    Voila! Immediate download of 'On The Use of Jackboots' in your choice of 320k mp3, FLAC, or just about any other format you could possibly desire.

    The tracks from 'On The Use of Jackboots' are still available for as little as *zero* of Her Majesty's finest pennies, but we would love you to show your appreciation by sparing a little loose change - you can set your own price in the box. But please, while every little helps, remember that we have to pay PayPal transaction fees on everything we sell for money, so we humbly request that if you would like to pay for our work, that you give us a minimum of £0.50p / $0.70 per track (or £4.00 / $8.00 for the album) - otherwise we might end up paying out of our own pockets.

    Thanks for supporting kickass independent music!

    Hugs and kisses,

"Al Baker is...possessed with urgency and a righteous anger, but manages to distil it into a collection of upbeat and spiky originals...vibrant, intense and most welcome" - Rock 'n' Reel Magazine
