Ive heard of gold discs being played before....as long as the grooves were still grooves ;)

what are you going to do with multiple copies? I could buy a can of gold spray paint and a cheap B&Q frame and knock one up for less than a tenner lol

"Limited to 50 only" :D

do they really think they would be able to shift that many? LOL

if you took out the disc played it, it would probably be some shitty punk album or something. Not ExEl at all.....!!

I just realised......why would ZTT be able to release Outpost? I have no idea why, but after Pacific 98, the bands releases are not on ZTT (did they jump/were they pushed?). Its not theirs to release, lol.... and speaking of ZTT - i just bought my first Art Of Noise album. How slow i am, this is nic...

808

It makes no difference, record shops are dead anyway. HMV are shrinking their dance section weekly, it halves in size every few months :D They will not go out of business, but the sale of back-issue albums will make an ever decreasing slice of their profit pie. About two 808 albums a year are sold i...

WOW!

Personally, i would just love to see the vinyl-only stuff "iPod-ready". Thats the one thing that fascinates me. Why put US90 tracks on the 90 bonus disc? US90 itself is easy to get hold of, "Kinky National" isnt exactly special enough to get bonus disc status, nor are any of the others. In fact, my ...

Olympic State Original Mix

i just bought a copy of the promo vinyl containing this mix [SAM 702], from gemm.com. Good to finally have it, a decent track - although i guess i was disappointed how little it varied from other versions! I thought it would be much more stripped down.... Also [finally] got the Tommy Boy release of ...

The Cocteau Twins

highly random topic.....i just wondered what anyone else here thought of this band........ I discovered them a couple of months ago when i heard the track "Lazy Calm" on the Fragile State compilation "Just Got Home". That blew me away, a feeling ive never experienced since hearing Pacific state some...
