Wichita's putting these out so there's a strong possibility they'll be available in US shops.

Who knows if this is correct (and even if it is it doesn’t mean it won’t change), but the BV article about these from today states: “Unfortunately these Wichita reissues are UK only, but their web store does ship to North America.”

i was going to wait but I went ahead and just ate the higher shipping.

Damn.  That would probably explain – if true – why literally no one has this up after 10 hours or so.  Usually at least someone – Bull Moose, Zia, etc. – will have an early morning drop available by noon, if they're getting them.

Yeah, I spent the whole day intermittently  checking my email / Reddit expecting to start seeing the flood of US shops listing it.

Thanks!  I’ll go ahead and grab the UK version and then see if they eventually have US stores.

The Ride reissues are up at Rough Trade NY

https://www.roughtrade.com/us/ride/4-ep-s

https://www.roughtrade.com/us/ride/nowhere-reissue

https://www.roughtrade.com/us/ride/going-blank-again-reissue

I ordered from Norman Records in the UK instead. It was a couple of dollars cheaper than Rough Trade and I know they'll remove the records from the sleeves when they pack up the records. Rough Trade won't do that so there's no guarantee they won't arrive with seam splits.

Yeah, my order from the UK is basically the same price as rough trade NY so I’m just leaving it alone.

Yeah Norman Records was cheaper for me as well.

Their (RT NYC) mark-up was pretty crazy. I get that it was an import but damn.

I’ve felt that way about their prices in general for a lot of their stock, especially over the last couple of years.  Notably for imports, yeah.

Is Norman even cheaper than the Ride webstore?  I guess if you buy all 3 and opt for untracked shipping, it could break down a bit bettter.  Norman has better sticker prices but the Ride shop had better shipping, I remember thinking they were sort of comparable.

RT also have the annoying tendency of canceling your order at the last minute due to “unforeseen stock shortages”.  I’ve had better luck with Norman’s packaging jobs over the years too.

Fucking screwed me over on the Mogwai EP box and never let me know. I had to email them and find out on my own. Haven’t seen how much it’s going for now, but that one hurt.

Rough Trade fuckin suck balls. Even if there was real savings I'd avoid them.

I do fuck with many of their exclusives, I like the fact that I won’t have to pay for these until Nov, and they’ve been good about the weird shipping fuck ups they’ve had. But yeah, they pretty bad. 
 

I need all three those and have to figure out what’s best for my poor bank account. These ain’t cheap.

Even here in the UK RT is usually a couple of £ more expensive than everywhere else on most releases (their total UK sticker price on these 3 Ride releases is £8 higher than Norman & £6 higher than Resident).

I've never had any problems with orders from the UK store that the NYC store seems notorious for though so I still order from them when I have to. Exclusives mainly or taking advantage of their no charge till shipping policy to lock in a preorder if I'm light on cash till payday! 

Got the Ride releases on order from Resident with local pick up.

Buying all three from Norman + paying the extra £5 for tracked *still* cost me £10 less than buying from Ride directly.

(also, these are pricey and I know Norman is solid/dependable in shipping stuff to me and getting it here unharmed; Ride might be perfectly fine as well but I don't want to find out different here in like 12 months...)
