  1. Minus the Bear - Planet Of Ice 2xLP Reissue

    I personally feel that giving an opening band the appearance of top billing by way of poster design aesthetic is purely counter-intuitive and from a music-going standpoint it makes me feel annoyed because my first impulse was to feel disappointed that MTB's anniversary tour was to be carried out as an opening band but actually having to read carefully through poster revealed that was not the case. I've seen some posting about complaints that Suicide Squeeze seems to be, in some people's estimation, awkwardly and superfluously favoring support to its acts that are all-female or female majority bands. I'm not sure I agree but I haven't been following their promotion at all. I look at SS for old TAAS and MTB news and merch. Those are the only bands associate with that label that I know that I care about. Not sure if this is another link in the chain of that argument but taken at face value, not considering gender makeup of the personnel of each band, it seems weird. However, often times when a band is creating promotional materials for their own band for a tour wherein the place of the band in question is at an opening slot, they will still prioritize their own name in size and syntax on the poster to show their distinct fanbase that the advertisement concerns their band primarily and the details regarding the opening status or a simply NOT-top billing status are shared below. This to me is acceptable. Holding a grudge against SS in this case, may be a little misguided. It maybe depends on who the source is for that particular flyer. Did the band provide it or did the label? On the other hand, it may not really matter because fans of The Coathangers who don't care about MTB will be happy to see the aggrandizement of the band they care about and the details of their place in the lineup are their cross to bear if it need be an issue. Clearly SS is promoting using materials in support of both acts as they pertain to each bands' unique fanbase.
  2. Minus the Bear - Planet Of Ice 2xLP Reissue

    Its only one year late but I'll take it. I figured since they put a new album out in the 10th anniversary year of POI that we would just get shafted on a tour and hoopla. Glad they're doing it anyway. I have to get to this.
  3. This is abnormal though because this LP is not self-released and even though CM might not be the best label in terms of prices this is still a single LP that clocks in around 30 - 35 minutes. I don't even think GJ putting this out by themselves would be this big of a rip-off. If it comes with a 20-page hardcover book with art and lyrics then maybe it would be justified. I highly doubt that will be the case.
  4. Fuck that price tag. Are they serious? Does that album come with a blowjob?
  5. Technically you're not supposed to put quotes on an album title. I think the band probably mentioned the word "evolution" as a theme for the writing process and to give people a tasty nugget on the front cover they simple literally quoted that word as an indication of what will be a recurring theme in the discussion with the band about the process. That's just my guess.
  6. PO: Velvet Underground - Boxset

    I'm such a dope. I SAW "Velvet Underground" and my mind told me "Velvet Revolver." Fuck. To be clear, I wasn't HOPING for Velvet Revolver. I just thought I saw that.
  7. PO: Our Lady Peace- Clumsy

    It looks like most copies of this are said to be on opaque blue vinyl but this listing from hmv japan insists it is black vinyl: http://www.hmv.co.jp/en/artist_Our-Lady-Peace_000000000053123/item_Spiritual-Machines-Black-Vinyl_8275719
  8. PO: Our Lady Peace- Clumsy

    Spiritual Machines is pretty much the only OLP album I care about. I'm hoping they become more plentiful and less import-y.
  9. New Stuff in the DW Estore

    I know I'm traditionally thought of as the only user on this board who would or should care but its interesting to note that All We Love We Leave Behind, No Heroes and Axe To Fall are all back in stock at DW on black vinyl as they have previously not been in stock in that variant for some time.
  10. Thrice - The Alchemy Index [Reissue]

    I get a thing or two right every few moons or so. I think my assessment is based on not only the recent string of debacles with Shitbag but also after so many years of watching how "companies" come out of the woodwork and use corporate sounding language to imbue their brand with a misplaced sense expertise and experience when in actuality, in an effort to make any kind of living in this rotted out corpse of an economy, they feign credentials and find ways to score big accounts but after all of their bullshit they sold to their clients it is revealed through practice that they just simply can't perform on the desired scale. I see this shit all the time. There are no experts anymore. Just bullshitters playing expert.
  11. Thrice - The Alchemy Index [Reissue]

    I don't find it odd. I think it follows suit perfectly. Shitbag (as they are horrendously shitty) are probably pulling order data from what should be a secondary pool of orders by customers who SHOULD be in line for an as-yet-not manufactured product. What probably happened is, even if ShitBag is conscious of the fact that there should be two separate pools, they are simply pulling order data in no particular syntax and with no adherence to the concept of how there should be two separate order pools (based on the promises of the band) and in an effort to do a shitty job in as fast of a rush as possible, are just pulling any order data and sending the currently manufactured sets to what I have to assume is likely a mixture of orders from both of what should be two very separate pools. This makes the most sense as ShitBag are infinitely shitty.
  12. Reverb LP (new online marketplace)

    I think they should scrap the discogs.com-like title and variant library stuff and let people list items with details on their own like they do with the regular Reverb.com gear site and like eBay.
  13. Thrice - The Alchemy Index [Reissue]

    The top quote is the only really issue with the post in question.
  14. PO NOW: ISIS - Mosquito Control Reissue

    Looks like. That was fast but I bet they are sharing the total quantity between the US and EU stores so maybe they have fewer copies of that variant than the US store.
