Someone said it months ago, but it's worth saying again - 36 Crazyfists's stuff that hasn't been pressed yet; mostly Bitterness the Star and A Snow Capped Romance though. Been listening to Bitterness the Star a lot lately, fantastic album.

Posting to say that sometimes old dreams do come true.

Stabbing Westward - Darkest Days/Wither Blister Burn and Peel (Man, I wish they'd regroup; The Dreaming is just so mediocre and derivative)

 

OSI - OSI, Free, Blood 

 

Boris - Heavy Rocks orange cover/2002

 

 

I can't believe none of these have been pressed, especially the OSI and Boris. C'mon, all I want to do is give you people my money!

Blindside - A Thought Crushed My Mind/Silence

P.O.D. - Snuff the Punk/Brown/The Fundamental Elements of Southtown

Embodyment - The Narrow Scope of Things

Marcy Playground - Marcy Playground

Matchbox Twenty - More Than You Think You Are

Noise Ratchet - Till We Have Faces

Savage Garden - Savage Garden

Tool - 10,000 Days (official release, not a bootleg)

Powerman 5000 - Mega!!Kung Fu Radio

Consider me a bit guilty for admitting this, but I liked the spit-shine they did on production value when Tonight the Stars Revolt! Came out. Surprised neither ever got a LP release.

Yeah not as big of a fan of that one, though I'd buy it if it were pressed. Mega! would be great though.

Would buy this big time. Been sort of tempted by the the copies of the debut album Crosby's been selling lately but keep talking myself out of it. 

Did you change your mind and snagged the $15 used one on amazon? Need to get that one as well...

I loved NUDE like 10 years ago and listened to it again today...this really needs a vinyl press! It's so good!

 

BTW, what's up with these "Stripped" releases? Did I miss something?

Nah I haven't grabbed any used records that weren't in a store where I could physically check them in about 2 years.

Nude definitely does hold up very well and I go back to it on a semi-regularly basis.

The stripped releases were originally conceived as a way to drum up some cash for another full band album (kind of like the Jon Crosby  and Jon Crosby and the resonators stuff in his Generica series). They're acoustic re-recordings of full VAST albums  with the most recent one being re-recorded acoustic versions of material written before the debut album. Stripped Black is the only one that has had a vinyl release and thats a fully acoustic version of the debut album. Full 6 CD set is on sale for $29.95+p&p atm which I've also been tempted by but everything I've ordered from america has been hitting me hard with postage fees lately so again I've held off. 

Jon's also just released a book and I imagine he'll funnel some of his profit from that into new full band recordings.

I can't believe the first VAST album got pressed.... twice! I'm really shocked I haven't heard anything about it until now.  I'll probably grab one once I convince myself the nostalgia is worth it.

I still dig most of their albums except Music For People to be honest. Their debut hasn't aged half as badly as a lot of other early 2000's music I was into back in the day.

Too many obscure Canadian indie-rock albums to mention, but let's start with Duotang's sophomore effort, 1998's third-wave-mod classic The Cons & The Pros (Yes, you're seeing that right: They're a bass-and-drums duo) as well as...

...Bodega's final album, 2001's Without A Plan. If you understand what "produced by David Fridmann" means, then that's all you need to know. Otherwise, think The Beach Boys but also Lee Hazlewood and even Sean Lennon: Lush harmonies, oddball instruments and a keen sense of pop-songcraft.

Finally, while Sianspheric are known for their first album Somnium from 1995 (which finally got its first vinyl pressing  a month back), their much more noisy second album, 1998's There's Always Someplace You'd Rather Be  that more or less anticipated the stripped-down dirty sound Mogwai would use on CODY a year later (and even their 2001 album The Sound of the Colour of the Sun) have yet to be pressed on vinyl.

Label Obscura and Paper Bag Vintage are trying to fix the lack of 90s Can Rock reissues/first vinyl releases but it's maybe the first thing I'd do with a decent bank loan tbh.
