Eschewing the (now nearly defunct) usual sales model for the initial rollout of their new CD,
Blondie has made Panic Of Girls available as a UK import "fan pack" before it hits stores in the USA.
This set includes the album (with bonus tracks not available on the vinyl or standard CD release),
six pinback buttons, reprints of four of Chris Stein's vintage Blondie photos as souvenir postcards
and an all new "as told by the band" glossy magazine-format book on the history (and present) of Blondie.
This is yet ANOTHER prime example of how an established band (who are creative,
media-savvy and aware of their particular tier of the pop culture heirarchy) can serve the fans...
By mining the archives and revisiting pieces of their legacy to offer interested die-hards
a rare, completist goodie chest filled with copious amounts of swag to complement their new music.
