cst cst cst cst innit!

October 25, 2005

This has already been posted to my livejournal and myspace today, so if you stalk me (or are just really fond of me) you may have already seen this, if not please read on.

Please buy Circle. Square. Triangle by Test Icicles now! It's #25 in the Tuesday midweeks at the moment with 1,256 sales but I'm sure we can do better than that; Arctic Monkeys didn't have an MC Lars remix on their single after all.

buy
physical: hmv | pure groove | amazon digital: karma download | itunes

But remember: if you buy from itunes make sure you rip out the restricting (and in my opinion illegal) DRM by burning the track to a CD and then ripping it back into itunes.

edit: The single is now #24 in the chart (1,907 sales)! Not a great leap forward, but at least they're now above Rifles, which is great. Still two places below Will Smith though, come on guys!

edit: Right, this isn't good enough. Today (Wednesday) they are still at #24 with 2,625 sales. The main problem it seems is digital sales (with only 125 of them) - remember that downloads count towards 39% of the chart so this needs to be higher - so please, if you haven't already, click one of the download links above and buy the single. Both iTunes and Karma Download count directly towards the chart, so go, go, go!

edit: As of Thursday's midweeks they're still at #24, now with 3,100 sales (of which still only 186 are downloads!)... So there's still a lot of work to be done guys, vote for good music with your cash and your iTunes accounts, or as they themselves put it themselves in a MySpace bulletin yesterday, "help us keep it at 24 and not drop to number 3,000,000 like last time!!" Don't let it happen.

edit: I haven't got the chart update for today as I'm away from work, but today was the most important day for Testies to hold onto their good chart space. Let's hope the stay in the top 20/30. Good luck for tomorrow...

I like the extended James Ford remix. He's such a busy guy-working with Good Shoes now!
