It’s no secret that Warp fans have been wanting to get their hands on the vinyl issue of The Other People Place‘s infamous LP Lifestyles of The Laptop Café. A petition to re-issue the 2001 Warp Records classic was launched in 2015 following incredibly high prices on Discogs – at the time (June 2015) the highest price in the marketplace was a whopping €25,000. 
  

For the 1,167 supporters, the campaign was short of just 333 signatures to make a difference. But perhaps Warp did listen to “the people”… over a year later, the label has today announced that a re-issue of the double vinyl edition is available for pre-order on Bleep.com, hitting the stores as of February 10, 2017 (unfortunate news for the handful of secondhand sellers on Discogs…). 

Merry Christmas!
