How to get our records

The Only Stars single is still available to buy online from the National Park Bandcamp page. Most of our releases are sold out in the shops but we may still have copies of a couple of them. If you can't find them or live overseas we can post those we have, to you. If you can find them in the shops you might want to buy them that way, we have to add postage and packaging. If you are lucky enough to live in Glasgow, Monorail records is your best bet.

Some still in stock, direct from us via Yield release on Bandcamp.

Emerging from our cave to produce this Velvets/ Beat Happening inspired clatter of medieval-folk-drone pop. Exciting additions to the band on this recording are: the amazing jazz-outsider Bill Wells (piano) and Sarah Martin (flute) and Mick Cooke (horn) from Belle and Sebastian. B-side: La Solara.

Norman Dolph's Money 7"

Earworm Records WORM SS4

Probably the nearest we'll ever get to a party record. If there'd been a version of Green Onions on the Faust Tapes it might have sounded a bit like this. Furthers the apocryphal myth that Norman Dolph was a shoe salesmen who paid for the Velvet Underground's Banana album.

"New comer from UK. I heard they even played with Belle & Sebastian. Reminds me Galaxie 500~Yo La Tengo, but more sentiment. Talk about the sound, the majority of songs in the record are instrumental, with the sense of acid rock. Comfortable!"

Sterling LP track

Sulphur SULCD001 (Beggars)

The second of two tracks recorded with "the Pilot" after Sterling Morrison's death and we offer this in tribute. Scott's piano playing on this is truly celestial. In another collaboration I passed my test first time with Sushil's driving school, Autopilot last year.
