I don't know what that means and I also don't know why I got so worked up. I hope the sarcasm was obvious.

Just left the facebook group, Clouds Hill should have never used it as they did imo. Don't like the vibe there at all anymore.

Facebook's dead anyway, the glorious coma is obv where it's at!

Spun FtM again the other day. As someone who never owned this one on vinyl prior to the boxset, the locked groove halfway through Cassandra is simply cool as fuck and I had no idea this was a thing. The one bar phrase fits perfectly into one cycle of the record. That's badass. Both times I've listened to it I let it play on a loop for like 2-3 minutes before stopping it.

 

Shame that there's been so much outrage over the individual release prices and the pressing issues with VMP, but I have no regrets on buying the boxset.

yea its so annoying right? I hope the next label Omar signs with after the inevitable CH fallout doesn't make the same mistake of engaging with TMV fans

I don't know, nothing really. It just felt like the vibe turned weird when someone that close to the band started using the complaining knitting circle to promote stuff. Like, "watch what you say." Plus the responses to some of the legitimate complaints left a sour taste in my mouth.

Someone else can put it better than me tbh, haha.

Ok, so here's me randomly browsing the liner notes of RATM's debut, first name on the band thanks list: Juan Alderete. What's up with that?

Juan talks about his old connection with RATM in the Dean Delray "Let There Be Talk" interview.

What's with CH getting into the Fb group? I mean, what did they do?

 

Johann of Clouds Hill was pretty active in the main TMV Facebook group as the boxset was being hyped.  Overall it was good vibes, but things went sour after it was discovered the advertised as 180 gram vinyl were in fact not 180 gram.  Also, a LOT of people were bitching about shipping issues which really were out of Johann's control in a lot of regards.  There was also a healthy amount of fussing over the cost of the boxset.

 

Johann didn't really help himself when he more or less told people to stop whining about the vinyl not being 180 gram despite it being advertised as such.  At that point Johann more or less walked away from the group.

 

I'll contend that Johann's reaction to the complaints about the vinyl weight was rather poor, but a lot of group members were throwing massive hissy fits and getting pretty shitty over the whole situation and the issue with shipping and cost.  

 

It's a bummer too because the group, more or less, was pretty decent and was a great place to educate new fans on bootlegs, the rare leaks, side projects, and band history.  Since the boxset dropped its basically shitty "it's happening" memes, people bitching over the vinyl, people whining they can't promote their band, and people endlessly talking about black midi.

Oh my god. I just received a confirmation that my CH Frances the Mute 3xLP has been shipped. Man, I'm so stoked and nervous! I just wish that it will arrive safely and undamaged. Tremulant EP did arrive without any damage whatsoever, but there's been so many fans and collectors complaining about that and DitC shipments arriving damaged that I'm just really nervous how this one will arrive. Being it a much thicker package, 3 LP, I really am "itchy". Well, here's to hoping it arrives safely.

Maybe if you add the 3LPs together it comes out at 180g.

Not trying to be a wet blanket but many vinyl I've ordered online have come damaged.  It's an inherent risk with trusting a couple hundred people to not fuck up your piece of cardboard.

Why is everyone so excited about that screenshot. It could be for a solo album that gets released in 2035. I mean Cedric himself said "tmv is on, we are in studio", see where are we 2-3 years later. Same place

Sigh We've been through this Andrew. He didn't say that. He said they had been jamming, or words to that effect. That they'd been playing together, not that they were in the studio recording.

No, you're definitely right, I now realize that my post might've sounded like I've never experienced that before, which is not true. Out of all the 150 LPs I own a vast majority was ordered online and shipped to me and of that bulk, I'd say that a good 30-40% came somewhat damaged. Most often there's a crease/seam split on either the sleeve or the jacket/gatefold and sometimes also a bent corner. And of all that, maybe 3-5 came really badly damaged. So yeah, I am used to that.

Thing is... FtM is really special to me, it's my most favourite TMV album and I've been waiting ages for an official repress to happen finally.

Alright I'll stop blabbering, haha. Will report back when it arrives.
