THIS ITEM IS A PRE-ORDER. WE EXPECT IT TO SHIP ON OR BEFORE THE APRIL 20TH RELEASE DATE.

VINYL FORMAT. Teargarden By Kaleidyscope Vol. 1 | Songs for a Sailor is packaged in a silk-screened wooden box (7 1/4" tall x 8" wide x 1.05" thick). Each box contains: a 4-song CD (with four new Smashing Pumpkins songs and instrumental intros), a 7" vinyl single (containing a new song and a B-Side), and a hand-carved "leopard stone" obelisk, about 2" tall, similar to marble. Tracks ******* the guitar squealing "Song for a Son," "Widow Wake My Mind" - a jagged-chorded, keyboard-buttressed ballad; "Astral Planes," and "A Stitch in Time." Billy Corgan is playing and recording almost everything himself, with studio help from long time collaborator Kerry Brown and new drummer Mike Byrne.

Teargarden By Kaleidyscope Vol. 1 is the first release in a series of eleven, comprising forty-four songs, to be anthologized in four song EPs in limited and elaborate packaging. The concept for Teargarden is based around four Tarot cards: the Child, the Fool, the Skeptic and the Mystic.

Interesting - I didn't know that Led Zep brought those out -

"Only 1000 of these 11.75" ceramic sculptures were produced in 1976 to promote the release of Led Zeppelin's "Presence" album."

Yeah really happy with this, although 11 of these at 25 quid a go.That's 275 for the album, I guess that'll teach me for only getting two copies of Zeitshite.

Not sure I understand what 'insrumental intros' means, although i'm hoping the four songs are going to flow into one another?

Any ideas if this is 6 songs or the 4 with two tracks duplicated on the vinyl?

So would it be a 4 song CD + a vinyl with a totally different song and b-side (i.e., 6 songs total)? I guess that would make sense, considering we know that Billy has recorded 6 songs thus far. I do wonder though what it means by "instrumental intros." Perhaps extended versions of the released tracks?

Color me a little surprised that this is actually coming to fruition.

Wonder if these legit pressings will be mixed a little differently? I hope it's 6 songs total but wouldn't be surprised if 2 of the songs on the cd are what's on the vinyl. Because if 11 of these came out then that would give us 66 songs. But who's to say a 44-song album couldn't have a bunch of B-sides?

Wish the pics weren't a mock-up and we could read what's printed on the box. The write-up at insound is pretty vague and open to interpretation to say the least. But that's not their fault.

I'm thinking the single on the 7" is from the 4-batch, and the b-side will be unique. 55 songs total including b-sides is pretty close to what he said he had already, right? I think he mentioned he had 53/54 songs?

yes this is what the fans can fuck themselves up the ass with.. after paying for this pile of shit.

I am surprised, after all the complaining fans have done in the past about pricing (archives, tickets, studio video access project, etc.) that no one is complaining about what is essentially a 4 song CD in a box. Yes you get a bonus 7'' vinyl and a 2'' dildo but still, $30????

In 1995, I paid 23.99 for MCIS, a 28 song set. All the songs on said set were good. Not going to spend $30 on this, especially since I already hate half of what's on that CD. I figured the EP's would cost 11 bucks at most, but holy crap that's an insane price.

maybe someone would have loved to buy it if it was reasonably priced. Do we really need an elaborate box with toys for a 4 song ep? and there's going to be 11 of these?

and corganist, i'll eat my words if it happens but I highly highly doubt he'll release just a CD when he can be making $330 off of each dumbass fan for the entire record, + whatever he decides to charge for the final box set. Also, why would he shell money out of his pocket to produce an elaborate box set when he knows the majority of his fans would prefer to pay 8-10 bucks on the 'just CD' version?

RenewRevive

I still feel ripped buying deluxe Zeitgeist.

No-frills CD releases of the EPs - I'd consider getting if they were priced low. $30 - which will convert relatively badly into sterling - for a bunch of junk i don't want - fuck no.

I guess it will be dl-only and see if the final box-set is worthwhile.

Man, it takes me about 3 days to recover from these info-releases :(

I find it sad that we have to hear about this release from Amazon/Insound before the band can release any info on it officially on their own website. As I recall, weren't these EPs supposed to be super limited?

I'll still buy it, but I just wish the SP camp would get their shit together. Remember this is what Billy C said himself:

"We will however sell highly limited edition EPs (of 4 songs each times 11), and details of how those EPs will be made available are still being worked out. Because the songs themselves will be free, the EPs will be more like collectors items for the discerning fan who will want the art itself, along with the highest possible audio quality available."

