PO Now - Elastica S/T Reissue

Recommended Posts

Elastica's self-titled debut LP is getting a repress out 17th November.  Looking at the description on Rough Trade it is the same as this years RSD release except the bonus 7" flexidisc is black instead of red.  Not seen any pressing numbers for this release yet.

19.38 quid at Juno Records but they don't do preorder sales. EDIT: I've been trying to get my hands on this for 2 years/2 RSDs. This is a top priority reissue. I wish they would reissue the BBC comp and The Menace (with all the bonus tracks) down the line.

Also available on Norman Records for £22.99 - https://www.normanrecords.com/records/164305-elastica-elastica

 

Only really got into Elastica in the past couple of months as had seen them compared to a lot of modern day bands that I'm into, was gutted when I saw the prices the LP (both original and any reissues) were going for on Discogs so this is a very welcome reissue.  Hoping for The Menace too but ti doesn't seem to get the same recognition as the debut from what I've seen so not sure how likely that'll be.

Damn, the only viable option now that Juno ran out at under £21 is Norman Records at £22.99

Yeah, but that is a great shop.

 

Phil and the gang always treat me well, and they know how to package a record for overseas shipping.

 

Worth the extra few pounds.

Back up at Juno! Total price plus shipping added up to 22.98 for me which was Norman's base price so I cancelled my Norman order.

I would buy a reissue of The Menace. I would also buy a reissue of the BBC  Sessions, even though they barely sounded that different live. Finally, there's just enough remixes, b-sides and rarities to make a compilation LP. To be honest I would have loved all of that and the self-titled in a box set. Maybe in 2020 once the 25th anniversary rolls around?

You know if you e-mail Norman with the link showing the “Juno” price, they should match it for you.

I let them know in my cancellation request that they're welcome to price-match. They decided to cancel instead.

How is the sound quality for this reissue? I had heard mixed reviews for the RSD pressing from Rough Trade (some copies were skipping also) so I'm wondering if this a newly pressed batch...has anyone encountered any issues with their copy? I'm wondering how it compares to the original 1995 UK or US vinyl pressings.

You know what, I asked them to price match the new Current 93 “Thunder Perfect Mind” reissue on purple to the price on David’s website, and they didn’t do that either.

 

Thank you for telling me that. I think their “price matching” offer is false.  :rolleyes:

 

However, I still like the shop, and their “super strong” packaging option.
