"we have recently entered into a new deal with BMG for a large part of the catalogue, so as you will I’m sure have seen, they have already started a roll out plan for many of the more recent records. Over the coming months, we have many other releases in store, including vinyl - so hopefully you will find something to enjoy."
So I think it is certain that Medazzaland, Pop Trash, Astronaut and RCM wil get a vinyl release (again in some cases) this year.
I wonder what those would be? I mean, the only thing on vinyl that's popped up lately was the white vinyl of the first album and the pink ADITM. At any rate, this sounds promising, but I guess it's a wait and see game.

After not getting any answer from Katy (no surprises there I guess) on the e-mail I sent her on October 30 (see this thread) about possible re-issues I now sent an e-mail to Wendy Laister, taking the Bowie Brilliant Live Adventures series as a reference point. If I get a response I will let you know:
"At the moment I am buying the releases of the Brilliant Live Adventures series of David Bowie. This is a series 6 of his lesser known ’90 s shows. Each is released on cd and vinyl in limited numbers and in bundles which contain both and other merchandise. The vinyl sells out in hours, the cd’s in a couple of weeks. These are high quality releases for modest prices. I have enclosed a picture of the first three cd releases as I buy the cd’s as I only collect DD vinyl. But these releases (and other Bowie releases too) got me thinking again about something that has “bothered” me for some time now.
This is a good letter, and hopefully duran will release more vinyl in the future.
But the bowie releases are probably the worst example you could have ever picked.
They screwed up every single release, and made people pay for empty boxes, they sold out before letting people know they had stock.
They made more bowie collectors mad, and probably lost tons of fans due to how poorly it was handled.
