Q:i don't understand why you'd press only 200 clear records and 100 black of the ceres album, then announce you're doing a 500 yellow variant? why woudn't you just do 800 straight up? and you should have done less yellow and added another colour as well imo.
True, the first press was only 300 (200 clear / 100 black), but this was done on the basis the band were playing to tiny hometown crowds and had never left Melbourne - and we’re talking early 2014 here.
The record has done better than expected, so the yellow 500 variant is actually a second pressing we’re now waiting to arrive.
Yes, some people like getting the rarest pressing, and multiple vinyl colours. Those who supported the band / label early have the rarest pressings now, which the band and myself are happy about. This new pressing should ensure the vinyl will be readily available for new customers for a while, and those who like getting all the variants / editions.
Q:Hey I heard some things you guys were going to sign Lincoln Le Fevre a while back. Is that true?
Q:just curious tom... how much did it cost to make those new vinyls for this will destroy you?
Not too far off what you’re paying in the online store. The entire project, lots of things to consider here aside from just manufacturing, has been Hobbledehoy’s biggest to date.
