Vinyl or CD the age old debate essays

A number of records have been circulating since late 2005 claiming to be represses of older B12 releases

We have not repressed any of the older releases. These records are illegal bootlegs, and not mastered from the original plates - they are most likely ripped from CD or mp3, or even recorded from the old vinyl onto CDR.

You can check if the vinyl you have is genuine - all B12 releases have messages etched into the run-out grooves. Also, the bootlegs often have a poor quality label print and tinny/trebley sound.

There are still some shops shamelessly still buying and selling these, claiming that 'we thought they were real' even though they came from a dodgy bloke who turned up in the shop, rather than from our distributors , and also ebay sellers claiming to have the originals - so CHECK BEFORE YOU BUY!

If you see any shops selling what they claim to be old stock or 'repressings' - please let us know!!!

We will be making the old material available again - the back catalogue has been completely re-mastered, and will be released on a 12 disc CD box set later this year, with bonus remixes and unreleased tracks. So if you're looking for old B12 - please be patient and get the genuine article!

Remember - the Truth is in the Run-out Grooves
