Please let the unknown be Murlocs Loopholes and Gizz Willoughby's Beach!  Also curious how much the OG's of what's being repressed will drop.

Unlikely they will drop substantially, due to the low pressing number and the ravenous fan base, however we have seen them soften some since the bootlegs. I personally am only missing loopholes

Around 330 cheese and 170 green in stock, though according to Pirate’s Press both are /500 so it wouldn’t surprise me if an allotment of green was reserved for Aussie record stores and the band. 

 

I went with the cheese and sauce because I like how it looks with the LP art.

Only I variant is 500, the other two are 1000. It's not FLT042.

Oh my bad, which is which then? Cheese says 500 on the page. Is that the most limited?

Looks like it, as that's what it says on the page. I'm guessing the 3rd variant will be a retail version. I got one of each to be safe! :)

So FLT042 will most likely be Amyl & The Sniffers then. I'm waiting for that new ORB album...that I do want!

 

PS Spoon, I see you're from Sydney. Dunno if you follow the AFL footy at all, I do and love it, gonna be great match between the two Sydney teams this weekend! I'm rooting for Giants! :D

I coulda sworn I read somewhere someone spoke to Amyl and they said they didn’t have an album ready yet... who knows though. Orb test pressings are already in according to Flightless so I’m sure that isn’t too far off along with Gizz reissues. 

 

As far as AFL goes I’m more of a Swans guy, will be curious to see how the two teams match up!

Anybody's game I guess, the Giants have been superb of late, but boy, have they racked up a hellava injury list or what?! It'll be a tight one, their last meeting, a few months ago, was very tight, Swans just pinched it by a couple of points, if I recall.

 

As for FLT042, with only 2 500 copy variants on that one, can't see who else it could be. I thought FLT041 was gunna be Amyl et al. We shall see!

What is curious, is that Pirate Press state that the completion date for FLT042 3 variants are on 20th Sept. currently, but Flightless are shipping on the 11th?

I actually think this must be FLT-042, likely some green will be sent to JB hi-fi. Perhaps FLT-041 will be ORB? with the numbers I think FLT-040 will be a new Murlocs, or I hope at least!!!!

The centre labels for Baked Beans releases, quite clearly show it to be FLT041 though!

I had to really zoom up the page to see that though! Unless it's an error on their part, but I doubt it.

 

Given that Baked Beans is fronted by the drummer from The Murlocs & that Gizz have been touring for most of the year so far, I'd be surprised if The Murlocs found time to make another album! I had hope that there might be another Gizz album possibly, maybe an live one, as they haven't released one of those yet.

I did, out of town though so I haven’t had a chance to download just yet.

 

11 copies left of the cheese!

Sold out! Only 50 copies of the green one left, but I don't think Flightless put the whole 1000 up of the green. Probably half, maybe the rest will go to retail or sell on gigs. I wonder when that 3rd variant will show up & what the pattern will be?

Was it the confirmation email or a separate email?

I got both. Check in the other email inboxes, if you have them.  I use Google email & I found my download link email, in one of the other inbox 'files' not the main one!

Thanks.  I don’t have a separate email and in my confirmation email the downloads dont how up.  This happened when I bought the last King Gizzard album too.  Flightless sent me a link after I told them about it but I wonder why this keeps happening to me

Don't know, what email service do you use? Sometimes it does take a day or two for my download emails to show up, maybe just wait a bit & if it shows.

Will be hoping they drop the reissues all together on the same day rather than spreading them out so postage isn't so much of an issue

I hope not, I can't afford to buy all the different variants in one go! I think they'll be staggered, going by Pirate Press Job Status completion dates.

Yes, it would be a larger up front cost, but if you live State-side you will save a shit ton on combined shipping. Honestly, the shipping is the sole reason I’ve never ordered from Flightless. I’d really appreciate being able to buy all these records and spread the cost of shipping over a larger order.
