Remember those nice stamps which were put into circulation t'other week? The ones of classic album covers, which included Pink Floyd, Primal Scream, Blur, The Clash, New Order and a few others. Yeah, those ones. Ol' Jimmy P from Led Zep is up ^there^ posing with 'em.
To celebrate this wonderful development, we're giving away a whole HANDFUL (and then some) of great prizes, including the following:
- First and foremost, we have a signed copy of New Order's 1983 album, Power, Corruption & Lies for one lucky winner
- A signed CD copy of Screamadelica, by Primal Scream, of course
- A collection of all of those album cover stamps
- Double CD remastered edition of the aforementioned Power, Corruption & Lies
- New Order Live in Glasgow DVD
- Primal Scream Riot City Blues Tour DVD
- Framed Screamadelica album art
Which is a pretty exhaustive list. We certainly don't give stuff as wholesome as this away every day. So, you'd wanna win those things, right? Well, all you have to do to be in with a chance of winning is answer the below question in the comments section below. You'll need to be signed-up to the site to do so, though.
