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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

some of them are CDs.

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

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

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

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

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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

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

cool, i'll check it out!

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

That link is gonna be HELL on my credit card.

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

OUCH! Shipping is V. Expensive to Europe.

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

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

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

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

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

if you take postage into account

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

you should suggest that to them!

s1ocki, Sunday, 13 July 2008 22:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

guys i think you killed the tiedye site

jabba hands, Monday, 14 July 2008 00:15 (nine years ago) Permalink

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

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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

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

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 (nine years ago) Permalink

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


and I like this too.


Maybe it would be better covered by the Balearic thread?

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.

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

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

to be sure

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

I hope you get your money back

Herman G. Neuname, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 01:06 (nine years ago) Permalink

Well I'll wait till then to buy, obv. I've got a paper trail of emails and they're a well known auctioneers, so if they fuck me over, I'll just ring a daytime radio show. That's how we do things here. I think.

I know, right?, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 01:07 (nine years ago) Permalink

can anyone YSI the free Tiedye track? site is still down..

jabba hands, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 02:27 (nine years ago) Permalink

this blog has 2 of the tracks that were up, but not the rubies remix:

t_g, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 08:01 (nine years ago) Permalink

yo, rubies rmx

yungblut, Tuesday, 15 July 2008 08:12 (nine years ago) Permalink

admittedly both groups are hit and miss live ... but i never felt the lifeless and inert thing from gc and chromatics, in fact it's quite the opposite. 04 era gc demo of "life after sundown" is still one of the most swoon-worthy and vibrant songs for me.

there used to be a fansite which had an article that expressed it nicely ... i still have a quote ...

"... (they) take signifiers of feelings and abstract them into pure textures ... Glass Candy give the impression of not believing in love, but they still //bleed// it."

jaime, Wednesday, 16 July 2008 06:46 (nine years ago) Permalink

two months pass...

so nite jewel has a split with glass candy on IDIB and an album on Human Ear coming out. I really like the two demos on the Human Ear page. Fuzzy and pretty and cool.

I liked the Invisible Conga People 12" at the start of the year - particularly Dazed Cable. Anyone know if they've got anything coming soon?

Treblekicker, Thursday, 25 September 2008 22:12 (nine years ago) Permalink

one month passes...

I don't think I "get" Nite Jewel

As influences, she has cited Chris Barbosa -era dance floor greats Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam, Sa-Fire and Debbie Deb

I guess that makes sense. I was gonna say the 12" sounds like a freestyle track at the wrong speed (sloooowwww)

dmr, Saturday, 15 November 2008 23:44 (nine years ago) Permalink

Friends of IDIB releases, I would like to share with you your new favorite song

baaderonixx, Wednesday, 19 November 2008 15:09 (nine years ago) Permalink

has anyone picked this glass candy comp that they talk abt here? http://vivaitalians.blogspot.com/2008/10/ton.html

t_g, Wednesday, 19 November 2008 15:19 (nine years ago) Permalink

not yet - but soon will

baaderonixx, Wednesday, 19 November 2008 15:21 (nine years ago) Permalink

Hmm... I like it, but I feel like it's too clean in some way. I like the imperfections - for lack of a better
word - in the IDIB stuff: The fact that the Glass Candy singer is kind of out of tune a lot of the time; the creepiness and dread in a lot of the Chromatics tunes; the lo-fi-ity of the Nite Jewel and a lot of the After Dark stuff. I even like the fake vinyl crackles they bust out - and normally I would absolutely hate that kind of affectation.

I really can't seem to find anything out there that's like the IDIB stuff at all, really - snatches of score from old Italian horror movies, maybe, but that's about it. Someone told me to check out Zombie Zombie, and I thought it was okay, but it was too clean too. I liked that Salem "Yes I Smoke Crack" ep - that was as close as I've gotten to something similar with that really unsettling, haunting vibe.
