    "It is with regret that the Legendary Pink Dots and Edward Ka-Spel feel that is now necessary to make it public that we have severed all ties with World Serpent Distribution.

    WSD last accounted to the band over a year ago , and made one partial payment under duress last August. While we appreciate that everybody involved in 'independent' music is experiencing difficulties in a financially unstable climate, WSD's failure to answer even the politest question is simply unforgivable.

    Plans are already underway for the reissue of Chemical Playschool Volumes 8/9 ,with the other two titles on the World Serpent roster to follow later this year.

    In the meantime we do request distributors, shops and individuals not to buy our titles directly from WSD."
