The limited edition Leader of the Starry Skies – A Loyal Companion is now sold out. For those who were too slow to pick up a copy, you can now hear the Bug Prentice contribution right here:

Bug Prentice – My Trademark

The main album, Leader of the Starry Skies – A Tribute to Tim Smith: Songbook 1, is now on its second pressing and still very much available. A double-LP on 180g vinyl is up for pre-order now, and will be released on April 18th. Steven Wilson and Oceansize will also release their contributions as a double A-sided single for this year’s Record Store Day.

Proceeds from all of these sales go towards Cardiacs frontman Tim Smith, who suffered a severe stroke in 2008. His care has already been greatly improved by the money raised. Long may it continue.
