A story– I (Ben) am terrible at everything involving money and when AG came out and we made the vinyl, we lost something like $10 for every record we sold. it was a disaster and directly tied into our need to run that kickstarter campaign for Sea When Absent and the fact that we haven’t been able to make it back to Europe in a while. It also lead to a written-in-stone law of ASDiG– NO DOUBLE LPs, EVER. It’s funny thinking about it now, how I thought that no one would pay $30 or whatever we would have had to sell it for to break even. Since the vinyl sold out in December 2009, MANY people have come up to us at shows asking us to sign their copy of AG which they bought for $200 – $400 from ebay/discogs/wherever. Frankly, that is heartbreaking for everyone. It is my firm belief that no record should cost that much. We sincerely hope we never hear anyone say that again.

ASDiG SOCKS, seriously, get them here https://bakdrop.com/products/asunnydayinglasgow
One of the best emails we’ve ever received came a few months ago and had the subject line, “A Sunny Day in Glasgow Socks Opportunity”. Socks opportunity! How intriguing. I have truly always wanted socks with the ASDiG cloud printed on them and now someone has made my dream come true. I’ve bought 3 pairs.
WE ARE MAKING A NEW RECORD
If you read the interview at the link to the AG reissue, you’ll note that we are heading to Texas, to a ridiculous studio, in a couple of months to make a record. We’ve really upped the ante here, so this will either be incredible or a complete disaster. Never boring though. We are excited and hope that you are excited. Let’s be excited.
