  1. Any word yet on vinyl reissues? I would love to get my hands on some 180 gram copies of these albums, especially since it’s hard to find a copy in decent condition!

    • Hey Vinny,

      I suspect we’d see more vinyl reissues if the record companies realized there is a viable market for them. In terms of supply and demand, MP3s rule. We’re a mobile culture — wired, plugged in, and busy — and that means we require portable music on demand. The exploding MP3 market has not only revolutionized how record companies market music, it has impacted the way in which contracted artists record and release their music.

      For those interested in the phenomenon, Blixa Bargeld offers some interesting observations about the impact of MP3s on recordings artists, in “The Media Landscape” — a clip from an hour long interview with WNYU radio’s PunkCast, January 2004. It’s in our archives HERE.

      Ironically, in spite of the Mp3 download revolution and plummeting CD sales, it appears that vinyl is enjoying a resurgence. Personally, I prefer vinyl records and the attendant ritual of acquiring and playing them. For those who know and love vinyl, there is no comparison to the CD non-experience in my opinion. FWIW, I googled ‘vinyl vs. cd’ and got 7,210,000 hits. Yeah. That debate will go on, like The Beat.

      Vinny, good luck with your Nick Cave vinyl Quest. Keep us posted if you acquire any goodies. BTW: Check Deb’s Boys Next Door page to see photos from her collection of early Cave vinyl’s. Rare beauties.

  2. I’ve been meaning to ask you lovelies if you would want to link to me from your blog…I know my blog’s more silly, so understandable if you don’t – figured I’d ask, though.

    On a relevant side – we’ve waited long enough for these reissues! *shakes fist* It’ll be worth it, though. 🙂

    • I will certainly add you to the Blogroll. I’ve been meaning to update links. Thanks for the reminder. 😀 The US release date – omg! Another manufacturing glitch? That was the excuse last time. Grrrrr.
