2011-04-20 23:21:02   FACEBOOK NEWS FROM DEGVILLE:
 
"Flaunt It - electronic version - is ready for official release. All songs have been digitally remastered and remixed + includes bonus tracks Ultra Violence and Sci-Fi Lover It will be available at the Purple Turtle gig in London on April 28th and online the day after. Hard copy is full jewel case and shrink wrapped directly from the manufacturer!"
 
I guess this will be the first mastered and factory pressed Sputnik release in 8 years (since "Grooving with Mr. Pervert"[2003] released by X/TJ right after the split. Minus compilations and unofficial releases.)
 
I'm sure that Degz and Lloyd have created a monster of an album. The pre-release rocked like hell.
