Just dragged myself out of my sick bed (cough cough.....hurrrrl!) to check out what was going on, went over to Rockreport and one of the good folk there have reported that it looks as though Davy Vain has released All Those Strangers. But it's limited to 500 copies, as he says...hurry...grabbed mine!

 

Here's the link!

Now I'm off back to bed...see you all in a day or to when this passes and I have the energy to do anything...I summoned up extra reserves to spread the word! :christmas:

Well, there you go. Proof I will be bankrupt next year! I immediately went to order and was taken aback by the $11.70 postage costs, but then noted this was for 1-6 CDs and there is no individual postage cost for one CD. So I did what probably most of us clowns do, and "to save money" (LOL!!!!) I bought 5 more CDs. :( Oh well, at least I finally picked up HEAT's disc... and some cool re-issues from Heavy Pettin' and Y&T to round up the collection. At the end of the day, though, I'm just f*cking excited about this Vain disc! I can't believe I'll finally have a proper copy of it. :D

 

Thanks for the heads up Nick, and get well soon!

Is this for sale anywhere else?

 

Surely Davy is going to get this released through somewhere else like NEH.

 

 

I want this cd very badly but $11.70 for shipping is a fucking ripoff.

So until someone else can sell it cheaper I can't buy this right now.

HAHA! You should have seen my post before I edited about 5 times, right after I'd seen the $11.70 postage. The language was most colourful. I can see that this encourages idiots (like me) to buy 6 CDs in order to get my money's worth, but it's pretty unfair to people who just want to pick up one CD.

 

As for elsewhere, cousin, I have looked all over the net and I can't find it anywhere - not even info on it... even direct from Davy's website. :( I checked NEH too and no luck. I have no idea why, but this seems to be the only place it's available at the moment.

As I have already mentioned somewhere else, you can thank the German postal service for these high shipping cost. It costs me 6 Euros - an equivalent to app. $8.60 - to ship 1 CD to the US, and the same for about 5 CD's (500g).

 

This is not MusicBuyMail's (Sebastian) fault.

 

I just ordered one of those Vain's as well. Hopefully I will still get one ...

As others have said I will wait to hear about the quality and surely Davy will get this available elsewhere.

 

I would much rather he get this issued through a label that can put together a good booklet and remaster it properly ala Rock Candy Records.

is this a silver pressing or cdr...

 

No one seems to know yet.

 

I did email Mike and NEH Records and he said it he didn't know anything about it but he was going to look into it. I fear that this is just another cdr but this time it's the band selling them.

 

I want a proper release of this disc so bad from Rock Candy, Sun City or Eonian with great packaging.

It is definitely a silver pressed CD. I bought a copy at the gig in Nottingham a couple of weeks ago.

Is that positively a replicated CD? Or just diamond silver bottom CD-R out of confusion of appearance. People are getting confused by these brands these days.

Does this CD have a barcode?

 

I would like to get this if it is Silver-Pressed in true.

Yes, there's a barcode and on the opposite side CD1006

A Partially Burned CD-R

Recording starts at the CD's center and spirals outward. You can tell if a CD-R was burned by looking for the slight change in reflectivity on the recording side. In this example, the arrow points to the end of the small recorded area; less than 6% of the total 700MB.

 

 

 

None of that either.

Barcode is usually 12 or 13 numbers on the outside tray depending on country.

Is there an IFPI number pressed into the plastic on the inner ring?

 

 

No, neither of those.

 

Damn. Not looking good so far. Most CD replicators these days (some are lacking) have the IFPI number from their molds pressed into the plastic. It shows that the CD disc was actually injection molded during pressing not like a CD-R duplication which uses pre-made discs.

 

What does the light spectrum on the bottom look like compared to a known 'Silver-Pressed' CD under a bright light? A real silver-pressed disc will show a subdued rainbow spectrum while most CD-R light spectrums are damn blinding because of the dye.

Whether it's a cd or a cdr it still begs the question why Davy isn't selling this on his site.

 

Would be good if they included lyrics, photos and biography of the band and a story to why this cd took took so long to be released.

 

Hope this gets released elsewhere as not paying 17 GBP to buy a cd in Germany when I live in the UK.

If copies hit ebay it may go for stupid prices :(

 

Still I only ever dreamed this would get released so a step in the right direction, now if only that Blackfish 2nd cd would be re-released.

Seems odd seeing as he's selling them at gigs already, maybe he needs to speak to his webmaster...or maybe he'll add it if there's any copies left post tour, obviously MBM have secured some copies.

Still looking forward to getting it but I'm not expecting it until post Christmas/New Year.

    • I know I've posted about this hombre several times before, but apparently not in his own thread. This must change as I find him to be so awesome but no one seems to acknowledge his existence. Not just here, but his youtube channel and reach seems to be so small. Crazy for someone who produces bone crunching quality on a madly consistent basis.  Eric Dalton     -    Playing Favorites (2022) 1    .    Calling Card 2    .    Oblivion 3    .    Head in the Clouds 4    .    X My Heart 5    .    Infection 6    .    My Demons 7    .    Solace 8    .    A Part of Me 9    .    Without You 10    .    Deception     Sorry, I know I've posted this before, but his youtube channel features all three of his (excellent) albums in full if interest permits. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCb2I3-4_UvFnWWTcXBBLPYA  
    • Interesting what bands catch on this forum and the ones that don't. To me, this is a pretty good band and I'm a bit surprised, on a forum where bands like Shiraz Lane and Bad City are appreciated, there seems to be no interest in these guys. Good band that does, for whatever reason, remind me of the likes of the aforementioned Bad City.  There's a bit of hit and miss about the debut and it's far from perfect, but a pretty cool band worthy of mention and interest on a forum such as this.  Anyway, this was one of my favourites of the album- For die-hards, I stumbled across this non-album track.  
    • New video for 'I Will Be Stronger' feat. Joel Hoekstra.    
    • Very nice piece of modern rock on offer here. Lot to like on this one.  Fame on Fire     -    Welcome to the Chaos 1    .    Intro 2    .    Welcome to the Chaos (feat. Spencer Charnas of Ice Nine Kills) 3    .    Ketamine 4    .    Cut Throat 5    .    Emo Shit (feat.

    • Welcome, album of the year? Love this project with vigour. I snuck 'Saturday' on the playlist I put on with the kids in the car, lol. Can't wait to hear any of the songs I haven't already heard and showered in love from this. 
    • Did anyone notice these guys released another new album?  As expected, it's pretty weak and more proof of their solid decline.  HOWEVER!  There is actually a good song on it. It's only one, but I kind of clapped and cheered when I heard this. I used to love these guys so much, and still love the albums I always loved from these guys but it's been some barren years. It was good to hear them do what they used to do with great ease.      
    • Couple of okay songs, but otherwise as expected above. No surprises, exactly what you'd expect from these guys in 2022.     
    • Not every song is a hit, but another pretty decent one mini-album. I like some of the gear on this one.  Villain of the Story     -    Divided 1    .    Never Again 2    .    Jester 3    .    Karma 4    .    Under My Skin 5    .    Losing Control 6    .    Wrong 7    .    Don't Go 8    .    Divided    
    • Not sure if folk know, but they got back together and released an EP this year. Anberlin     -    Silverline 1    .    Two Graves 2    .    Nothing Lost 3    .    Body Language 4    .    Asking 5    .    Circles It's not amazing, but I do really like this song from it-  
    • Not an amazing album, but pretty solid with a couple of very nice tunes-     They have a very comprehensive youtube channel for anyone unsure and wanting to give everything a listen- https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCYECJVZLOQebjAuj_HMKLjg
