Digital Manipulation, and the previous two FourPlay albums, are distributed independently by Vitamin Records, a distribution company set up around FourPlay's independent distribution network, which was created by the band to distribute the first two albums. Artists such as Chris Abrahams from the Necks and David Lane are also distributed by Vitamin. You can call Oliver or Peter (that's me!) at the Vitamin office between 10am and 6pm most days, on +61 2 9252 5446. If you're an Australian store wanting to stock our albums, this is the best way. Otherwise:
You can always purchase FourPlay CDs online from Chaos Music, from anywhere in the world.
Online, for Australian and o/s electronica like Digital Manipulation, an excellent new place to purchase is Sub:Strata. These guys are highly deserving of your support. Go to it!
