Everyone's favourite "fourteen-legged abortion" Los Campesinos! have announced a neat-o 'record box' competition giveway.
What they're giving away is a tour record box, filled with records from the bands they play with on the tour, and one from a local record shop from each of the cities they visit. Maybe even some flatbread, too.
Gareth does the 'splainin' here, in a Malta football shirt?
The comeptition hasn't YET been announced, but stay tuned to their official website and blog for updates when the competition and winners are announced, as well as whatever sort of stuff they'll be chucking into the box.
