I used to hate that record (cause it doesn't sound like Can, lol) but now that my taste is all balearic beardoed out I think it's awesome

dmr, Thursday, 10 July 2008 21:25 (thirteen years ago) link

label is fucking good

winston, Friday, 11 July 2008 04:21 (thirteen years ago) link

just heard that edit tiedye did of tom petty. love it.

t_g, Saturday, 12 July 2008 09:28 (thirteen years ago) link

The TieDye track is brilliant, by the way, by some distance the best thing I've heard on this label.

Matt DC, Saturday, 12 July 2008 16:12 (thirteen years ago) link

That record sounds so cool. I really want to go record shopping right now.

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 16:16 (thirteen years ago) link

Produced by KEVORKIAN?

this is great actually

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 16:18 (thirteen years ago) link

didn't mean to derail this into a Snake Charmer thread but it seemed on topic at the time :)

so all that stuff on Tiedye's page you can download free! very cool. I think the Italians 12" is out of print anyway (won't be re-pressed in case it attracts the wrath of Lars)

dmr, Saturday, 12 July 2008 16:27 (thirteen years ago) link

Actually Tiedye stuff is really cool, nice warm drum sound

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 16:34 (thirteen years ago) link

really dry sounding

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 16:34 (thirteen years ago) link

back to the matter at hand, did anybody snatch a copy of the after dark 3xlp??

winston, Saturday, 12 July 2008 19:07 (thirteen years ago) link

I had to stop being completist with them, already bought the After Dark CD and have a couple of the 12"s so I took a pass on that one. ditto the Tiedye 12", I saw it in a store once but it was 10 bucks for a one-sided record. I do like the track though.

(on the other hand I would buy an LP version of Glass Candy's "Beatbox" in a heartbeat to get Candy Castle and Digital Versicolor on vinyl ... )

dmr, Saturday, 12 July 2008 19:49 (thirteen years ago) link

DMR: That TieDie single is available on eMusic, FWIW.

Daniel, Esq., Saturday, 12 July 2008 19:50 (thirteen years ago) link

thx, I'm not subscribed there but I got it off their website (the link in the first post)

dmr, Saturday, 12 July 2008 19:56 (thirteen years ago) link

back to the matter at hand, did anybody snatch a copy of the after dark 3xlp??

That's what I bought a couple days ago. I figured they were all like that...?

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 20:53 (thirteen years ago) link

some of them are CDs.

jed_, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:15 (thirteen years ago) link

if you go straight to the source, some of the stuff is cheaper

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:17 (thirteen years ago) link

I didn't realize IDIB was part of Troubleman, cool!

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:22 (thirteen years ago) link

yeah its a sub label. Ordered loads off TMU in the past.

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:26 (thirteen years ago) link

It's such a great label, they're good to order off then? I've been wanting this Religious knives thing for months, and I'm loaded right now. Well by my standards.

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:30 (thirteen years ago) link

I've never had any problems, some southern lord board/dffd and vlv posters hold grudges from long ago over them, but i know the mailorder has been ok the last 3 years or so since i started ordering

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:34 (thirteen years ago) link

the harvey milk lp they put out is one of my favourites

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:36 (thirteen years ago) link

cool, i'll check it out!

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:38 (thirteen years ago) link

Its nothing like Italians Do It Better stuff obviously.
Woods, Growing, Warmer Milks, Isis Live 2 are other really good things I ordered from them that I can remember offhand.

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:42 (thirteen years ago) link

looking at http://www.troublemanunlimited.com/store/lp.php reminds me there's still quite a few vinyl i still need to pick up actually.

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:43 (thirteen years ago) link

That link is gonna be HELL on my credit card.

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:51 (thirteen years ago) link

You did notice that the cd section has a special offer on? (distro stuff doesn't count tho)
Im skint and cant afford anything but I just looked at the distro section and saw stuff i've been looking for ages to get.

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 21:55 (thirteen years ago) link

I can't really justify buying CD's anymore. Especially as trying to organise my CDs, I've discovered a LOT are missing.

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 22:00 (thirteen years ago) link

OUCH! Shipping is V. Expensive to Europe.

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 22:00 (thirteen years ago) link

I know. Relapse and Archive cd are the only place that isn't these days.

Herman G. Neuname, Saturday, 12 July 2008 22:02 (thirteen years ago) link

way cheaper if I buy it off amazon anyway...

