Availability  Singles & EPs  LPs  CDs  Cassettes  Odds 'n' Sods

As of June 2001, the situation is roughly as follows: Astronauts vinyl is getting harder to find, you should reckon on looking in specialist shops and paying high prices. The only exception to this is 'In Defence Of Compassion'; a few copies of which are still available, details available by email. You can try Dizzy Positivity for 'Up Front and Sideways' (no recent info), but the other tapes are all long gone. The situation should be better for CDs - the first two albums and You're All Weird should still be available. Try contacting either the record companies or distributors given below. If there's other stuff you're after either contact us or look here again from time to time - the situation may improve. Also, if you join the mailing list you'll be kept up to date. You can also try the Acid Stings web site to see if they have anything available.
