I think it's officially put back, this blurb is on the Helter Skelter main page:

New titles for 2012 include a revised and updated B-format edition of In Search Of The La's, by MW Macefield


Kev quoted this on the last past where it said 2011-2012, so looks like a definite slip to next year now.

is that a fan made cover for the book? the bass drum writing looks a lot different from when I saw it?

hmmm, the "Say Skin Up Yer Bastards" is missing and the drum looks a lot cleaner and minus Neil Mavers' blood!

If that is the cover, it's a shame they didn't ask for the bass drum because it'd have looked really nice!

yeah - unless the picture was taken years ago (which looks doubtful) it's a snap of a dodgy copy of the drum? :?

C'mon now, the La's bass drum is the public logo of the band (the private one being sedo obviously). As we learned last time with the boxed set, sometimes getting clearance for things can be a pain when you are dealing with the shifting sands of deadlines. Of course authenticity being the sticky wicket that it is with this lot, they should have known that we'd spot it immediately. That being said, it's nice to see Macey getting his work back into print. Let's not start rubbishing it immediately.
