Default Has there been any updates on those vinyl releases I overpaid for and already regret?

Just curious. I can't even remember what they were supposed to have on them...a live show?

Sounds like you made a great decision

I wasn't aware of this shit, but I felt like doing some research, so:

Long answer

According to the SP Archives Instagram account, as of two days ago, test presses of the Viper Room show are ready for Billy to review; seems like presses of the Japan show would also be ready by now or will be soon, based on a post about the... stampy things they use to press the vinyls being ready, a couple weeks ago.

When the first vinyl, I think the Japan one, was announced, it said there was going to be a six-month shipping lead time, which would put it somewhere around the end of November if, LOL, this ships on, LOL, schedule

I know nothing about vinyl but I think I've been seeing people comment on vinyl production being really slow this year across the board? So that may come into play

Short answer

You flushed your money down the toilet back in May and you're checking in with the local sewage treatment plant today to see about getting it back

I hope the cover isn't that plain text art they used in the online shop.

Well they're not hiring a Peter Blake, that's for sure. They already sold the damn thing. It's a business. And business must be sustainable!1!!

Before orders ship, there’s going to be a special giveaway first…

Giving possibly just *one* lucky winner… a chance to hear that Viper Room show FIRST, before everyone else already did.

I wish it was even more generic and obtuse fwiw. Just a plain black sleeve with a line of text maybe. it's not like it needs to grab your eye from the record bin

Billy needs to adopt the Jack White/ Third Man Records model IMO.

They seem to run a pretty tight ship over there, and the archive releases are done really well.

archive money is going towards funding the machina release that will hopefully make enough profit to get the archive vinyls pressed or it's back to Reverb and ZERO shirts

Please note there is a worldwide vinyl shortage still in place due to
a conspiracy cooked up by Barack Obama to scare us all
COVID-19.

All sales are final bromigo!

He said they are preparing Viper Room vinyl for shipping. Apparently those vinyl were pressed at a different plant than the Japan show. They decided just to mail out Viper Room since they had them.

why does he get so elaborate with this shit? can't he just throw the DATs up on a site we pay $20 a month for? there are enough nerd freaks here - he doesn't even need to mix or edit, the board will make ourselves a live record for christfuckingsakes
