in this thread...so many grown men butthurt about how a pop punk record looks.

Weird choice by Fat to put the box set link exclusively on their parler account.

I haven't been since before COVID but the experience was always fine for me. Every time I went they had plenty to go around. Sometimes they'd even have leftovers from the previous opening. It's a great experience, I recommend going if you can. 

Is it usually limit one item per person?

We're in the middle of a pandemic. Do you think when they sent these records to be pressed they knew that there were going to be no flights from Europe to the US? Do you think GZ is pressing records at full capacity? I'm sure Fat also is working packing up records with a smaller crew to be safe. And it's NOFX. It's probably 2 dudes in a warehouse packing up 10,000 records. Any of their other bands it's probably 1,000 and takes them a few days.

you were very close to being 100% correct. thank you.

the one correction: It's one woman in a warehouse filling the thousands of records. she's going as fast as she can and I'm going in and helping when I can but it's gonna take time.

Looks like the storefront is SF will be opening on 10/23 for store exclusives. Might make the drive, how is the experience, typically? Do they usually have enough to go around? 

make the drive. everyone lines up outside distanced from each other. mask required. we'll have enough of the newest store editions for everyone. also, after around 4pm it's pretty slow so ya know, no lines or people!

make sure you leave a tip in paypal when you order and they might even customize your mailer!

My fault on Leche Con Carne I thought I got it but I didn’t and they’re coming from Europe GZ as well. The Europe people got it a while back.

 

Forgot to check the Fat order statuses.

Yes, still coming from Europe but not from GZ anymore. Fat Wreck switched to Takt Direct. Way better quality - particularly the lacquer cut/mastering/sound which is terrible when cut in-house by GZ. But also the cover has a higher quality than the GZ ones.

Fat is one of the most reputable companies I have ever ordered from. Delays happen, out of their control, but I have always received my orders. Zero issues after years of ordering from them. I fully back Fat Wreck mail order 100%.

 

Can't say the same for SRC.

Not Takt Direct..., they are pressed by Packaged Sounds who use the same cutting lathe as TD. I agree on sound and sleeve quality.

I wasn’t bashing Fat. I’ve ordered from them for over 10 years. 🤷‍♂️

Thank you for this correction. Does Packaged Sounds own record presses or is it a broker/manufacturer and uses TD as the pressing plant? Or are the record presses co-owned/shared by both companies?
