Someone, somewhere, sent me an email on behalf of a company called Burger Records about a band from the 1970s that's releasing a 7" vinyl single of two songs that were recorded in the 70's but never released until now. On vinyl.
(I feel I must warn you about the Burger Records website. If you go there, be prepared for the blinding colour scheme. It's red and orange, and I couldn't look at it for more than a few seconds.)
This is part of the email I received:
THIS IS BURGER RECORDS!
We thought you might be interested in our newest release, it's...

Although I didn't enjoy the song much, they took the trouble to let me know about it, so I'm happy to let you know about it. Enjoy! (Maybe.)
