Thought Forms - Something About Bee's Cos They're Important CD

The band have kindly given the webshop an amount of the amazing HANDMADE tour cd that was on sale at the album launch party in Bristol and the East Coast U.S shows a month or so ago.

The music consists of 5 tracks - 2 brand new / 3 live.

This isn't some cheap dispensable CD project - the music was mastered at Optimum Mastering in Bristol in a 5 hr session and the packaging on each cd has been lovingly individually hand made by the band members themselves. Each CD is numbered and NO two cds look the same.

These copies are from the 1st batch (30 copies)
