A strictly limited edition set of 12 postcards is now available. They feature the silver gelatin photograms made by Alex that ended up in the artwork for Ape Delay. There's one for each song on the album, plus the album cover image. You can buy them at ollomusic.com. They look bloody good framed, frankly. Printed on 100% post-consumer waster recycled card. Might be nice as a gift, bundled with a copy of the album? I dunno. Oh yes, when you buy the postcards you get a download of Ned Kelly in a Burqa, which was previously only available with the 7" single.
Tune in to Extended Play with Bobby Oh Yeah on 2SER next Monday night 22 September between 9pm and 10.30pm to hear an exclusive airing of a track that didn't make it onto 'Ape Delay'.

Truth is, we've only just set this up, but we've loaded it with some old news so we don't look too sad.
We are surprised and proud to say that ollo have been 'long-listed' for the Coopers Australian Music Prize. This means the judges feel it's worth considering for the shortlist. We would fall over in shock if we made the final list but it's really cool to be included at all alongside such artists.
In a slightly odd naming twist, Alex's great aunt, Minnie Cooper - I kid you not - won a music prize with her choir early last century and travelled to Australia to sing.
