Although not entirely sure what just yet, I will definitely be selling a red and a brown Epitaph pressing of Sleep Is For The Week - opened, but unplayed. So I thought I would offer them here first if anyone is interested?
I'd be interested in TFTY splatter discs version if you're willing to part with them.

No chance, sorry. Just parting with doubles.

So about this Record Store vinyl. There are two versions, yeah?

An UK/Europe version with ten tracks limited to 1000(?) and a US version with 12 tracks limited to 3000(?).
95 gigs in 21 countries...

Interesting. I'm surprised it's not the other way round or 2k in each.

Really? Vinyl is far more popular in America than Europe.

The vinyl market in the UK is actually kind of rubbish. It's picking up compared to a few years ago, but on the whole it's still a niche market. There was just shy of 1.3 million records sold in the UK in 2014, compared to 9.2 million in the US. There was still 54.7 million CD sales in the UK in the same year, despite a steady annual decline of about 8%. So all in all, it's a still a small part of the market

Yeah...I know these things...call it market research.

I found a source saying: In 2014 the US made 181,6 million US-Dollar. Germany was on second place with 34 million $ and UK on third place with 31,7 million $. Which made me wonder, as bands always say they do not sell any vinyl while they're on tour in the UK, but they do while they're in Germany. I expected the gap to be a bit bigger...

Speaking of vinyl, Xtra Mile have just reissued England Keep My Bones on vinyl, and it's excellent.

Anyone who has the original pressing will know that it was clearly done as an after thought, by what I suspect is someone in house at Epitaph who wasn't given much time. There were a number of (shall we say) unusual choices regarding the layout, such as not including the pencil notes with the lyrics, the lyrics themselves not covering the entire inner sleeve leaving big gaps, and the spindle hole going directly through Frank's head. So when it came to the repress, I convinced them that they should let me do the layout again, making it much closer to the CD version. So it is now a gatefold with the lyrics (including penicl notes) spread across it, a new inner sleeve and labels, and on heavy weight paper and 180g vinyl. In fact, not one thing is the same as I even changed the cover so it would also be the same as the CD.

I don't usually like to blow my own trumpet, but I am really really pleased with this one.

Reading your post alone makes me want to buy the repress. It is really inspiring reading your post and seeing how much attention to detail you pay to things you love.

Thanks dude. The artwork of the EKMB vinyl release has always annoyed me, so I wanted to put it right as the CD artwork is phenomenal.

I don't actually know to be honest, but I would imagine 1000 or 2000.
