Turning the Tables

photoPROOFS : GO ROYALS – Greetings Earthlings (or Terran if you prefer). looks like there actually will be a vinyl version of LOST BEES after all. i had given up hope of ever laying hands on a copy but it’s gonna happen. apparently starting GO ROYALS a vinyl factory is the biz to be in by the back log they’ve got stacked up. i chose the wrong side of the biz. me thinks. GO ROYALS
