05/05/10 - R.I.P. Platipus Records

Bit of a late one this. 'As of March 9th 2010, Platipus has ceased trading'.
Well, that's terrible news. For a label like Platipus who focus largely on the trancier end of dance stuff to get behind the very leftfield bizarre MPB albums so enthusiastically showed their decency, and the amount of information Rich sent me personally or gave to our forums showed his understanding of the importance of fans. It's a real shame to see a label of such integrity closing down.
This, of course, draws into question where Gaz and Brian are going to release the forthcoming Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble mix CDs, and what will happen to the remaining stock of the two available editions. We're hoping they don't go out of print!

And, typically, the second volume of A Monstrous Psychedelic Bubble, 'Pagan Love Vibrations', has just been nominated for a Mojo award for compilation of the year. Winner will be announced on June 10th.
