Ridiculous music rip-offs


I really like the album, wish theyd put it on vinyl too!

it was worth it at the time because they had a bunch of artists i like, did snazzy ltd versions of stuff and gave you discounted shipping of like $10 for orders separate to the monthly 7". then they contracted it out to a UK based distributor to keep costs low and it all went to shit, pre-orders would turn up 2 months after release, i ended up with about 6 copies of one album because all of them were massively warped.

do miss getting a random 7" in the post every month though

Thats a shame.
Looked a good setup.
I had a sub with Damnably pre March 2020 and it was excellent tbh. Think it was 100 or 120 quid a year and you got 12 releases minimum iirc as well as 2 from the back catalog of your choice and a few tshirts and bits as well a couple times. Got cool exclusives and signed bits too.
Dont think theyve brought it back since putting it on ice.

These are the ones I released

There’s a copy of the first one for sale from a shop in Greece(!!) and a copy of the second for sale from a record shop in Edinburgh I used to walk past a lot.

Neither of these are rip-offs at those prices. Bargains! Absolute bargains!

That’s cool to see how far and wide records can spread.

This has just reminded me a shop in Tokyo took copies of both - they got in touch to ask and paid upfront, which was really nice on both counts. Think this kinda stuff was very hot there at the time.

That’s great.
Tokyo was almost overwhelming with its record stores when I’ve been.
Are they on streaming at all?
Be cool to have a wee listen.

Sadly not - I didn’t even do digital releases for either of these, I don’t even have mp3s of them myself now :smiley:

The a-side of the Projections single is on YouTube though

The Popular Workshop one was re-recorded for their album and that came out on a proper label so that should be on streaming.

Used to love popular workshop. Seem to remember them being good live.

Not as egregious as some, but 60 for a 2xLP. Bespoke jacket eh?

Aren’t all jackets bespoke in someway?


RSD of course!

Quite. Unless they’re using the jackets from all the unsold Adele LPs clogging up Goodwill shops, they are.

A tidy £7million for a single morning’s work there, assuming she shifts all 115,000 copies - which she will


I get that people will know what they can reasonably expect, still feels a bit much to ask people to pre-order an unannounced album though

Seem to vaguley remember Warpaint doing this for their last album/tour?

It’s not really a rip-off, probably the wrong thread I suppose. They’ve probably just messed up their schedule and had an album announcement planned for before now, just seems a little off for them to be putting a £50 triple-vinyl album up for sale with no other information, release date or anything.

It’s definitely a rip off.
