NEW: LEAST WORST DVD
There's a new DVD just out: "The Very Least Worst of Robin Ince", a compilation of all kinds of thoughts that never made it on tour, including the likes of Edinburgh gigs over the years. There's some technical trickery which means every time you play the disc, the 23 chapters change order, and lucky customers might get a copy with a completely different title on the sleeve and disc! More details over at www.gofasterstripe.com.
