    Apparently this can preordered later today from the Madame Zuzu’s website. First pressing will be limited to 250 copies. It’s not clear if there will ever be another vinyl pressing or a further release on a different format (digital maybe?).

    Is anyone planning on getting this?
    I’m not sure. I think it’ll be rather expensive, to buy and to ship.

    I’m going to try to secure a copy. The store page has been taken down. so something is happening. I’m surprised more people aren’t talking about this. I suppose it is a niche release. But I think it could be cool.

  • #47419

    i don’t understand why they always have to take down a site or webpage to do a little update. what kind of crappy website management is that? surely this isn’t necessary?

    in one of those posts about aegea, it says there will be 50 copies on coloured vinyl. are you going for one of those?

    i can’t really judge this, but i guess the interest level is quite low. and at $60, it’s a bit silly to buy this in the hope it’ll sell out quickly, and that you’ll be able to make a profit. i think it might be hard to make a profit on $60. it’s not a smashing pumpkins release. (and even then… it’s not like they’re extremely popular on the collector’s market today.) so these will normally go to people who want this for themselves, either because they’re interested in the music (and can afford the expensive first pressing), or because they’re collectors.
    or maybe i’m wrong about this, and these will be going for $200 on ebay in a couple of days. who knows?

    apparently the first 50 orders get the coloured vinyl. EDIT: i guess i read that incorrectly. it doesn’t say that anywhere. or does it? it just says that 50 copies of the first pressing were on coloured vinyl. not who will get these copies. maybe the coloured copies are reserved for promo and zuzu’s (the copies that one can buy at the tea shop).

    A 2nd pressing went up. numbers 250-500 Red. It says they are signed and numbered as well . I managed to get one. The music might be whatever. But I actually like having ambient shit playing when I have friends over and am not paying much attention.

    at work now and before. it was hilarious to witness the 36 minute delay. i expected nothing less! but also annoying to put work aside and have to sit there and wait for whoever to get their shit together.

    bought a copy of both editions. my order # is quite high, so i’m pretty sure i won’t be getting aqua, limited to the 50 first people who are lucky to hit refresh exactly 36 minutes after an announcement.

    kinda lame, but exciting as a collector. been collecting other bands’ vinyl in the interim. cheap, too.

    it doesn’t actually say that the aqua coloured vinyl copies will go to the first 50 people who order it.
    if you read that description, it just says that the first 50 copies of the first pressing will be on coloured vinyl.
    (or is there an other source that explains who will receive a coloured vinyl copy?)

    also weird how the description of the first pressing contains information about the second pressing: "Please note: Due to strong demand for this additional pressing, delivery of your edition might take slightly longer than the first; as an order for another round of records will have to be put in."
    a bit messy. someone’s been copy-pasting in the wrong direction, it seems.

    i may have read that the same as you did as well, but my order number was sequential (around the 250 mark – i guess i just made it). it just makes me think the #’d copies will go with the #’d order’s, um, numbers. but then again, that would be asking A LOT to pull off for whomever is actually fulfilling this order. i fully expect a damaged or warped, green, double A sided 7" copy that plays a demo version of tarantula.

  • #47435

    it’s not impossible that the coloured vinyl copies will be the 50 copies they set aside to sell at zuzu’s and limited vinyl, and for promotion. (the amount of copies matches…)

    i don’t think the order number will match the number on the record. (what’s the point?)

    note that they probably didn’t start at order number 1 either, for aegea: these are order numbers of the zuzu’s webshop. all previous orders from the zuzu’s website must’ve gotten a number too. i guess they started at 1 when the webshop opened.
    (if your order for the first pressing had a number around 250, they can’t have started at 1: only 200 copies of the first pressing were for sale online.)

  • #47436

    well, i was completely wrong when i wasn’t expecting a lot of interest. i didn’t see that coming, to be honest.

    450 copies sold at $60, that’s $27k. i guess they just funded a couple of extra months of selling peanuts at zuzu’s.

    do you think they’d have sold 450 copies of this if this wasn’t a limited release (announced as limited to 250)? i’m not so sure.
    maybe announcing 500 copies from the start would already have caused less interest.

    of course those 450 would have sold: 450 is still very limited for a BC release.
    an unlimited release might have been a whole different ‘game’, i.e. at least not a massive rush at the start, but then again: with colour pressings in the front of the print run that might have been an incentive to be early even then.

    what boggles the mind quite a bit is that people had access to the live show drizzle and still wanted to buy this plain horrible excuse for experimental electronic music. it’s all in the fame / big name game, I know, but still: 60 USD for utter bs is still 60 USD too much, signed, numbered, whatever.

