Re: Underated tracks

Plane Plane Against The Grain is one i can't stop re-playing when going through the fabulous "Song For Ships.." album. simply incredible, the keyboard / vocal melody just pleases my brain down to the quantum froth level.

Re: Sing To God - double vinyl

the edition of 200 has me a bit worried I may not be able to snag one.

any ideas as to what time these may get posted to the web shop? I'll be attempting to furiously refresh the page on my phone while at work and *actually* working.

Re: Melvins / Napalm Death Single

i wanted to not like the ND cover.. but damn they did a fine job! i agree the vocals are a bit aggro but it'd have been even more off-putting if he imitated Tim.

Re: AN IMPORTANT ANNOUNCMENT

picked up everything on CD that I didn't already have, but passed on most all of the vinyl since I had it all (except the Susannah 7" and Is This The Life 7"), and the a shirt. Cost a pretty penny but I didn't even think twice. CARDIACS stuff is pretty much one of the only bands who drive ...

Re: Real rarities on ebay

good god, thats one of my main wants! someone must be delighted.

i feel like, in these cases, sometimes people just acquire huge collections and figure a CD single they haven't heard of can't fetch more than a meager few bucks.
