    The tour's items were marked with this:
    (c) 1999 The Reptile House Ltd./Under License to Blue Grape Merchandising
    (r) Manufactured by C & D Visionary Inc.

    Postcards From Above the Chemist is a lyrics book, Heartland is an anthology of book-sized Sisters zines (both released in early '90s), Underneath the Rock is the official Sisters fanzine, introduced in early 90s and stopped in 1996 when the Reptile House went down under, Glasperlenspiel is the new unofficial zine, the only one active in English language. The latest can be overviewed and ordered via their homepage at http://gps.tsom.org. At the bargain price they offer (you only have to cover the postage), it's well worth ordering. While we're on that, if German is your language of preference, consider getting the Head and Star fanzine.

    All the standard Reptile House t-shirts in theory are available from the them; the price is 12 Brittish pounds (roughly US$20) for a shirt, plus postage. In practice, mostly due to band's hibernation the service was too expensive to maintain, so, as it was put in last Underneath the Rock, Reptile House had to "restrict itself to mail-order activity with a much smaller range". Currently its operations are limited to occasional reply to t-shirts request. Although Reptile House has its own web site at http://www.the-reptile-house.com it was inactive since its appearance several years ago. The only way to get in contact with them is sending snail mail (probably with IRC included) via the address listed in the website.

    Thanks to Robert Hedengren (rwednesday@bellsouth.net), Tony Beck (tristren@earthling.net) and Christian Wojtysiak from Head and Star. Tour sticker scanned by Christer Andersson (christe@nada.kth.se).