  • #47440

    it was probably the smartest way to sell this: unheard music, limited, numbered, at $60. (which i find expensive for a double lp.)
    i think this got them more money than a standard release, where people would have had a chance to hear some of the music first, not that limited, at a cheaper price.

    for sure; if this would have been out there – even the one snippet – with a non-limited (and blahblah) release, in a standard release fashion it would have gone totally deservedly down the drain…

    so, all in all; well done BC for being able to sell this at this price with just some secrecy concerning the material and a limited edtion (or make that two of those already…). nice one, especially seeing how many people fell for it, like lemmings.

    I read that it would be experimental music – and wanted to hear it first (try before you buy!) so I was glad that I was able to hear the audio before clicking on ‘checkout’. I was thinking it would sound instrumental like ‘Hope’ or ‘Depresso’ ….but it sounds like spaceship arrival music :)

    Nice for those who want the vinyl/artwork/autograph – pretty cool item for hardcore collectors. Those ones selling on ebay though… :roll:

    I bought one of the 1st, 3rd vinyl pressings at ZuZus. I went through the vinyl there. There was no colored at ZuZus. I tend to think they were used as promo stuff first then sold randomly to customers. Just my two cents

  • #47449

    isn’t the 3rd (single disc) pressing on coloured vinyl? (lavender?) i think i’ve seen pictures of that.
    or was it part coloured, part black vinyl, just like the first pressing?

    i got my copy today. acqua vinyl. aw yeah!

    i’m happy with that, but i’m a bit disappointed by the price. customs added another 30 euro to the already quite expensive price tag, making it a total of $125. lovely. :? (note that the price would’ve been the same if i had received a copy on black vinyl.)

    I have a little trick for that. First ship it from seller to a friend in the US, then let this friend ship it to you after taking away the tax authority info sheet. Then let him make up a new tax authority info sheet that will state its a (secondhand, if possible) product for a way lower price. For NL this price should be below $50, since above $50 will be taken from the plane/boat whatever, and taxed, I noticed. Just a tip… :)

    All I can say is that I’m hoping to receive a black single disc version from the 3rd pressing. I didn’t plan to pick up a copy at all (let’s say I’m not a fan of all BC releases, I’m the Cherub Rock -> An Ode To No One -> 7 Shades Of Black type of guy) but when a good friend happened to visit Madame ZuZu’s, he picked up a copy for me anyway. I’m hoping it’s a The Best Of release of Aegea, I might play it a few times after all… ;)

    yeah, i’m waiting for an audio rip of the vinyl. i mean, i purchased 4 copies, but i don’t have a record player (atm) or any way to rip the music. i’m excited to hear the \"music\". i might like it, i might not. not too concerned, i am a fan of billy corgan and don’t mind supporting his efforts. i will say it’s getting harder and harder though. like waiting for someone to grow up and then just having to walk away at some point.

  • #47459

    what about the \"lavender\" vinyl copies? has anyone ever seen any of those? and are these definitely \"third pressing\" (aka single disc)?
    i believe i’ve seen a picture on spnexus.com, and it mentioned that this was the third pressing, but now i’m confused.

    i was wondering, if you have a third pressing, did they use the same sleeve and same insert? or did they print a different insert for the single disc edition (with a shorter tracklist)? and what about the sleeve? is it the gatefold 2lp sleeve, but with only one record inside, or is it a different sleeve?

    also, these \"third pressing\" copies are numbered on the sleeve (as is the case on the other pressings), but are they also signed by bc (on the back of the sleeve)?

    here’s a little overview. is this correct?
    first pressing (double LP): 50 copies on acqua vinyl (1-50), 200 copies on black vinyl (51-250), signed and numbered.
    second pressing (double LP): 250 copies on red vinyl (251-500), signed and numbered.
    third pressing (single LP): 500 copies on black and lavender vinyl, numbered (501-1000). (are they signed?)

    ‘HELLO, IT’S ME’/AN ADORE-AEGEA-RAVINIA-RESISTANCE PRO-AP AWARDS-MONUMENTS TO AN ELEGY-DAY FOR NIGHT-AND MACHINA-SIDDHARTHA UPDATE BY WPC

    July 25, 2014

    Hello, everyone! Yes, it’s me again, blustering away….

    I’ll start first with last night’s AEGEA event, which though sparsely attended was quite affable and featured a short, one hour ‘impressions’ on AEGEA set on The Music Machine Modular. Now, for posterity’s sake, let me say that if I’d announced there’d be live music I think (as before) we would have been inundated with requests and the like for reserved seating, advanced info, and so on. But it’s not always easy to strike the right balance at Zuzu’s, the capacity being small, and our events, though all cool, being of different stripes. In the case of AEGEA release party, it was to simply offer some freshly-minted 3rd edition copies for sale (the lavender press), have a laugh, and record an AEGEA live set for later release. So in that I’d it was a great success, and thank you to those who came. And if you’re interested, the ‘MUSIQUE CONCRETE’ installation is still there, on display, for a month.

