Remember when you were five, and the box your present came in was just as exciting as the present itself? Prepare to re-live that experience (without exasperating your parents) with this beautifully-packaged seasonal release.
If you know anything about I LIKE TRAINS already then it will come as no surprise that The Christmas Ship EP is not quite as jolly as the name may suggest. If, on the other hand, this is your first encounter with the TRAINS then you've picked a great time to board.
The story of The Christmas Ship is classic ILT fare – ironic, tragic and, of course, true. This EP, however, stands out in a few notable ways. Firstly, the five sections have been recorded in one take, and secondly, they come wrapped up in a generous limited edition digi-pack, complete with a specially commissioned short film showcasing the skills of a dancer, a choreographer and a video artist – how's that for wrapping paper? All this is available on CD and DVD, with a hand-numbered insert, probably written by Santa himself and available to pre-order from their website, link
