started auctioning clear vinyl promo copies of Too Much Reality and pink vinyl copies of A Blast In Belfast.
On the 19th the following news story appeared on the T&M homepage.
CHARLIE HARPER & CAPTAIN SENSIBLE E.P. VINYL REPRESS SELLS OUT IN 24 HOURS
The third and final pressing of Too Much Reality has sold out and is now only available on the merch desk at U.K.Subs and The Damned gigs. Thank you to everyone who bought a copy.
As with the first pressing though, we are auctioing PROMO copies on Ebay with all the proceeds going to our current charitable cause, the RNLI
The first lot of PROMOS raised £500 and we are hoping that the latest copies will make a healthy addition to that total.
We are also auctioning 7 pink vinyl copies of U.K.Subs - A Blast In Belfast on Punkerama Records.
These were very generously donated by Gary for us to sell and were all individually autographed by Charlie Harper at the bands Hinckley gig on the 23rd of November this year.
