Re: Australian News Roundup

No problem. If anyone is into physical media buying, there is a great thread here https://forums.stevehoffman.tv/threads/amazon-au-price-watch-thread.776515/page-55 , where people post up to date bargains from Amazon AU. I've bought some really great stuff at next to nothing. There have been many Pe...

You think that's bad? That was an accident.
Read this blood curling article, and you will see how the music industry has treated their art over the decades.

Thanks for clarifying OOTC.

Re: Reissues project

I have considered whether it is my deck that's responsible for the noise, but it's highly unlikely. I have a good deck with an Ortofon blue cartridge that is properly aligned.
This does not happen with many other records.
I'll give Fundamental a wet clean and see if this improves.

Re: Introspective Test Pressing Clear Vinyl

Agent is correct. The Introspective clear vinyls were simply done by pressing plant workers for their own amusement. This release was not sanctioned by the Boys or their office, hence why there is no separate catalogue number. To summerise, this is an unofficial release. To add to some people's obse...

Re: Question regarding catalogue # 12RDJ6443 and 12RDJS6443

Hello I got hold of the above vinyls and as far as I can tell from Discogs, only the 12RDJ6443 is supposed to be in yellow vinyl, but both releases were in yellow vinyl. Is it a mistake on Discogs or have got my hands on something extremly special Cheers from Sweden Anders I think the Discogs scans...

Re: Reissues project

Not sure if there is a separate thread for the vinyl re-issues, so I found this one. I've just my copy of the re-issue of Fundamental, and I have to express my utter dissapointment. The vinyl is very noisy, to the point of there being an audible defect in the right channel midway through the first h...

Re: Australian News Roundup

Warners Australia raised the prices for this round of re-releases for no apparent reason. I think they saw how reasonably well Nightlife, Release and Fundamental did, and thought to themselves "let's rip those fans off". Prices overseas were the same. I usually buy from a local independent store in ...

Re: Reissues project

Dear Neil, The release date for the re-issues is the 28th of July. The last time I checked a day starts at 00:01. So in Australia the 28th started 11 hours ago. Please release the chains on the bonus tracks on Spotify. Even the highly anticipated Arcade Fire album Everything Now is available in full...

Re: "Annually 2017", pre-order now

Mine arrived early this week. Finally. Man the post is slow. The Undertow 12" arrived on Tuesday and that left Amazon EU (Poland) on the 2nd so literally 6 days to get here (obviously not via Aust Post). I did find that the Annually book feels a bit like a budget photo book you order online. It wasn...

Re: the real reason they went all electric

Is it a coincidence that they went electric right after they left Parlophone? Could it be that now that they have to foot the entire bill they realised that hiring producers such as Horn, Dawson or Xenomania is pricey enough. Add to that the staggering number of additional staff such as guitarists,...
