Janet Leigh, Please Pick Up A White Courtesy Phone

This is Shower Scene, from Saint Etienne’s Finisterre, which I reviewed back when it came out.

So here’s a puzzle: Tales From Turnpike House, the latest St. Etienne long-player, is available on the UK iTunes Store, but isn’t available in the US iTunes store, even though there doesn’t appear to be any movement on any front to have this disc released on this side of the Atlantic. It’d seem to me that releasing something like this on iTunes would be a cheap and easy way to determine if there’s a market for it…

(as a side note, people who bought Tales From Turnpike House from iTunes also bought The Feynman Lectures on Physics, The Very Best of Edith Piaf, and a live album by Los de Abajo, a Mexican poli-punk band…)
