why did i buy this Devo live lp?

nerve_pylon, Saturday, 21 April 2012 18:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

oh and i guess the one other RSD thing i want to snag and forgot to mention is that Mynah Birds 7"..

Stormy Davis, Saturday, 21 April 2012 18:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

I got the Pussy Galore single and the Lee Hazelwood, bought an extra Lee for my friend who had to work today.

was looking for the School Of Seven Bells and the Kate Bush but they are long gone or were never here.

still a Lee Perry for $30 sitting around if anyone is desperate for it, I'll try to check back here.

I also bought the new Dirty Three album and some great used stuff (Unrest, Severed Heads, Bogshed, Black Uhuru upgrade),

Yes. I want the lee perry. Waited an hour and missed out a my local.

brotherlovesdub, Saturday, 21 April 2012 19:35 (2 years ago) Permalink

Will gladly pay extra for it plus shipping. A+++ buyer :) / 100% positive rating on discogs etc. want the Keith Hudson too.

There was still a line out the door at 1:30 at Red Onion DC. Didn't go in -- SOM had a bunch of the cooler (if more common) stuff and was also doing a brisk business. The WTNG yacht rock comp is pretty good, only RSD item I got.

I'm still sort of conflicted about the whole thing: If this is needed to give indie shops a boost, then more power to them and make it happen. It keeps them open the other 51 Saturday for the folks not just chasing the eBay-focused stuff.

It looks like I was charged double the actual price for the Hazlewood LP, which isn't even an RSD exclusive. I guess it's nice to not have to wait for the price to get jacked up on ebay...

Definitely returning it, though.

Nobody at my store and no special items. Everything was ten percent off though; made off with a mint condition Womack & Womack promo LP.

They had a bunch of stuff at Record Surplus in Los Angeles, I grabbed the Feistodon 7", which is really all I was interested in. They had an Ozzy live single from the 80s, but *shrug*.

OK I will check, going out again soon and it's not out of the way.

thanks, scoping one on ebay right now. called every shop in town. would greatly appreciate it.

brotherlovesdub, Saturday, 21 April 2012 20:30 (2 years ago) Permalink

Didn't know about the Mynah Birds release - I've long been astonished this has gone unreleased for this long.

Also want the Shuggie Otis 45 with an unreleased song on it.

somebody snagged the Perry box, sorry! xp

tons of Dark Stars left though

torn on ordering a copy of the Lee Perry for $90. on one hand, i want it and don't think i'll get it cheaper. on the other, i hate people who buy shit to flip on ebay. the seller is affiliated with a record store. is there anyway to turn him in and get his store blacklisted from RSD releases?

brotherlovesdub, Saturday, 21 April 2012 21:31 (2 years ago) Permalink

Poked my head in the Reckless in Wicker Park and it was a total zoo.

There are like four copies of the Lee Perry here @ DustyGroove. I'll get you one, BLD. But I can't find the Dead thing anywhere! How about a three-way trade with Sleeve?!

Stormy Davis, Saturday, 21 April 2012 21:41 (2 years ago) Permalink

Otis Clay is killin it right now btw

Stormy Davis, Saturday, 21 April 2012 21:42 (2 years ago) Permalink

Grabbed:

Flaming Lips - Heady Fwends (anyone else who got it, check the runoff grooves for four secret messages) 2xLP
McLusky - Does Dallas LP
Devo - New Traditionalists Live 1981 2xLP
Sigur Ros - Hvarf Heim 2xLP
Bragg/Wilco CD/DVD

This year seemed a bit slight for me but no burning desire to buy any of those 6x45-inch things for insane prices. I can only buy Electric Warrior so many times y'know.

On the odd chance that there'll be a charred rib I can gnaw on while watching the band pack away their equipment, I'm heading over to my local now.

I picked up the Scratch set for ya, BL5. It was 30, I'll pm you later

2nd Hand Tunes was not busy, and they didn't have any RSD releases I wanted, but they did bring me a stool to stand on and I
* bought 4 good records
* had a nice convo with a young lady looking for Soft Machine records
* jib jabbed with the clerk about Tangerine Dream and awesome soundtracks, directed him to the copy of the Foxes sdtk sitting in his store

Good times so far, no mobs or elbows.

brotherlovesdub, Saturday, 21 April 2012 22:55 (2 years ago) Permalink

don't really care about a lot of the limited edition hoo hah, but have to admit that the dark star LP is a rad idea. they should just do a series of 25 of the best Dark Stars all on LP. it would sell!

"Lee Perry's Blackboard Jungle Dub issued for the first time ever in a 10" vinyl pressing. "

how is this a thing? i could probably press it up on MiniDisc and it would be "Lee Perry's Blackboard Jungle Dub issued for the first time ever in a MiniDisc pressing."

i don't get all this stuff at all.

Hit up End of an Ear and Waterloo Records here... got the School of Seven Bells and M83 45s, and the Captured Tracks Wake tribute 45, which isn't really an RSD exclusive. Would have liked the Beach House 45, but it was long gone by after lunch when we showed up. Some other stuff was still available but I saw the prices and was like go fuck yourself. $45 for 4x7" box set? A 7" single for $14? Single LP releases for $24? Come on.

got up early this morning, like around 7, got up to seattle by 8:30 or so. after i got there, i decided i just didn't want to deal with crowds, lol, so i spent the morning walking around and drinking coffee instead. nice day. finally made it to the record store at 11 or so, by which time there was still a decent (smallish) crowd and basically no super-snazzy swag left. some guy playing folky indie rock in the back when i got there, switched out for a synthpop dj after 20 minutes or so. pretty cool vibe, really.

i bought a cleaners from venus lp (never heard them before, they're great!), and a few used records, only spent about 30 bucks.

did anyone check out the feistodon?

Mordy, Saturday, 21 April 2012 23:45 (2 years ago) Permalink

Got into Cactus before the mid-day temp shutdown for the Evanescence (!?!?) meet'n'greet. Got the Buck Owens book, which was an ouchie $24.95, and the lady in front of me let me see her copy of the "Dark Star" album ($19.95 here).

I've missed the last few RSDs, and thus was sort of shocked how uncomfortable mere shopping was. This was already early afternoon and there were still people everywhere. There was a line running through the store, so you had to keep excuseing yourself to people just look in the racks. Eventually I just gave up and joined them. Made me miss the first couple years before it became a "thing" and the hang-out atmosphere was encouraged (all-day dj sets and instores, less "me-first" exclusives).

According to the Rough Trade East guys, the Flaming Lips, Bowie, and Kate Bush stuff sold out right away. I really wanted the Flaming Lips album, but I didn't get there at 8am, so I was SOL. The Cure reissues were £24.99, which seems a little steep - a lot of the classic reissue 7"s (Dead Boys, Flamin' Groovies, stuff like that) were £7, which is nuts, too.

yeah, the prices for some of this shit is ridiculous.

Here is a neat article partially about the guy whose pressing plant did the RSD Flaming Lips release.

I picked up the Unrest 7" box, walked toward the register and turned around and put it back. It was $53. Too much mulah for that one. I got the White Stripes 7", Lee Hazlewood, Mclusky, Flaming Lips 2lp, and that was it. Didn't really want anything else. I wish I could have seen that School of Seven Bells, but no luck.

does anyone know if there are plans to sell that flaming lips thing digitally later on or anything? or are we just going to have to wait until it inevitably gets uploaded?

Btw, I'm not sure how limited that boxset is, the one I had was numbered 24xx or so.
