Late last month, Tourniquet launched a crowdfunding campaign to fund “Vanishing Lessons – 25th Anniversary Vinyl. The set target of €3,455 has been achieved, at the moment of writing even € 6.185, with still 7 days to go …. Kirkpatrick says: .

STRETCH GOAL ADDED! – With 7 days to go, thanks to all of you – we’re waay over the initial goal! So we came up with a cool idea for a “stretch goal”: A flash drive filled with Vanishing Lessons era photos: in studio, tour photos, concert fliers, promo stuff – whatever we dig up! This will be a great look at what went down during that time. Many of these photos have never been released to the public. If we reach the stretch goal of $8,000, EVERY BACKER will get a flash drive, preloaded with the photos!!