    As a side note, there are those who’ve not yet received their 1st edition press of AEGEA. This probably means you’ve got a colored vinyl coming, the number being low of the 250. On the 2nd edition, we’re just now getting those. Don’t ask, but let’s just say that when someone tells you something is shipped and it hasn’t, there is no way to combat that other than to apologize. I know in the future I’ll handle such timetables and contingencies differently.

    […][/quote:1lclw0ax]
    it’s not really clear how many of the 500 \"third edition\" copies are on lavender vinyl. i read that as \"all 500\", but that does not seem to be accurate.

    yes, there’s a number on my insert. it’s the amount of seconds that is all one really needs.

    when you say "1st pressing, that was given away at the record release party", do you mean the first record of the third pressing, aka nr. 501/1000?
    (because i read on spnexus.com that this was the copy that was going to be given away, signed and personalised.)

    so the 3rd pressing does come on both lavender and black vinyl? you’ve seen both. correct?

    the acqua vinyl definitely does have some marbling going on.

    yeah, the red is strong and beautiful, and there is some 1-2% black marbling going on. similar to the teargarden 7\"s.

    i don’t have any other colors and can’t afford them right now. will have to wait.

    i think my black 1st edition also contains some black marbling, but it could just be the original black. it’s hard to discern.

    Little extra detail about the third pressing; this is from the announcement of the Aegea release party at Zuzu’s:

    But wait, there’s more: a 2nd prize will be offered, which will be a signed and personalized 1st copy from AEGEA’s 3rd printing, copy 501 of 1000. With additional copies in-store and offered at 32.99$.[/quote:2shsdmhk]
    So even though the third pressing is only numbered and not signed, the copy with the number 501 is signed and personalised.
    I’m not sure if this exception is worth mentioning on the spfreaks entry. Maybe not.

    Who knows, the lighting in zuzus isn’t the best in spots. It’s possible they were all colored and I couldn’t see that. I was the guy opening the vinyl to check numbers while tea goes gave an uncomfortable stare. So I wasn’t as focused

  • #47473

    i see.

    so you were focusing more on the numbers than on the vinyl colour.
    and it’s possible you thought lavender records were black because you were expecting black vinyl.
    but it’s also possible that the ones you checked were black, but the ones you grabbed were lavender. (you didn’t check all of them, or did you?)
    correct?

    so all the numbers you saw were in the 501-1000 range?

    I stand FULLY corrected. Indeed, Geo grabbed a copy for me (told me it was supposed to be a 3rd pressing single disc black copy, but it clearly isn’t lol), but he still has it. So I just received a photo of my copy of Aegea, it’s number 554/1000:

  • #47475

    all right, thanks.
    so until someone can prove that the third pressing exists on black vinyl, there’s no reason to believe it does.

    this picture also answers my question about the 1LP insert: it is indeed different from the 2LP insert. the tracklist only lists two sides, instead of four.
    excellent.

    The aqua vinyl version were definitely not given to the first 50 people, who ordered. I got a first pressing nr. 6x/250 on black vinyl (ordered directly, when the link to order appearded). my girlfriend ordered two minutes later her copy (101 order numbers between my and her order) and she got the aqua version with the nr. 2x/250 ;-) At the end it was luck and we are both happy ;-) If you look on twitter and instagram, it seems that most of the aqua vinyls were given outside the US (I´m living in Europe,).

    By the way: does anyone know, if the handwritten \"Thank You\" Card, that comes with the vinyl, is written by BC himself (I don´t think so). And what is with the handwritten vinyl number?

  • #47477

    i also had the impression that most of the acqua vinyl copies went to europe. could this be the case?

    i don’t think i got that thank you card. i saw it on a picture, but i haven’t found it on my copy.

    I’m pretty sure the thank you card is not written by BC. The numbers on the insert either

    the thank you card looks a lot like billys signature I thinkl (but I don´t think, that he has written it), the numbers doesn´t look like it´s written by Billy (the numbers are totally different).

  • #47480

    i found a picture of a thank you card.
    there doesn’t seem to be a signature on it.
    is the thank you card you have (or have seen) different, saturnine79?

    i still haven’t listened to this.

    yes it´s the same. We got two copies, but just in one there were this card in it.

    i’ll use this thread’s (mostly bram/geo) research to write out the explanatory text. please review for accuracy!!![/quote:1jgylnar]
    first pressing (double LP): 50 copies on acqua vinyl, 200 copies on black vinyl, signed and numbered (acqua: 1-50; black: 51-250).

    it is numbered. the seller photoshopped the number out.

    probably to avoid being recognised by zuzu’s, who might have kept a record of who got which number.
    but i don’t think zuzu’s did that.
    and even if they did, why try to stay anonymous when selling this? what’s wrong with sellling a record, besides maybe seeming a little ungrateful?

    on top of that, how anonymous are you anyway? how many acqua copies do you think they sent to sydney? if they kept a record, they’ll probably know who the seller is quickly, even without the number.
