NO WHITE STRIPES LP.....YET
XL have announced that the new White Stripes album "Get Behind Me Satan", due for release in the first week of June, will not be available on LP, at least for the time being. The reason for this is that Jack and Meg have an ambitious project in mind for later in the year.
Once their summer tour dates have been and gone, they hope to go back in to the studio and re-record the album, live in the studio, in one take! The result of this session will be cut for the LP release. First though, Jack and Meg need a little time on the road so that they can perfect the live arrangements of the new material.

It's an interesting concept, and the first time we've heard of different recordings for each format. We just hope the band find the time (and the inclination) to go back in the studio after a busy summer, and not let us vinyl fans down!

All existing pre-orders will be kept, but we won't be taking any more orders until we hear of a definite release date.

There are many albums I'd like bands to re-record live...

There are many albums that bands have re-recorded live.

There are many albums I'd like bands to erase.

wait, so what if we already own a copy of the existing version on vinyl (which i do)? does that mean those ones are going to be worth lots of money someday?

don't like to mention it, but the new tMG album is two different versions of (mostly) the same songs, home-recorded on LP & studio-recorded on CD

chuck, guard it with your life! i don't know how many they made, but it couldn't have been that many. it will definitely be worth money.

something tells me the value of white stripes lps is not going to appreciate in the medium or long term. sell! sell! sell!

given that the "new" white stripes album will be going for £4 in the MVE bargain basement by the end of summer, they might as well release it on eight-track cartridge.

im actually surprised the WS havent yet released anything on 78. i would have thought that would have happened ages ago, what with their love for 'pure' blues and musical museum pieces.

Apparently they're going to re-record the album as a player piano roll. Listeners can have fun punching additional holes in the roll at random and see how "goofy" this makes the music sound!

Marcello Carlin (nostudium), Monday, 6 June 2005 09:06 (sixteen years ago) link

apparently theyre going to dispense with recordings of any sort so anyone that wants to hear it can call a number and have the stripes arrive in their living room to play it live!

ppp, Monday, 6 June 2005 09:09 (sixteen years ago) link

On one-string tea-chest bass and washboard!
