    Pretty much everyone got SBB and TBIAPB. There's a story there. When SBB played at the Hardback for the first time, the band playing before them was TBIAPB. It was the "bike" show... and TBIAPB played forever. Late night jams... late night jams...

    We are kicking around doing another 5-12"-for-$20 grab bag with all different records inside (in time for the holidays / gift giving / the like). Too soon?

    This is correct.
     
    To clarify: the label is still a label. You can still mailorder and / or order stuff for your distro. Instead of thousands of titles, it will soon be a couple hundred.
     
    The distro: we ran it for 20 years and that's a long time. It was a huge success and achieved far more than we originally envisioned, as well as fostering other people's labels, businesses, and even a fest! We provided health care. We did it all. Now we want to focus on the label (and other interests). 
     
    10 LPs + larger mailer box = 6 pounds. That's the weight I put in the listing. No padding for fees as it's a flat-deal. If it's $60 for overseas shipping, I suspect that splitting will be $30 each. There would be extra labor (time), extra tape, and an extra box ($1.50), so we would have to add $5 for that... so you would be right back at $60.
     
    It would be WAY BETTER for overseas friends to pool their orders together and write us. We can ship 90 records to Europe pretty cheap via other delivery companies. But then you have to be motivated and have a bunch of friends who are equally motivated. Or maybe you run a distro? You can still order a bunch of grab bags.

    Interesting. Did you write to [email protected] and mention that you received a damaged jacket, send a photo of the vinyl, or ask any form of polite question, directly? If so, did he not respond withing a day or two with an equally polite, rather helpful note? Did he not answer your questions, offer to mail you a replacement jacket or any other kind of out-of-pocket solution that cost you not a dime?
     
    Or... did you get your nose out of joint and make a post here, casting aspersions? Was the box flimsy and packed poorly... or was it heavy weight with extra cardboard / filler? Did the USPS damage a perfectly reasonably packed box, perhaps? Do you live in Chicago, an apartment complex, or in any other situation where there was anyone handling the box, post USPS?
     
    We have received (as far as I am aware) exactly zero messages from people with damaged Ship Thieves records. That is nice, but when shipping 250 records... you'd expect one or two to get sat on by USPS, although they are generally rather kind in their handling overall.
     
    The bottom line is that you are bummed because you brought to the table your love for Wollard and Ship Thieves, which of course we share. It's important to you... and you were looking forward to a certain experience, opening your box and casting eyes on your new record for the first time. That is understandable... and I salute you!
     
    Allow us to help you. Drop a note to [email protected]
     
    Save the drama for offline, please. And perhaps consider that most labels releasing a pretty-limited-version of a new album by a pretty-well-regarded band would have sold it for $5 to $11 more, if not made it a fixed part of a $50 bundle. You're welcome!

    I dropped off 200 test pressings at Arrow's Aim last night at 8PM. The store  opens at 12:00 noon today and is open 12-8, everyday.
     
    Also spotted on the counter... a box of records that belong to Chris Wollard. Lots of HWM rarities and other bands he was in, like Cro(w)s LPs, etc.

    Just go to ARROW'S AIM. (Subtle record store pimping, there... did you notice?)
     
    Thems will haveth NO IDEA stuffs there! They "may" even have a few potentially "unexpected" ultra-limited records, leftovers, and (most certainly) a couple hundred TEST PRESSINGS for sale.*
     
    * CRUSADES needs to record. Let's get fancy!
     
    ARROW'S AIM will NOT have any of the mailorder-only records at the store... like the limited-to-100 colors of: RADON / WORTHWHILE WAY, RADON / SHALLOW CUTS, KINDLING "Galaxies" 12"EP, BASEMENT BENDERS "Lydiad" LP+7"... Those are going to sell out via mailorder. Just so you know / FYI. That said, there MAY BE other colors at AA that are "exciting" to some "protozoa and other single-celled creatures" as well as record nerds and barre-chord enthusiasts.
     
    NOTE: This year No Idea will celebrate it's second anniversary of NOT doing the parking lot sale. Go to ARROW'S AIM instead. The lines are shorter, they are open longer hours, they have AIR CONDITIONING, and --get this-- they have like 20,000 used records that will melt your minds. And a few thousand new-release records too. In fact, I'm going to go there right now and buy all the good stuff first! Sorry!
