I was in Germany recently and in a record shop I found a sealed copy of De-loused in the Comatorium with a white sticker on the front saying "reissue". They were selling it for 30€.

Since I have an original I didn´t buy it.

 

There is a copy of this unofficial reissue on discogs at the moment.

 http://www.discogs.c...3?ev=bp_rel_det

 

Does anyone own this or know anything about it?

Germany has been pumping some boots lately.  I ended up buying an unofficial Channel Orange that came from there because the official release seems to be lost in limbo.

I have the original. I bought one of these black vinyl boots too just to see.

I'll let u know what's up with it once it shows up. Ordered from EU so it'll be a little while tho.

Will do. I'm thinking about putting it thru a buddy's digital turntable recorder thingy and comparing the data to the CD version and/or the official release to find out what the hells going on with it.

I bet it was cut from a CD (or even mp3s). That's how most bootlegs are made.

I'll make it a little mission to find out. This friend is already digitizing all my old mountain goats vinyl that never got a digital or CD release for posterity.

Just got the black version. That shit is seriously almost identical in packaging. The colors are a little bolder instead of looking almost misty or dull, the pics are all exactly the same: front, back, gatefold area, inner sleeves. The spine is the only real difference. They look nothing alike on the spine. The fake Deloused doesn't have Mars Volta font lettering or the little red guys dancing on the spine. But seriously... IDENTICAL! Except for the colors. It's such a close packaging that no doubt there will be a few swindlers out there. Now we must get spine / vinyl pics before buying Deloused.

I'd listen to it now but I got a political event to go to. Free booze and finger food! Fuck ya, America!

I'll try to give it a listen tonight.

Just listened to the black Deloused. Definitely like a CD mastering. So, mp3 or wav quality rip later pressed onto vinyl. The difference is clear immediately.

It's still a fine pressing tho. Clean and clear and no defects save a couple pops. But if ur looking for that special sound that only comes from perfectly mastered vinyl, this might not be ur reissue of Deloused.

Joel,

I am still seeking a Deloused, much like countless unlucky others. Could you do us a favor and take a picture of the 2 spines together and point out the bootleg? I would be greatly appreciative!

I am hoping they just go ahead and make an official reissue (180 gram), I am not interested in purchasing a knock off or spending $200+ for the original (I would just save the$200+ for the GITD Frances).

Haha ya I can understand. At least the bootleg is only half the price of the real one. But it's not a proper vinyl rip. Seems like it'd be just as easy (and way better) to take the real vinyl, digitize it, and put that on a newly pressed bootleg. Then, really, people probly wouldn't have a problem with it. But that's probly more work than most bootleggers wanna do.

ll do the spines tonight. In the above pictures, the 'fake' is on the left, original on the right. But I'll snap a pic of the spines for u guys since they are so different.

O ya, and the vinyl is nice and heavy. Good quality vinyl (maybe 180) but the grooves are very shallow and take up hardly any space on each side.

So here are the spine pics. It was harder than it should been. Mostly cause I'm a shaky Fuck. But the first set is the real Deloused and the last two are the 'fake'. The difference is hella stark. Its almost as if the makcouldnt scan the spine and didnt have access to the mars volta font. Which is funny because even I have the mars volta font on my word.

Using GSL's release code?  Fuck they do not even care about how shifty they are being.  I really hope this motivates Omar+Cedric to release some proper reissues.  I have mine, but I'd probably buy a reissue of the first three albums just to have doubles of the glory era.

Yup.

My pics suck but the inner sleeve with the credits, etc is exactly the same with all the trademarks and attributions too.

Whoever made it took hi quality scans of every flat surface and had them printed. They couldn't do it with the spine so they just wrote out all the same text.

Perfect Joel! Thanks! That is really shifty on the bootleggers. I will continue to wait for a proper reissue or if I can find a good deal. Thanks again!

If Omar cares not about releasing this median, then i care not about buying a supplement. I'll buy a real one or two if it is ever released, hopefully on 180g.  The picture discs are atrocious.
