Just got my hands on all this stuff…! Pretty much all of it got delivered to my mums over the past couple of months so it wasn’t all just one massive blowout. Got some cool rare stuff - the new Radiohead remix 12” (ltd. to 2,000), Melvins Vs Minneapolis (ltd. to 666, signed by Buzz and Dale), Melvins Endless Residency box set (ltd. to 50 per city - I have #46 from Austin, Texas), Melvins / JSBX 7” (ltd. to 800), Mondo Generator 7” (ltd. to 300 - I have #97).
Also got heaps of Black Moth Super Rainbow stuff - reissues of their albums, the furry bag version of Eating Us (that’s the grey lump of fur on the bottom right) and a few of the members’ solo albums/side projects. Of course my Boris stuff finally came and I finally got my hands on an Elysian Fields CD. It feels like Christmas.
Oh, and Graveface sent me some funny stuff in with my CDs - some pages from books, a thing of orange sherbet and two pieces from a jigsaw puzzle… Not to mention ‘Freddy points’, which when you collect a certain amount you can exchange for free CDs and vinyl! I think I’m one away from being able to get two CDs or a double LP… Cool!
Also got some posters - the Justice 12” has a massive poster in it, as does Boris’ Attention Please, and I got a Heavy Rocks poster sent with my stuff too (I got the ultimate bundle so I got two t-shirts and the coloured versions of the vinyl). Graveface also sent a poster for the Dandelion Gum reissue which is cool.
I’m still waiting on some Mark Lanegan bits, the Flaming Lips / Prefuse 73 EP, Black Angels record store day LP, another Boris album and the LA version of the Melvins Endless Residency set…
So I should probably slow down a bit on the music buying for a while… It’s kind of easy to forget how much stuff you’ve been getting when it all gets delivered to a different address to the one you actually live at.
Going to be doing a lot of listening…
