Could the ZFT please consider getting a UK/European distributor as the import costs coupled with the postage costs make them quite expensive releases for us across the pond.

With the import and postage costs, each vinyl album cost in the region of £35 which is a lot of money for albums that are less than 40 minutes long.

Furthermore, the Hot Rats vinyl if it does run again is even more expensive and when all the import costs, postage costs are calculated alongside the price for this one, it works out at nearly £50.

With a large portion of your fan base being based in Europe, it would make sense to have an European distributor.

European pressing plants press better vinyl also, that's just a fact.

I simply cannot afford to pay a comic book company an extra 20 quid every time I want a Zappa vinyl. Which then forces us onto the likes of discogs to look for copies and then the ZFT don't make a bean.
