The Central Office of Information is presented as a sublime package. A misplaced communiqué from a shadowy department, the packaging playfully acknowledges the mystery inherent within the concept.
With an incredibly strong logo and artwork from the hugely in demand Nick Taylor at Spectral Studio, the hand numbered CD is housed in an extravagant printed manilla string and washer envelope with concomitant faux-photocopied sheets, puzzling hand-stamped inserts and lost/recovered ephemera - all playing to idea that this is a glimpse of something fallen between the cracks that you shouldn’t have access to. No two copies are the same.
It’s hugely effective and provides the ideal setting for Alex’s fantastically dry and knowing soundtrack.
The package also includes a sticker, badge and download card.
Includes unlimited streaming of The Central Office of Information
via the free Bandcamp app, plus high-quality download in MP3, FLAC and more.

What can I say? Every track a hauntological winner - evoking the burn of the cathode ray into the back of your eyes whilst gawping at ropey daytime programmes for schools and colleges whilst off 'sick' from school in 1978. Just get it! Kites and pylons
