Merchandise - part 2

Sorry for the delay - there's lots going on. Lots of exciting things that we can tell you about very soon, but we can't tell you just yet.

Anyhow, I can tell you about lanyards. Lanyards are the things that go round your neck to which you attach your ID badge at work. More specifically, I can tell you about Amateur Transplants lanyards.

Following a flippant post about producing some merchandise there seemed to be some genuine interest in buying branded products. We're testing the water with these Paracetamoxy-lanyards.

They're actually really lovely - have a look. Even better, buy a couple - two for a fiver. Amateur Shop.

Is that a dirty hospital pillowcase you are using as a backdrop?

what a great idea! sad I know but from health and safety point of view do they have the breakable bit on them to stop patients/pissed off GPs from choking you?

Adam said...

Yes - they have the built-in anti-murder device.

Is the anti-murder device good for non-choking related murder attempts? Cos if so it's one bloody brilliant lanyard!

Ordered a pair - AT merchandise would seem to be a not-unreasonable idea...so what's next (and when's the album coming out?)

On the Amateur Transplants page on facebook, 'Unfit to Practice' is listed as being due out on August 1st- don't know if this is true or not!

These look fantastic! Wonder whether my boss will share my sense of humour and let me wear one? Hmmm...

Alas i already spent all my hard earned money on a flight to London and a ticket for a wacky show at The Bedford next monday *rolleyes*

Have you managed to misspell your own made up drug? Or is that just pedantry?

Seriously guys, according to London Stansted Airport security, this lanyard is a dangerous weapon!
I bought one last night at the show and on my way back to germany in the morning i had my hand baggage examined for at least 20 minutes because of it.
Ok, apparently there was some other shit in it that they didn't want on board, but the lanyard definitely made them really suspicious and the security guy took a very close look at it.....it might have been envy though ;)

Btw, many thanks to Mark for not shouting out loud that i'm from "Homosexual Cannibal Land" when the second support guy (sorry, i didn't get his name but he was very funny!) asked if anyone in the audience came from abroad.

Anyway, the show was totally awesome and getting stuck in airport security and almost missing the flight back home seemed only half as bad after that night ;)

P.S: What about releasing a live CD? - pretty please :)

lolz, I was SO tempted to nominate you at that point, maybee!!!

thanks for putting me onto them, I don't think I've laughed so much in a long time! (at least not as much as when I'm drunk!)

I made the wifey use my lanyard to work today, as she works in hospital as a midwife... apparently not a dangerous weapon there! lolz

I've bought one buring this month's show at the Bedford. Travelling to London from Holland was more then worth it! And so very considerate for Suman to stay and chat with everyone after the show! Pity Adam had the nightshift :(

Guys, if you EVER concider performing in the Netherlands, I'm sure lots of people will come to the show~!!