So $30 for basically 2 new songs on vinyl and a hand-carved "leopard stone" obelisk? And it isn't even numbered?? No poster or other items (artwork/polaroids/anything else exclusive)? No mention of a "download card" to put these on your IPOD/Computer? No mention of how many copies being made? No mention if the 7" is on colored vinyl or not?

Ugh. I wish I could be a part of planning a limited edition release. Lord knows I bought so many of the past 20+ years, I know what adds value and what doesn't.

It wasn't the band or the label screwing around. I have no clue where they were getting the info from since when I asked friends at Merge records they were very clear that there never was a release date until a few weeks ago when the pre-sale started. That's the good thing about Merge the label has a total of like 11 employees so it's easy to get a straight answer.

I didn't order from Insound for that very reason I order from Merge 3 weeks ago, I'm pretty sure I was the first person to order a copy since the order form was not there until I hit refresh. There was no way i was giving a retailer a pre-order for something that the record company could not tell me when it would be released. Insound was posting rumors at one point an article said it was rumored to come out on the 10th anniversary, ask Martin at Merge and I was told there was no way in hell it was coming out in the next six months. Meanwhile Insound had it listed as shipping on the anniversary date.

slunken
02-22-2010, 09:27 PM
I know a lot of times a pre-order will be in effect long before the web-site (of the actual label)is actually updated. This is just my own experience. Case in point, I just received an update of Olde English Spelling Bee giving me pre-order options for 2 records but the actual pre-order has been in place for more than a week.

When a label gives a projected release date, they often give their major distros the same heads-up. More often than not (especially with a page like Insound who deals with fakey indie releases) those dates are wrong. Way wrong.

Not trying to champion Insound by any means. Or pick a fight. Just saying that when you go these routes you have to know what you're getting yourself into.

Rule #6 is don’t let anyone lie to you. Don’t make excuses for their lies or distortions, whether it’s the President, your teacher, or Jack from Jack in the Box. Come to think of it, Jack seems pretty honest. If someone believes the propaganda, then they believe what is coming out of their mouths. That doesn’t necessarily make them liars, but it does make them sort of a dark accomplice.

I think it's obvious that humanity is not going in the right direction right now. For Bill to recognize this and put himself out there like that and try to make a positive impact is an honorable thing for the guy to do and I can't hold it against him.

Disturbing imagery. That image of him in a fake plastic womb lying naked in the fetal position comes to mind. That image was far more shocking and disturbing than 2 girls 1 up or goatse or lemonparty.

I would guess that the two tracks vinyl will be the next 2 tracks on Teargarden, or at least one of them will be (it says "new song" and "b-side" so one would be the next Teargarden track and the b-side would only be on the vinyl). What about releasing the whole thing for free, yo?

it says "new song", yes, but it also says that the cd will contain "4 new songs" and these are the songs that will already be released for free. so it's not clear.
but my guess is that it will be one of those "4 new songs" on the vinyl.

I think it could be Sparrowland or whatever it was on that DLTV thing. That didn't sound like an A-Side to me.

I also think that's how it will be. They've been saying for a while now that they've recorded six songs thus far. 4 songs on the CD + 1 A side + 1 B side of the vinyl = 6 songs.

Basically it looks people are going to be paying for a fancy box, a paperweight, and the B-side of the vinyl (assuming that it doesn't get released for free at some point). Eh. Most of us have paid more and gotten less for other things related to this band before.

the b-side of the 7" maybe. but i really think the a-side will be one of the songs off the cd. the song on the vinyl is announced as a new song, but so are all four cd songs, so it's perfectly possible.
don't forget they have to get to 44 songs here. surely they're not going to add another 11 b-sides. maybe a handful, but it's going to be hard enough as it is.

so yeah, they could give away one of the next songs on the vinyl already, but then it would be kind of hard of selling the next ep with the same song again. no?

To be honest, I think if you're going to actually buy the flippin thing, come the next mini-box-set I don't think many will care that they have the same song twice (once on CD, once on record). I see it more as a teaser for what's up next, but the A-side being one of the "Songs for a Sailor" CD tracks also sounds plausible (but, once again, you are ending up with the same song twice on two different formats). But if I had to guess, I would think that the A-side is a song from the next set of 4. Matches up with the "six songs done" thing that Billy said.

Why wasn't there an initial press release regarding this first EP? It's official, no doubt, but will it be available through online pre-orders ONLY? and why through Amazon and InSound? Why not through the official site?

I guess now that it's been delayed we won't be seeing an official statement for a while... unless I missed it and am completely delusional?

The only thing that this project has proved so far is that in order to get anything done on schedule you need a label behind you. Not something I agree with, but he's now a month behind on the release schedule and he'll be 5 months behind on the EPs by the time the first one comes out.

Way to sock it to the industry!
