  1. Anyone have an opinion on how the Newberry pressing sounds? I really dig this album, though can appreciate how fans of her earlier work might find it a little flat.
  2. Liking these tunes better than anything he's released since Blues Funeral - the bio story helps I think - looking forward to the album.
  3. Argh missed out on a Deathwish - thanks for posting though. Forget how awesome this group was sometimes, and would have been great if they released more material.
  4. NZ vendors have a blue/black edition if any international fans are interested in getting one of those https://www.radio13.co.nz/articles/aldous-hardings-new-lp-is-designer/
  5. The email was amusing - unsure if I want a French-Canadian arm hair now or not. Many thanks to lethalenforcer and others above for the info they provided on this. Your Heads Up Vinyl Is Coming Soon! Hello Dear Human/Ancient Fashion Records Customer! First of all, thank you for buying Heads Up on vinyl! We sold all the split color vinyl in under 2 hours! We were totally overwhelmed by the response. Incredible. As I write this message I am waiting in my apartment for records to arrive at my door from Third Man Pressing! This is very exciting. By purchasing the vinyl last weekend you participated in a pre-sale for a record that is officially being re-released Nov 2nd 2018. Once the records arrive (any minute now!), I will start to prepare them for shipment and get them out of the door before I leave for the Heads Up! Is Now tour on October 25th. I'll have all the unsigned vinyl on it's way to you before then. As for the autographed copies, Jesse and I will sign those when we're in LA together on Nov 5th, and I'll do my best to get them all out the door before I continue tour on the 7th. If I run out of time, the rest of the records will be shipped as soon as I get back from tour. Hopefully you won't scratch your faces off waiting. Some of you have been waiting 16 years for this (myself included), and a few more weeks won't kill you. Such is D.I.Y.! If it's any consolation, it's possible that you might also receive one of my French-Canadian arm hairs or other random DNA stuck to the record box. I am not encouraging you to clone me, but if you do please raise me kindly and feed (new) me Lasagna and red wine. Thanks! SEBASTIEN, Ancitn
  6. I'm really enjoying this album now, it's been a grower for sure. Wasn't too impressed on first listen but very much warming to it.
  7. Yup, totally dig Warpaint & really liked the Right On! album from Jenny Lee too. Shipping from the official store is very reasonable considering it seems to be UK-based, so ordered the signed vinyl.
  8. Agreed, I heard the bonus CD of Deadwing before I got Lightbulb Sun. The vinyl versions of each album is fantastic, but now to my ears the biggest knock on both is that neither one contains the 'best' version of Shesmovedon!
  9. Many thanks for the links. Does anyone have a rough idea on numbers pressed?
  10. Bump - does anyone know of any other retailers with this one yet besides JPC?
  11. Nice, swap the order of Low and Station to Station and you have my top four! But yeah, very difficult question given the longevity of the artist, the wide-ranging stylistic shifts over his career, and personal tastes of the listener.
  12. I really don't have an issue with the only GITD record either, but certainly the weight of anecdotal evidence seems damning. Still love Moon Safari and will hope to pick this one up!
  13. I have a pink version, and had never noticed the ring nor any playback issues. Playing it now, I can definitely see the ring. And, there is scratchiness in the left channel just before and during the part where the stylus runs over the ring. I can no longer access OPs sound file, but it's not a huge issue for me - one of those things I would have otherwise put down to the charm of vinyl. But seems as though it could be the case with every copy. One of the most treasured pieces in my collection nonetheless.
  14. Same here with my OG red, which sounds great. Very tempted by the clear reissue for completion's sake, and of course curious to hear it. I don't see all that many on ebay...but I do see the prices remain ridiculous. Will be interesting to see where the one starting at GBP 9.99 finishes. https://www.ebay.com/itm/PORCUPINE-TREE-DEADWING-2005-RED-VINYL-2LP-POSTER-STEVEN-WILSON-PROG-ROCK/282767122066?hash=item41d63bde92:g:p~QAAOSwevlaLQuM
  15. She doesn't seem too enthused on the plastic sleeve herself.
