Extra copies of promo pressed to beat bootleg cash-in on Guiness ad...
Leftfield have pressed up an additional 2000 copies of ‘Phat Planet’ – currently being used in the current Guinness advertising campaign – because bootleggers have started circulating illegal 12″ vinyl copies.
“We just pressed up a few copies for the clubs,” said Leftfield‘s Neil Barnes. “Now everyone seems to be talking about the track and the advert. Pity about the bootlegs but it’s great to be back.”
‘Phat Planet’ will actually be the b-side of Leftfield‘s first new single proper ‘Afrika Shox’, released on August 23, though the promos will be in the shops this week.
The band’s long awaited second album is out on September 6.
