Tsk, 3rd thread for them...I would expect this from a Newbie, but you, HEB?!?

HEB  said about 7 years ago:

Look - it's all properly hyperlinked and everything.

Anyway, this is The Official * thread
* whatever that means

Reverb  said about 7 years ago:

with every new thread i grow sookier...

HEB  said about 7 years ago:

So the two BIG questions are:
1. How many nights will they play? There are 8 days between the London and Manchester shows
2. Will they do warm-up shows?* There are a few ATP events they could play unannounced, just to make sure their official return is 'just so'...

esquared  said about 7 years ago:

i am goddamn green with envy. i hope they make it down here soon.

Reverb  said about 7 years ago:

waits for MBV to be added to the Explosions ATP which he can actually go to

nicko_mcbrain  said about 7 years ago:

nicko_mcbrain  said about 7 years ago:

daveyaviator  said about 7 years ago:

It's a cruel, cruel summer to be saving your pennies nicko - good luck with that...a very worthy cause, though

tugboat  said about 7 years ago:

fucking hell... maybe we should all fucking move to England.

columbo  said about 7 years ago:

well - i still don't believe this thread even exists. I'll come back in a minute and see if it's still here...then it's straight to the travel agent..

columbo  said about 7 years ago:

so what do you reckon kids?..a grey-power M&N road trip?

HEB  said about 7 years ago:

manchild  said about 7 years ago:

MarsAudiac  said about 2 years ago:

That's put kind of weirdly, like they're such arseholes that he stormed off in disgust or something, which apparently wasn't the case at all.

I always find it odd when people say things like tour companies ''reward the fans'' or when people level accusations at touring companies along the lines of ''You only care about money''

No shit, dudes!

Urquhart Bluff  said about 2 years ago:

Anyone received their MBV vinyl yet? I haven't.

JayBS  said about 2 years ago:

Mine arrived today. Postie just left it on the verandah. Luckily my housemate was home and spotted it before the sun cooked it.

bigdaddykane  said about 2 years ago:

Mine arrived today. Postie just left it on the verandah.

GrantleyBuffalo  said about 2 years ago:

Hopefully mine will arrive today. Postie will just leave it on the verandah.

At least it's not 38 degrees today, though.

Urquhart Bluff  said about 2 years ago:

Good. Hopefully mine will be left on the verandah too!

carwashhair  said about 2 years ago:

warped vinyl might straighten the sounds within...

CryMeARiver  said about 2 years ago:

Mine was also left on the verandah, some sort of Shieldsian conspiracy?
Sounds fucking great btw.

nexus  said about 2 years ago:

Mine arrived day before yesterday and yeah postie left it on the verandah, which is luckily shaded. now i need to buy an amp, speakers and a record player. i've not had one since the 80s

goingblank  said about 2 years ago:

I got mine in the mail today. As everyone's been complaining about on the band's site, it was packed in too large a box so everything was kind of rolling around inside. Despite that, no damage done though. The sleeve printing job looks really cheap, but the art's nothing to rave about anyway so who cares.

steveholt  said about 2 years ago:

Mine came with a split seam. Nothing shits me more. Not hard to take the vinyl out of the sleeve and put a bit of extra cardboard to stiffen the packaging let alone getting a box the right size.

Minimal effort with the sleeve, artwork pretty work, but it's still a great record so I suppose that's all that matters.

astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

Yeah, for a band that prides itself on sonic presentation this is one of the most perfunctory releases I've seen. Still, killer album and it's nice to hold the artwork. And 180gms of vinyl is 180gms of vinyl.

electricsound  said about 2 years ago:

mine was almost entirely undamaged! flabbergasted

electricsound  said about 2 years ago:

yeah the printing is appalling

astrousersasmind  said about 2 years ago:

It was almost like they waited 20 years then threw it together in 20 minutes.

sting-bono  said about 12 months ago:

Is it a 3 year course that takes 2 decades to do?

TheBigShip  said about 12 months ago:

Is it a 3 year course that takes 2 decades to do?


Urquhart Bluff  said about 12 months ago:

I'd boom tish you but I need two years to get the sound of the tish just right.

carwashhair  said about 12 months ago:
