I'm in the UK too.  Thats why I've tried to go for the UK/EU pressings in the most part due to shipping. Made exceptions on the RAINN charity one as Teal was still only $35 inc postage to UK. And the Same Ghost was too nice to ignore.

Yeah same here....I've gone for several of the UK/EU ones..and probably get the rest too in time....but had to get the Rhubarb & Same Ghost ones...the charity one (of course!) & a few others that were too nice to ignore! It's been an expensive month for me!

Which do you guys think has the best standard black version?

Honestly, probably the 2LP 45RPM release via Sofa King Vinyl that is currently being funded via Qrates. 200 need to be sold for the pressing to happen. If you care about the best sound, I'd go for that one. It will be pressed by GZ Media if successful (same plant Blood Music uses, I believe) but cut at 45 RPM for higher fidelity. Plus, the shipping is super cheap if outside the USA.

I think all said and done..the one I choose will come down to the best price...so might be the Sofa King or that interesting Aural Pleasure variant...but haven't check out the shipping costs for that one yet.

 

Been checking the stock levels of those that I can check...not a lot much shifted today.....but then I've just remembered..it's Black Friday, today! lol!

Folks will no doubt be engaging in battle against other shoppers...how many will end up in A&E today, I wonder?! :)

Saw this on VMP.....FB colours vote, you can pick your fav three out of the 17...done mine...some nice designs there, but the first one looks exactly like the Gruesome one, couple of others very similar to other Flightless pressings.

 

Check them out on  VMP  -

Have to say that most of them are unimpressive

I quite liked number 3, 6, & 12 myself.

 

Wondering where this Black Friday auction for ethereal's test pressing is happening? Or have I missed it....again!

And still hoping that last liquid filled one from Kanya West's RAINN charity one will materialise too.

We put up 2 test pressings around Midnight EST Black Friday and both sold within 10-15 mins.

im not sure where the auction info was posted but I’ll be sure to let you know if we decide to part ways with any more.

How many copies have got left of your variant remaining? Nearly gone I would presume?

Not sure if this one has popped up somewhere before...but another variant is forthcoming from Juno recordsvia VOD, releasing on 22nd Dec. No info on it yet though..might just be a standard balck issue.

Would be nice if folks would be willing to list what Poly orders they gone for...

 

Fuzz Club - Version 1 (probably shoulda grabbed Version 2 as well, although their pre-order page supplies no information - except a possible cover EDIT: oops I mean back cover probably)

Greenway - Test Press Bundle (if I knew there was gonna be 75 I might have not done this)

Needle Juice - Poly Colour + Cassette

Stolen Body - Tri Colour and Wanaland

RAINN Charity - Wizard Blob (tried very hard to get a wax mage through the shift in pledges but no luck)

Vinyl Collective Variant

Jett Plastic and Nomad Eel "not really wax mage records" variants with inverse art

PIAPTK -  Thirty Six Seconds From Polygondwanaland That Go On Forever 7"

Salty Dog - Lava Lamp

Pocket Cat! - Laserdisc

Same Ghost - Sepia Cover

 

I don't think I've made any impulse buys since then... I almost did the Milk and Honey. Why did I buy all this?

There's always room for one...no... two..erm.....three...ack...to hell wiv it....loads more! :) 

 

I've not bought anymore so far....I've checked stocl levels of those i'm interested in..and they ain't moving much..although the Gruesome isn't far off running out..just 50 or so left of that one.

As for the two Hot Wax variants...they aren't shifting...still around 380 for the honey one...and over 400 of the boxset. Nice designs but they set their limits way too high, & with just 2 weeks left to flog them all..they ain't going to be pressed.

 

Edit: just spotted (& bagged) test pressings, now available at Constant Rotation...15 total £20 + P&P.

At least I manage to get a TP at last!

 

One would think..some details, mock ups & artwork would be posted by now...I haven't foggiest idea what the 3 CR designs are gonna look like! They could be crap! Although they have stated they'll be giving some to the band..so they need to be good! Anyhoo..for those that like test pressings..geddem 'ere...

I popped my multiple-variant cherry on this one because novelty. And yes, I'll flip them if there's money to be made off them.

PO'd

  1. Stolen Body - 1LP Crumbling Castle Edition (out of 250)
  2. Fishbum - 2x one-sided lathe-cut LPs (1 black/1 translucent + zine) (out of 50)
  3. Aural Pleasure Kickstarter - 2xLP 45RPM 50/50 blue/yellow  (out of 390)

and PO SOON (once this BC-exclusive pressing with limited Canada-only copies available for shipping goes up for sale)...

Neptoon - 1LP "A side/B side Opaque Red and Transparent Blue with an Opaque Yellow Splatter" (Not sure if that's meant to be "half/half" or not because otherwise that transparent blue is going to look mighty purple if it's refracting the opaque red vinyl) (not sure how limited)

 

I'm guessing the 2xlp editions will get the most play from me but I'll start with Aural Pleasure first just in case there's a market for the Fishbum (Same goes for the Neptoon Records version, especially since the label won't sell outside of Canada, making people like me who would flip them the only means of purchase).

An interesting development. Seemingly due to criticism, Needlejuice has had over it's Decagon picture disks, they've changed the designs...and I must they do look better now; not exactly Gizz colours though..but a better effort.

The original design was pretty bad and I understand them wanting something original to set them apart from other releases though I can’t help but feel that ANY of the artwork provided by the band / Jason Galea with the vinyl and CD masters would have looked a lot cooler.

 

I have no plans of purchasing this on picture disc though so if other people can enjoy this then good for them.

Needle juice could've left the skull image..i thought that was okay....it was just the almost cartoonish castle wall extracts taken from the front of the album, that I felt was letting it down. I'm not sure how I feel about these new ones...they aren't Gizzy enough for me.....need more dark greens and reds in them I think!

 

Just wondering what the 47 buyers that did like the original designs, gonna think be thinking about these new ones! They might all cancel their orders!

 

I've just checked their stock..and it seems to be working...they've sold another 2 copies today! Hooray! :)

On a side note....When the hell is Homeless gonna be putting up it's feckin' designs?! It's been nearly two weeks now! Same goes for Constant Rotation too. C'mon guys...pull ya socks up, ya slackers!

I fall in this camp too, apologies.

I'm working with local artists on a special screen-printed design and finally met with them last night to iron out details & bat some ideas around. Trying to get together has been like pulling teeth. Artists, lol.

Anyway, I told them I needed an image to share in the next 7-10 days, even if it's just a ballpark rendering of what they are thinking about.

I'm excited though, we came up with some cool packaging ideas, and one of my artists is from Melbourne and knows the Gizz guys a little bit.

Crabe records (France)

tape limited to 10

https://craberecords.bandcamp.com/album/polygondwanaland

 

Edit : Sold out

I was thinking of ordering one of these, as I do like tapes, but I've rather misunderstood what Crabbe were doing, so have missed the boat on these ones.  Crabbe had  10 different listings on discogs a week ago (now just the one) suggesting that were doing 10 tapes of 10 different designs. I assumed from that they were doing 10 units of each variant name. But I see it's actually 1 of each, so the ten buyers will get a unique cassette, each with it's own name & and cover artwork.

 

The names:

- Space Mammoth
- Vultures Sunset
- Sideral Snail
- The infinite Ladder to Fiery Furnace
- Snow Rhino
- Cult of the Skull
- Jurassic Giant
- Levitating Flowers
- Castle with Teeth
- Crumbling Candle Castles

 

The infinite Ladder to Fiery Furnace & Levitating Flowers sounds intriguing! :)
