Willy isn't willing to go the proverbial extra mile. It's a Corgan/Iha show but you get only Billy's scribble on it. He should have hired TWO extra employees.

Bill's relationship with Sumerian Records about to tank in 3...2...1...

This thing ain't ever coming out because Bill wants to spend other people's money doing it.

Zuzu's are looking for talented and innovative distribution executives to roll-out an exciting new Smashing Pumpkins project. This is a unique opportunity to gain exposure in package facilitation and client management during one of the most challenging times for prominent independent business. Contact Airplane Mode with your CV and any time you'd be willing to donate to this local cause.

Imagine telling 90’s kids in 25 years their local record store would be wall to wall vinyl with a tiny CD section out the back.

Stop the world I want to get off, clowns everywhere, mang.
the endless precession of simulacra, the vinyl is an empty signifier of "hipness"

let's be real, Machina has an extremely niche market. I had a coworker who was like hardcore into the Pumpkins, and particularly Machina. Weird, I know. The man also worse Limp Bizkit shirts to work, if that context helps. Anyway, said guy was not really aware of Machina II, and certainly unware of the mythos surrounding the originally planned triple album thingy, the reworked tracklists, fan remasters, etc.

All of this is to say, if that guy doesn't care about a Machina rework, I don't really know who does outside of this weird pocket of the internet. And that is why they REALLY need that vinyl, because the profit margin of a vinyl, especially the 8-Vinyl Super Special Macchu Picchu Obelisk Tea Set, is probably the only way to break even, and they know many of us shitheads will pay for it.

Indeed. This shithead is ready to pay. I will boycott if strawberry has redone the art through.

I'd drop half a grand in Ol' Teabag Bills pockets to get an exhaustive Machina reissue and be on my on way.

I'd take a Zwan reissue too, WTF is the hold out with that?

the lines meeting in the middle means that workers have to be paid jack shit and why you have to complain about teenagers buying vinyl

B0lly is putting out vinyls of shows from 1992 instead of the machina reissue. Hurry up on the machina vinyl, B0lly. Lets make this a great year.

Thank you.

I know some thought Billy was trashing Sumerian when he mentioned the record label but apparently he was talking about UM

Release the vinyl later.

Simple. The small number of vinyl buyers will still be there in a year or so.

Not Billy’s fault though ON THIS OCCASION.

UNIVERSAL MUSIC, YOU PIECE OF SHIT DUMBASS.

Kinda funny how this is exactly what I said is going on and I was told that's not how it works by another member on here.

Universal would rather use the limited resources due to the vinyl demand to press new artists they know will sell rather than reissue a multi-record boxset for a failed older album from 20+ years ago. They're in no rush to put this thing out. And, honestly, is anyone really that surprised?

Why can't they make a good old fashioned CD boxset? Make it a big box for all the artwork.

When you look at the likes of King Crimson releasing a 14 CD boxset from ONE YEAR of their existence (1969).
