Hot Water Music - The fire... 7" is up.

Recommended Posts

bundles are pain, but i suppose the margin's higher.... I have a bad feeling the shirts are going to be crap.... Distressed see through fabric with too short sleeves all up your armpits and the like.

plus, i think the shirts may increase the possibility of warpage. They retain heat, which is usually against only one side of the record. The times i have gotten warped records has usually been been when they were packaged with shirts.

I emailed Jen @ NI and she said they wanted the whole first pressing to be a package w/ the shirt. But the second pressing will just be the 7". I'm just going to wait for that.

This seems like a giant money grab. Let's say it cost them about $5 to make the shirt which is reasonable, $3 to make the record, and $4 to ship it. That's $12 that it cost them to do this. That's a $14 dollar profit on a seven inch and a shirt!! For only two songs?!?! This is insane.
