  • Artisan vinyl nonsense

    http://www.theguardian.com/music/201...a-lp-lazaretto



    and encased 7-inch singles within 12-inch albums that need to be destroyed to access the secret record.

    If only all one-trackers were like this.

    I'm no fan or expert on Jack and his music and record label, but I do find the constant flow of gimicky vinyl releases a bit annoying now.

    Does he release normal records anymore, if he did they would be like finding a private press record that isn't signed.

    Could it possibly be because the music isn't very good that he needs the gimicks to sell them?

      Does seem a little bit too much. I mean, I quite like the idea of it looking like shellac but if it's only one side then the effect is kinda lost. I reckon would have been better to do one trick per record and make it a good one but I guess I wouldn't be buying it either way so my opinion has limited value.

          The word 'artisan' is surely sorely misused in this context. These are still mass produced items, regardless of the epic degree of crass crinkum-crankum crammed into 'em.

                This fancy stuff has the desired effect on some people. I once had a double album of White Stripes where one disc was red wax and the other was white wax and I had it in my box of lp's at the local markets for $50.00. This 30-something guy came up and looked at it and looked like he had creamed his jeans when he pulled the 2 discs out. He literally RAN to the auto-teller to withdraw the $50.00 and ran back to buy it.

                    Thanks Sonovox - I've learn't a new word today - going to try and drop that one into conversation at the very next viable opportunity.

                        you can.

                        "edit post"> "go advanced" (bottom LHS, below the edit box) then the title of YOUR thread should show up as editable, just above the main tex-edit box.
