through this logic, the new SP music is also a form of punishment.
the word "weaponize" comes rolling off his lips pretty often.

i bet when a part is sounding too rocking in the studio, he probably becomes tortured, enraged, forehead veins bulging, "this part is gonna sound too good for these fucking assholes. they love that siamese dream feel."

"HEY BJORN"

"ja?"

"TRASH THAT TAKE. MAKE IT GONE.
AND SET UP THE SHITTIEST SYNTHESIZER YOU HAVE IN THIS GODDAMN STUDIO"

I could be wrong, but if you watch the video, I believe he was the one who first said "Sunday" instead of Saturday.

I buy plenty of double LPs on colored vinyl that are extremely high quality and from extremely tiny labels that are 100% independant and run by like literally just one guy with zero distribution and the most I've paid was like $38. Talking editions of 250, 500, 1000, 1500.

Some communities (like wrestling or video games or tcg's) just LOVE sucking every possible penny from their idiot fans.

I'd rather have the silver variant but I guess I'll have to go with gold because it's shipping first? That makes absolutely no sense but okay.

And why are they doing open pre-orders for like a week and also warning people they might sell out fast? IT MAKES NO SENSE.

As someone who compulsively buys records to the point of having a shitty addiction, this is so insane to me. Like who's even in charge of listening to the test pressings? On what kind of equipment?

I guarantee you in 6 months we're going to see posts from Zuzu's going "look we're sorry your record jacket got dinged or the corner bent but this happens in the shipping process and we cannot offer replacement jackets.

Oh fuck I just realized I wonder what kind of mailers they're going to use. God this is going to be A MESS haha I can't wait.

Lmao vinyl records were clearly designed to be bought and sold inside physical stores. This whole trend were people have them mailed out is mental.

Having vinyl shipped out one at a time is a bit like shipping fine porcelain.

Edit: I’ve checked and fine porcelain is actually cheaper than B0lly’s signed in blood limited edition vinyl.

They were mailed to the stores in boxes of 25/50/100 pieces.

My one experience of buying vinyl from Zuzu's was AEGEA and it disappeared into thin air and never arrived. They did refund me but told me they had no backup copies to send as a replacement, so good luck if you have a problem of any sort.

Really the prices just alienate me from the band more, there's plenty of other artists out there who wouldn't run their projects as an opportunity to price gouge fans in order to prop up their other businesses. I'd like to support an archive project, I'm the sort of fan who should be really into this... but instead I just think meh, why bother

Isn't pre-order that thing where you ask in advance how many people want it? How can you even sell out?

I don't mind experimental modular drone and the artwork was pretty nice. I'd prob pick a copy up as a curio if I saw it for say, £50

isn't part of the charm of vinyl that you can get mailed something and it IS the record, fucked up sleeve or bent corners or weird misprint? it's part of the exciting serendipity of life. mp3 or flac is the avenue for 90º angles and digital perfection

~

we already have audio of this show - i feel like if i got the vinyl i'd be disappointed no matter what, cause it's like, oh - it's the board copy. cool.

Getting a $170 vinyl chipped, bent or smashed in shipping doesn't sound super fun.

Fuck, even summer heat is said to be a problem with shipping vinyl. Really the more you look into it the more you realize it's a medium for/from the great era of physical retail.
