Quote from: the science eel on June 21, 2022, 02:20:12 PMI really don't understand why anyone alive would want such a thing.Waters is a wanker, the 'music' is shit, it's overpriced. it's all absolute shit. Seriously! What gives?
Quote from: Sex Festival Organizer on June 22, 2022, 08:27:13 PMTonight I was at my favourite bar-cum-record-store, and I noticed this:The sticker might look like it says 79.00, but it's actually 1879.00, which is approx. 200 quid. And I was just thinking, who on earth would pay that much money for something like this? I mean, I don't mind The Stones, but this is surely ridiculous.
Quote from: holyzombiejesus on June 22, 2022, 09:04:59 PMThat's not actually too bad. 18 7" singles for 200 is on the pricey side but it's not extortionate.
Quote from: Ron Maels Moustache on June 23, 2022, 08:50:17 AMHMV recently reopened in my town after several years absence, with the music section having a heavy vinyl focus. Unfortunately it's all expensive new releases/reissues with an average low-end price of around £30. To me that really starkly emphasises the difference between what records used to be (mass-produced, functional, affordable) and what they've become (a luxury item aimed at collectors with more money than sense).I bet they'll have to start marking stuff down eventually though, no way will they shift all those discs at that price point.
Quote from: Wayman C. McCreery on June 22, 2022, 10:42:24 PMGuess how much the upcoming reissue of Bowie's is. Double black vinyl, no extras.Spoiler alert£51.99https://www.normanrecords.com/records/143730-david-bowie-earthling[close]My indie of choice sent a message out to say that they're appalled at the wholesale price and are refusing to stock it. Fair fucks.Spoiler alertWholesale price is £35. Mad.[close]
Quote from: lazyhour on June 22, 2022, 08:32:23 PMI seriously doubt anyone's gonna top this in the value-for-money stakes: £38 for a two-track Paul McCartney 12" single.Thirty-eight pounds. That's nineteen pounds per song.https://www.roughtrade.com/gb/paul-mccartney/women-and-wives
Quote from: the science eel on June 23, 2022, 09:13:20 AMThat's what I thought when they reopened the Workington branch a few years ago. But no, it's still full of CRAZEEEE priced vinyl, there's never any fucker in there, it's a mystery how they keep going.Do they get funded by other businesses or something?
Quote from: holyzombiejesus on June 23, 2022, 10:27:29 AMHMV never seem to learn. Fopp neither. Their whole raison d'etre is selling music and video in a physical format. In an ever shrinking market you'd think that they'd realise that value would be a main driver for getting customers through the doors but instead they're probably the most expensive place you can buy vinyl. Quite what Fopp's playing at I don't know. A friend wanted the Lemonheads reissue and it was about £10 more in Fopp than Piccadilly Records. I spend at least £200 a month on records and never even browse the racks in HMV. They'll go bust again soon and there will be all the usual hand wringing and people will lose jobss and all because the owners are fucking clueless.
Quote from: Fonz on June 23, 2022, 10:20:53 AMThe really strange thing about the two HMVs near me is the large amount of weird Japanese and American sweets and fizzy pop, that are extortionately priced £3-5 for some weird pop or exotic kitkat style candy. I've never seen anyone buy any. Similar to the americandy money- laundering shops, perhaps?

Quote from: purlieu on April 11, 2022, 04:00:19 PMYou won't find disc rot on anything produced after the early '90s. There were only a couple of plants responsible for it.
Quote from: purlieu on June 23, 2022, 02:35:29 PMI sometimes wonder when labels are going to start printing collectors' sleeves so they don't have to fork out to make actual vinyl albums that will never, ever get played.

Quote from: Starlit on June 23, 2022, 05:20:05 PMUnfortunately it's happening again.A range of discs from Sonopress start to rot, such as the mid 2000s Can hybrid SACDs.
Quote from: purlieu on June 23, 2022, 09:52:51 PMOh yeah, I started a thread about that at the time. The most ludicrous thing about it being that the box costs way more than your average CD. Thankfully it doesn't seem to have caught on.