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 22:04 (thirteen years ago) link

if you take postage into account

I know, right?, Saturday, 12 July 2008 22:05 (thirteen years ago) link

Where in europe are you? TMU sell way too much you will never get on Amazon (the stuff I want anyway)

Herman G. Neuname, Sunday, 13 July 2008 18:55 (thirteen years ago) link

Ireland, Amazon have the Religious Knives thing anyway, I'm dying to hear that through (I like this band)

I know, right?, Sunday, 13 July 2008 19:33 (thirteen years ago) link

Rubies sound like my ideal right now but so far just basing that on the Tiedeye remix and stevieT's description of them to me earlier

blueski, Sunday, 13 July 2008 22:37 (thirteen years ago) link

I like what I've heard from this label, but only in small doses. I'd like to hear some of these tracks within the context of a set that also included other stuff.

Moodles, Sunday, 13 July 2008 22:43 (thirteen years ago) link

you should suggest that to them!

s1ocki, Sunday, 13 July 2008 22:44 (thirteen years ago) link

I like how they just emerged with this whole aesthetic. They just seemed so fully formed with those Glass Candy tracks. The noir disco and girly album art, unpretentions cover verions. Particularly loving the Chromatics I'm on fire today.

I know, right?, Sunday, 13 July 2008 22:57 (thirteen years ago) link

guys i think you killed the tiedye site

jabba hands, Monday, 14 July 2008 00:15 (thirteen years ago) link

Did you order anything from TMU I know, right??

Herman G. Neuname, Monday, 14 July 2008 08:28 (thirteen years ago) link

I was about to when I looked at how strong the euro is against the dollar (it really is crazy now) and decided to go for it, then realized they charge $12 PER ITEM, which is crazy, the postage was $43, slightly more than the three records I was gonna buy. But now I'm thinking about how that would probably add up to that much if I somehow found it in ireland anyway....

And looking again, its cheaper to buy from TMU than amazon actually.

I know, right?, Monday, 14 July 2008 09:45 (thirteen years ago) link

Its not post-paid prices on TMU is it? surely there's an option for multiple items? You could maybe email their mail order and see if you get a reply.

Herman G. Neuname, Monday, 14 July 2008 11:43 (thirteen years ago) link

I doubt it, because they charge basically twice as much delivery for double LPs. Basically, whatever you get charged for items, it seems you're gonna get charged that same amount additionally for delivery.

I know, right?, Monday, 14 July 2008 12:03 (thirteen years ago) link

Is there a similar thread, or anywhere to talk about Permanent Vacation records?

I am using your worlds, Monday, 14 July 2008 12:52 (thirteen years ago) link

Is that this label? Waht is good? (n.1)

_________________________
(n.1) I don't see a thread for that label in the search engine, so you may have to start one.

Daniel, Esq., Monday, 14 July 2008 12:58 (thirteen years ago) link

Thats the one. Waht is good? I'd start with this, especially the Holy Ghost! remix,

http://www.discogs.com/release/1212370

and I like this too.

http://www.discogs.com/release/1165952

Maybe it would be better covered by the Balearic thread?

I am using your worlds, Monday, 14 July 2008 13:01 (thirteen years ago) link

So, turns out I was broke because I was spending all my money on rent for an apartment I had long since vacated due to not fucking cancelling standing order. I am now due 1200 from my ex-landlord. Which is nice. This might be a sign to splurge.

I know, right?, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 00:53 (thirteen years ago) link

watching me commit to a transaction in realtime is a long and tedious affair.

I know, right?, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 00:54 (thirteen years ago) link

thread delivers.
had no idea re the ILM vs IDIB connections.
to have a couple of tracks on such a seminal compilation like AD vol 1 is quite a thing.
and yeah, as others have said, they are cracking tracks CJV.
been loving AD vol 3 today.

mark e, Saturday, 3 April 2021 16:55 (three months ago) link

There’s other connections. Mike might deny it but I’d say I contributed a great deal to mike and by extension probably Jonny’s interest in italo. I mean they both like to deny the influence of Italo on Italians do it better but that’s just silly anyway.

dan selzer, Saturday, 3 April 2021 17:12 (three months ago) link

xpost Thanks fellow ILMers. Making hearts sing is what it’s all about ! Very happy to know the music means something to you!

SQUIRREL MEAT!! (Capitaine Jay Vee), Saturday, 3 April 2021 17:30 (three months ago) link

late to the convo, but after dark vol 1 is connected to a lovely time in my life and "pegaso" in particular is connected with a special memory of playing it at one of the first big parties i ever DJ'd, i have incredible images in my mind of my friends dancing to that song as fog and light spill out of the back of a moving truck in the woods :)
