jsntgm 034 Higgins + The Magic of the Marketplace – Dream Consumer Dream 12” vinyl (clear yellow) and CD

This is a record of 11 of 53 songs written and recorded by Andy Higgins in 2018 – will the other 42 ever see the light of day – – possibly not. So far it has received one review which summarises it below. Comes with poster and lyric sheet to help solve the puzzle on the album cover and rear. Andy Higgins is a doofer, he has his hands in many pies and is a ruddy amiable chap – I like that! He is primarily part of that advancing 3-piece known as Litterbug, a very underestimated band that are on

TBH the prospect of printing off and hoiking around hundreds of copies to
